    Eagnas stringing machine? (spare parts and general questions)

    So I went to take look. The crank tensioner is not just missing spring but also few other pieces. There is no cover. Is it still worth 150$ what he is asking? Rest of machine is fine clamps etc table no issue. Getting new crank is what $200 at minimum? Taking into consideration...

    Eagnas stringing machine? (spare parts and general questions)

    Its missing the cover for tension head. Owner says one of the springs is missing. I am wondering how much it would cost to replace the tension head. Contacting Eagnas over email got me no answer so far.

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    At ~9 hours of play time eruption 1.30 mm (gauge 16) broke down the middle clean. I had two yonex 98 strung yesterday at 50 pounds and 54 pounds with eruption again.. curious how much tension makes difference. Before eruption broke last night. I still felt there was not a lot of tension...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    If I go out and hit with former college players than I can break hyper g/eruption/alu rough etc in one hitting session. I can go out and swing hard like Thiem no problem. But thats not reality, unforced errors start piling up..... lets be honest if we all hit as hard as he does and it was...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    I played with eruption today again close to 3 hours and it still doing okay. Tension/play feels fine. (~5 hours in so far) To me Hyper G has edge over eruption on -softer feel -control Spin/durability don't notice any difference. Speaking of hyper g...going back and forth between hyper g 17...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    tested pro eruption full bed yonex dr 98 at 54 pounds. after 2 hour hit didn't notice any tension drop. bites pretty good on ball, even thought its hard to tell there is 6 sides to string as they claim. I guess after 6 hours it will probably have no bite.The little bends are really hard to...

    Vision issues tracking tennis ball..normal?

    Yes, for sure its impossible to track the ball at speed for anyone. I should have edited my post above. To say that, sorry. The thing is like I say above though that I am getting sensation I am about to fall down when I try and follow the ball with eyes, never hard that feeling ever before...

    Poly crosses or mains?

    I find no matter what combo mains or crosses. Poly eats away at anything not poly quickly. like buzzsaw Using alu power mains/wilson sensation crosses lasted one hit. Using sensation mains and alu power crosses felt nicer to play with as sensation is very soft but it didn't last much either...

    I Stand By Bouchard: Leader of the Genie Army, Ready to Rise and Conquer the World!

    3 wildcards for year. This is her last one. Bouchard already used two (one for Hobart and one for Taipei) I guess she is taking this wild card and will do qualies for Rogers cup. Unless she has some miracle form this spring/summer.

    Bouchard wins her lawsuit against the USTA, seeking millions in damages.

    I am not buying damages are that high. USTA would have settled that quickly outside court. Instead let this drag out for years. Low six figures would seem more reasonable. edit: Bouchard team could have asked for 10 million knowing they would never get that, USTA after court loss offers...

    Chung Racquet/String and Tension

    More like its Chung's team. He doesn't have the right people in his team yet. To make demands from Yonex, thats also Korean culture thing. They're very polite and crazy disciplined. Look how long it took for Chung to get proper coach.

    Djokovic New Reduced Service Motion

    From that video. The follow through changed? Trying to avoid extra twist/ pressure on elbow? Didn't Novak change his serve under Todd Martin and than went back to old motion.

    In/Out Device

    Even thought at moment the device is not close to true potential. I hope this device will gain just a bit of traction in market so it brings other competitors to market. Maybe separate the device in two parts one for each side of court and mount it away from net post have it at higher angle...

    Blisters any solutions?

    Anyone have any advice that helps get rid of blisters on palms? Is there overgrip that helps or cream? I have tried 5-6 various overgrips (Wilson, Yonex, Dunlop, Head, Babolat) nothing is stopping blisters on my palm which is pain in the ... to tape up. Really painful to play or hold...

    In/Out Device

    So as long you can align court lines it will make fairly accurate calls? Why not design the device to be much higher than net post to avoid low angle for camera to pick out court lines? With OpenCV tracking the ball wouldn't be issue if you used better hardware (camera).

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    Tested: hexaspin red devil black force black force felt like cyclone. price/performance ratio is fantastic, for anyone that likes to restring often. red devil initially felt really good for one/two hits and than you don't feel anything. hexaspin was garbage, cut it after one hit. is it...

    In/Out Device

    I don't find the early reviews about the device encouraging so far. Yes its beta but in place like California you couldn't find local tennis club and offer the devices for members there to test to work out kinks in the device itself and software. Heck people on this forum would test/demo for...
