    Glad to see I'm not the only one not happy with Nike's bump up in prices ;) Nike Loses Its Grip By JOHN JANNARONE, Wall Street Journal Like Hollywood celebrities, superstar companies can seem invulnerable after a successful run. That makes for a hard fall when gravity reasserts itself...

    Adding mass into the handle: silicone vs foam

    I'm adding around 14g to the handle of my apd gt to bring up the static weight. I don't like the feel of the lead ON the handle so I'm investigating the pros/cons of putting it under the buttcap. I'm using fishing weights ATM and that's fine but I wouldn't mind a more permanent solution. I...

    Ballistec 2.3 upper tearing

    I've had a set of Ballistec 2.3's for about a month and the mesh like upper is starting to tear. Is there any warranty coverage on this? It's funny, I had a pair of the white/orange ones from January and had no problems with this at all.

    Mina's Head Rad?

    Anyone know (VS Babolot :) ) which Head Rad or Head pro stock Mina was using against Rafa today. I couldn't get a good look to tell if it was round enough to be a real YT Radical Pro. I guess if it was pro stock then it would likely be tgk 231 or 260?

    New Air Breathe III for 2010

    Has anyone heard of the new Nike Air breathe III for 2010? I was looking at the Nike pix for the first part of 2010 and they are not in there but the dealer said Nike told him they were coming out. I did search first but couldn't find anything concrete.

    Damaged Head Pallet

    I bought a Prestige Pro back in January. Earlier today, when swapping out the original grip for a replacement, I noticed that the "bare" pallet was actually covered with a sticky tape and at a spot right below the top of the pallet, there is a chip about the size of my pinky nail missing...

    Adidas Summer Edge Jacket

    I love this jacket but since it won't be getting cold until October around here, it makes sense to wait and buy it. Does any one know when the summer edge stuff will go on sale? Thx

    Weight of ALU Power versus PL2

    I'm noticing a difference in my racquet's strung weight of around 2 grams between a full job of Pro Line 2 versus a full job of ALU. Does that sound about right? I assumed that most polys weighed the same:confused:

    Bab Star5 stringing Tension

    I usually have my sticks strung on a Prince Neo lockout or on a newer Prince electronic constant pull machine. When strung on the CP machine, I always drop the tension by 2 pounds to compensate for the "truer" tension that CP provides. Instead of 57, I'll specifiy 55 for example. I've had...

    Big Ace/Cyber Flash Hybrid

    I've been trying CF crosses over the last few weeks on the advice of netman. I tried his setup of CP 1.25 mains crossed with CF 1.25 at 55/52 and really liked it. The overall stringbed was fairly soft but you get plenty of power and great directional control. I've got a fair bit of BA 1.17...

    Safina's Aerostorm

    I saw that Safina switched earlier this year to the aerostorm. After watching her on the practice court today I was wondering: is it the aerostorm introduced last summer that weights 12.2 oz and a SW of 340g or the new lighter 11.8 oz aerostorm? You don't see many woman on the tour swinging...
