    I have been using an Egnas Flex 940 for 2 years and never had any problems with the machine. So far I used it about 20 times because I only string for myself and my wife. We rarely break the strings so we change them only because of tension loss. The 940 takes more room than I would like so I...

    Luxilon why?

    Every time I see Couurier on TV he is pushing this string. First what string exactly he is touting and second is he being sincere? Thanks

    Hand gets tired

    What is is the most likely cause for the hand to get tired while hitting tennis balls? Is it swing weight, racquet weight, grip type, balance, manufacturer etc.....? Let's assume the swing is correct and the person is strong enough for the sake of discussion. Thanks.

    Proud pusher

    Proud pusher. I get a chuckle out of people calling me pusher. That’s their excuse for losing because their game lacks consistency. Poor losers always blame everything and everybody else when they loose, wind, lines, sun, racquet, noise, you name it. No one in their right mind could expect to...

    Racquet prices

    It doesn't seem right that racquet manufacturers require dealers to post a minimum advertised price on racquets. The only looser in this process is the consumer.

    The serve again

    Is there a movie or even pictures showing just the racquet action step by step during the serve. Forget the toss and body motion, the best way IMO to understand the mechanics of the serve is to see the racquet action from start to finish. For instance, when we say brush the ball for top spin...

    Fisher M PRO-N0 1 105

    I demoed this racquet today for one hour. I found it to be very flexible with plenty of power on ground strokes, very maneuvrable at the net and descent speed on the serve. The catch? Well it hurt my arm and if I continue hitting with it I might develop a tennis elbow. Is there any possible...

    I played with VOLKL V1 Hotspot for a long time and my racquets look and feel old like me. I need to switch to a similar racquet preferably a VOLKL. Did any one use this racquet in the past and what racquet did they switch to. It would help if the manufacturers publish a guideline explaining...
