    Are Multis Worth It/Overrated?

    Dont hold tension well (most of them), break fast, play differently every time you use them, unpredictable. But are soft, play well, have good feel. Are they worth it? sory... to clarify vote - yes - if you think if they are worth it vote - no - if you think they are not worth it

    For a while I have been using heavy 12 oz player sticks. Last week when I was in an intense final match of a tourny, in the 3rd hour in the 3rd set, my racket started feeling really heavy and I could no longer use it effectively. Im a medium build 16 year old, and it had never been a problem...

    Most powerful string, WITHOUT THE MUSH!

    A lot of people claim that some mulit's like nrg2 are the most powerful strings. Yes, but next thing you know they become mushy because of tension loss (maybe that is why people think they are powerful?). So what are the most powerful strings available (including poly's and multi's but not...

    Why are some rackets only available in certain areas?

    Why do racket companies and distributors sell rackets in certain countries and not in others. Dont you think that they should sell their rackets all over the world? Wouldnt that make more sense and be better for buisness?

    Grips for String Patterns

    I am wondering what kind of grips players tend to use for certain string patters. I am under the impression that people that use open string patterns(like babolaters) tend to use sw to western and people who use closed string patterns (like prestigers) use eastern to sw. I myself use somewhere...

    can head tape have the same effects as lead tape?

    I know that head tape can higher swingweight pretty well and protect the racket) but can it also increase stability? I have put head tape from 4 oclock to 8 oclock on one of my frames, will this increase stability as much as lead would?

    Are you cheating yourself?

    For a long time, I have been using tough players frames, such as the likes of ps 6.0, ncode 6.1 tour, rdx 500. Before i had been using only mid sized <12.5 oz. frames. But just recently i had switched to a lm prestige MP and what a difference it made on my game! Although it is leaded up and...

    Open String pattern playing style to tight playing style?

    I have been playing with a spinfriendly racket (RDX 500 Mid) for quite some time now. I love the racket but I wanted to try a dense sting pattern racket and see how it plays (LM Prestige mp). I have heard that there are pros and cons for both types of patters. Could anyone break it down for...

    Favorite Racket Cosmetics?

    I for one, know that I play better with a racket that I not only like for its playability, but also how it looks. If it looks hot and expensive, it for some reason seems to me like a better racket, therefore my mindset is "this is a good racket, I might play better". Yes, yes I know this is...

    backup? 200mfil?

    I am currently using a RDX500 and love it. I was wondering what other racquet I should get besides another RDX500 as a backup. I was thinking the 200m-fil plus- its getting to be so cheap $99!!! should I decide on this as a backup (how bad can it be) or should I get something else. If what...

    Dead Strings

    This may be a noob question i will go ahead and ask it. In the several years I have been playing tennis, I still dont know why strings simply "go dead". I know why they loose tension and break and I know what happens when they go dead (loose feel,pocketing,elasticity) but I dont know why they...
