    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    I have been playing lately due to pain (mild GE) with NG/poly at 26/24kg. Problem is i cut mains at 5-6 hrs max. As a former user of ZX I tried it fullbed at 26/25. Prestretched the life out of it and strung it. I used a winch to prestetch it so you get the idea. First 4 hours felt boardy at...

    Bought recently an action camera to use during the holidays with the family. So thought to combine usage and got to film a couple of my sessions. I was quite surprised to see that: 1.

    For the experts and as the title suggests, I strung my PT 630 at 90/40. I played once and feel I want the crosses 1-2 lbs tighter. Can I cut out the crosses and re-string them? And how? I have a gamma progression 200.

    Switching to a less HL setup.....!!

    "Accidentally" i moved from 7pts HL to 4 and fell in love.... I like to custom paint my rackets.

Rackets suddenly...

    I use an EF because feels very comfortable to me and mmuch more than other grips i have tried (SW). My problem is that many times during the lag (naturally geneated with a completely loose wrist) my arm rotates in a way that racket face is too open to properly spin the ball and it generates...
