View Full Version : Taming the iPrestige MP

03-19-2004, 08:02 AM
Before I finally give up on my iPrestige MP, can anyone suggest how to string it (type/tension) so it doesnt burt my shoulder?

I have it strung with 17# babolat natural gut @58 and my shoulder starts hurting after about 2 hours hitting with it. I feel a pinch in my shoulder blade area.

I currently play with the PC600 which definitely doesn't pinch my shoulder but just want the extra pop from the iP.

If it was me I would try #16 babolat gut (or maybe a hybrid) which you might need to experiment with!

As for tension I would try it @54.

Hope this helps!

It's not going to get a lot more arm-friendly than it is with 17g gut at a moderate tension. It might be time to just move on.

What is the PC600 strung with? Maybe you can use that instead of the iPres.
