View Full Version : Best string/combo to use?

07-20-2008, 10:19 AM
I currently have 4 rackets (different types):
Wilson K90, PS85 SV, Babolat PS Ltd, and an old Sting

I have reels of these strings:
Sigmum Pro Poly Plasma 17, Gosen Polylon SP 17, Gamma Livewire 17, Gosen OG Sheep Micro 17
Gamma Professional Spin 16, Luxilon Big Banger ALU Rough 16, Babolat VS Team 17

I'm having a lot of trouble finding the right combination for feel(mostly)/topspin for my K90 and my PS Ltd. I've tried VS gut / Rough, livewire main + poly plasma crosses, full gut too (wasn't really right). I don't mind any tension changes, but I like to keep my tension somewhere between 55-63.

Please give me some recommendations :)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I'm open to use full set of poly, or full set of gut, multi, or synthetic, or just hybrid it.

I would try Sigmum Pro Poly Plasma 17 in the crosses @ 56-57lbs with Gamma Livewire 17 mains @59-60lbs if I had those reels-
with the Gosen OG as a backup if the live wire didn't last enough ( I tend to break live wire quick for some reason).

I've enjoyed this reverse hybrid type set up for the last few months using BBO crosses and sensation mains at similar tensions. Don't feel like I can miss when it is pretty fresh.
