Do you have elbow problems?

Big ace is good, but maybe cyber power if you want more power.

Lloyd how is the micro?

Hit with it this morning, loved it.
STill thinking of a blue gear reel, but after this mornings hit with big ace micro, i think i might have to get a reel of the BAM. I will try blue gear 1.19mm first though

Have you broken the micro yet?
What's it like compared with BA?

No, this morning was my first hit with it, and i only played two sets. But it was great. Just more feel, bit more power, and a bit more spin also. Mainly feel though i think.

The first step is to get a thicker string...if you are using 17g PSGD then go to the 16. If you are breaking a 16 then you might want to look at a poly hybrid using the PSGD for the crosses. CyberPower, Big Ace and Cyber Flash all make great poly mains.

I second this. Do not go up to full poly unless you are having durability problems with the hybrid.

Agreed, although i have not used cyberflash yet. I would also add blue gear to that list if you are looking for spin. Out of those though, i would say cyber power has the most power and is the softest, if you are looking for that.

Lloyd have you hit with 1.17 BA?

That will be less durable than full PSGD. PSGD mains and NRG crosses would just be a waste of money and still not durable..

Well you said NRG above^

What tension do you string full PSGD at?

Drop your poly mains 10% (from your full PSGD tension) and keep the crosses at normal tension.

yeah my bad, i mean pro red code. um i normally have psgd from 60- 62. so should those stay and have the red code be 58-60? and have you ever plyed red code? whats it like? i wnated to know becuase i loved the feel nrg2 and it was a 16 gauge, but it jsut broke too fast for the money...

I havnt played with either but NRG2 and red code are totally different. Poly vs Multi, Stiff vs soft etc

yeah. im not into these crazy string jobs. im a high level varsity high school player prlly gonna play d3 tennis. im hoping to qualify for state this year, and i want a string that will last me for maybe 2-4 weeks and has good spin potential and good power. im not trying to gt into natural gut and stuff, thats insane. lol

Try 56 redcode mains and 60 crosses. That should be fine.

Pro Red Code is a typical poly...stiff, low powered, great spin/control and very durable. Downside is it lacks touch/feel and power.
