View Full Version : 15 gauge polyester

Does anyone know where I can find this type of string in the US? I use to use Big Banger 5-star but now there isn't anything that seems to match up well that I can find on the Tennis Warehouse site.

Aren't there any 16 gauge polys that work for you?
I see you use Cyber Flash. On the CF reel, there's labelling for 1.35, 1.30 and 1.25 mm, so it looks like they make a 15 gauge version, but I don't see anyone actually selling it. A quick spin around a couple of my string sites didn't show any 15 guage polys.

A 15-poly would last forever. You'd have to cut it out for sure. Not sure if it would be good for spin, unless a super open pattern.

Rafa seems to think it is.

I typically do not play with a set of poly strings after it feels like the string bed has gone dead so I am stringing my racquets after about 5 or 6 hours of play.
Back when I used BB 5-star I felt that I was getting a tad bit more power but was able to keep the shot in with the extra topspin I was producing.
I get great control with Cyberflash but I really want to try another set of 15 guage poly again.
I just seemed that I was getting more topspin potential using a higher gauge string at low tensions.
I would love to try the thicker Cyberflash but I did not see the option to buy it when I purchased my reel.
