The performance of the new WeissCANNON Turbotwist is shockingly good. It not only exceeded, it SHATTERED all reasonable expectations. This string clearly possesses all of the potential to be brobdingnagian, […]

Posted in Humor/Satire | 4 Comments

It’s almost here. MxD season is about to begin in Atlanta’s premiere doubles league, ALTA. Many of my like-gender friends do not look forward to MxD, but I do. I may go so far as to say I enjoy it even more than men’s doubles. Why? Well, the food at the matches takes a huge […]

A few weeks ago we purchased a FLiP video camera so that we could take video of interesting products and situations we run across in our daily work.  Yesterday we had a few moments so we shot a cheesy video of a problem we found with a Prince Speedport Red.  We had not run across […]

Poly-based hybrids for junior players

Posted in Guts and Glory Announcements | Tagged | 1 Comment
