    Best thin polys

    Hyper G is great in 18 (1.15), more spin, more feel, similar tension loss as 17 gauge.

    New stringer struggling with maintaining tension with poly knots on tie off

    If you do a Wilson Pro Knot or Parnell and use pliers you could potentially damage part of the loop that is not cut when you're pulling the first half hitch tight.

    Hyper G Soft

    TW lab and my experience shows hyper G 18 has the more spin than 17 and about the same tension loss. I just play for the tension loss by stringing at a higher tension. It usually loses about 13% after 1-2 hours and settles in the 13-15% range for another 5-6 hours.

    Playing Angry

    I play my best after I get pissed and then calm back down. If I stay mad I tend to overhit and make dumb unforced errors but it does help me ramp up my aggression when I'm playing tentative and getting beat.

    Yonex vcore or vcore pro or ezone 100?

    If he needs control I wouldn't use any of the 100's. I'd go Vcore 95. Thin beam, 16x20 tighter pattern for more control, low flex rating to tame the extra power.

    Strings for 16x19 vs 18x20

    I use 18G for both, occasionally I'll use 16L in a 16x19 if I need to deaden the response a bit.

    New stringer struggling with maintaining tension with poly knots on tie off

    Are you pulling the knot by hand or with a starting clamp? I found using a starting clamp helps a lot and you want to rock up and down the anchor string to take the slack out.

    Can dumb people learn stringing?

    I'd say the tricky part is that you have to be a bit detail oriented, it's easy to miss one small thing like a misweave or tying off at the wrong place or skipping the wrong holes.

    "just do normally, don't enlarge my holes"

    Ah ok thanks for the explanation. I assume if it breaks no big deal she probably has 8-10 backups

    "just do normally, don't enlarge my holes"

    I don't get it, are the tie offs not the factory prescribed holes?

    Making an Ezone 98 even more arm friendly

    To me Ezone 98 just isn't that soft but that's why it's gives good pop and spin.

    Guy had a stone cold look in his eyes in the 4th and 5th set, I was 99% convinced he was going to pull it out.

    2019 US Open Men's Final :- [2] Rafael Nadal (Spain) v/s [5] Daniil Medvedev (Russia)

    He should have served it anyway and told the Ump he was playing to his normal serve speed.

    2019 US Open Men's Final :- [2] Rafael Nadal (Spain) v/s [5] Daniil Medvedev (Russia)

    Favorite part was when a D-bag Rafa fan chanted LETS GO RAFA in the middle of Medvedev's toss and Danil hit an ace anyway lol.

    How much would you pay?

    Probably a few hundred bucks for an hour just for the experience. Even watching matches live and up close at challengers it's obvious the journeymen are still excellent ball strikers.
