    Staple removal ... help!

    Trying to change butt cap on a Prince Phantom and Prince has five (!) staples on it, four of which won’t budge. One, isn’t that a little excessive? Two, how the hell do I get them out? Tried everything.

    off center vibration dampener placement?

    I know this sounds crazy. Probably is. But last night I was playing a match and noticing the stringbed on my Head Graphene EX Extreme Pro was feeling great, that perfect blend of comfort and response, and I was playing well. Won the first set 6-2. At some point, I realize the dampener is not in...

    Need something like Asics Gel but with more ankle support?

    I've been wearing Asics for years and love them, but I've been having some ankle problems and looking for a shoe that's not quite as low cut. Help me out TT, I've almost burned a whole in these things! ... Thanks

    Best leather grip for maintaining grip size

    I’m looking to add leather grip to Prince Phantom 100 without making the grip any larger (or smaller). Suggestions? I know there are charts with the thickness of different leather grips, but I’m still not sure which to use.

    Best poly for light racquet, e.g. 2018 Pure Drive Lite?

    I got a great deal on the Pure Drive Lite, so I bought it. Doesn't look like it's widely used here, but I wanted to take a shot at a lighter racquet after struggling recently with my Head Graphene XT Extreme Pro. Anyone playing with the new or old PD Lite and have any tips on strings and...

    Grip size conundrum

    I have medium sized hands and switched awhile back from 3/8 to 1/4 grip. Seems like I could really whip the racquet better. But lately I feel like I’m struggling to find the right size. Been messing with ultrathin grips, single or double overgrip, wrapping them tight vs loose etc. This weekend...

    One or two ankle braces?

    Rolled my right ankle badly on Monday (heard a crack but X-ray shows no fracture ) and bought two ASO ankle braces. Wondering if I should wear it just on the injured ankle, which I rolled several years ago also, or both ankles? The other one I’ve never had a problem with. I’ve seen players...

    Trying to save money by stringing

    I apologize if this is addressed elsewhere, haven't found a clear answer: I'm trying to save money in the long run by doing my own stringing. But it would be *very* long run if I forked out a ton of cash for an expensive machine. Anyone have experience with the cheap machines around $300? Do...

    Best Wilson Burn?

    Picked up my old (original version) Wilson Burn 100 today and played well. Kinda remembered why I used to love it. It hits such a heavy ball, but just had a few too many balls flying on me. It's so overpowered. I'm thinking of getting the old 95 (on sale!) or the new 100 or 95 CV. Trying to get...

    Graphene XT Prestige Midplus strung HIGH?

    Lost an infuriating match to a pusher in 85+ temps when all my balls seemed to be flying long in three sticks strung with fresh poly 52-55 pounds. When I got home I started looking for a very low-powered 18x20 control racquet for these types of situations. Likely up around 95 degrees. I ended...
