Hey guys,

1) I just played with Klip Legend, and I LOVE the crispness of it. It plays fantastic, It is lower powered (Which allows me to drop tension a bit) and gives a ton of spin, it's great. But the question is.... is there any other Gut as crisp as this string? I'm sorta hoping not because the price for this is also great, but I haven't tried too many guts, and I don't really wanna waste money trying out some more.

2) I've been using Poly Force crosses, I love the playability of these two, but is there any string that'll give me more spin? I was leaning towards ALU Rough, but am open to other suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

I don't really have the answer to your question, but I have a question for you myself, :D. Regarding Klip Legend, exactly how low powered is it? I string synthetic gut at 61lbs; what would you say would be an acceptable tension for klip legend?

If you go up about 3-5 lbs, I think it would perfect from there. But it's all on person feel, because what i find high or low powered can be the opposite for you. But I think you should up the tension a bit and try it out though!

The Pacific gut line--Prime, Classic, Tough Gut--all qualify, in varying degrees. OTOH, there has been a side discussion going on for some time about the possible meaning of "crispness." Whatever else it implies, there seems to be general agreement that it isn't just firmness or resiliency; what's your take on it, then!???

I'm talking about the noise and the feeling you get in your arm when you hit the ball. It doesn't really have to do with firmness, but just that great sensation you get once you make contact. I can't describe it any other way.... sorry :/.
