    TW Spec and Review Issues/?'s

    Whenever I find myself in the market for a new stick, I know I must demo, but to narrow down options, I first start with specs that I'm looking for. Then I try to get some feedback from TW reviews and from customers. Lately, I have been running into several issues, or maybe inconsistencies...

    What's wrong with Yonex?

    They have been around for decades. They have had numerous top-ranked players throughout the years- M/W world #1's, Grand Slam Champions, and current highly ranked players. They make quality racquets, strings, and shoes. Yet here in SoCal, it seems they have absolutely no following. I have...

    RSI Racquet Specs

    I just came across this site: Amazing how different some of the specs are from TW's. The flex rating seems much too high (Prestige MP 67?). Both are done on a RDC. What gives?

    String Guide to the Perplexed

    In the past few years, it seems that there are more and more posters here that are very new to strings and confused about some of the basics. Plus, I have gotten many emails through the years with questions that come up often. I hope to use this thread to answer some of these issues...

    Absolute gutsy Davydenko

    After watching more footage of the Doha final, I don't think enough people realize what Davy has accomplished. The way Nadal was playing through the first set, it would have been easy to throw in the towel. When was the last time Nadal lost a close match, let alone give up match points...

    Davydenko: Pound for pound the best

    Pound for pound, Davydenko is the best baseliner today, maybe ever. Other guys his size, (height/weight), are always counterpunchers (Hewitt, Chang). He hits with and outhits top guys consistantly.

    Nationally ranked juniors clueless about strings...

    I was by the CA bowl the passed few days, chatting with some top-ranked 16's and 18's. Incredible how many of them don't know what strings they didn't even know if he used poly or natural gut...! Parents can pay $1000's on coaches, academies, and travel... and the most important...

    Customer issue ?

    As a home stringer, I strung a poly hybrid for a first-time customer who was complaining of breaking too often. He never tried polys before. A day later, he said he didn't like the tension,said it was too loose, although I strung it at the tension he wanted, and that it was giving him too much...

    CF17 mains @58/OG JC crosses @62- First few days with these were good-great control, serves, solid response, however, not much feel or pop at net. by the end of week 1, tension loss made control difficult. CP17 mains @60/OG JC crosses @60- At first, tough to find control, but after they...

    I f you could carry only 1 string for everybody?

    Federer: too damn stubborn...

    not the first time vs. Nadal he starts out attacking, coming in, and finishing points quickly...then he relaxes, stays back, and falls right into Nadal's game. Although Sampras could hang with Agassi from the baseline, he knew his chances were much better if he attacked the net and kept the...

    Nadal: the best passing shots in the game today

    and probably the best ever. Not only does he get balls that most guys wouldn't even get a racket on, he gets to and makes the pass, usually on the first swing. Even on good, deep approach shots or volleys, if he has a look, forget it, especially on the backhand side. Chang or Hewitt don't...
