I apologize to all (especially @J011yroger) for the delay in getting the video up. In addition to Premier crashing on me, I've become obsessed with my hardwood flooring project and have moved on to my daughter's bedroom. My wife is concerned that I've become addicted, and I think she may be on to something. So, to tide you over until I can get downstairs and finish the video, here are some shots of my flooring project:

My master bedroom:






My daughter's bedroom:

The floors look great. Years ago my friend had a home built by his father with wood floors in a similar finish. For some unknown reason he decided to clean them using the dusting spray, Pledge. When we entered his house he insisted everyone remove their shoes so we wouldn't hurt the finish of his floor. In our socks, THAT FLOOR WAS AN ICE RINK!

His sister was the only person I saw fall and her feet flew out from underneath and she was airborne. That was easily 20 years ago and I'll never forget it.

The moral of the story.... DONT CLEAN YOUR WOOD FLOORS WITH PLEDGE unless you want to see some funny, dangerous falls.

Believe me, I know what you're talking about. We've been in this house for 16 years, and my oldest daughter (now 20) slipped and fell face-first on the hardwood in the hallway (right about where the towel is in the 3rd photo) when she was 5. We had to take her to an oral surgeon and have one of her front teeth removed (luckily it was still her baby tooth).

We put runners down in the hallway after that...

Yes. Northern VA...well, more 'West-Northern VA', out I-66. I believe we've had this conversation at one point.
Oh right, right. I think we have talked about this. Well, I'm in the city so we should hit around sometime. Always looking for people.

I also tagged BHBH multiple times long time back as I wanted in, but did not hear anything back. I've since sold my condo and moved to the U.P Michigan area, to give an idea of timeline. I'm still game if it can be sent my way. Not sure who to contact anymore.

Nice floors btw McLovin. I had a similar incident with my 3 year old who was 2 at the time. New floors and he slipped. Good thing is he slipped and fell backwards, landed on his behind and slid all the way from the living room area to the front door. We put rugs all over the house afterwards.

Yes this racquet's travels have come to an abrupt stop. It's disappointing since the last person who received it was all over wanting it.

Who said the video had to be awesome?

The first video was very good. Just put up 30sec of your 2.5 strokes and pass it on! It's not about you! Pass the racquet on so the brotherhood grows!

This is why you never send stuff to the other side of the country. (I believe it's over there some where lol)

Just looks like @BounceHitBounceHit is not the most reliable/speedy guy on here in terms of acknowledging receipt of the racket, recording & posting his video hitting it and mailing the racket on to the next brother!
He could at least post a word to update us about what's going on! Winter is coming...

Sorry guys. I'm in Naples, FL for the week and won't have an opportunity to finish the video until next week. I promise to get the video on here by the end of next week. Maybe...

Is the head shape and mold the same as the microgel radical os? I had a friend who had the zebra os and that was great. I'm trying to get my mg radical is to play like the zebra is. Does the bumblebee play and feel like the zebra os.

So @JGads is out.

It looks like the order is then @BounceHitBounceHit -> @Anton -> me -> then across the pond to @SpinToWin -> @frinton

I might've missed someone in there.
We really need a number system here:
1) @J011yroger
2) @gino
3) @McLovin
4) @BounceHitBounceHit
????
I think we missed @JohnBPittsburgh @Anton

I just pm'd BounceHitBounceHit with my address. I'll be quick given the crap I've dealt out. I've also got others lined up for a doubles match possibly in old Agassi/Nike attire.

I'll go back and look at who else was in. I know a couple are in Europe. @SpinToWin @frinton
That means the cost to ship will be at least $40. I'm in central Ohio and shipping for me to MI or PA will be under $10. I know there were requests from those places too.

Let's do this. Respond by tagging me and I'll compile a list and keep it going even after I've sent it away. Tagging is as simple as typing @dak95_00 and clicking or tapping on my name as it appears. Finally then type, "I want in!"

Finally hit it! Who is next? Please PM address? Sorry for the delay!!! [emoji462][emoji471][emoji462]

PM sent.

Jolly, what do you say I take the Radical over to Long Island for your wood challenge - we'll bring things full circle. Also, I only have to post one video then haha.

@dak95_00, yes I am still in, based in Switzerland near Zurich. There was also @MMQB14 in the Basel-region who wanted to play it too! Thanks for making things a bit more organized!

It is in the mail and on its way to Anton! Again sincere apologies to The Brotherhood for the delay in Nashvegas. BHBH

10) ????
@rc.hudson1 suggested for the final hit we should track down Agassi & have him swing it 'for old times sake'. A pipe dream, I know, but that would be extremely cool if it could happen.

Maybe @J011yroger can bring it to next year's US Open and hand it to him during one of Djokovic's hitting sessions...assuming hes' still coaching Djokovic...or even that Djokovic is still playing tennis...
 
My first endeavor in video editing. Had to record after a few sets of doubles in order to beat the rain.

Not a big fan of the HEAD grip shape. I had trouble keeping my forehand trajectory down. Still, the stringbed felt incredible.

@McLovin should have the frame tomorrow.

Nice inside out forehand at 1:05 baby!

It's been a couple of weeks. This thread started off great.
*awesom idea
*cool retro racquet
*excellent video **

**Probably too good because now everyone is afraid to let us see their 3.0 strokes.

Oh well. My tennis season is quickly drawing to an end. As a school teacher who coaches multiple sports, my free time disappears. I've got practices and lessons to prepare and papers to grade. I've still got two weeks but after that........ WORK!!!!
 
I shot video but have not had a chance to post it. I'll work on that later today if at all possible. I sent the racquet along to Anton a few weeks back. Again, I do apologize for the delay here in Nashville, but please understand team BHBH was in the midst of moving not only their office but their home at the time! A little grace would be appreciated. :)
