    Pro 5g alternative, more power still easy on the arm?

    hey all, i love my pro 5g's they are great, but my problem has more to do with my shoulder than my elbow (anyone suffering from TE could do well worse than playing the pro 5g) and as a result i've had to adjust my game. the 5g may be a little underpowered for me now and what i'm looking for...

    I know i'm setting myself up for a fall here...

    i know i'm asking for it, but has anyone used match.com? i'm thinking of trying out one of these services (it seems easier than the old fashioned way, or perhaps i'm just lazy)... anyway, it worked for a coworker of mine so i thought i'd put it out there for any happy ending or conversly horror...

    Are you jumping on the Baghdatis bandwagon?

    i don't think that anyone has started one of these yet (but i really didn't have time to look, so if there is already one i apologize). i for one am behind him... his play has been inspired and he obviously doesn't give up. i hope he continues to play well (i don't give him much chance...

    England getting 2nd seed for 2006 WC?!?

    hey all, just wanted to see what people thought about this. i'm ecstatic, but i'm not sure if they really deserve it. apparently they have changed the rules in point scoring so that now it only covers the last 2 world cups (japan/korea, and france) and not the 94 cup in the US (which england did...

    Grip size and TE?!?

    hey, silly question here... i've been doing a lot of research on TE (headed by all of marius's stuff), but i read something confusing somewhere else (i can't remember where right now). it said that if your grip is too large then that can lead to tennis elbow problems... then it said that if...

    Sanding leather grips...

    hey all, another addendum to my grip problems... i know that in golf some recommend using sand paper on your grips to make traction better (tiger does this in rainy conditions)... apart from the obvious concerns about tearing your hands up, has anyone ever heard of people doing this in tennis (i...

    ProKennex Ionic Ki5 vs. Kinetic Pro 5G???

    just wanted to see comparisons from those who have played with both. which one is softer on the arm??? which has more power or "pop"??? from what i've read, there really doesn't seem to be that much difference, although the specs are a little. if you have any experience it would be apprecaited.
