    Camcorder with LiveView on iPhone

    I did a search on the board on camcorders but didn't find any listing camcorders that have wide angle lenses AND have live view on a mobile device like an iPhone. Reason for the live view is so that I can see what is being seen by the camcorder when I have mounted on top of the tennis court...

    Do shoe stretchers work on tennis shoes?

    In reviewing user feedback on shoes, there seems to be a common complaint about shoes are becoming narrower than previous versions. I'm not sure if there is trend there or not but ... if one's favorite model shoes are updated but are now narrower than the previous version, can one use shoe...

    My wife was able to get the Singapore WTA Finals towels last year. She now would like to buy a few more tourney towels depending on how they look. We noticed though that they are not on the tourney websites. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Source for Prince Neos parts?

    I need to get a new gripper or perhaps the whole tensioner assembly. Is the only source for Prince Neos parts? I haven't been able to get a response from them via email. Would appreciate any other suggestions.

    Prince Classic Response 97 or Volkl PB10 Mid compared to Prince Tour Diablo Mid?

    I'm a devoted Prince Tour Diablo Mid user and have been using it for at least 10 years. It has been discontinued and my only option would be to buy them used. I've tried playing with newer, lighter, and even bigger head racquets (various brands) to help me transition out of my old racquets but...

    Good cover for Tennis Tutor machine

    I was looking into getting the Sports Tutor cover but it's too short for the Tower. While searching for other options I came across a fire pit cover at a local hardware store. It is made by Fire Sense. Model 60370 Great fit for the Tower. It normally sells for $25 but was on sale for only...

    Mispronunciations of Player's names

    A couple of tennis commentators are atrocious in pronouncing names. Cliff Drysdale and Chris Fowler phonetically pronounce Nadal's first name as "Raffy-el" vs. "Rafa-el". Most commentators pronounce Aggie Radswanska's last name the way it is spelled but there is a vid by the Rad sisters...

    Asian in Player's box

    Hi ya folks. Just an observation. For a long time, you'd always see a middle aged asian lady and also what appears to be a mid 20's/30's asian guy in Fed's box. Then at the Aussie Final this year, the asian guy was in Djoker's box. Are they supposed to be tourney officials of sorts...

    Distance from baseline during serve

    Was watching ATP Dubail Youzhny/Tipsarevic match online. I noticed that Youzhny positions himself about a foot away from the line, then moves forward when he extends to hit the ball. Knowing he moves forward when he serves, he gives himself space from the baseline so he doesn't foot fault...

    Grip size and its effect on racquet weight, balance, & swingweight

    I realize that there are variances on racquets which have been evidenced by a number of members here including me buying identical racquets. Just wondering though ... if the general weight spec for a racquet says 12.2 oz, would the weight spec, swingweight, and head balance change that much...

    If you were to replace your racquets, what would it be?

    I've been very very happy with my Prince Tour Diablo Mids, but if I were to replace them I'd probably go with the Volkl Power Bridge 10. It has similar specs to the Diablo Mid but flexier at 59 vs. 66. How about you guys? Thanks. r, eagle
