    Balls from from my pocket - Rules / Courtesy

    This is pretty simple in my view. The let has to be called during the point being played, preferably as soon as someone notices the errant ball. Since no one called a let during the point, it stands as played. Do you honestly think your opponent would be asking for a let if she had won the...

    How do you Parallel Park?

    I recently taught my 16 year old daughter how to parallel park. She also had to demonstrate she could do it during her driving exam. In the exam they are totally anal about the distance to the curb the passenger side tires are, as well as how close you come to the cars on either end of the...

    Hurtin' for something different

    I use Tonic these days, 15L. I find it plays as well as VS and it's more economical ($10 less). On occasion you will get a package that has a blemish, but in my experience this happens very infrequently (1 out of 50 packages maybe). The total string cost is $22 and lasts ~20 hours of hitting...

    Hurtin' for something different

    Gut mains w/soft co-poly crosses? It seems that the OP's primary objective is to save his arm. Spin production is another objective, but secondary to comfort. Then there is the economics. The issue of cost is complicated and does not necessarily correlate well with the price of strings. So my...

    fh wrist technique "fix": popsicle stick?

    I think I understand what you mean. Drak is correct in that 'pronate' is probably not the word you wanted here, even though pronation likely happens on his follow through (but also isn't the source of his wrist pain). It sounds like the Pro has placed the popsicle stick in a position to try and...

    Your favorite natural gut hybrid?

    This will make for an interesting combo, but I bet you come back to gut mains too. When I hit with a full set of RPM I was surprised at how soft it was and it had reasonable feel for a co-poly. There is definitely some masking going on with gut mains. Still, with Lux crosses I can feel it die...

    Interesting idea for another prediction style game..

    Wow....I can't believe how quickly this thread devolved. I came back to check in hoping to see a scoring system proposal from egn and we end up here? I thought egn had a good idea. There were several other suggestions and ideas contributed as well. The thread was pregnant with promise. And now...

    'Big Butter Jesus' melts, clogging the arteries of thousands

    The really sad thing thing is this is not fraud. Not even close. These folk are as dumb as wood, possibly dumber. Faith has a way of making things easy. No need to ask questions or even think. Praise the Lord and would ya please pass the white lightning?

    Well, his humor is top notch, regardless as to whether he gets it or not. Besides, often the funniest lines are uttered without any intent to be humorous.

    'Big Butter Jesus' melts, clogging the arteries of thousands

    Your right. It is their money and they have made it quite clear what their priorities are. This is why I don't give money to any church. I'd much rather provide the kid down the street a pair of shoes or a decent meal. Speaking of faith, I wonder what Jesus would do?

    Why can’t we watch the ball like Federer?

    This subject has been studied to death by some of the best technical experts in the business. There are countless articles and technical discussions addressing the subject. It's unfortunate the OP either didn't bother to research the open literature or failed to cite any of the previous works...

    PB10mid

    Right, but I was under the impression the added DNX material at the bridge accomplished this while minimizing the added mass. I can see how adding weight in this area might help enhance the feel of the frame in terms of it's solidity without necessarily altering it's balance. However, my...

    Interesting idea for another prediction style game..

    egn - I like where you are going with this. Think about it some and see if you can come up with a point system. I can see the value of rewarding more points to those who take bigger risks and guess correctly. Conversely, one should balance this with penalizing those who take risks and fail. It...

    Anybody try Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA?

    ok, I'll confess I'm no aficionado here, but I am into good food and pairing it with the right beverage. Tonight after my match I went and bought some Mojo IPA and I have to say this stuff is exceptional with or without food. Thanks for the recommendation...this is a very informative thread...

    Interesting idea for another prediction style game..

    I can kinda see what you are are suggesting but it needs better definition though. My scheme was completely unweighted and based on minimizing cumulative error points irrespective of the seed. Simpler, but maybe not quite as compelling.

    Interesting idea for another prediction style game..

    I like the concept...I need to see a scoring system. I can think of a variation on this where you predict which round the top N seeds lose in and points are assigned based on your prediction error. The winner is the one with the least cumulative points?

    Can someone explain this point for me?

    not clear but it might be that Santoro hits the ball and it bounces on his side of the court before going over the net?

    This is what I love about people of faith. They can justify any expense without ever concerning themselves with whether or not it is the right thing to do.

    PB10mid

    I think the suggestion to add it at 12 o'clock is where I would start. You can modify your approach once you get the initial feedback. I don't see a whole lot of value adding lead to the throat in terms of achieving your objective, but maybe I'm wrong.

    PB10mid

    Yes, the PB10mid swings quite a bit easier than the DNX10, for sure. That's an attribute I really liked about it since I am able to use it for both singles and dubs. Regarding your question of adding weight, at one point way back when I starting using the frame I received two that were not...

    Obviously Jesus was losing touch with his place in the Heartland. He should have been grounded.
