This is a fun thread, Also to give other people idea what to try out.

What String and what tenison do you use on your racquet. What do you like about it?

07-19-2008, 11:52 AM
were there no other threads like this? there must be! but i will answer for you.

i use cyberflash17 mains and gosen og micro 17 crosses strung at mid tension. i like the spin and less string movement from the mains, and the softer feel from the crosses. i also like that it is a very affordable combo.

I'm working with two hybrids right now:

1. MSV Focus Hex 17 mains & Gosen Micro 17 crosses @ 62/59.
2. Pro Supex Big Ace 17 mains & Pro Supex Titan 17 @ 62/59.

These both have great feel in my RDS 001 mids, and they're really comfortable even when the polys are strung that high.

After a couple of months trying all the poly's strings available out there, I've finally chosen the MSV Focus Hex 1,18 (black) as my favourite.

Very close the Cyber Flash & Cyber Power, but the MSV provides more spin and feeling.

The worst thing about the MSV is the poor tension holding, but this is not a problem for me because I break the string after this decrease of tension is significant.

Also the black color is very nice on my kblade98 and Prince SpeedPort tour!!

Currently in the 2 of 3 ncode 95's: BA (red) mains at 51 and Gosen micro (white) crosses at 54. To soft for me but will restring later on.
The 3rd is going to be BG (white) mains at 57 and Gosen micro (grey) at 59. I think!!??

NXT Max at 59 on a k95.

I have been hitting with them for 3 hours and so far they seem to be one of the best strings for the k95. There's power but its controllable. I'll have to see how long it lasts though.

I'm not sure why, My strings feel REALLY stiff. my brothers Babolat AeroPro Drive Cortex Racquets isnt as stiff feel and he is using full hurricane pro at 58. When I dont hit in the sweet spot it dont go anywhere.

Topspin Cyberflash 17G@ 60lbs..PDR+

I'm a spin junkie lol.

Babolat VS at 60 lbs.

Just the best string for my game.

07-23-2008, 03:22 AM
I am thinking of trying Babolat Duralast, Nadals String only available on The Bay as far as I know, if he's generating twice as much spin as anyone else there must be something good about them. And the yellow color is pretty sweet too!

I wouldn't recommend it, it's incredibly stiff and isn't really anything special. Lord knows why Nadal uses it, plus his spin is from his swing.

...Currently got 1 MG Prestige MP wth Alu Power and VS @ 58lbs and 2 with Alu Power and Gamma Livewire @ 58. When these break i'm going to go back to full Alu Power although I really want to try Big Ace 1.15.

I am a poly fan and tried everything.
The only thing that holds up in my POG Mid is Pacific Polyforce Original. String at 58. Great stuff.

Below- amazing combo- i have it strung on all my rackets, even my father's and my sister's. They all love the setup. Offcourse, everyone thinks that their hybrid setup is the best!

I get a lot of durability from the string. Since they are co-poly's, they are way softer and more responsive. They are ok for me in the beginning, i play better with the combo after it is about 5 sets old! I love it till it breaks. Rather strange. And look at the price- very economical.
