    is it ok to string with 6 knots?

    not sure what you mean by 'pull ones.' a dropweight is considered a constant-pull machine, as well as an electric stringing machine. Get a gamma x-2 or klippermate stringing machine for less than $200 and learn how to string. that's what I did and it was one of the best decisions i ever made...

    is it ok to string with 6 knots?

    probably didn't cut enough for the mains. that's why i learned to string myself, so i don't have worry about others making mistakes, or paying so much for labor. as for damage, that grommet with two knots might crack.

    tack cloth, tacky towel, tac rag, etc.

    so using those means you never have to change the overgrip?

    tack cloth, tacky towel, tac rag, etc.

    wow, cool to have an expert on these here. I've always wanted to try them, but TW never stocks them and I hate the other tennis retailers. It seems like a really good product given how fast grips lose tackiness for me.

    Nishikori, worst #4 in the world?

    This guy hasn't won a single 1000 event or slam, and yet is #4 in the world? Sure, he made the uso final but in terms of what he's actually won, only 8 mickey mouse events. I think he's seriously overrated.

    Tourna Grip

    try to get one of those mini water spray bottles. I used to use that since my hands never sweat but damp tournagrip is the best overgrip imo. it works, but I had to do that every changeover since tourna dries so quickly so i switched to a tacky og. I envy natural hand sweaters:)

    Lock Ups Performance Socks; Simply Amazing (Video Review)

    What looks good about these are that they seem to be much less bulky than using a regular ankle brace. However, I'm not sure how these socks will hold up. If the straps are attached to the socks, I feel like the area of attachment would be very vulnerable to tearing from over tightening of the...

    Soft, Wide Overgrip

    pacific x-tack is really wide (30mm I think?), and soft imo, if you're into tacky overgrips. I'm not sure about dry overgrips though.

    The Adidas Barricade 2015

    I've been playing with the barricade 2015 for around 10 hours so far. The most important difference for me compared to the previous barricades is the upper. The upper reminds me most of the nike courtballistec 2.3's (my fav shoe of all time) which also didn't have a break-in period, so comfort...

    Why doesn't everybody use arm friendly rackets?

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned the matter of feel. I grew up using a stiff wilson hyper hammer, and I cannot get used to the feel of muted, flexy, noodle racquets. Also, those arm-friendly racquets are just so demanding and take so much more effort for me to hit forceful shots to my...
