    Where Do Dampers Go, When They Fly From My Racket?

    Use yellow ones. I find them much easier to find than other colors.

    Strings for a 12 year old who just started playing school tennis

    Agreed! This is very different from the image I had at the start of this tread. I was picturing a 12 year old who just started playing in the last year or two.

    Strings for a 12 year old who just started playing school tennis

    Okay, he is far more experienced and better than I assumed from your original post. This info does change things. I can now understand and agree with getting a new racquet and experimenting with strings - which I was originally opposed to.

    Strings for a 12 year old who just started playing school tennis

    I've watched more than enough high school and junior high school tennis over the last almost ten years so I'll give my opinion...although I'm sure the "equipment experts" will disagree with me. First off don't waste your money on a new racquet at this point. Nothing wrong with a Pure Drive...

    Worst Extra duty ball on the market

    I was desperate and made this mistake...plus the were really cheap. Worst balls I've ever used

    Worst Extra duty ball on the market

    Has anyone used the Dunlop Australian Open balls? How do they compare?

    Adidas Barricade 2021

    Please tell me these are womens. I wish they would just put out a basic black.

    Ovaltime

    Why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round. The jar is round. They should call it Roundtine.

    @KANZA Great new shirts! Two questions: Who wore the Aztec93? I'm looking at pics from 1993 Grand Slams and I can't find it. Also, is there a story behind the Lt Slade Glen Plaid?

    Racquet for a wood racquet tournament

    Anyone try (or thought about) putting Triax in a wood racquet? I think it would give just the right blend of poly and multi.

    @KANZA may I suggest a black lights-out version with red/gray argyle.

    @KANZA Any chance of telling us what other colors you are doing for the argyle?
  13. Capt. Willie

    Vollaix review

    I will be ordering an argyle, I'm just not so sure about that red/green color. And the plaid does intrigue me, can't wait to see it.

    @KANZA I see you have up a Lendl argyle shirt. When can we expect the next line to come out? And can you give us a tease as to what is coming next year?

    Received the God Save The Queen on Monday and wore it yesterday (Tuesday). Had two complements , one of which was "cool jersey, what team is that?" So I had to explain it was the UK tennis shirt from the 2012 Olympics not a soccer jersey. Anyway, the detail of the graphics are incredible...

    Defunct brands?,

    What makes you say this? Did you hear or read something?

    Speaking of different colorways, I recently came across a picture of Agassi wearing the Cincinnati shirt in what appears to be chocolate copper rather than white. As far as I can tell it was worn for just one tournament the 1995 Eurocard Open. I don't know if there would be any demand for this...

    @KANZA Will this 2012 Olympics be coming out any time in the near future?

    Adidas Barricade 2021

    Is anyone else disturbed by the adidas wordmark on the medial side? I wish they left it blank or went with the three stripes on it. Anyway, thanks for the pic!

    When do you open balls?

    At the cash register to make sure they are fresh and bounce well....don't wanna pay for expired balls.

    Do you have a favourite looking classic frame?

    I ran through this tread quick so forgive me if I missed it, but I don't think anyone said Wilson Advantage...which is obviously the correct answer.

    A big THANK YOU to @KANZA for going above and beyond on my order. As has been stated here numerous times Brian provides customer service that is second to none and his clothing is on par with any of the major brands. Plus in my opinion they look WAY COOLER! I hope I don't bore anyone...

    What’s the worst racket to ever win a grand slam final?

    This should be a new thread: "the greatest metal racquet of all-time" ~or~ "the greatest metal racquet to win a grand slam". Anyway, I'm sure someone will throw the T2000 into that conversation too....which is an incorrect answer.

    What’s the worst racket to ever win a grand slam final?

    Okay, correct me if I'm wrong but the original post and question was "what's the worst racquet to win a grand slam final?" So the correct answer is in fact the Wilson T2000. Yes BJK did use it for a couple years before switching back to a wooden Wilson. I assume she won a few grand slam...

    I hope the 2021 clothes are up on February 5. I am anxiously waiting to place an order for my long sought after 1977 Jimmy Connors shirt....and I'm sure other stuff.
