    grip advice

    Tourna overgrips are the best grips for sweaty hands. You might also want to bring a towel while you're playing to wipe off your hands. Or just wipe your hands onto your shirts/pants before gripping the racquet again.

    I need a new pair of shoes... suggestions?

    These Barricades are only $84USD. I haven't bought myself a pair of V's, but I do have II's and they're pretty good. Just without the 6 month sole warranty. You might also want to buy an ankle brace is ankle rolling occurs a lot while...

    Prostaff 6.1 for $40?

    6.1 for that much? Wow, it has to be a great deal, but I do suggest you ask the seller for pictures of possible cracks (if there is any). If there isn't, you should definitely buy it. I bought mines for $140~$150 a few months after it was released.

    My Headsize is too small!

    Like everyone is saying, 95" isn't small for a 2HBH. It's probably your technique that's making you either frame the shot or making the ball fly to another court.

    TW racquetbags as school book bags?

    Well, I wouldn't really suggest wearing a racquet bag with backpack straps to school because they're pretty big. You're better off just buying a separate racquet bag for when you're not in school. Just bring your tennis racquet with some balls in your normal backpack that you bring to school.

    Oh no, Blisters.

    Tourna grips are known to give blisters. You might want to switch to Wilson Pro Overgrip or Yonex Supergraps. Also, if the blister is occuring on your fingers, put a band-aid on and wrap the band-aid with a layer of athletic tape.

    I'm scared to volley

    I was in your shoes for a little while until I overcame my fears. What happened when I volleyed for the first time was a ball right to my... yes, that's where it went. Got scared for a little while until just about a month or 2 ago when I started running up and volleying for my point. I don't...

    De-waterlogging tennis balls

    I have never heard of a water-proof ball so I can't answer your question. Usually, when it starts to pour like crazy here, I stop playing because playing in the rain will just put more weight on your arm due to the water.

    Question for Fischer lovers

    I played with this racquet awhile back when I had the chance to. It's exactly similar to my Fischer M Speed Pro No.1 racquet but with the 'No Tolerance' thing. You might want to try it out if you get the chance to. I find it a great racquet.

    someone explain why people wear "RF" clothes?

    I was thinking that too... unless if you have a shoe fetish, I don't see why you would want to spend $600 for a pair of shoes... that you probably won't even wear. :-?

    I agree with what you're saying J011y. Not everyone can go out to the bakery everyday to get a fresh loaf of bread.

    should I loosen the string tension some more?

    In your OP, you said that you were scared that switching from full Western to 1HBH would be too slow? Hmm, I think you should try it then. Well, I don't really use a 1HBH but when I get the chance to with my friends, going from a full Western to a 1HBH took me a split second (yes I'm...

    Why Fischer? Well, there are many things you can say but Fischer was one of the best racquets I've hit with. With the setup I had, Kevlar with Synthetic Gut hybrid, my power was produced by my own self. I could have gone with a Kevlar Synthetic Gut hybrid on other racquets, but I chose the...

    Anybody else get pain in the base of their thumb? (hitting hand)

    It might be a gripping issue plus a sore. I've gotten it quite a few times before I changed my grip again recently. You might want to find a more comfortable gripping.
