    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 do wear ASO brace on one ankle I rolled. But it’s kind of a pain to take on and off every time I go on the court. Works great though.

    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?

    Thanks that's also good to know re: thick poly. Hadn't really thought of that.

    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

    Well I won the next set after losing 6 games in a row. don’t I get mental strength credit for that? :sneaky: I actually don’t think it’s mental, it’s that if the grip is too thick it affects my whole game. But yeah it’s kind of sad I agree

    Grip size conundrum

    not particularly on that one, but it is heartening to know that others are equally as finicky about the grip size!

    Grip size conundrum

    yep, I'm definitely using too much grip pressure, that's for sure. Probably the root of the problem

    Grip size conundrum

    Also, any tips for reducing the flare on Head racquets? Like the racquets, not the flare.

    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?

    Thanks guys. Yeah Andy Murray doesn’t seem to have atrophied much. I have Asics that are cut pretty low (my one complaint) so these should work good.

    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

    Yeah that’s the second reason besides saving money. Having to plan ahead and drop off racquets and pick them up. I’m still on the fence about this but I might give it a shot.

    Trying to save money by stringing

    Thanks y'all. This is helpful. I use three or four rackets and only restring every 2-3 months or so. So it doesn't sound like it would be too time consuming to go with an entry level machine. Now ... how the hell do I string a racket? :notworthy:

    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?

    used lux original at 53 lbs over the winter and loved it. switched to 4G at 55 lbs once it got hot out. Haven't tried hybrids. Seems like anything but a poly would be uncontrollable? I've used the Blade and liked it for the control, but ended up selling it because I had trouble generating...
