    I'm currently using a newly introduced overgrip that TW should pick-up and carry...... the ADV Feltac Pro Overgrip is less rubbery than others, very absorbent with a great "tacky " feel. Right now Amazon is carrying it and I would like to see it added to the TW catalog. That's ADV !!

    Gamma T-7

    I was able to locate some new old stock of this great stick, tho grip sizes are very limited. Purchased two and can't wait to string them up and give the 7's a hit. This will be the 4th time since the T-7 was introduced that i've purchased these racquets. These are really nice racquets, tho...

    Has anyone else tried to hybrid multi's ? By that I mean different multi's in the mains and crosses. Having 1/2 sets of Prince Premier Attack and Alpha Gut 2000 on hand I rigged the following hybrid (which has become my "go-to" string set-up) : PPA Black 17 mains @ 53 Alpha Gut 2000 18...

    Coming full circle with the Organix 7 (295)

    Last March (2013) I reluctantly purchased my 1st Volkl Ox7 295 ... reluctant only because of the published stiffness rating of 74. Tho I was pleased with the way the racquet played and amazed at how much feel it had, the stiffness rating kept nagging at me. After 6 months of almost daily play...

    A question for myself ......

    This morning as I packed my bag to go to the courts, I asked myself, " Why in the world is a 77 year-old man, who hasn't broken a string in 20 years, carrying 6 rackets to the court ?

    GROMMET PROBLEM with the Qtour

    While hitting this morning I happened to feel a sharp spot on the grommet of my PK Qtour ....... closer inspection showed a split and mangled grommet at 9T. This is a new stick ordered (strung)8/26 and received last week from TW. Other grommets appear very stretched and about to split...

    The Kneissl Knockers .......

    There are so many other groups and so few Kneissl users I thought we ought to get together in one place. After a long journey I've finally found the one racquet that has halted my obsessive racquet chase. The holy grail for me has proven to be the Kneissl Black Star (the latest 2010 version)...

    Favorites .....

    Of the forty or so racquets that I have purchased over the last 30-35 years (all but 2-3 would be classified as "player's sticks) I've tried to rank order them in terms of overall playability and user satisfaction (the user being me). Of the top ten I have listed, 4 were Gammas, 3 Fischers...

    Finally found it ........

    I've been hitting with the Kneissl Tom's (green) Machine for the last month ... I play every day ... and I must say I've been impressed enough to purchase 3 of them from TW. This is proving to be one of the absolutely best sticks that I have played with in a long tennis career. Even the green...

    Ashaway Dynamite Soft

    Has anyone actually hit with this new string ? Either the Soft 17 or the Soft 18. I saw the other thread but got lost in the invective and noone there seemed to have hit with the string. If you can believe the hyperbole Dynamite Soft would seem to be tailor -made for the senior player...
