hmm..ok. I will revisit this and grab a 3 pack of superG since I need to run to the shop at lunch.
One thing I've noticed that really helps now especially since I'm using a 2 handed backhand again is putting wrist bands on both arms. Bring 6 or 8 and change them out every few games and you should be OK. I also change my grip before almost every match in the summer.
yes i need to go back to double wrist bands. I need to buy more..ugh.
I went full on Mikeler and got the Yonex supergrap (anniversary edition so a 3 pack comes with 4 - scooore) and a pack of Gamma double wide wristbands. I hope these babies last a little while because the price is right.
The local store on I-drive has the best deal on those Gamma double wides. I think I have 12 wrist bands now. Did you get the white supergrap?
yes for sure..it is my favorite grip. 3 packs of white come with an extra free right now.
In the real world where I reside and Mik visits occasionally, I will sometimes regrip once during match. Mik changed his grip once during a changeover and I fell asleep. He's such an engineer he was using a ruler to make sure he had equal overlap each time he wrapped around.
Haha. Very funny. I got an idea. Have all your racquets re-gripped before the match. God knows, you are going to pop a string - and then you re-grip.
Look for email soon.
Thank you for ur small contribution to the discussion.
My favorite Wicked move is he regrips a racket and then decides 1 game later to switch rackets. The guy bounces the ball 20 times before each serve but then has the fastest service motion in the Wild West!
I was there yesterday right before the downpour. Dressed and ready to rock..oh well. We will try again today.
Hey when the tensions gone, it's gone. Federer pulled out a new racket yesterday with one game to go. I once regripped a racket during mikeler's service ball toss.
mikeler - might think about letting the new guy know the no-name posting.
beware of naive thinking posts...
bad call - I dont get it. What is so niave about that statement.
better discussed over a beer.
Probably going to take ten. Once I start, I cant stop.
BC I have been informed. Got the post edited. Not sure what ur referencing in 2 nd half of post , but my posts are not to be taken factually or seriously.
shouldn't take 10 if i bring the beer...
WFH - wasn't referencing ur post but a "captain obvious" post from another thread which mikeler visited.
But you sir are no Roger Federer! lol
That link was broken. How was the surf with the Isaac?
Genesis Thunder Blast is coming out in a new natural color. I should be getting a sample or two if anyone is interested.
Dont wory, it happened to me and I got the same nasty email. LOL.
BC..Mikeler and WF are friends and play each other constantly..just fun banter dont take it seriously or literally
Do I know you?
See - someone is not afraid to use their real name on here.
He is just trying to drum up piano gigs and racket sales!
Is that Kathy Lee Gifford jamming on the Piano in the picture with Jeff?
Yep and I heard Frank Gifford is none too pleased. :twisted:
Against my better judgment, I'm going to admit that I bought the TheraCane today. I expect a wicked response to this:
Wow - why would you admit that. I had to google to know what it was for. I though your wife was suppose to give messages. Mine does all the time - rrrright
WF? eyes playing tricks on me. read WTF...lol
Is that you in the pic? Where's ur purse? My hormonal injury theory is lpoking more and more correct. *(I tempered my language as I am unfamiliar with all if da board rules).
cool...but i kinda like laying on the gravel.
it must be Friday!!
DG made the same joke tonight. We had a glass of wine over at Vines earlier.
You are confusing the heck out of me today! How many IPAs did you suck down? You never answered my question about the surf too.
oops...was preoccupied during Isaac. however could get surf on Atlantic side this week from Leslie.
btw - good call on Isaac going up the gulf and relieving some of the drought stricken states. speaking of Isaac -another hypocritical statement coming out of LA gov.
I don't listen to anything the Los Angeles gov says.
Jeff and I had a GOATy comeback today. Came back from 5-1 down and then 2-6 down in the breaker with 6 straight points. We had no business winning that set.
ok now u trying to be funnier than me.
opponents dumbfounded or something else? oh...you doing the dubs thing these days?
I played 2 sets of singles and then a set of dubs. I'm just not ready to "retire" into dubs quite yet. :???:
3 sets of singles and 2 sets of dubs today. I think that is a post-child record for me. I won't mention the Wicked/Jeff choke job if you don't mention mine. K?
I just received 3 sets of the new Genesis Thunder Blast now in natural color. Anybody interested in playtesting it? Might be good for somebody coming back from a wrist injury...
is there a time frame for giving feedback?
No hard time frame.
Im not writing any review. Leave that for the geeks or string nerds.
I was just looking at the red clay court in Germany. What is that building in the rear? Looks like public housing I would expect to see during the cold war.
You don't have to write a review. Just let me know what you think of it.
That facility was in East Berlin. It's a pretty amazing city in that you can see the results of capitalism side by side with communism.
Uh oh - bad word
maybe loan u a dictionary...
Didn't scan the thread so I'm not sure if this is old news...Disney Wide World of Sports tennis complex is the site for a tourney hosted by USTA & FSU tennis. The tourney will be held Nov. 2-4 and will feature many NCAA players from top 1-A teams and top USTA junior players.
I'm not sure of any link to get more details...I first heard of it from the FSU athletics website.
Yes - I believe the Gators will be there. Probably a bit pricey to get in. It is Disney, afterall.
My wife has a friend who grew up in East Germany and even though nobody had money, she did feel like there was always a safety net. When the wall came down, the East Germans all felt very unsafe now having to compete for jobs. It's a really interesting story to me no matter where you sit on the political spectrum.
We are getting Disney passes as Xmas gifts this year. Now those are not cheap.
Whats up guys i've been gone for awhile but looking in getting back into tennis. I'm using the dunlop 500 bio now but looking for a set dtring been looking up an came across Golden Set and they have a combo going on for $88.12 for two reels Snake-Bite(Co-polyester mono-filament with a twisted heptagonal cross-section) + Classic Reel(Co-polymer core, multi-filament wrap (solid core, nylon based) has anyone heard about these or tried them? the price is what got me interested. Thanks for any input
