Hi All,

I hear so much good thing about SPPS and would like to try on Ncode 90, recently I trung with Alpha Revelation 16 @ 57 and kind a like it.

With one should I try 16 or 17 full job or hybrid. Any any advise ia greatly appreciated.

i am using the 16L, and have been wanting to try the 17, but i cant find any reason to do so....now i do have an open string pattern, so you might beable to get away with a 17 gauge...i can only speak of a full job, i am currently strining it at 56lbs on a constant pull machine...hope this helps..

Since Poly lasts forever, I don't know why people don't use the thinnest gauges available!?! Hybrid it with a thick (16g at least) soft multi in the crosses, and then just restring when the multi breaks. By that time the poly is usually dead anyways.

Thinner = better feel and more spin.

i used a full job of 17 gauge at 51 lbs. very comfortable string, so a full job shouldnt cause any discomfort. i wish i'd strung higher though. +- 57 lbs. should be good.

Plenty of people like me break even 17 gauge poly quickly depending on the frame used. Right now I am using an old Prince Graphite II, and I break 16 gauge poly weekly! I prefer to restring only like 1x a month if possible, so I'm even looking into 15L strings.

Thank you all very much for your advise.

python, hybrid it and a soft cross won't break it. It takes a while for any cross to break (just rubs less/differently), so restring once it does.

I can imagine that an all poly job can be broken quickly, but with a soft multi in the crosses, it won't cut into the mains and the setup should (does, it's the one I use) last at least 2--3wks.

If you dont break strings get the 17L...a hybrid would be a better idea in that stiff midsize frame.

Its not that polyester have good durability so you should use a thinner gauge. 18 gauge has a way different feel than 16.

To adjust the feel, adjust the tension...

I have SPPP 1.28(16) in an n95 @ 53lbs. I have no problem generating spin.

I broke a set of these in a Head FXP Instinct Team in 2 months playing 4-5 hours a week.

If you generally hit near the top of the frame, forget about 17 gauge Poly anything. You will snap it in a heartbeat. But, if you hit in the center of the racket, you can use 17 gauge SPPP. I've used it for awhile, but be prepared to cut it out after about three weeks if you don't break it because it, as well as every poly I have ever tried, will go dead after three weeks.
