Sorry I don't know where to put this thread... but please move me if there is a better place for it. The last few weeks I have been a little nostalgic... I have been surfing the "BAY" and buying a few rackets... then regripping and restringing them. I have been out playing with my regular group... mostly men at between 3.5 - 4.5 level. For the most part playing doubles... and winning. Well yesterday I played a little singles... with a new T-3000 (60 sq/in?) I had just obtained... a 4-1/2 medium... (yep a medium), I put quite a bit of lead tape on my rackets but this thing weighed a ton, but still very playable. My first impression was it surprised me how flexible the racket was... it has been a long time since I could actually feel a racket flex, even with the wood frame I have been using I did not feel the flex. Any how... the reason for my post was how it affected my tennis game... there was a drastic drop off on my power and spin... my serve was affected by I could still hit an effect serve... ample power. What was interesting was how it changed how I had to play... it became much more difficult to hit a winner off the first the first strike. It reminded me of years past, where I had to set up each point... moving my opponent around until I created an opening... we could argue til the end of time... but I could not help but think this is the way tennis should be played... Any thoughts...???
