Rolf says, “My motivation to start offering tennis jewelry came from my tennis memorabilia collection. I now offer affordable jewelry, many of my own design, and use gold, silver and the best quality CZs.

  1. The Etch Swing works well. Several yrs ago my wife got it for me following an 18 month layoff where I thought I was finished as a right hander to relearn the game lefty. Interestingly enough the device loosened up my right elbow enough that I could continue playing. My kids use it…somewhat hard to find now.

    There is a cheaper alternative Geo. Someone at Newks had a racket with a cover on it wrapped with duck tape for extra weight. Same effect.

    Chris, thanks for the tip. George

  2. George, can I get you to mention my QM-1 Camera Mount for tennis courts? Like your book, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. And we have the whole camera kits for people starting from scratch. Hope it’s okay to mention this, and please delete if not. The website is Thanks!

    Mike – yup. i am a believer in using video and readers can search “video” on my site to find the Aug 2010 review i did on your device. thanks. george.

  3. So sad you did not include Score At Hand

    Christine, yes i thought about your item and four others; but featuring five already was enough. Readers can search the site to see my full review of your score keeper in June 2013. Thanks, george.
