    Am I still stringing Luxilon too tight?

    Could just be fatigue from not playing for 8 monthes. :) I've used full BBO for years @ 55 without any pain...

    Specialized textured cross

    Its an interesting idea. Consider though, that string would be worthless as mains. It would have to be packaged specifically for crosses, and add to it the extra effort to string it for debatable's not going to sell.

    Dream Surfaces!

    Ugh. It's so fast. The ball skids so far that its hard to gauge the bounce. You get set up to hit the ball, but it bounces a lot closer and a lot faster towards you than you anticipated. I think clay sounds really fun. Indoor clay would be my favorite.

    Going to buy a stringing machine but what string do i buy?

    If you're buying your Klippermate from the company, it will come with a string package that you can practice stringing with. I strung a teammate's racquet with the Power-Burst string, and she liked it. To begin with, I'd get a few sets of cheap string- synthetic guts or multifilaments. Keep...

    Loose outside strings?

    Nope. You should be fine. If you think its too mushy, string it a few pounds tighter next time.

    How to keep track of racquet jobs

    No matter how you decide to do it, get something in the customer's writing. Desired tension, pre-existing racquet damage/wear (I always examine a racquet with the owner before I take it. I point out major paint chips, scuffs, etc.), desired strings, price, etc. Hard copies are good. Then you can...

    okay to do tournaments with un-broken-in tecnifibre?

    You'll be fine. You'll 'break it in' with a few good whacks, like Bud said. Good luck in your matches!

    Opening a Pattern

    Would it be possible to string a racquet with a more open pattern than it's designed to be? For example, could I skip some mains and/or crosses to turn my 18x20 into, say, a 16x18? Or would that destroy the frame?

    Cheap Bag

    FYI, you can usually pick up cheap bags at a sports store. If they sell tennis racquets (even cheap plastic racquets) they might carry bags.

    New racquets, what to do with old ones?

    It's easy to sell APDs. If you do want to sell them, shoot me an email. I might be interested. I keep all my old frames. My mom uses my "first" racquet, and my dad likes to hit with my old Tour 95s.

    Anyone use full Luxilon string jobs?

    I use full Luxilon. Two of my racquets are strung with full BBO Rough, and the other is full Alu Power.

    How can you string a racquet so fast?

    It takes a lot of practice to cut time. I've strung maybe 6 or 7 racquets, and my best was just over an hour.

    How different are FPS games on consoles from PC?

    I don't think the experience is much different on PC vs. console. Occasionally, one will have a few different levels/weapons/scenarios, but it's essentially the same. I like consoles more, simply because, as you said, a game made for the console will always play- you don't have to worry about...

    Who's The Best Player you've hit with?

    Took a clinic a few years ago. Mats Wilander and some guys he brought in were the coaches. I actually got to talk with him one-on-one for a bit after the session. It was sweet.
