    Roscoe Tanner's serve

    I just recently saw a video of Tanner's serve at tennisplayer and I absolutely loved the quick motion. I knew of him before, but that was the first time I actually saw a serve of him in real time. He looked like he was already in his 40's though but would love to see his serve in his prime...

    How long does battery last in cold weather?

    For those of you with ball machines, what is the average battery life on your machine if you take it out in cold weather? I don't mind being out on the court even in temperatures in the low 40's high 30's centigrade, but I was wondering if I should buy a ball machine now or wait till spring. I...

    I thought poly would save me money

    Well, I bought some cheap poly reel because I thought its durable and last me a long time in between stringing. Played with it 2-3 times and I thought it played great. By the 4th time it started feeling horrible At this rate I'm gonna have to re string at least every week. If I went with...

    What is the purpose of poly?

    I don't get it. I see advertisements for poly and they say its made for string breakers because its durable. And then some say it goes dead very fast and pros actually cut it out after every match, if you play with it too long it will hurt your arm? Plus it loses its tension fast. why even...

    Totally confused re: tension

    OK I always believed that stringing low tensions (50's and lower) made the racquet more powerful and more forgiving for the arm, and stringing high 60's and above is good for control and spin. Now some of you are saying that stringing low doesnt really do much good for the arm and doesnt...

    Unique presureless balls suck

    I bought a 3 pack from the Sports Authority, they bounce like 3 month old dead balls. Did I buy a dud? I thought pressureless balls never go bad? Anyway, I bought the gamma pressureless balls after that (two toned color to help with seeing the ball spin) and they bounce so much better. The...

    Mouse use and arm strain

    There was a joke thread recently about mouse and keyboard ergonomics (at marius' expense unfortunately), but this brought me to think about wrist and forearm fatigue that I do experience when I'm in front of a computer for a long time. I have now switched to a mouse that has a handle with a...

    How can you tell if frame is bent?

    Hi all, I'm eyeballing this racquet that was my first stringing job (I cut out the strings coz I didnt like the way it was) But now the head seems a little off to me, like its not the same on both sides. One side seems more curved to me than the other. I tried measuring from the throat to...

    Ball machine question

    I'm looking at portable ball machines to take to the public courts, hopefully not more than 800 dollars. My main problem that I want to practice is getting up to the short ball and hitting a good approach shot, which I hit to the net or long a lot. At my level, I pretty much know that a lot of...

    String breaking in demo?

    I have received demo racquets for POG mp, prince o3 tour and ProKennex KI5. The strings on them look pretty bad, in fact the ProKennex the string is so frayed it looks like its gonna break with one hit. Anyone know what the policy is when strings break? Should I restring this? I'm afraid to take...

    Widebody : what does it do?

    I just found a couple of older racquets (pro kennex), i'm guessing late 80's to early 90's at my sisters basement. One says widebody, the other says wide contour. I've tried to search on the forums what this means but there doesnt seem to be any clear explanation. What are widebodies supposed to...
