    tennis racquet and string fitting

    I also attended OSU for my graduate degree many years, and I am also familiar with that golf course. What does Jack Grout have anything to do with this? My son was once taught by Emilio Sanchez @Sanchez-Casal tennis academy in Naples but that has nothing to do with this. Just because Scarlet...

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    That's exactly what I am looking for but more scientifically just like golf club fitting. I wish there is a way to do this in tennis instead of demoing and trial & error.

    No more gold balls for indoor tournaments.

    Instead of gold balls, cut the winner a check so that he/she can buy his/her own gold balls

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    This is complete BS. I would like to see you score close to par at either Pepble Beach Pro-AM, US Open, British Open, or the masters at Augusta. Again, another BS. If golf is such a simple game, why aren't you competing against Colin Morikawa, Brooks Koepka or Jordan Spieth?

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    I am curious. Why is the price for the same Uniqlo RF is always more expensive in both Australia and EU than in the US?

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    They might not sell you a particular but their goal is to up sale you. In other words, they are likely to sell me things that might not fit me or something expensive because they might have a deal with the manufactures. The key for me is to get an independent club fitter so that I know he/she...

    Hydrogen Sports PROTON

    You seem to quote the best scenario. The machine is 54lbs total. You can select the 40lbs with an external battery but most people will save money and get the 54lbs (internal battery).

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    I think it will a brilliant move for Uniqlo to sign the current PGA golf and recent World Golf Championship winner Colin Morikawa. He is an American but his parents are US/Chinese/Japanese herritage. Ever since he won the PGA championship last year, just about every Asian kids that play golf...

    Djokovic Lacoste outfits: full catalogue

    I purchased a beautiful Djokovic Lacoste lightweight black jacket with Novak stretch out wide backhand and Novak Djokovic underneath. I wear that in the morning in Florida when I play golf and the people I played with was wow by it. I wish I bought a few more but oh well.

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    Would you take financial advice from an fee-based independent advisor or would you take advise on a insurance sale person who is trying to sell you a product because his commission is based on selling that product, regardless whether it fit your financial need? That's what they do at Golf...

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    Is it possible to order from Europe if you are in the US? Do you have to pay Value Added Tax for it? The price is in Europe for Uniqlo is also higher.

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    I can't imagine selling my pre-owned Uniqlo to someone else or wear pre-owned clothes from someone else. Maybe when I was younger but definitely not now. That being said, saw the pre-owned Djokovic Uniqlo jacket on the bay, the exact same jacket that I also have goes for $239, insane:

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    Yes, they covered all of that. I would like to mention that this place does not sell golf equipment, they only do golf club fitting so there is no pressure for them to sell me anything. They make the recommendations and I decide to buy from anywhere I want. There is a typo in the cost, it is...

    I still don't understand what you mean by "same family as regifting". By your definition, everything is in the same family as regifting. You can find just about anyone on earth who doesn't like a particular thing.

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    How is it "regifting" if I am giving my friends what they really like. They wouldn't be able to purchase RF Uniqlo items because they get sold out very quickly.

    I might not like some of the RF Uniqlo items but my friends like them, and that I have an opportunity to buy lot of them, why not giving them to people that I like?

    Hydrogen Sports PROTON

    Maybe I should, LOL.... Kidding aside, he is a very good neighbor of mine so I might sell it to him for the original price that I paid for, and I wouldn't want the Spinfire even if it is free. No way you can get me to lift that beast in/out of the car without hurting my back. Edit. My other...

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    They actually did. During the club fitting, they notice that I hit better with the titleist pro v1 than with Callaway warbird while my son and daughter performed better with the titleist pro v1x.

    You should get Uniqlo short with zipper pocket. That's what I use and it works great. Just got a called from my other sister that she received the Pronton yesterday. She will hold it for me until I get back from Florida in April because she doesn't want to make a trip to UPS store.

    tennis racquet and string fitting

    I just got myself, my son and my daughter get golf club fitting on Monday at the cost of $450 for all three of us. The golf fitting took 2.5 hours for each of us. They measure from the driver, wood, irons, putt, SW, P, etc... It is a very detailed oriented process. At the end of the day, for...

    My sister came by my house yesterday and dropped off the Proton that she received on Monday and she gave it to my neighbor to keep it for me. My neighbor, a former D2 tennis player along with his daughter, a HS tennis player, asked me if they can test drive the Proton, and I gave them the go...

    Where is the best tennis city in the world?

    South Florida is a great place to hang out between November and April. It is brutal in the summer. I used to travel for work in Naples and Miami during the summer and it was just brutal. I avoid South Florida between May and October. Not my cup of tea. YMMV

    Natural Gut/Poly Stringing

    I've been using NG for a long time now but when it comes to stringing NG, I leave it to the professional people to string my racquet with NG on my Alpha Ghost machine. I have a Alpha Ghost 2 stringing machine and it does have the diablo.

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    There might be some truths to what you said above but I think there are multiple things in play here: 1- There are probably more Asians in the US than in the EU (I am just guessing here). There is about 5.6% of Asians in the US. That translates into about 18M people, give and take. Everyone...

    I do not see Luxilon or babolat NG I this thread. Is it because of the cost?

    You mean the European Union (EU)? Isn't that what Uniqlo doing? When I go to uniqlo website from one of my systems in Belgium, it said uniqlo EU. The EU single market is about the same as the US market. It is hard to imagine Uniqlo would stock the same quantities for the US market the same...

    RF's Uniqlo kits

    @Tennis_Hands is right. Those items are still available as of 7:53pm ET on Uniqlo Europe website for M/L size and both color for the hat but the cost is higher, almost $36 USD for the hat and $48 USD for the shirt. With the current exchange of 1 Euro for $1.20 USD. Either Unqilo produces a lot...
