    Approach shots video

    Working on hitting flatter consistent approach shots. I guess because I hit up and loop the ball so much from the backcourt I have a hard time driving the ball flatter when I get a short ball. I am visualizing hitting more over the top of the ball instead of up the back of it so much.

    Prince Phantom 100X

    I’ve been demoing the Phantom 100X 305 and 290 and feel these rackets are really impressive. I like both but have been playing better with the 290. Just wondering how many others have tried these rackets? They definitely have a unique feel and are extremely comfortable. I can definitely feel...

    Video of some one handed backhands

    Not sure what camera we were using but it wasn’t very good. But it still shows my partner in the far court hitting some beautiful one handers, he has excellent timing on that shot. What do you guys think of his backhand?

    4.0 VS 4.5 video

    Here are a few points from a couple years ago. At the time I was rated 4.0 and my buddy was a 4.5 player, which it’s pretty obvious he is a much better player.

    Topspin with Side Spin

    I want to hit this type of topspin sharp angle shot with side spin more consistently. I’ve always been better at hitting the inside out forehand and my cc forehand was not that good and I couldn‘t hit much of a sharp angle like in this video. So I’ve been working on hitting the strong angle cc...

    Some Drop Feed Points

    Here are some drop points that my partner and I played at the end of our practice session. We were pretty worn out so that’s one of my excuses for playing so lazy. Lol We do start points slow so that we start even no going for the corner on the first few strokes. I know that it is good to video...

    Some Point Play Video

    I have taken some video this week and realize that I have to get moving and split stepping more, plus quit foot faulting. I am way too lazy on the court and not staying active enough. That’s the advantage of taking video once in a while, I had no idea that my movement and anticipation was that...

    I have only hit with the 95 red so far and feel it’s a great racket. I’m wondering if any of you have hit with both and what are the differences?

    ALU Power 18 gauge

    Has anyone tried the new 1.15 ALU? I’ve been experimenting with it the last couple of weeks and it seems to play very nice. Exceptional bite and spin and a very crisp feel, so far it seems better than the 16L that I usually use. I haven’t used it long enough yet to say for sure but so far it...

    18 Gauge ALU Power

    Have any of you tried the new 18 gauge ALU? I’ve been testing out a set in my Clash 100 the last few days and it plays really well. I’ve only had 3 times out with it so not sure about it’s longevity yet.

    This is a hitting session from this morning. I’m working on driving the ball more and hitting a flatter trajectory. This shows that you can hit a flat shot with a western grip.

    What Happened to Prosupex Blue Gear?

    I used this string years ago and liked it now it’s really hard to find in the States. I’ve been experimenting with different string jobs because I just changed rackets and am now using the Wilson Clash. I’ve tried a bunch of different strings and tensions trying to dial my racket in to my...

    Video of lesson today

    Here is a clip from my lesson today with a local college player. He is having me work on hitting more through the court and getting weight on my front leg instead of hitting off me rear leg. He wants me to start more closed instead of straight open stance which I usually use mostly.

    Slow Motion Video

    Here is a short clip of some ball machine hitting in slow motion. I posted some practice video a week ago and I received some good tips. Some pointed out that I am jerking my head up early to watch where the ball goes and the video clearly shows that's true. Also the lack of bending at the knees...

    Video Of Some rally Points

    Here is a clip of a game of 21 with drop feeds that I played against a very good hitting partner. You can tell that he is taking it easy and working on his back court game, plus he lets me start most of the points. This is a good practice game because you play a lot of points in a short time...

    Playing indoors vs Outdoors

    Went indoors last night for the first time since early spring. It is amazing how much easier it is indoors compared to outdoors, to me it is like night and day. So much easier to swing away aggressively and keep the ball in. Much easier serving also you can hit harder serves and hit at a...

    Forehands In Slow Motion

    Here are a few forehands I hit in Slow motion. I know I use a strange technique and there are many things I could improve. I know to that I do arm the ball to much at times but some say that I only use my arm and it is going to fall off and on and on. But to me watching in slow motion it...
