    Tied off mains on wrong hole...?

    I tied off my mains on the wrong hole, it should been tied off up one hole toward the top of the racquet. I think this will be ok like this, but wanted some reassurance. It was a bit on the dark side, and the type was so small I thought I was on the right hole. Obviously it's a one time thing...

    Overgrip really adds 5-6 grams?

    Was searching the forum and reading through older posts about the weight of an overgrip. Turns out they are around 5-6 gr. ?! I'm surprised I was thinking like 1-2 gr.

    Synthetic gut doesn't show up as arm friendly on TW string finder...

    For instance, if you choose 'Synthetic Gut', '17g', and 'Soft (arm-friendly)' it yields zero results. I thought Synthetic Gut was supposed to be very arm friendly? http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/stringcontent.html

    How to add 10-15 gr and keep balance about the same?

    I'd like to add about 10 - 15 grams, but don't want to change the balance all that much... Would adding weight to the hoop, maybe 7-9 grams at 3, 9, and 12 oclock, (maybe some at 6 too?) and then adding a few grams in the end of the handle do the trick?

    Racquet stiffness ratings...

    I am wondering where these specs come from and how accurate the are. Tennis warehouse has this number, but none of the racquet manufacturers have this spec. Other retail sites that list a stiffness rating seem to get their numbers right from tennis warehouse. I am wondering if these are even...

    Gamma clamp clicking sound...

    I have the Gamma X-2. Every time I release the tension on the drop weight one of my clamps makes a clicking noise. It doesn't seem to be slipping when this happens, but it doesn't sound right. The other clamp doesn't make this noise at all. Any ideas?

    Which is these methods is best? Floating clamps question...

    So at 4:30 in this video there is a demo of starting the mains with floating clamps (no starting clamp). He shows 2 different methods, similar, but slightly different at the end. They are both east and pretty straightforward, but which is better?

    Tecnifibre Multifeel 16...

    I just had my racquet strung; requested synthetic gut and got this. But I see it's multifilament? Same thing? Anyway, I like the feel of it, doesn't move around at all. I know it will fray some which has started, but that's ok. So is this a synthetic gut? I know it's quite a bit more expensive...

    Head Prestige Pro...

    I hate demoing racquets becuse it takes a few times out with one to really get to know it; then multiply that by 4. So I usually just do a ton of research and take the plunge... Did this and got the 'Graphene XT Prestige Pro'. I've used to for about a week (4-5 times) and I'm really getting...

    Starting out with the floating clamps...

    About to get an x-2 stringer and have watched many tutorial videos so far. The whole process makes sense and I think I've got it; except for starting out with the floating clamps. It seems the placement varies on all the instructions I've looked at. Some put it on the middle 2 strings, some...

    New racquet... wrong tension...

    So I bought a new racquet. Had them string it at 50 lbs., but they messed up (still won't fully admit it) and strung it at at least 60 lbs. I had to buy the string but they strung it for free. But I can't even use the racquet now. And I bought it when I was visiting an area over 2 hours away, so...

    What's the deal with Wilson Ultra 97 vs. Ultra Tour...

    The Ultra 97 doesn't seem to be in production anymore? Or is it? Can't even find it on Wilson's website. The Ultra Tour is somewhat similar spec-wise except it's 18x20 where as the Ultra 97 is 16x19. I guess what I'm asking is do they make the Ultra97 anymore, or is it out of production?

    Head Graphene XT Prestige Pro vs. Yonex EZONE DR 98

    Looking for an arm friendly racquet. Both of these check all the boxes I am looking for as far as specs - stiffness, weight and string pattern. Never liked the shape of Yonex but I may ignore that and give it a shot if it's the right racquet for me...

    New racquet, too light...

    Bought a new racquet the other day. I think I bought the wrong racquet though, should have gotten something heavier... I got a Head Speed 300 which is 11.1 strung. I just added 12 grams of lead tape at 3 and 9 but haven't used it yet. Do you think that will be enough to help the cause, or...

    Using 2 over grips...

    I just put 2 over grips on my racquet to build up a 4-3/8 grip. I know I lose some bevel but it feels decent enough; I'll put it to the full test tomorrow when I play... Anyone else ever use 2 over grips? How did it work out?
