It seems there are varied opinions but I have not heard of this one so far. One thing that I can think of is that the lower tension on the natural...

    The J011yroger Guide to Racquet Selection.

    Thanks so much for your response, Jolly! I really appreciate it. What you said makes a lot of sense, it really does seem like a big advantage to have that extra reserve of power to tap into when the time is ripe. I feel like finding my Corvette now :D I had another interesting hit, this time...

    To Chris

    Hi Chris, you have got me interested in the Becker Pro :) coming from heavier, more flexible rackets though, this one seems really light; have you tried lead tape, or do you like it in stock form?

    Premature Breaking issue

    Hi, I have just begun stringing with a new Klippermate - following completely the Klippermate instructions. I string with poly mains and multi crosses, and I was surprised to see that I would break much too quickly - and it would be the mains that break first. Finally, the last one I strung - I...

    I've broken the crosses...

    I've recently started stringing my own racquets on my Klippermate. I was wondering, since I string poly mains and multi crosses, would you ever just cut out the broken crosses and re-string the crosses while leaving the same mains? Thanks for your suggestions :)

    Thanks for all your help! I'll have to ask if the courts have sand on them. OrangeOne, thanks for the tip - I'll definitely work on that slice. I'll try to get on those courts a few days before the start of the tournament to get the feel of them.
