    Looking for a more comfortable Pure Strike gen 3

    I've been playing with a strike for about a month now and I love it but my arm doesn't. I'm mostly fine when I'm hitting the sweetspot even with all poly, but when I'm tired I start shanking, probably due to the weight. Mine is actually really off spec, I had to add 11 grams of weight to the...

    Help me make a choice -- Heavy frame, or more modern mold?

    Howdy folks, thanks for taking a peep at this thread. I'm a computer rated 4.5 player. Never played college (biggest regret in life) and admit to having a racket addiction. I've gotten better over the years, but because of the amount of rackets I string & people I teach, I get discounts on stuff...

    Hi everyone! I've joined a local amateur tournament, and I find I have no main strategy, so I need some help. Here's an abstract of my technique: - Serve: It's ok. Not the most powerful serve, but not weak either. I tend not to hit a very powerful 1st serve. I can vary its placement and spin. I...

    Losing tension when stringing crosses.

    Hi guys, I’m using a gamma progression drop weight machine and every time I’ve strung a racket so far when I get to the crosses they always end up coming off in the range of 38-45lbs. I’ve used Poly, Syn Gut, Natural Gut, Multi and always the same. I’ve also changed the tension to try and...

    Cycling questions.

    I recently picked up an old, recently refurbished 18-speed mountain bike. It appeared to be a pretty high-end bicycle, quite nice for its time, as far as I can tell. Comfort-wise, though, it is absolutely KILLING me. I did a 15 mile bike ride the other day, and when I tried to get back on the...

    How do I deal with an opponents mishits, frames, and net hits?

    I have a friend on my high school tennis team, lets call him bob, bob is tall and uses the babolat pure aero and hits his forehand in a western grip because he is tall and likes to hit balls while they are high. Due to his grip and that he doesn't watch the ball as he hits it he ends up framing...

    Boss is mad at me for supposedly not doing something that I actually did. Help me out, guys.

    Okay, so here's the deal. A few weeks ago I started work in a tennis pro shop. I do court and facilities maintenance. It's at a popular yacht club in the area. Yesterday it was raining, so a good bit of the work I would have had to do wasn't doable. When I got there, the trash cans were all...

    Where to get red prostaff RF97 Autograph

    Fairly basic purpose for wanting one. Want same static weight as 90, but the plow of the RF and the sweetspot of a 97. Also don't want to drop more than $200, $250 for the black stick is way too much. Don't care if the racket is used or not, just no cracks, serious damage, etc. Also is full...

    I'm slowly discovering my tennis game is like my golf game — I got the basics down quite easily then plateaued. To progress further it's taken/ing alot of time and discipline... I think I'll be 80 and have finally figured it all out. I'll shed old habits and play very well for awhile, then...

    Strings for Wilson Pro Staff 95s {2015 - Black and Red, not the (predominantly) White edition}

    Hi! So I'm currently using a Prince Phantom 100 (with the O3 ports and all!). It's strung with Volkl Cyclone at the moment. I had the chance to use my friend's old PS95s (2015) and fell in love with it, I think it's such an easy racquet to transition to after having played with the PP100. The...

    Pure Drive Alternatives?

    Hey everybody, I've played with the Pure Drive 2015 for about 2 years now and I'm wondering if there are any similar or relatively better racquets you'd recommend?

    A year later, my serve still sucks.

    Trying to break down my serve and rebuild it this past year after 10 years of bad habits. It's proving tougher than I'd like to admit; I'm getting close but I still feel so far. I decided to get my friend to film me because in my head I feel like I'm doing things that I'm not and I'm glad that I...

    ANGELL - Which TC? What string pattern?

    Hey guys, so this is what I'm looking for in a racquet: - Plush, buttery feel - Stable (while being under 12 oz would be ideal!) - Tons of control - Free power (this is just an added bonus, and does't have as much priority as the previously mentioned - if I'm not asking for too much) Based on...

    Hi! I'm 23 years old, and I play with a semi western forehand and a single handed backhand. I play an aggressive baseline game, and love to go to the net when the opportunity presents himself.
