    In praise of Kevlar/ZX hybrid!!!

    Hi, I’m interested in trying this setup. I’m currently using monogut zx full bed at 45 lbs. I like the feel but looking for a little more spin and control. Could someone recommend me suitable tensions for the mains and crosses? Thanks in advance.

    The most comfortable racket you've played with?

    Aside from woods, I’d go with Fischer Vacuum Pro 90.

    Wilson PS85 discussion thread...

    It’s not as harsh, either. I use SV’s but wouldn’t mind picking up a Chinese one to mess around with.

    Poly in a Max 200G?

    It might depend on how hard you hit the ball, but I wouldn’t put polys in my 200g’s as they are prone to spooning towards the hoop. I only string mine with soft strings (full bed gut or gut/synthetic) and never above 45 lbs.

    Bought a Rossignol F-200 Carbon today (no pics yet)

    That’s funny, the same exact thing happened with mine. Luckily, it flew right into the net and no harm was done. I brought it to shop and all they did was place double sided tape onto the pin and shove the pallet back on. The fit was really snug with the tape on the pallet, so I’m pretty...

    Klip Legend/Cream hybrid

    I hadn't used poly in a couple of years due to shoulder problems (couldn't even tolerate it in a gut hybrid) but decided to string one of my prestiges with a full bed of Cream at 35 lbs. I've played 4 sets so far and haven't felt much discomfort at all. I usually play with full bed gut, but I'm...

    Wilson custom frames!

    Which do you think would generate more sales, custom ps85's or a Fed edition?

    Love the idea. Just wish I could get a custom PS85.

    Pro Staff Classic 95 16x18 grommets

    No problem, Chet. Glad it worked for you. Sandpaper is a great idea if you don't have a set of grommet grinders.

    Pro Staff Classic 95 16x18 grommets

    I don't recall exactly, but I think it was 6-8 holes around 2, 5, 7 and 10 o'clock.

    Pro Staff Classic 95 16x18 grommets

    No secret, just use a grommet grinder to carefully enlarge the hole until you can get the grommet to fit. If you don't have access to one, I'd recommend just bringing your racquet to a shop.

    Pro Staff Classic 95 16x18 grommets

    No problem, Chet. I don't think that sanding the grommets will work; you're more likely to damage them than get them to fit. I have not tried the WRG710800 grommets.

    Pro Staff Classic 95 16x18 grommets

    I installed the WRG710500 grommets into my Pro Staff Classic. The grommet strips don't have to be modified, but you will need a grommet grinder to enlarge a few holes on the frame in order to get them in.

    macattack - great seller

    I highly recommend macattack. Easy transaction and a cool guy to deal with. Would not hesitate to buy from him again.

    PC600 2 piece stringing

    Hi, for those of you who string your PC600's 2 piece, where do you tie off the crosses? Sorry if this has already been covered elsewhere. I can only seem to find the 1 piece stringing pattern. Thanks in advance!

    Head Prestige 600 pallets

    Hi, I have a Head Prestige 600 (silver/green) and would like to change pallets. For those of you who have done so on their prestiges, I was wondering which pallets you used. I know about the **** pallets. Do the current Head pallets (TK82/TK82s) work? Are there any older (cheap) Head frames with...

    Rossignol f200 paint job and mods

    I'm with you. I had a hit with my newly acquired Volkl Organix 10 mid last weekend. After a set, I switched to my Max 200g, Becker Winner and F200. I just felt so much more connected with the old frames. I haven't really felt that any new frames that I've tried in recent years provided me with...

    Technical discussion: Sampras vs. Federer

    Are you talking about his opponents and their coaches or commentators? I don't remember anyone who actually played/coached against him stating that he had a below average backhand. I disagree that a player could hide a below average ground stroke en route to 14 slams and 6 years at #1. How...

    Technical discussion: Sampras vs. Federer

    I don't recall any of Sampras's peers or opposing coaches ever referring to his backhand as mediocre or average. I don't think a player can win 14 grand slams and hold the #1 ranking for 6 years with a weakness as glaring as one of his ground strokes- there's no way to hide it, regardless of the...
