    Ruptured my plantar fascia, what to expect.

    I just turned 47. I had a plantar fascia release surgery at the very beginning of 2018. I’m 100% now without any problems. Before the surgery I was nearly unable to walk and definitely couldn’t run.

    Prince Classic´s Thread

    I learned to play golf with a friend of mine. He could hit any shot and I mean ANY shot. His downfall was in deciding what shot to play and mentally sticking to it. I only had one shot and eventually became a better golfer (on the scorecard) because I didn’t have to make decisions on each shot...

    Help me decide what I should get next!?

    You need some classic Prince racquets. Start with the very open 14x18 pattern 90 sq in head size. The model won’t matter that much for an initial hit.

    Most durable and serviceable ball machine

    I’ve bought and sold many. Buy the one that does the fun things you want it to do. There’s no real difference between any of them as far as mechanics goes. My experience is with Tennis Tutor, Silent Partner, and Lobster. All of their customer service departments are great. I currently use/own a...

    What should I string my POG Tour 93 at ?

    17 is plenty. Do you have a starting clamp and do you know how to make a bridge? I’ve strung on an x2 so I get what you are saying. 18’ should be plenty. From a person with experience, newer racquets require more string. String sets used to only be 36/37’ and was plenty. Even with patterns...

    What should I string my POG Tour 93 at ?

    What string are you using? Both examples we gave are of VERY flexible strings that stretch forever.

    What should I string my POG Tour 93 at ?

    32’ of synthetic gut will string any Prince 90 from the 80s as a one piece. I’ll let you decide how much for each length.

    What should I string my POG Tour 93 at ?

    Prince ProBlend @63 strung on a Prince P200 is the only way to go!

    What happened ? Why are all the classics cheap now ?

    When Roger went to the larger headsize, all classics diminished in price and demand. Bigger is better by the standards set by the pros.

    Prince Graphite II MP... box beam?

    I played it for some time. It’s a great racquet and I could definitely make it my everyday stick again.

    Can players not tell tell their racquets are unmatched?

    EXACTLY!!!!!!! or Maybe that’s why she’s not top 10? (NOT!)

    Can players not tell tell their racquets are unmatched?

    The client is likely a VERY good player and not worried about anything but string bed stiffness. I have NEVER met a very good player who obsessed over the crap people obsess over on this forum.

    Tennis Warehouse: Wilson Rush Pro 3.0 Playtest

    Toe jamming? That’s not good. When I was starting back to tennis after many years off, my big toe nail kept getting caught in my shoes and it really, really hurt. They’d get caught and pushed back in my shoes. I actually lost both big toe nails and I’m now very picky about my shoes. I cannot...

    "For a nickle I will !!"

    Maybe they'll credit your account like Best Buy would do if the price changed within so many weeks or months? A nickel saved is a nickel earned!

    Bad luck with 2019 Pure Aero... (a good lesson about not being too frugal)

    I sell used frames on there and many are old classics. I also buy similar frames there. I'm with those who say it isn't worth the slight savings or the hassle if something goes wrong if you're buying new frames. Buy from a reputable dealer and get the warranty for the new frames. I better be...

    Prince 93P 14x18 on TW

    The 97 sq in head with a 14x18 pattern was a spin monster with more power. I played with both and I'd definitely prefer the 2 over the POG.

    Is it really worth getting older ? V

    What’s the alternative to getting old? I’ll be 47 tomorrow. I’m not as good at some things and not as bad at others. Wrinkles and grey hair has slowly snuck in there at a rate that is unnoticeable until your children point it out. I also be a grandparent by May and I can still kick 20...

    Prince Spectrum Comp 90

    I think he’s wondering if you were a touring pro with a sponsorship. I’m guessing you worked at a club that sold Prince nearly exclusively as was the case in the club I frequented in the 80s.

    Anybody know when this racquet was made?

    I guess I should’ve used his proper name of Richards.

    Anybody know when this racquet was made?

    I’ll say 1988 -1995 because that was the timeline of the wide body racquets. It still wasn’t pro line quality racquet. This was one to sell at a sporting goods store such as a *****.

    Anybody know when this racquet was made?

    Solely based upon the cover, it’s from no earlier than the 90s and wasn’t something from their professional lines. It’s likely something produced for Walmart type stores. I wasn’t about to create an account just to see other photos.

    Anyone play-tested the entire Head line?

    Help me out. I played a Microgel Prestige Midplus last night. I’d been messing around trying to get the string tension right. At 57 it felt like a stiff board with no comfortable power. At 52 it was better. At 47 it finally felt comfortable. I played it at 47 last night and was banging serves...
