Jamesdster's Tennis (but mostly injuries) Journal

I hit for about 20 minutes last night with a club demo......Head Metallix 10 tennis racket

It felt like a very solid racket but is WAAAAAY light (at least compared to my Dunlop).  It would take quite a while to get my timing down with this one.

Made of a specially designed matrix of carbon fibers and a new crystalline metal alloy. This alloy’s grain-size is 1000 times smaller than that of a typical metal*. The decreased grain size means increased performance, or, as the Hall-Petch Effect states: smaller grains = stronger material. The result is a lighter, stronger and more powerful racquet than ever before.
The most powerful and most advanced game-improvement HEAD racket ever!
Also incorporates Head Flexpoint technology.
Beam: 28/30/32 mm
Head size: 800 cm²
Weight: 245 g unstrung.
Balance: 350 mm / even
Length: 695 mm
Gripsize: 1-5
String Pattern: 16/19
Swingstyle: S10
tennisnuts power level: 10
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

So does this mean Metallix=Nano tech? Sounds very familiar.
Another superlight head heavy racquet for your perusal. :whistle:

What, no mention of last night and how I allowed you to actually touch the "Dunlop Revelation Dinosauric 3"?  You know that wand felt like magic in your hands  ;;)

Actually, I had this bizarre itch and rash that kept me up all night!   I figured it was caused by the "D-Rev-Dino-3"!    :lmao:

The D-Rev-Dino 3. It's a beautiful thing. A natural. We can work with this!

Maybe Dunlop will hire both of you for their sales dept.  It DOES have a nice ring to it though  :)~

As big a Rush fan as I am....
2112 wasn't even Rush's best album.
The 2112 suite was awsome, but the second side is full of OK/good songs.
Farewell To Kings/Hemishperes/Permant Waves/Moving Pictures/Signals/Grace Under Pressure/Power Windows has to be one of the best run of absolute brilliance any band has ever accomplished. Caress of Steel and 2112 were just precursers to that.

Oh man, this is super cool - I drop in on the DSter's journal to find some Rush references - as Buckeye would say, Hell's yeah!

I can respect DSter's opinion here, though my personal opinion is more along the lines of DMastous.  I do wish I could have experienced the release of 2112 though - it deserves props for being the groundbreaking piece of art rock that it was/is.
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

Ah yes...Caress of Steel actually has my anthem on it.."I Think I'm Going Bald"   :)) .  Also, I like the funkadelic "Necromancer" a lot.

Played dubs today with a pretty good player from the Thurs night group.  We played against a couple of 4.0's and won 6-1 6-1 then 6-2 3-1 in garbage time.  I really like these Head rackets I've been demo-ing.

So is this the end of the Dino-3? So soon after it's been dubbed so adroitly?
Shame. :whip:

The demise of the Dino-3 has been greatly exaggerated.  I just haven't strung the poor babies so I am FORCED to use another brand. :))
