    Compare? Advice?

    I currently use an RDX500, and I love it. But I'm the market for a new racquet, and I put together this list to demo. If I don't like any of these more than my RDX500, then I won't get one. Unfortunately I can only find used RDX's now. But here's the list: -Yonex RQis 1 Tour -Babolat...

    Which Hat should I Get?

    Quck!, Which Lacoste Hat? I like all of them, can't decide. Yes, I am a fan of Andy Roddick. But it was just easier to find pictures with him and the hat, than just the hat alone. #1 #2 #3 #4 Same as hat #2, except with a mesh back, i.e. trucker hat. Thanks!

    To AeroPro Drive Cortex, or not?

    I've recently been demoing a few racquets, and I've found my favorite is the Wilson (K)Factor Six-One 95 16x18. I was planning on buying it, but I didn't get a chance to demo the AeroPro Drive w/ Cortex- it isn't available. I play with a good deal of spin- more than most kids I know, but a...

    How To Get Super Pro-Like Groundstrokes?

    How to the pro's get so much spin on their groundstrokes? I mean the kind of spin that just pulls the ball down into the court like a magnet- and then spits it out with amazing kick. All the pro's seem to get this on their groundstrokes, flat hitters and the spin-oriented. I'm talking about...

    Woofer vs Roller Grommets

    Doesn't Babolat's "Woofer" technology seem very similar to Wilson's "Roller" system? I don't think that the "Rollers" were ever put on any advanced player frames, but the concept seems exactly like the "Woofer" tech...

    Pacific Leather Grips

    What's the deal with these? I've heard that they come with double-sided tape instead of a tacky backside is this correct? I've also heard people say that they are the worst leather grips on the market, and extremely short so they won't fit on all racquets. Then today, someone told me that...

    Just checkin' but... The Wilson nSix-One Tour 90 is listed below the Vlog, was it supposed to be the (K)Factor Six-One Tour 90? The VLog mentioned the (K)Factor, so I assumed that was meant to be below.

If Federer is playing at least up to the London Olympics of 2012, like he says, I would be surprised if he didn't. And at those Olympics he will only be 31 years old. Unless there...

    Replacing Flying Clamps

    I was looking to buy just a cheap drop-weight for now. Probably the Gamma X-2. Maybe a Silent Partner Swing or something. And then upgrade when I'm older and a more experienced stringer. The flying clamps on the X-2 look pretty cheap. Are they good? Can I replace them with better ones...
