    Hi! I'm looking at moving to Florida. Are there any resources you can name that let me know where public park pick-up tennis is active. I know most of the state is a hotbed for such a thing, just looking to see if there is a website with this type of info. Thanks! Dave in CO

    Extremely YELLOW strings

    I am looking for some violently yellow (fluorescent is OK) 17g or 16L syn gut strings to hybrid with the Technifiber Black Code I use in my Yonex RDS001 90's. I have tried Gamma and Prince, they are pale yellow. I want something that approximates the color of the frame, any suggestions?

    Prince 03 Orange

    I think Prince should list all the "colors" on their website. I spent time looking for stringing instructions for the O3 Orange - no mention it even exists. If not for this thread, I would not have known it strings up the same as the Speedport Blue. It is one thing to build frames that are...

    German Hex Strings = one factory

    My guess is that there is only one factory in Germany turning out poly strings for likely dozens of brand names. They all seem to play and feel alike, MSV, Signum, Alpha, etc... Can anyone verify or discredit this idea?

    Is MSV Focus Hex a WEAK POWER string?

    The MSV goes as low as 1.10mm - (18L) gauge. At that size, yes, it is quite low power (for poly) - if you want more power from it go to a thicker gauge. I like it at about 17L or 18 in most hex strings.

    Gosen OG-Sheep Micro 17 vs Gamma Live Wire XP 17

    My opinion is the Gosen is superior. My biggest issue with the Live Wire is that it loses tension immediately. I also think it has a slippery feel when playing with it. It is in the group of my least favorite strings, while I go through reel after reel of Gosen, with never a complaint.

    The Yusuki method for starting mains

    I have had my Revo for 10 days, and the 3 tooth clamps are working fine for me. They are not painted, but I have not seen any slippage, still getting the feel for adjusting them. Does anyone with the new style clamps feel the need to sand them down?

    Eagnas Flex 940 clamp bolt it stripped.

    Reading this makes me glad that I went with an Alpha Revo - the couple of trivial issues I have had were resolved immediately with alacrity.

    2 Hour Old Revo Newbie Dumb ?

    UPS delivered my Revo today, I thought it was a refrigerator box. It is extremely well packed! Setup is reasonably straightforward, but the shaft that holds the crank handle appears to be installed backwards. There is a little spring loaded ball that would expand when the crank handle is fitted...

    Fast Shipping from Alpha

    I just thought I should mention the fast shipping on my new Alpha Revo. I ordered it Tuesday afternoon, they expected the new machines to arrive Wednesday. They shipped it Wednesday and UPS will have it here (Colorado) tomorrow (Friday). I am excited! I will update this thread after I get it...

    In your 'opinion' what is the best budget poly?

    MSV Focus Hex is a very good and inexpensive choice - I like to hybrid it with Gosen OG 17.

    Cart/Starting Clamp Suggestions for Revo 4000

    I am buying a Revo 4000 next week - I am thinking about buying a cart or something that is on wheels. I string while sitting in my recliner, so the height of the base of the stringing machine needs to be about 18 inches. I also need something attractive... Also, should I buy a starting clamp at...

    Alpha Revo Vs. Neos 1000

    The Alpha site is now updated to list the new price on the 4000. I have concluded that, to me, the Alpha will cost (net) $75 more than the Eagnes 810 - I feel I am willing to look at the extra money as well spent. A friend of mine bought an Eagnes Flex 840 within the past 2 weeks and is very...

    Alpha Revo Vs. Neos 1000

    FEI, Mark told me in no uncertain terms that the brake on even the new 4000 will NOT be sufficient for the Speed Port string jobs. This is not a deal breaker to me, as I have been able to string these to my customers satisfaction even on the Klipper I have been using for the past 10 years.

    Alpha Revo Vs. Neos 1000

    Mark said the 3 tooth clamps will be far superior to the current 5 tooth clamps. I think the springs were either crank tension or clamp springs.

    Alpha Revo Vs. Neos 1000

    Is the turntable disc brake on the Eagnes 810/910 sufficiently strong enough to allow stringing the Prince Speed Port sticks?

    Alpha Revo Vs. Neos 1000

    From my conversation with Mark, they are currently considering the extras that will be included to justify the new cost. He did mention (upgraded) 3 tooth clamps, calibration tool, extra springs, and several other items that are under consideration. Hopefully he can weigh in when the package is...

    Alpha Revo Vs. Neos 1000

    Spoke to Mark today - Revo is out of stock for 1-2 weeks. Price will be going up to $649, but there is a litany of improvements, and free shipping. I am waffling between the Revo and the Eagnes 810. I wish it were easier to decide. I know this debate has been done to death...

    Head Radical Bumper Guard

    The setup is the same. Bumper guard, 2 strips on the side, and of course the throat. The plastic seems to be slightly better quality, and a friend has been hitting with his LM Rad OS for a few months with not much wear. I guess I will just order the new grommet set and try it on a customers...

    Head Radical Bumper Guard

    The liquidmetal radical bumper guard is a big improvement over the ti or i radical guard. Has anyone tried to use the 'new' guard on an older radical? Results?

    Are there any racquets made in the US or Europe?

    Upper end Head sticks are made in Austria - most Yonex are made in Japan (quite well, I might add)... Almost all others are made in China, including all Babolats.

    Think these are worn out? *pic & poll*

    I cannot understand why anyone would have to wear the 'new' shoes that Agassi wears. What next, Roddicks' underwear, Federers pirate headband and petite ponytail?
