I still like Wilson rackets.... was eyeing the Pro Staff 85 at Leisure Sports a few weeks back, but I know I will never play tennis again. Knee can't take it.

At least you got sponsored by Nike... were you using the Nike cross trainer (made popular by Agassi) or the Nike with the neon orange 'M' (I can't remember the model name)

Started with competitive squash, then moved to competitive tennis, then to aggressive skating (inline), then to competitive inline/roller hockey, then to ice hockey, then to golf, then cars, then back to golf Smile

I was using Nike when ACG and Dri-Fit just started. 1996 to 1998.

from 1998 to 1999, FILA took over...

WILSON was from 1993 to 1998.

SBH is a lao chiao. Any driver he will also be able to launch pretty well Eiji. Just whether he feels any difference from his personal perception. Does it has the 'feel good' factor? That is the question. Tio boh SBH ?

DGMan,

Ivan kindly re-glued my TM Quad R7's head after it flew about 30 metres onto the OCC driving range grass outfield yesterday.

The guy next to me at the bay was shocked!

And it's not cos I ama super hard hitter, it is that a (to remain unmentioned) other custom fitting shop who glued it before (twice already) did not do a good job it seems.

The OCC ball pick-up machine even ran over it while the head lay on the grass--fortunately it just scratched the head a bit.

Ivan did a good job.

Thanks, guys.

FYI Where2Golf magazine will be only online when recommencement of publishing begins.

Where2Go magazine (local F&B) should be printed early next month--May/June issue.

Cheers.

CK

Instead of answering PMs, i will share a little on what the loft, kickpoint and frequency of the shaft translate to in real terms.

if you are getting too much or too little maximum height (for Swing Speed 80 mph - in the low 20 metres, 90 mph in the mid 20 metres and 100 mph in the high 20 metres). however your shaft is not the main cuplrit, its the golfer's swing as many who have come by here have found out. this include those who managed to drop their spin rate from 4700 to 3200 rpm with the same shaft with just a slight change to their swing motion at impact.

Most golfers will also find out that their best combination is something they have not considered. Eg a stiff shaft at (250 cpm) with a 10.5 degree lofted driver may be better than the same shaft with a 9.5 degree loft.

There are more but i got a few customers waiting so i will elaborate when i have time...

And the clubhead face also? Deep or shallow, depending if one can launch the ball or not? Neutral

I have accepted the prescription, but the medicine wans't ready.
I will take my medication on Monday.
DGman is right, he pointed out my set up error.
Let's see if I could regain my lost distance.

BTW, I will but up my tour burner for sales, since I have ordered the new poison.
