5.0 out of 5 stars good value in a hygeine/grooming product, July 6, 2013
this product has a run of the mill citrusy-clean scent but not unpleasant, and likely wouldnt clash with colognes.

it cleans skin well and has moisturizers. it doesnt seem to leave my hair dry or oily for a combo product, but clean.

i also shave with it and oddly i find it to be clearly superior to many shaving oriented products.

recommended.

to me, BF musically was peaking here. the arrangements are awesome, ratty groves mixed with sort of a dull saw blade surf vibe.

4.0 out of 5 stars good traction and thicker than some, July 20, 2012
This review is from: Gamma Supreme Overgrip (Sports)
i purchased these to add a layer over a gamma ultra-cushion grip on a pair of donnay tennis rackets.

the 4-5/8 grips were a tad on the small side and these overgrips gave the extra bit of diameter needed to get a better grip.

the surface is a leathery-rubbery blend and provides a solid hold.

4.0 out of 5 stars soft, hefty racket, May 4, 2012
this racket swings on the heavy side. it has a soft feel and with the mass and weight distribution you can plow through groundstrokes....good depth without the rigid vibrations.

for me (shoulder issues) the serve takes a little more preparation to get the heavy racket up to speed. but the mass can whack the ball accuratly and with a positive follow through.

volleys put some strain on my wrist.

i like the narrow beam and sub100sqin headsivze.

3.0 out of 5 stars slightly misnomerd perhaps, but good shelf brand q sauce, April 12, 2012
im from nc...where the coastal plain meet the piedmont. the triangle area.

if one went to get barbeque (a thing, not something performed) it was chopped or pulled pork that was showered with a very, very thin vineager sauce, usually hot, with black and red pepper, maybe a bit ciderish flavor and sometimes only a faint red tint from some type of tomato part.

it was a sauce sprinkled all over the pulled pork in a small shaker bottle. the best there is.

bbq discussions as a child told me that mustardy bbq sauce was fromm the sandhills (south south-east nc and south carolina.) which is why i find the carolina blue label odd.

but this sauce is pretty good on pork and some beef. it has an ok tangy-zest and not too sweet and reasonably priced.

a good alternative to all the red sauces.

4.0 out of 5 stars probably better for players than swingers (16g), April 2, 2012
i have the 16g version of this string on an oversize (110sqin) wilson nfusion racket.

i will compare this string to what i had on my racket before....an experiment with 18g solinco tourbite.

this string is much softer than polyester strings. it provides good power but not as precise a feel on heavy spin groundstrokes.

the poly i was using at 60lbs tension was dreamlike on backhand topspin and slice backcourt groundstrokes (extreme bite and good accuracy) but it felt like i was swatting with plywood on my forehand, and was tough to generate power on running shots when looping for topspin.

this string gives better depth and probing on my forehand if i take some of the spin off and less precise hits on my backhand and certainly less spin.

which is why to me they seem better suited for someone with a varied game...s and v, 'pushing', etc. as opposed to groundstroke point building.

the strings do move around quite a bit and need constant resetting on the racket face.

summ. a good power string with softness and they appear to be durable.


Unique Whatagrip Tennis Overgrip Black

4.0 out of 5 stars great porduct and fun to put on, March 16, 2012
i use a whatagrip on my tennis racket. i could use a roughly 4 and 11 or 12-16ths grip, just above a 4 and 5/8ths.

i add a standard grip wrap to my rackets and then apply the whatagrip over the additional standard aftermarket wrap.

this provides the grip size i need while the whatagrip covers the seams (than can fold up on occasion) and gaps in the standard wrap i apply while still leaving the ridges (knurls)in the grip.

absorbs moisture well too.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent shelf brand salsa, March 14, 2012
this is a delicious salsa. it has a thinner consistency than many of the other varieties in the grocer.

the ingredients are chopped or blended finer yet it still holds to chips well.

it isnt hot but has a irresistible pepper seed zest.

also, it is nearly identical in taste and texture to many mexican restaurant salsas i have had.

recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars decent recreational recket, February 23, 2012
i purchased this racket from a non amazon retailer. it was 30 bucks.

i have hit with very expensive rackets before and they do seem to possess a better feel and headlightness when striking the ball....but for 30 dollars you can get ok control and decent power with this racket. i have found that more expensive rackets seem to absorb vibration better than what is claimed here as Fusionlite??

there is quality in the assembly however.

i have large hands and have to make my grip in excess of 4 5/8 grip size with extra wrappings...but this hasnt been a problem. i dont understand the racket sizing scheme on amazon either.
