View Full Version : Strings for Microgel Presitge

09-16-2008, 03:37 PM
Hey Guys,

I just got me 3 new microgel prestige pros which are strung with pht at around 56. I used to use this setup on my prince 03 tours which were leaded up, but on the microgels im lacking a bit of pop. Im leaning towards getting a hybrid with PHT and Xcel, anyother suggestions. I like hitting with plenty of topspin and mostly stay at the baseline.

You could get a more powerful poly (like pro supex big ace or topspin cyberpower), drop the tension or get a softer cross.

Stay away from xcel...its mushy and really is poor for the money. If you go for a soft cross a solid core synthetic works fine....Pro Supex titan is really soft and so is Forten Sweet.

I hit Prestige Pro's and use the following setup:

Cyberflash 17 mains @ 54-56lbs and Forten Sweet crosses @ 58-60lbs

Love it!

Also have used:

Big Ace 16mains/Spiral Flex cross (same tensions as above). It's good, but would do the 17g IMO.

Probably my favorite set ups on this frame for my game have been:
Red Code mains 56 and Spiral Flex crosses at 58.
Also BB Alu mains at 56 Spiral Flex crosses at 58.
I also really like a full set up Klip Armor Pro at 61. The first 2 set ups are 17g mains with 16g crosses that last is full 17g. I play almost all singles and almost completely from the baseline. I rarely come to net.

I dont have the MG Prestige, but I'm about to try SPPP @55/ Gosen @ 60. After that, I'm going to try Pro Redcode and gosen at 55/60 also.

Similar to the above guy, I will be stringing my midplus with SPPP@ 52lbs.

The review on this poly is great, and has great tension maintenence compared to most polys.

I honestly did not like SPPP in my Prestige Pro. Just didnt' like the feel I got from it....to each their own I guess!

Well, my TW Head Classic Mids came alive with Ashaway Dynamite WB 17 at 50 lbs. I do not use extreme grips so little shifting- use string savers, plays with solid power and control - maintains tension...
Just a thought...
