    Hyper G vs Revolution

    Looking for a comparison between the two. Playing with hyperG 18g now, but like the idea of blue strings in my ultra tour. The revolutions look similar, what do they play like.

    Boeing 737 Max

    I thought the new system can be disabled, but the crash last year was because the pilots did not know how to disable it. Boeing "made it easier and "re-educated" the pilots" after that episode. Which makes this crash more confusing. Either the pilots or boeing are definitely in the wrong

    Boeing 737 Max

    I thought the issue is the autopilot gets a little confused and the pilots don't know how to turn it off (the first crash anyways). Sensed a stall and nosed down.. and wouldn't let pilots correct without them turning off the safety feature. It is like trying to drift with the traction control...

    Guess how much my emergency appendectomy cost? *invoice*

    Most hospitals provide 20-40% care for free - i.e. they are not paid a penny for the care provided. If you show up at the hospital, they can not refuse to treat non-elective/emergency conditions (see line 1). If they do they are subject to possible fines and loss of all Medicare/Medicaid...

    Tennis Warehouse Needs

    Thanks. I must be slow, but helps just to see what all is new out there. There may be something that I can't live without that I don't even know about!

    Amateur Stringer vs the Pro Shop....

    Be careful, I got a six can case for Xmas from a work colleaque, Great gift, then I opened the first can... super dead balls (even though seal/pressure intact). Later opened the other 5 cans.. all the same. Good news is my lab doesn't care about the bounce (they also all felt very heavy).

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    Update: Solecourt Boost: wore again for 2 additional singles matches. Really impressive ankle support almost like a 3/4 top without the bulk. If you have bad ankles/ankles that like to roll, these may be a good fit for you. Still no "break-in-pain" like I used to get with the barricade boost...

    New Racket Advice

    18x20 comfortable racket, old school feel -- UltraTour put a softer poly in it. I use Hylper G at 50 lbs.

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    I have received my Solecourt Boost and Adizero 3. Both are much wider than any Addias shoes I have worn in the past, and neither caused the familiar arch pain that I usually have with Barricades the first 3-5 hours of "break in". Solecourt: My usual size is 10.5, these were true to size in...

    Lead Tape

    Sorry- TW Tungsten tape is what I like, it is no longer listed on the site. Just the putty.

    Lead Tape

    What happen to the TW Lead Tape- by far the best! For me, all of the others wont stay on my racket (babalot, Wilson, Pete Sampras, and Gamma). I can't imagine that I am alone with this problem.

    Djokovic dismantled Nadal’s baseline game by going hard after his forehand.

    They took out a bone spur. He is not wearing a brace and does not appear to have his ankle wrapped. And he decimated ALL players going into this match. He should have never brought up is injury/recovery in the closing ceremony, and it really was a non-factor. Serena's ankle arguable was...

    What does Nadal's AO loss mean for the rest of ATP?

    Djoker's dominance of Nadal to me says more about the difference between the rest of the field and Djoker/Nadal/Fed - or the big 2 1/2 than it does about Nadal. Nadal was crazy good - dominant going into this Final. I was seriously worried that he was going to win and possible even easily- he...

    Serena Williams - most unlucky player in history?

    The fact that she can play at that level and do so well, makes me the overweight, overaged rec player believe I might be able to play tennis in the bigs. And in all seriousness, her play style is probably more of what I need to mimic at the rec level for success (this is probably true for a lot...

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    Broke down and order a pair my Boost were dying/sliding crazy today. Also ordered the ubersonic 3, will send back which ever pair fits less well. Having trouble stomaching the 160 for solecourt boost. Will give feedback. Also got two of the Baricarde bar shorts.. had gotten one for Xmas...

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    Inquiring minds want to know all the above and more" Is the Barricade no more? How does it compare if it is a Barricade replacement? And is it worth the extra 30-40$ (that is a 25-30% price increase too!!!)

    What is the racquet with the highest ever combined, overall playtester rating?

    I would agree. I had 5, 4 of the PS 18x20 2014 and one of the 18x20 white PS. It is a great racket, but three years into playing with it the TE beast finaly came a knocking. I have moved on the Ultra Tour- which reminds me a lot of a modern version of my old Wilson sting midplus.

    Thiem using Pure Strike

    I have four and a matching bag and 3 or 4 sets of extra grommets if you want to make me an offer. I moved on to the ultra tour. I like the frame but then started getting some TE.

    You don't want to mess with Sentinelese

    Also ironic that we argue should protect their bio/genetic diversity but then also argue that we should all be the viewed/treated the same (and like it or not, there is ever growing homogenization of peoples - at least in the US despite what people think. For the record, I believe we are all...

    You don't want to mess with Sentinelese

    Agree- The missionary was in the wrong for sure and should have been prosecuted. He did potentially expose the tribe to infection which could wipe them out (attempted genocide?) and broke laws that he was aware of to do so.

    You don't want to mess with Sentinelese

    You make a lot of assumptions about a society (tribe), that literally we know almost nothing about. Furthermore, by descriptions they know even less about the outside world. A best because of fear or ignorance, they killed another human being (not sure that they would recognize him as one or...

    Clearly their border protection/immigration is top notch. And they make what trump does to "illegals" look nice.

    How much can dropping 10-15 pounds improve someone's game?

    There is a lot of truth to this. My game "winning" didn't change because I am a big hitter and have a lot of lessons. And perhaps, because I enjoy hitting, I have gotten a little to tentative/wall like now (though most people think I still am fairly aggressive, but relative to me and...

    How much can dropping 10-15 pounds improve someone's game?

    I lost 100lbs 339 down to 235. Better endurance longer points, no change in match play, usta level. But I felt better. Currently 250-260. That was my college football playing weight, but I really would like to get back below 200...
