    RF85 Specs

    Hi, Due to various confusing discussions, I would like you to please confirm if the published specs of the RF85 on TW product page come from actually measuring the currently available RF85 itself? Please confirm this, as there are sayings that the RF85 is the same as the recently 're-released'...

    PS85: Chicago or St. Vincent?

    I just wondered ... We discuss so much about the SV model. What about the Chicago ones? Are they liked as much as the SV? Any love for them? Do they play differently? In fact, the Chicago ones should even be considered the 'real original' PS85. Opinions welcome.

    << Oldest racket(s) still in production >>

    What's ('re) the oldest racket(s) still in production and readily available today? Not considering the re-issues. I should think it's the original PK 5G & 7G. What makes them so lasting in the market place in spite of technological changes?

    Re-tacky-ing leather grip ??

    Is there a way I (we?) can make the leather grip tacky again? Mine has become very slippery after re-gripping my racket a few times using the same leather, and the grip is new. I removed it to make adjustments to the over-lap twice and adjustments to the butt-end - twice, I think - and since...

    Question on a prototype I held at TW in May ...

    When I paid pilgrimage to TW HQ in May, Chris, Jason & other crews showed and let me hold a black "prototype" of a racket brand using a famous mold ... if you remember what it was. It's got a very nice balance. Feels solid in hand. Seems like a very interesting stick. I'd like to know...

    Radioactive Contamination - Please explain how it works.

    Hi all, I'd like to understand how radiation-contaminated food/clothing/stuff/etc. maintains that high dose of radiation they have gone through. For instance, let's assume canned milk that has been radiation-contaminated from a nuclear accident. How does that the canned milk...

    Big, big THANK YOU to Hall of Fame Racquets

    I really don't know how to thank our forum member enough, Hall of Fame Racquets, for inviting me, my wife and my friend (fellow board member "znoopie") to see his great racket collection at his home.

    PK Asymmetric - concept behind it?

    As suggested by SteveI, I'm posting the same question in the classic section too. So, what's the idea behind the PK Asymmtric? I haven't seen the racquet, but sort of "caught on" with the name. The reason I'm asking this asymmetric thing is because I tried placing small weights in the hoop...

    PK Asymmetric - concept?

    Can someone please explain the concept behind the PK Asymmetric? If I understand correctly, it seems weights are arranged asymmetrically in the head area, but for what reason? I tried this out on my Redondo and it seems to work wonders, but I don't understand why. I'd like to get the physics...

    I just saw the Topspin X 90 racket on a website. The specs look interesting. Anyone had a chance to play with it? How does it compare to other rackets in the same class, like the Prestige, Redondo, Black Ace, and other 18x20 mids sizes? Thanks!

    Black Ace 93 Modification - for those who asked.

    Many have asked me how I turned my Black Ace 93 into a maneuverable "cannon" ... I guess it's all about SW and weights in the right places ... I must confess that I really don't know how I did it. Things came to my head and it was all serendipity. A lot of the stuff I did were primarily to...

    How can we determine "mass" in space

    OK, if an object of unknown weight (and mass) is taken to space, in zero-gravity environment, how could it's MASS be determined? Let's see your creative answers ... all for fun. I don't think there'd any be any "correct" answer, but let's see the possibilities. Cheers!

    K90 PWS Question

    Does anyone know exactly what's the PWS of the K90 is like? Is the PWS a solid piece of "bulged" graphite material, as in #1? Or is it "hollow" to the frame shape, as in #2? See conceptual pic below. Thanks guys.

    ** Natural Gut and Care **

    Yep, I'm very new to gut. And I haven't found answers to taking care of gut. (Well, there may be, but I'm not a good searcher.) What post-playing care do I need to take to keep my gut in good playing conditions? I've heard things like cleaning the gut with dry cloth and waxing or putting...

    Different tension -- any point?

    Just wondering ... Is there any point in stringing mains and crosses of SAME string at different tensions? e.g. Stringing syn gut mains at 56 and the very syn gut crosses at 58. This, of course, is a two-piece string job. In this case, would the resultant feel be something like a...
