    How important to string crosses top down?

    I learned to string 2 piece and this worked fine for many years. In many cases I am doing hybrid setups anyway. I never really thought much about the problems associated with either extra knots, or with stringing bottom-up, which I did occasionally. I had a 6 point mounting machine and never...

    Anyone ever upgrade their machines to gravity release clamps?

    I have a SP Maestro with a Wise tension head. It seems I'm stringing more and more and would like to upgrade to gravity release clamps. I've contacted JC Tennis, Spinfire and New Tech to see what they have to say. I spoke to JC yesterday and just sent him dimensions of my current machine specs...

    Q for PS97 playtesters: Chris, Andy, Karly, Michelle

    I see that you all mention an erratic string bed for this stick but still gave it a high rating. I play tested a friends before buying; it was strung with thick syn gut at a high tension and I didn't find it to be erratic - so I'm assuming that that PS97 requires a higher tension and/or thicker...

    FS: 2 x Prince Tour 100T ESP - 4 3/8 - 8.5/10

    Unfortunately I've decided this popular racquet is just not for me. I have two for sale and will give preference to someone buying both. Both were bought new in January, 2014. Both are on 2nd string job. I would rate them higher than 8.75, but they seem to get tiny paint chips quite...

    Any disadvantages to 50/50?

    I watched Irvin's video tonight as I didn't know what 50/50 was. Great video and thanks! I will try it next week. When stringing Prince racquets I've always used the brake, which works fine, but takes some time to set and release. Are there any disadvantages to using the 50/50 method...

    53 y.o. and looking for help

    Does anyone understand the Wilson lineup?

    I’m looking to try out a few tweeners (topic of a next post) and have much easier access to Wilson demos, but what’s with the names and models? Pro-Staff, Six-one, Blade, Steam, Juice, plus another others. All of them seem to cross over in terms of weight, power, string patterns: Pro...

    Ball machines and coaching

    I was recently told by a Playmate reseller that it is becoming quite common for coaches to use high-end ball machines when working with students. The idea is that instead of the coach being at the far end of the court, he can work next to the student and spend more time analyzing, showing and...

    (18x20) - 2013 Blade or 3.0T?

    Has anyone played both? I like the specs, the reviews on both are great. Seems like the Blade wins in comfort, plow through, and a few very positive posters on tt. TW reviewers give the 3.0T tops scores for serves and ground strokes, but lacking a little plow (but I always add lead...
