    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    Hey guys tuning in after a while here. I used up my whole bottle of Enduraspin and I must say it's become an integral part of my game. I use it on change overs, and before each set. Sometimes before I head out onto the courts.. also on my natural gut setups and heck I even thought about using it...

    Hah 8oz of cancer. No thanks. Dont need a GoFundMe page any time soon to pay for my medical bills. Side note. Not really a joke. Those GoFundMe Medical pages seriously give you a perspective. Scary stuff what some people have to go through.

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    For me personally it is not leaving any residue on the ball. Although I usually prefer to leave it for a few minutes before hitting.

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    What I notice is that after playing with it even for 30minutes. If I rub my hand over the strings I can ever so slightly feel the coating. It's not that it is wet. It is hard to explain. Almost like I can feel the polymers or thin coating they advertise. No doesn't muck up the balls

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    Still hitting about 60F here. Im playing mostly indoors where the facility is heated properly. The coating is wet for a little while after I apply it. The "wetness" lets call it. Usually takes about 2-3minutes to feel like it has dried. I can feel the film of polymers on the strings just a tad...

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    Working for me now Best way to apply it I found was just a few minutes before hitting so the coating could dry completely. Although it works fine applied right before I preferred doing it that way.

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    Im not getting any muck on the balls. What it does is it leaves a thin film of polymers on the string bed. I usually apply it a little while before I hit to make sure it dries. But thats just me being paranoid. I've hit with hit within seconds of spraying it and no marking of the ball. I prefer...

    Hey guys thought I might chime in after a few days. I understand some people are getting the product and will be posting more reviews about the ENDURASPIN after mine so looking forward to those! But, I might add that I have been using it for almost a month now religiously. I am noticing more...

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    I noticed the violent spin on the serves the most like I said earlier. The slice out wide becomes deadly. I feel like if professionals decided to use it. Slice serves to the body, T, and especially out-wide would be more effective. Obviously pros don't need it on the groundstrokes as much since...

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    That was extremely well put! Reading the product description on the website it's pretty much what youre advocating. The coat of polymers reduce friction not the carrier liquid. "ENDURASPIN String Coating is scientifically engineered to maximize string snapback and reduce friction between mains...

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    Haha yea what I said looks stupid. I should have elaborated (things like are alcohol are volatiles too). Oh well it is forever in the talktennis database for all to see. I've been using Enduraspin for the last week and I can say that it is a cool product in a sense that it adds a coating to the...

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    Yea thats true alcohol is a volatile too. I kinda wrote that half asleep didn't really think it through. But regardless what the ingredients used in these solutions are extremely low grade silicones that are not healthy for you so what I mean is that the volatiles they put in there allow these...

    Tennis String Lubricant (Product Playtest) SPIN SPIN SPIN

    I wouldn't play with that man. That product is flammable which means it has carcinogenic ingredients and the vapour is dangerous to inhale. When you make contact with the ball you are inhaling that stuff and you are hitting the ball over hundreds of times. Take care of yourself

    UPDATE #2 2016-10-14 Hey guys just finished a 2 hour hitting session with Enduraspin applied to fresh new string jobs. Applied on Fresh set of Luxilon 1.25 M2 Pro @ 57lbs I am thoroughly impressed. I sprayed Enduraspin 20minutes before playing and it absolutely makes me laugh how fun it is...

    Exactly the balls get dirty and heavy also. I didn't even notice the heavy part but now that I think of it thats what was happening to me also. 3M Dry Silicone does mark up the ball. It also dries. I think its bad if it dries it doesn't seem to work as well and needs to be applied frequently...

    The problem with a lot of those cheap walmart lubricants is the mess and they just dont last. This one has no mess so no one will know im using it. I prefer the anonymity. Part of the reason I stopped using lubricants in the past was because it would gunk up and mark the balls like crazy and my...

    Zverev and Kyrgios will break into top-10 in 2017

    Lol why the Kyrgios hate? He is amazing. Did you see the Monfils v Kyrgios SF in Tokyo? It's absurd the quality of this mans tennis.

    Time to retire for Rafa.

    This comment is one big win! 14GS you can do whatever you please. Especially when you have almost a decade of dominance at a grand slam tournament. Usually the most difficult to achieve at that! I do hope he gets one more at the French somewhere down the road.

    Zverev and Kyrgios will break into top-10 in 2017

    I think its completely do-able. But considering the number of players capable of being top-10 right now I think it seems a lot more justifiable that only one of them will finish in the top 10.

    Hey everyone, I received a sample today at my club from one of the coaches. I wasn't sure if this product was being sold or not but its worth a mention. I did playtest lubricant on my strings in the past but never considered that it could be a tennis product. I gave it a little try. I had to...

    Golfers/Tennis elbow survivors

    You are definitely on the right track. This might sound funny. But cut out meat if you can for several weeks and go plant-based, vegan, what ever you want to call it. This will help reduce overall inflammation in your body and allow your body to heal you more effectively. This is proven. Just...
