    New Lunar B 1.0 vs. 1.5 including pics

    Wanted to add a minor footnote to Aussta54 great post. Yes, the tongue has a different mesh, but it's only on the front side. The back side of the tongue still has the original fabric mesh of the lunar ballistec (not 1.5). P.S. I wanted to see what white laces would look like. Personally...

    Nadal PE Outfit vs Retail Outfit

    Will it ever make sense why Nadal never wears what they sell to the public? The black swoosh on the top that he's wearing now is like an homage to his 2008 outfit.

    Nike 6 month warranty question

    I just bought a pair of courtballistecs from the last remaining few from a local shop and do intend to wear the outsoles down within 6 months. Is the warranty still valid even though the courtballistecs are discontinued now?

    Official Nike Lunar Ballistec Thread

    Rafa's already trying on his colorway for Roland Garros during a practice session. It still looks like his same custom red Lunar Ballistecs.

    RAFA Upcoming Apparel and Gear

    Rafa was wearing this shirt at practice earlier today in preparation for the second round of the Aussie Open. Any ideas on what tournament Rafa might be wearing this shirt in? I thought Roland Garros but it doesn't look like it in the spring/summer 2014 catalog. It does have his bull logo on the...

    New Nike Aust Open gear

    Would actually CONSIDER buying lunarballistecs if the midsoles were white. Aesthetically, it would balance the colors out. It's too red and grey/black IMO. Give customers what they want! http://tenniscuriosity.blogspot.com/

    New Nike Aust Open gear

    Stopped by my local tennis shop (ssinet evres ruoy in the ATL) and asked when the new Nike gear will come in. The store said in a couple of weeks from today (12/22/13) and also mentioned that the new Lunarballistecs will indeed have a 6-month durability guarantee.

    Home made Racquet holder

    I took a keyboard stand that wasn't being used and converted it as a racket holder. The only problem is that the bars are kind of short. And yes, pipe insulation will go on it; realized it after I took the picture. Without the pipe insulation, the rackets do slight around with the slightest bump...

    Name of Nike Shirt?

    I found the shirt by accident while shopping at a Nike Outlet. It's not a tennis shirt but rather a Training shirt. They had a black color of the shirt as well. Here are the specs: TRAINING Style: 545534 Color: 100 Suggested Price: $40.00

    Wristbands?

    I tape my wrists and wear wristbands over the tape for support. My wrists are prone to a lot of sprains/injuries from playing drums; lots of whipping action going on with drums and tennis.

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    Whether you choose to alter the shoes or not is entirely up to you. This is a very subjective matter and there isn't a right or wrong answer. Every person's foot is different and I thought I would share what would make these shoes more comfortable for feet.

    Not to bad of Modin the 3.3's

    Yeah, the hole you cut is a little too big and it needs to be along with edge of the tongue. But hey, it's only a shoe! It's the guy wearing the shoes what counts.

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    My uncle makes signs for a living and he printed me some custom vinyl stickers that I just used to put on my shoe. Very adhesive stickers he has I must say.

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    I tried the shoe on with just the cut strap and it's a little loose for me. The filled in single tongue keeps my foot loose and snugged in but not as tight as with the strap on. Everyone's foot is different.

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    Alright kids, I uploaded both courtballitec 2.3 and 3.3 posts and resized the images. Tenniskid1: I used pillow fillings. You can find it at any arts and craft store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. http://johnstennigear.blogspot.com/

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    I tried cutting the Courtballistec 2.3s uni-tongue into a single tongue and I have to say it requires a lot more finesse and skill to sew the cuts neatly and uniformly. I'll post pictures soon.

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    As long as your insoles are completely worn out, I would say it's possible for you to get a voucher even with an altered tongue. If it's just an altered tongue, however, I don't think you could get a voucher but hey, you could try. :)

    The left shoe is before and the right shoe is after. I'll take some more pics to really show the difference.

    Cut the Uni-Tongue of Nike Courtballistec 3.3

    I have always had a hard time breaking in the Nike Courtballistec 3.3s so I decided to buy another new pair of them and test this theory all Nadal fans have, that his single tongue shoe is more comfortable as opposed to the retail uni-tongue version. I must note that this alteration does...

    Shoe Size Trading

    I have a new pair of Nike Courtballistec 2.3 Nano Grey/Del Sol SIZE 9.5 that are a little too big for me. Does anybody have the same pair but in a SIZE 9 that wants to trade with me?

    Saigon (Vietnam) is tennis clothing MECCA!

    It's interesting how the majority of Nike tennis apparel is "Made in Vietnam" yet there are also fake, knock-offs of Nike tennis apparel as well. Conundrum? I think so. I'm also Vietnamese myself. A year ago, my parents went over there for a month vacation and they brought back some Nike tennis...
