Just wondering how many people actually use Dri fit cloths.  I only just recently discovered them, and like the polyester much better because of how the sweat drys faster.

Are you serious, dri-fit type materials are the only way for me ever since I started using them!  There not like all that much better but I still definitely prefer them!  I sweat ridiculously though!

Love my dri-fit. I troll around sports shops looking for deals on dri-fit shirts. I prefer to pay $20-$30 rather than $50.
I've got enough now where I don't need to bother with t-shirts or cotton.  :H

Well, as anyone knows that has played tennis with me more than once...

I have about 20 (literally) gray shirts that my mom has always bought me and I love them for tennis.  They are "Jerzees" brand and I love em.  They are something like $5 or $6 at some shop in my mom's town.  If I am on the tennis court and wearing a shirt that is not a plain gray t-shirt it is because the club I am playing at requires different attire.  I am cotton all the way.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Same here, shamelessly because I'm cheap.  Between tennis t-shirts (given out at tournaments, etc) and freebies that my wife gets from work (she works for a fashion retailer), I have a ton of cotton t-shirts.  I can always find something better to spend my money on than clothes.  Though I have to say that I find the idea of the dri fit stuff appealing, maybe someday I'll try it.
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

You should try it at least once.  Everyone who has tried has switched.  ;)

Yeah, ofcourse, dry fits are awesome.
Dont fight about tennis, support tennis.

Welcome back Victor. Some people were thinking you'd left the forums.

5 days might be a long time off for some of the more obsessive posters, like you and I, but not for the a lot of the posters on here.

You got it! I have played with dri-fit but I could really care less for the difference.

Ah, I see.  Internet problems suck.  When I worked from home and the internet was down I was basically shut off from the outside world.  Luckily I kept the work server in my house so I was fine to keep working with ease, but the others could not connect to the server.  Now we are in an office and the internet hasn't really been down in the year and a half that we have been there.  It would suck if it was though.  Good to see you back!
Good Luck on the Court!!!
