    I've decided I'll never watch another ATP match.

    I try to find official replay of the 2018 Stuttgart tournament and what do I get? Sign up for $14. Nope, that's not going to happen. I don't even know if that is real or not, atp doesn't say who their official replay provider is, and if they do, they aren't very clear about it. I didn't even...

The all silver labels say 309g (10.9 oz). All those I find online are the red and silver labels the others I bought...

    Is there a video of stringing?

    I remember a few months ago, talk was around of someone posting video of stringing. I was just wondering if someone has done that yet. I have already watched the stuff from sptennis. Their video quality isn't good enough for me to get a clear idea. I can't actually make out the string...

    WANTED: string instructions and/or video sites

    I know this has been done before, but, I am asking again. Where are the best manuals and best videos to learn stringing? I am at Grand Stand right now and all videos start with rackets already strung. I am really hoping to come up with something new. What have you stringers found...

    redundo vs prestige.

    Title says it all. I am considering getting a new prestige 600 but could go with something cheaper. The rudundo looks like a prestige I would like to know how closely they feel and play. I am refering, of course, to the current prestiges available at tw. I know I could look it up but I'd...

    A, who's used this racket? thread.

    I was just thinking, it would be interesting to trace the ownership of a racket that has been traded or sold in the classified section. I have close to 20 or 30 rackets and many have been bought or traded for on these boards. Wouldn't it be interesting to take a racket that you bought...

    Maxi Edge? Anyone ever use it?

    LOL. Just kidding. I came in tonight and the weed eater string was on my table and I thought hmmm. Question: What is the wackiest thing you have strung a racket with and how did it play? Weed eater. Fishing line. kite string. Yarn. Piano wire. Guitar strings. Etc..

    Can frame fatigue be good for a stiff racket?

    I have an old Wilson 6.1 classic that was used extensively before I got it. I don't like stiff frames and was wondering if age or frame fatigue could make a frame more flexible. Is the fatiguing of a stiff frame a good thing for people who like flexible frames or does the fatigue just make it...

    What does the number on my balls represent?

    Does the number on my balls represent anything? I a penn 3 softer than a penn 2 or does the number on my balls represent fuzz density.

    New w3 Sarina racket with 47 flex

    Did anybody notice the stiffness on that racket? That sounds like it could be a nice racket with lots of lead tape on it. You could put almost all the lead under the handle.

    The scenario. I'm watching the match today between Clijsters and Hardenne and Kim is set up to return serve and the camera is the ground level cam right behind Clijsters and then I realize, wow this chick is pretty hot. I continued to watch and I realize that suddenly Clijsters is hot. I'd...

    When will somebody review the three Avery frames. I think they all have excellent stats and would love to hear some reviews. If they didn't cost so much I'd review them myself. I would especially like to hear reviews of the two 95' models. Does anybody atleast plan to try them out?

    Can Blake be #1 by the end of the year?

    He played so good tonight that I was wondering, who else would like to see him at number 1. I'd love to hear Blake say, "Dude I rule," in that surfer accent he has.

    Who does Safina remind you of?

    If anyone here is a fan of the Beverly Hillbillies, I'm sure the name of Jethro's cousin Jethrina rings a bell? Could it be? Kinda funny how the russian names work. Oh well, they work perfect for this anyway

    Why are lighter rackets more expensive?

    I know the answer so play along anyway. I am going through racket stats at tw and notice over and over that the light stiff rackets are almost 2 times the price of good rackets. I was in the local SA today and all they have is light stiff. Since they are lighter, isn't there actually less...

    What properties make a racket good for slice?

    I have been using the wilson tour95 weighted up. I hit pretty good with it and can do everything but slice. Slice is probably my favorite shot but this racket seems to pop the ball up everytime i try no matter the angle, unless I really smash it, the ball floats. For instance, drop shots...

    head tx professional?

    Does anybody know anything about Head tx professional? Is it the same as prestige? Also, how do you make the Volkl tour9ve more arm friendly? It kills the arm. It is blue. On the TW website the Volkl looks black with highlights, but the two I have are blue. I will put more weight on it...

    I have an extra t.v. that is always on Univision. Does anybody else watch this chanel with the sound muted while you are working or listening to music. The 10's abound. If you want something to look at that doesn't involve alota thinkin, this is it. Did you see Caliente today(saturdays)?

    Is Arafat dead?

    It is 11:30p.m. eastern and the news out of Palestine sounds just like the news when Stalin and Mao died. These type of regimes always claim, "he is just ailing." I say that puts him at either comatose and not coming out of it, or just outright dead.
