everyone should switch to donnay! tell them monkey
everyone should switch to donnay.
Why would anyone want to switch to Donnay?
dats =when we hitting man?
so tennismonkey inspired me to dig up my old donnays....which led me to organizing my old frames....tada:
the pile was too high:
oh yea if anyone can name all those frames correctly, free string job from me!
actually you can read all of them nevermind too easy!
Monkey, only thing was there were some really dead spots on the upper hoop with the Gold. Just every now & then while having quick exchanges in dubs, you think you'd stuck a volley but instead it was just off the sweet spot & instead of a lil less pace, it was like no pace - dead. Really odd & frustrating.
Monkey!!! I had fun last night...let's do it again sometime, yes?
You owe me a drink!
Wait. Does Mrs. Monkey approve of this "do it again sometime" activity you speak of? :twisted:
zap: Can you bring the Becker Pro the next time we hit? i've been dying to hit with that frame.
i was thinking auzzie would make a comment first. but yea. demos are $5 per racket per day. if you buy from us fee applies back to purchase
oh the becker pros are sweet! that was going to be my final be all end all. until the yonex came along. then the donnay. then the......yea
zap, can I use a twmac coupon for this?
trying to hybrid hexy fiber/ rip control. trying to lower the power of hexy.
should I do rip/hexy or hexy/rip?
and what's the deal with folks having tension more on the cross than the mains?
disappointed in TWMAC. u tellin me nobody wants to buy my BLXPROs or RDIS200s for cheeeeeeep? geez.
i should have just tried restringing the BLXPROs with a hybrid cuz i like them it is just that its been crushin my wrist. i shouldve brought them out to try one last time against sappy. i just brought the rdis200s and man he was blowin me off the court when we were just rallying. but somehow we play a set and i think i might have bageled him. but the rdis200s had no power (except for one accidental 2nd serve i blasted @120mph down the t..oooops) and the strings sorta felt like p000p. dunno.
hey sap, u shoulda seen the dog after u left. he found a 60lb male chocolate lab and humped the bejeeezuz out of it. meanwhile a 130lb great dane was there.. beautiful dog... and it tried to tell my dog to cut it out and my dog, probably in fear for his life, goes totally CUJO on it and causes a big scene in the dogpark. it was so embarrassing and i had to take him outta there. he had this big grin on his face on the way home there. he is like a honeybadger. he just dont effin care!
I would have, but I am now a one racquet guy!
You should go with multi mains and poly crosses in the BLXs
auz i think ill try multi mains in it before i give them up.
anybody want to hit @ taliban tomorrow?
have to go
its getting colder. we gotta hit soon.
What's for lunch today?
lol you mean breakfast?
I'm not much of a businessman, but seems to me if you want to sell something, you shouldn't go around telling everyone what's wrong with your product. Just sayin'. 8)
Hopefully, some Gints?
did the army 10 miler today as some lady's replcament. looking at her stats from the last 4 years, i'm sure i've done her justice by adding an additional 3-4 min/mile to her normal pace. gotz lots of looks with such a low number at the line. sure ppl were like what is this fattie doing in this wave. however did reward myself with a farmer's daughter from h and pizza promptly after.
That looks tasty! Saw that pizza on the Wash Post Express or something. Was it worth it.
Well, did day 1 of the Mclean Racket and Health Club Member/Guest tourney.
Don't think I embarrassed myself, but me and my partner didn't win any matches either. We played 2 1/2 matches (pro-set 10) and it seems like we would just lose momentum at 5 or 6 all. My partner was a really nice guy. It was fun, but I'm still not close to Shiloh champion form.
Also need a new string job - Lux M2 picked the perfect time to go super-dead. Might need to drop the poly for the time being. Might need to look at Rip Control.
pretty good and freash. they make it per order so for about 8 bucks you get your own personal pie with eveything thrown on it. just may become my regular go to .
is that a fried egg? i believe egg just makes everything better.
how did i do in the army 10 miler btw? did i embarass myself?
did you run that race TM?
by proxy. yes. some poor fool paid me for my number and the privilege of running as the great tennismonkey - TM (patent pending).
i think i want somebody to run a marathon now as me. all the glory. none of the annoying sweating and training.
it was good fun. lots of ppl on a beautiful day. i did not run for team TM but the results are below:
congrads sap and tm for finishing. Those are the times from start to end, right?
My right arm has officially fell off after my first full time hit with my near 13 oz sticks. After 2 hours of hitting, I think my shoulders has separated from the rest of my body. I went home and shed 1.5 oz of lead. Now down to 11.5 only.
Ouch! The dangers of lead addiction.
Well I finally switched up my tennis clinic from the 3.0-3.5 group to the 4.0-4.5 group. Our instructors ran some conditioning drills that would have made Sup proud. Swear I nearly passed out following a 10 ball drill that ended each round with plyometric pushups.
Highlight of the night- Hitting on ace on the instructor during a drill. First serve of the night, boom, down the "T". Sort of made up for all that torture.
JR, good to see that you're getting back on the court...are you getting back into any league tennis in 2013? if not, i'm playing enough for the both of us...
Sorry Downs, but you''re going to have to play my share of league tennis for a while.
Hoping to get back into league next spring, but we'll see.
Sup car update. New car smell, cop attracting color, 400+ horsepower, manual transmission, and 2 doors. The complete opposite of my intended jeep selection.
Trying to post a pic.
Sap, those pizzas look so good & only a stones throw away! Gonna have to check it out! Thanks for the tip!
congrads sup! can't wait to see it.
i say sappy beats monkey in any marathon race easy............
as long as buffet line is at finish
sounds like that might be the next meeting spot.
Can we sit there? Looks like it's around Metro Center.
My legs are killing me too now. That's what I get for not being on the tennis court in over 6 months. I am really getting old.
No you're not too old at all cb!
But yeah I'm game for that pizza place. Betcha it'll be packed crazy during normal lunch hrs, so more time will have to be planned for lunch meet...
You wanna see old? Come back here after I have to try to "slug it out" with Downs today! It won't be a pretty picture! Haha
it's on H street. there is NO easy metro access near by. it won't be packed during lunch time. there are benches for seating. i suggest driving as parking will be E to the A to the ese...
haha...nah, you can hang! i'll hit some with you...then i'll have to grab a snack for my 10pm hit...haha...ugh!
Oh crap! It's that end of H! Haha
Yeah, I give myself 20 mins max b4 I'm gassed! Lol
I am going here this week:
i wouldn't rec it as an ex resident of adams morgan. like my parting words to our fiend tfm to prison. larger is not always better. in fact sometimes it's worse.. and even times much much worse.
This, plus some new K-Swiss Tubes Monfils Mids, got my sorry azz ankle back on the court yesterday after 3 months on the sidelines - and it didn't explode. Sad to give up my beloved ASICS, especially the colors, but any sacrifice to get back on the court. Hope this is a long-term solution. *crossing fingers*
Hey, Sup, when you gonna drive up in those new wheels and have some real BBQ?
road trip!!!! You may dig the color of my car.
Ah, I'm thinking yellow. Close?
