    Custom Paintjob Question

    I went to an auto parts store and picked up a duplicolor 2in1 scratch fix. I got a 2013 blade thru a trade that looked like it was just strung and then dropped and there were a few chips and a couple scratches. The 2in1 has a brush but also has a rollerball option. It worked great to hide the...

    Bonjour from Babolat

    I've used every version of the APD and have had varying elbow pain. Every iriteration I think..this will be it..this version will let me use this racquet without pain..but every time I was wrong..until the 2013 ver.

    Thanks I will try having her hit with an eastern grip. Told her to hold lower but bad habits arise when she doesn't have time to think and she reverts back to the open grip.

    Help my cousin's 2hbh grip

    My female cousin..she's about 12 or 13 now I think. I hit around with her the other day and noticed every time she hit her 2hbh it tended to go into the net and she had this weird twisting motion. I asked her about it and saw how she gripped the racquet. She holds her right hand continental but...

    My BLX2 Blade experiment

    I didn't add any lead just a TW leather grip I bought a few years ago and an overgrip. I could kinda tell the difference in how I was hitting. My opponent told me the ball felt heavier today than last week when I played him. Ball was coming faster with more spin.

    My BLX2 Blade experiment

    I didn't think much of modding the 18x20 until I saw this thread. I've only played with it on 2 occasions for 2hrs each. At stock it feels light as I was coming from a Organix 10 325. I was just thinking of adding some lead and putting a leather grip over it. Is that ok or better to stick them...

    Help with selecting a new shoe

    I think I have a flatter arch but not really sure. I've worn barricade 5 with no problems but the 6 hurt my arch. I've worn ballistecs 1.3 and 2.3 with no problems but the 3.3s have hurt my feet. I'm using feather 1s but those are wearing down. My feet aren't too wide..average I guess.

    stupid for not demoing (long sorta)
