Ode to the Mono

Posted in Racquets | Tagged , | 18 Comments

Very little information is available online about the Prince Precision Mono, one of the coolest racquets ever produced. It is entirely possible this racquet was introduced years ahead of it’s time. The tennis world just wasn’t ready, and still isn’t ready, for a radical retro paradigm shift back to the monoshaft design. Still, this is […]

The most biased, politically incorrect and completely over-the-top racquet review–EVER! (And it is ALL TRUE!…well, mostly true)

Posted in Racquets | Tagged , | 4 Comments

As soon as I began warming up the first time with the Donnay demo that had been sitting in my bag waiting its turn for a playtest, I could sense something very special was about to go down.  In this case it was my league tennis opponent who went down…hard…extremely hard…whimpering off the court kinda […]

Playing MANTIS!

Several weeks ago we were proudly adding great-playing racquets that were arm-friendly to our inventory.  We did extensive playtesting and brought in a large selection of Donnay frames and a few from Pacific.  We were ecstatic (and still are!) about these terrific additions to offer our customers.  As we were finalizing our plans to carry […]

Since our last entry, bad weather has prevented us from significant play time.  However, we have been able to get out for a couple of hitting sessions and feel it is time to update our experiences with the playtesting of this racquet.

Tonight was the first live action with The Natural racquet.  As promised in the previous entry, I am going to use this blog as as a diary to fully document my personal journey of discovery with this racquet. The night began with my teammates laughing hysterically at the silly looking racquet.  I could have cared […]

The Natural Tennis Racquet – A Diary

Posted in Racquets, The Natural Tennis Racquet | Tagged , , , | 3 Comments

It has been several weeks since our last blog entry.  Our customers have been excellent to us during these difficult economic times and we have been blessed to continue growing.  The downside of growth is there is less time to devote to non-essential business functions such as blogging.  2010 will likely find fewer blog entries […]

Dear Prince…

Posted in Racquets | 1 Comment

I realize that I have been hard on you, leveraging some fairly significant criticisms in recent blog entries. The purpose of today’s post is to issue a KUDO. That’s right, I am about to say something nice. Today I examined the new EXO3 Classic for the first time. It appears as if the channels on […]

Just Bend Over.

I can’t even begin to describe how frequently I see this particular wear pattern on the headguard of racquets. Most frequently it is observed on the frames of junior players. I suspect if you are a racquet stringer you have seen it too. In my shop I have several juniors who regularly wear through the […]

Design flaw, incompetence or conspiracy at Prince?

Posted in Other Equipment, Racquets | Tagged | 3 Comments

Sometimes you just have to wonder. Prince, claiming to be the company to produce the most technologically advanced racquets on the planet seems to continually fall short. In previous years technologies that were not ready for prime time were rushed to the market. The grommetless Air series is an example. Strings shanking all over the […]

In an effort to continue locating the safest and most arm friendly racquets for those suffering from tennis elbow, we have just received the Kneissl Black Star for playtesting purposes. The specs on this racquet fill a void between the lighter weight, yet head heavy PowerAngle racquets and the heavier Avery racquets. The Kneissl Black […]

Power Angle – “Going Diagonal”

PowerAngle RACQUETS “Go Diagonal!” No gimmicks here. An innovative design that actually stands up to the claims being made.
