My favorite tennis player of all time, Stefan Edberg, at the top of his game in the early 1990s. I enjoyed the final of the US Open 1992 when he beat Pete Sampras to win his second US Open. Edberg is also the sole Junior Grand Slam champion (in one calendar year), pretty impressive.

I strung up both of my O3 tour mp's with the WeissCannon Scorpion 1.22 as mains (52.5) and Wilson Sensation 16ga. crosses (55), last night. I have a light hitting session scheduled for this evening, I'll let you all know how I like it.

If I had it to do over again I would have strung it a bit lower, as it dosen't seem to have as much power as Alu Power. I'm having a bit of a problem hitting deep in the court but my passing shots are dead on accurate and my drop shots have never been better. It appears the tension maintenance and resistance to movement is on par with Alu Power, I want to see how long it lasts before it breaks or it losses enough playability that I want to cut it out.

Darren,

Just FYI, the SPPP plays better the second time out and beyond. I am not sure why, but a lot of other folks that use SPPP have commented on this as well.
