For those of you not on Facebook, I'm copying a post I just made on the VI
Tennis UK group. Any help much appreciated.
Can any of the Newcastle folks give me some info about the tactile lines you
use - particularly the cord that you put under
the tape? I'd like to buy some, fairly urgently.
By way of background (for anyone interested), all the B1 players at the
northeast tournament agreed that the tactile lines
were a lot better than those used at the 2015 nationals. As such, I've asked
Alex if we can use them for the Cambridge
tournament, and he's amenable to that, provided we can get hold of the cord in
time to trial it at one of our sessions.
That's perfectly reasonable, of course.
Only trouble is, I'm not quite sure what the cord is: bungee cord, possibly (I
think I was told that last year, but I'm not
sure if that's right); and I don't know what diameter has been used.
Aside from the type of cord, I understand the main difference is that the tape
is put down all the way along the cord, rather
than short strips going across it, as has been done elsewhere. That prevents
any possible trip hazards.. The tape we've been
using is just as broad as that used in Newcastle, and is very sticky, so we're
fine for that.
So, can anyone help me out re the cord?
