    info npro open (std or X)

    Just wanted some info on those who have hit w/ the extended version and can compare it to the std length version. when i demoed the std length version, i felt it was a little too light in the head, which gave it a small sweetspot, and made it unstable. i've thought about adding lead to the...

    Does anyone have specs on the old Prince CTS Approach OS? The racquetfinder page is down, and I can't seem to find specs anywhere else. Also, for those that have experience with this frame, could you recommend a "modern" frame to switch to? TIA

    TW: Matching racquets

    I've heard that TW is willing to match racquets when you purchase frames. Does matching mean just in static weight, or other factors such as flex, swingweight, and balance also? Also, could you tell me the difference in weight between a strung and an unstrung racquet? I'm liking my racquet...

    Impressions of the Reebok Upset DMX

    Comfort: Felt comfort right out of the box w/ almost no "break-in" time. The shoe is comfortable but is a little wide in the forefoot. If I were to buy again, I'd think about going a half size smaller. Wearing thick socks also helped the shoes feel more snug. They feel more cushioned than...

    Gosen Synthetic for Crosses in Hybrid Setup

    Since it's been said that 80-90% of the playability of the string job comes from the mains, could you just use whatever you liked for mains, and use something cheap like Gosen Synthetic for your crosses? I guess what I'm trying to say is many do it w/ Natural Gut, bring down the cost to about...
