    Superb deal with Rui Manito!

    As said this guy was great. Bought 2 Price Textremes 100p from him for super cheap price. Racquets are as new. Communication was great, seller also made a vid of the racquets and provided a tracking number for the package. Shipping was super fast. Recommend dealing with this gentlemen very much.

    Welcome back Juan Martin!

    This man deserves a thread of his own. Saw the match yesterday where he demolished Grigor and I have to say we saw some superb hitting from Juan. Lets hope he can keep it at this level and stays healthy enough to be able to compete. Such a great player to watch.

    Something similar to PSC 6.1 lighter!

    Hi I have been playing with Pro Staff Classic 18x20 strung with BB Alu Power. We all know this stick is legendary and it's one of the greatest all court sticks that just begs for chip and charge and volleying. I also tried other 100 inch Prince sticks and they all lacked that feel on the net...

    Deciding between 2 sticks?

    Hi Just want some opinions or experiences so I can easily decide. I am deciding between Wilson BLX Blase 98.

    Transitioning to semi-western forehand!

    Hi Is there anyone else still here from the old school that still plays with eastern forehand as myself? I want to know if it's worth it to transition to semi-western. As I am aware 99% of modern players play with semi-western. I need more spin on my stroke and consistency so I think...

    Deciding between the Babolat PD or Pure Storm Tour!

    Hi It came down to the final showdown between those 2 racquets for me. I heard a lot of good things about the Pure Drive and also Pure Storm Tour also sounds like a great all-court stick. PS 6.1 just became too demanding and I need a great stick that is lighter and more forgiving. I am an all...

    What to buy?

    Hi I am in a process of buying a new stick. My last racquet was Prince O3 Tour but didn't suit me well. It was not so agressive, volleys were not ok and slice was not biting. I always loved PS 6.1 line. It is so solid allcourt stick and I always enjoyed putting away those short balls with a...

    Your Signum Pro Poly Plasma setup!

    Hi I strung my Nblade with SPPP and set the tension to 24kg. But I still feel it's too stiff and board like feeling. How do you string your SPPP (in kg's)? How low can I go? I need a soft feeling stringbed and I don't like stiff setups. Thanks.

    Speed drills!

    Hi I am a 32 year old recreational player and love the game. But as we all know that after the 30-ties the speed of the legs goes down and I can notice that my movement is becoming too static which causes the strokes to suffer. I am doing some body weight strength training (abs, push ups and...
