The Problems with Singles Sticks
• If players do not practice with singles sticks then when confronted with them during a tournament match they become a practical and psychological performance barrier.
• In order for the average player to use singles sticks they would have to get the sticks out of the storage shed, have a tape measure and know the measurement to install singles stick.
• Typically players do not see singles sticks except at certain USTA events and worst of all, the first time most junior players ever see singles sticks is at the biggest match of their young careers.
• The first rule of tennis requires the use of singles sticks in order to make a net the regulation height for singles and this critical rule has been largely ignored by our sport because of the impracticality of the singles stick installation process.
The Reel Stick Solution

• The stainless steel adjustment fitting allows precise adjustment of the cable length to the exact distance during initial installation.
• The net band cradle provides for a precise elevation of the net.
• The wide base prevents damage to the court surface and stabilizes the stick during use for singles and storage during doubles.
