View Full Version : i NEED HELP ON STRINGS FOR 18X20 string pattern

01-27-2008, 11:26 AM
well i have had roughly 8x prestige`s now which i absolutely love and have loved for about 6-8 years. i am 17 years old i play with a 93 sq inch head size with a 18x20 string pattern. i am looking for a string that will allow a little bit more spin potential. i am currently using luxxilon big banger ace hybrid 18l. it feels stiff and it doesent move in string bed which means less spin then i should get with a different set. if anyone knows of any good string types i should try im all for it. i would also like to ask you if i should try stringing my racquet lower then 57lbs i feel as though its pretty powerful. so if you guys have any ideas for what type of string i should buy im all for it. please this would be extremely help full. also i am a very aggressive player that just needs a little extra spin to become a better defensive player when the time is needed. thanks very much.

I'm not much help on the tension range for the prestige mid, but I have used pro supex blue gear in 18x20 frames and had more spin than with some more open patterned stringbeds. It really bites into the ball, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

just orderd x-one biophase technifibre for my crosses and luxxilon hexogonal for my mains. hopefully this will work well. and hopefully it will break every 2 weeks. if i get another luxxilon string that doesent break for a month ill be ****ed. i hate cutting my strings lol. they always die on me and feel dead after 2 weeks if they last that long.

Spin as in loopy topspin or low slices? I used the dunlop MW 200G for a considerable period of time. The pacific x-force 18/psgd 18 hybrid was my choice for over a year..
