    Wind turbine blades, tennis racquets — non-recyclable?..

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-02-05/wind-turbine-blades-can-t-be-recycled-so-they-re-piling-up-in-landfills Wonder what mass of tennis racquets are filling the garbage heaps and lasting for millennia after Djoker & company are done destroying them... [emoji13]

    PS97 vs. Blade V7 vs. ?.. for S&V classical style

    Ok, help me out here, people... 4.5, OHBH, continental/eastern, classic S&V game here. 40s. I was reasonably content, but then I went ahead and tried to be even happy, and probably screwed myself: been trying out too many player style sticks lately, but am noticing some patterns. As my gold...

    Larger than L5 grips?..

    Pro Kennex Destiny Legend KHM

    I read somewhere that this line was the progenitor of Babolat Aero Pro Drive... Of the different Legend racquets PK made, this one is quite rare, from what I can tell.

    Sawed 1 cm off the handle of Yonex Duel G 330

    Interesting construction... Hollow - would have been nice with some foam or gel. The metal shank for balance?..

    Babolat APD - pleasant surprise?..

    Long time listener, (nearly) first time caller here... Looking from some wisdom from the forum. 4.5 player with classic strokes, 1hbh, serve & volley, continental grip and mostly flat strokes. 40 years old, grew up playing in CA and liking Stefan Edberg. So, after 15 years away from tennis...
