OK, so the title of the post is a bit contradictory. I know it's kind of difficult to demo one of your own racquets. But, since I had rescued the T2000 from storage, I thought I might take it out to the courts today and hit with it for a while. It has been so many years since I actually used it that the situation was in its own way like demo'ing a new racquet. Unfortunately, no one was at the courts to hit against when I arrived (and not even backboards were available at these courts), so I was forced into hitting only serves. Serving with the T2000 after so many years was both a strange and gratifying experiment. The racquet looked like a ping-pong paddle with strings when I actually held it to hit some serves. Fortunately, it took only one or two serves to get the feel for it. No mishits and most of the serves in. Some of them I smacked pretty well. Just like old times, in a way. I only hit a couple of dozen serves with the T2000 before switching to a more modern racquet. I did find the comparison interesting, though. I'll continue to carry the racquet in my bag for a few days. Next time I'm hitting with someone, I'm going to try some groundstrokes and volleys -- maybe even a few games. While I'm at it, I might even drag out a couple of old wood racquets. Probably be fun.
