    Why aren't you using Volkl?

    I used the C-9 for almost 20 years. Very useful frame, when adjusted to your specs. The C-10 is a true classic: would be nice to find the same frame in a lighter package. Or perhaps 95 sqinch headsize.

    Do you have armpit hair?

    I do have to say that when I was 19 and played without a shirt, it looked okay. Now, at my age with the hair on my belly and chest, it just looks bad on the courts.

    Do you have armpit hair?

    If I'm not mistaken, the historians of these such things have said that there are trends, fashions, styles in body hair. We're in a period in which many women shave their armpits. And there's said to be social pressure on women to shave their nether regions as well.

    Do you have armpit hair?

    would be interesting to see what happens if I let my nose hair grow out. I think it would be pretty visible. #2: I think women would comment on it much more than men.

    30+ yrs of wood or why my game is sort of lame:)

    I began tennis with a garage-sale old Victor wood racquet. Wish I had it, really do. I then had a birthday present department store aluminum, which didn't last long. Went to the Wilson T-200, and then a Bancroft Super Winner. I tried a few Jack Kramers of course, but the first few I tried were...

    Lot to be said for being in business for yourself. More than the average guy might come close to imagining.

    Blew $95 at the UPS Store

    Here's crazy for you. At about age 8 or 9 I wanted to be an aeronautical engineer: wanted to design airplanes. For some crazy reason, I thought I needed to be a pilot and that only those with 20/20 vision could become pilots. I'd been diagnosed for eyeglasses. So my career path crashed into flames.

    Blew $95 at the UPS Store

    And now, older and wiser, you realize the value of being your own boss, despite the difficulties, and know that the FBI guy likely has a crappy life situation, the hedge fund crook is never happy and the doctor might or might not be enjoying dealing with the regulation and paperwork. Of these, I...

    Blew $95 at the UPS Store

    heck yeah, UPS should get an advertising cut for this kind of thing. I'm hoping the Post Office does with all its Disney schlock gimmes.

    Blew $95 at the UPS Store

    I think what UPS needs to do is come up with some pretty, colored stamps with cool designs on them. Not just a computer printout label, but cool stamps. George Washington, famous places, battle commemoratives, old American flags, stuff like that. Would be fun to plaster boxes with stamps. Very...

    You, know, fun experience. The two women there were fun to talk to, told them about the packages, etc., told them about kayaking and one of them kayaked and we talked kayakese.

    Taking off shrink wrap grip sleeve size-upper

    Yeah, I did it with a utility knife----umm, forgot I'd posted this thread about it until now, but, umm, it's post mortem, so to speak. Came off real easy.

    Volkl C10 Pro users - talk to me!

    Both the C-9 and C-10. They didn't seem very string-sensitive, meaning by this that the feel mostly comes from the frame. I tried all kinds of strings: syngut, multi, natty gut, poly. Poly was too dead for me (I used early Luxilon); nat gut was fine, so was syngut, so was multi at a slightly...

    Taking off shrink wrap grip sleeve size-upper

    I've got a frame with one of those hot-blown shrink wrap gripsize expander. Any experience taking this off? I'm guessing an xacto knife would do it.

    Are there any rackets still made in the USA

    eh. Made in USA items I've run into are standardly (is this a word? should I say routinely?) better.

    Are there any rackets still made in the USA

    I don't have the algorithm, but it seems to me that racquets could be made with workers making $15 an hour. Perhaps the challenge that's hard to deal with is inventory for a wide range of models. I would think a small manufacturer making knock-offs of 3-4 classic frames would do well. And this...

    Apple shooter shoots to kill

    A good part of me wonders how much the "damage control" PR folks working for Apple felt when they first heard the news!
