    My Review of a New Cross Stringing Tool

    Picked up a HD version for 18X20 pattern. Works like a charm. Less stressful weaving/pulling/straightening the poly cross before tensioning. I don't think using the tool saved me much time, but it did make stringing poly cross more enjoyable. BTW, I don't use this tool for syn or multi cross.

    IG Prestige MP Same as Youtek Prestige MP?

    IG Prestige MP Same as Youtek Prestige MP?

    Sorry for the newbie question, but are these the same racquet ? I know the lineage of Prestige from the days of old (Classic>I>LM>FXP), but don't really know what came after that. I googled both and they both look the same to me. Any way to distinguish the two?

    Becker with Fischer Vacuum Pro 90?

    Has Boris ever played with the Vac Pro 90 in the past? Bought one recently where seller mentioned this racquet was played by BB during a tournament in Hong Kong. I highly doubt it, but thought I'd ask.

    Bad grass

    Just a crazy idea. Instead of eliminating real grass to go all artificial, why not create a hybrid surface consists of a square inch of real grass next to a square inch of artificial grass. I understand the foundation will be inconsistent, but at least you'll have best of both characteristics.

    Fed fans : Are you warming up to Nadal ?

    Never really disliked Nadal and don't mind his on-court antics. Love watching his match highlights on YT. Just that I always felt he had an unfair advantage over Federer every time they played in the past due to the tweener racquet he uses, and the extra time he takes to recuperate between...

    Nadal on fast grass

    My POV is that Nadal only has to adjust/adapt his game to survive the 1st week of WB. After the grass has been chewed up into the 2nd week, he can revert back to his clay style, hence the stronger play deep towards the end of 2nd week. It's feast or famine for Nadal on grass.

    Still the best forehand in history

    Thanks for the link to the great video. To think he was doing it with a midsize racquet vs players with midplus and above. Can't imagine what could have been if he had honed his skills from his early age with a midplus/tweener racquet.

    Thanks for all the replies and keeping the troll/flame to a minimum, it has been a fun read. So I guess I'm in the minority here. It's just hard for me to wrap my head around that most here think there is no real advantage of a 100 vs a 90 Come on now, we all here play tennis and for...

    Skewed H2H Cuased by Racket Choice???

    Forgive me for posting the name Fed/Nadal, should have known better... How about we take both names out, and inseart player A/B. If both players have similar skill set, and the one that is winning more is wielding a larger racket. How do you explain? BTW, I don't believe there can be a...

    I'm a pretty reasonable guy who can sit through and keep an open mind on rational discussions regarding goat existence, h2h, weak ear, wft/og/dc, etc. I enjoy reading both sides of the arguments. I don't get agitated when someone is voicing an opinion that I don't agree with, nor do I feel the...
