    Trying to get a tennis job with little experience. Advice?

    I'm about to go on a job hunt in my local area for a tennis job. I'd primarily like to string and teach younger kids. I'm a college student and my only tennis experience includes stringing for the school team and a few private lessons. I was thinking about looking for a country club because I...

    I need some new tools

    Thanks everybody, I went with cheapo pliers and wire cutters. I decided on the Gamma starting clamp because I will be keeping it for years and I coudln't find one bad review. I still need a tension calibrator though!

    I need some new tools

    Thanks for the help everybody, I think this is my best option. I completely forgot to mention I wanted to buy a tension calibrator and I was looking for recommendations for one! I'm definitely looking to pay for quality here.

    I need some new tools

    Mainly wire cutters, pliars, and a good starting clamp. Do you guys have any preferences or should I just go with the cheapest I can find?

    What are some good/fun practice drills for 20 people?

    What are some fun ways that players of different skill levels can practice while having fun? I'm trying to get a few extra ideas to make practice more fun instead of players just hitting with each other. Only 1 feeder will be available to give instruction so that leaves a lot of inexperienced...

    Looking for a Poly for myself and a cheap sythetic gut for customers

    Thanks, I think I will go with a Gosen reel. The multi I have been using now has been Maxim Touch. I really like everything about this string except the durability. Should I try using it in a hybrid with Gosen before I purchase a poly?

    Looking for a Poly for myself and a cheap sythetic gut for customers

    I have a few people who would like me to string their rackets so I'd like to buy a reel of cheap synthetic gut. They are occasional tennis players and just want me to string the racket for a low price. I was looking at Prince duraflex, I've used it before and it seemed alright for the price...

    Looking for a HPS 6.1 replacement

    Unfortunately, it is. When I built up grips on rackets from my youth they felt too round. It's difficult to have a good feel for what grip I hold!

    Looking for a HPS 6.1 replacement

    I've got two 6.1 frames and I'd like to get two more 16x18 replacements. I've gone too long without getting extra rackets and I want something almost exactly the same. I've never preferred any racket over these and if I could, I would get brand new ones. To my knowledge, anything "new"...

    Looking for something like Pro Supex Maxim Touch

    I play usually around 6 hours or so on one racket before it breaks. I hit very hard so I'm not upset about the durability, but if there was a similar string for less money I would be more content.

    Looking for something like Pro Supex Maxim Touch

    I really liked the string, but it breaks a little too quickly. I used 17 gauge. Are there other strings (maybe a poly) that hits similarly? I want to keep the price below $10 a package and I don't mind if the string is a little stiffer.

    Looking for an Under Amour long sleeve shirt for cheap?

    I can't seem to find a decent price on another Under Armour long sleeve shirt. It's the kind that tightly fits around your body and arms to keep you warm. I think the material is nice and I've used it for other times I'm running in the cold besides tennis. Are there imitators who sell...

    Looking for a strining machine for myself and a tennis team

    haha yes the strings break about every week or two depending on how much I play. I only have 2 rackets and I prefer one over the other, so I usually end up using one racket at a time. Is anybody familiar about the weight difference between the alpha revo and the gamma? Also, are all the...

    Looking for a strining machine for myself and a tennis team

    So you believe that the Revo, coming without the "diamond coated" clamps and diablo whatever mounting system does make it an inferior machine?

    Looking for a strining machine for myself and a tennis team

    Yes, but isn't it difficult for those who have drop weight machines to get the right tension in the first place? The drop weight is never "perfectly" horizontal, rather, very close. I looked at the Alpha Revo 4000, but it looks like it's missing a lot of tools which would negate the price...

    Looking for a strining machine for myself and a tennis team

    I have very little experience with stringing rackets, but I'm fed up with breaking a racket a week. Also, the tennis team at my school asked for an extra person to string rackets so I could also make a small profit on the side. I live in a small apartment so that limits me to a table top...

    Need another frame. I have 2 6.1 Hyper Pro Staff rackets

    Doesn't that change the weight and balance of the racket? I can tell the difference in weight between my 16x18 and 18x20 rackets just by the extra string.

    Need another frame. I have 2 6.1 Hyper Pro Staff rackets

    I was looking for a third 16x18 6.1 hyper pro staff, but the only one I could find with a 5/8 grip is $100 bucks on ****. Is there a newer version of the same thing for cheaper? Or perhaps a place to find used rackets with the 5/8 grip? I could not find one for sale here :(

    Looking for something similar to NXT

    I forgot to mention that I wouldn't mind trying out a different kind of string other than multifilament.
