    Anybody watch Mobile Suit Gundam - The Origin?

    Agreed. All Gundam series are great, but neon genesis evangelion is something else. What is THAT about??

    Modern Estusa Power Beam Braided?

    maybe i did play with the braided once years ago but can't remember anything specific about it........ i guess the head version just feels a little different, maybe the materials used, difficult to say. they are all great. and about APD / pure aeros etc, sure you can blast away but i find i then...

    Modern Estusa Power Beam Braided?

    Not the braided I haven’t got any of them. I prefer the power beam (not pro nor braided) they weigh about 340g strung which is the closest to the boris Becker champ frames at 345g. I’d say the estusa power beams play a tiny bit stiffer and for some reason they feel longer, even though they are...

    Boris Becker's Racquet Specs

    Now I have a few of the Becker frames made by head. They are 345g strung, lighter and more manoeuvrable than the pumas and more solid than the estusas. The best version in my opinion and I do not usually like head frames....string them with modern poly (currently weisscannon silverstring) and...

    Navratilova’s “RD-7”

    I used one of the blue ezone yonexes recently. It’s the same shape as the 180, just lighter. I thought it might also crack.

    Navratilova’s “RD-7”

    Rq180 was a hateful piece of junk in my opinion. The 2 I had as a yonex junior both cracked in normal play, across the throat. They wouldn’t replace them.

    Did Wilander do anything better than Borg?

    Maybe mats is a better tv presenter but will never be as cool as Bjorn Although he is still cooler than 99% of all other tennis players. Also mats in Sergio tacchini and nike trainer 1 was veeeeeery cool.

    International shipping fees ? Why so all over the place ?

    I was going to reply to this in very strong terms but thought better of it.

    International shipping fees ? Why so all over the place ?

    $95??? To send 2 rackets from Slovakia to anywhere is about $25.

    Versions of Boris Beckers Puma/estusa mold

    There’s one of his frames on £bay now. Search for Staff Boris Becker Pro Stock Puma Super Tennis Racket, Tennis Racquet 1986. In the photos you can see his specs. 345g. It’s a puma but lighter than most. Some of my supers have the extendable grip, some have the old system.

    Versions of Boris Beckers Puma/estusa mold

    i think he did use them, if you find pictures of him using the frames, red and blue, but with nothing written on them, neither puma nor estusa, that must be them.....

    Versions of Boris Beckers Puma/estusa mold

    Also a question for string experts. The strings in these are silvery white colour, possibly Wilson according to the guy I bought the frames from, but it doesn’t say anything on the strings.....I really like the strings. Anyone have an idea of silvery white Wilson strings could be? Thanks

    Why was Lendl not more popular in the U.S?

    You’d be surprised. I live in Slovakia and this happens even in “friendly” doubles matches. Seems acceptable here. The easier the put away, the more pleasure is taken in hitting you. I’ve nearly had proper fights over this. As a Brit, it’s just not cricket.

    Golfer's Elbow

    I had it last year. Started using a heavier more flexy racket strung at a lower tension and it went away by itself.

    The Max 200g "could" become my racquet of choice

    Nice poem. Usd the max 200g aged 13, still got it. It’s 380grams. Prefer the puma supers and my recently acquired Becker world champ frames which are even better. And a paltry 345g.
