i am getting a head flexpoint and still can't decide which strings to put in it.
Head FXP 17 or Kirschbaum super smash 17???
please give your input. which looses tension faster and breaks quicker?
I hit a topspin forehand, with a more flattened out back hand, i like to smash my backhand from the baseline, i avoid my forehand. haha. please help.

Kirschbaum loses tension more quickly (polyester) while Head presumably breaks more quickly (polyamid/polyester composite).

super smash is a first generation poly. it will feel nice for a few hours then rapidly lose tension. feels fairly soft for a poly if you don't string it too high.

i would go with the FXP.

what racquet are you getting? open pattern go with 16, tight pattern go with the 17.

Can't you try the Kirschabaum from their website only for the cost of shipping? I'd definately do that if you're considering the string.

Head Flexpoint Instinct

it's got a fairly tight string pattern so I'd go with the 17g
