Safin's yellow string is not Big banger. BB is more of a Baige color. it is pretty yellow color like Pro hurr tour or something like that.

Having been in MC until monday i've seen that either Safin and Verdasco (both BBO usual players) are using <testing?> a yellowish, unmarked, slightly rough string that comes in "generic" Luxilon polybags...no other info about it, sorry :(

Good eyes Fedace, after what Eifel says, it appears that you're right and Safin is using something new.:)

As usual, we're here in Monte Carlo stringing for Safin. He's using Luxilon Big Banger Original as usual.

Fedace
04-15-2009, 07:14 AM
^^Surely with Safin maybe, but both Safin and Verdasco ?? Not likely. I think what is going on is, they are stringing just few of their rackets with this NEW prototype string from Lux. and rest of their rackets with BBO. So perhaps we are not seeing this new string all time, causing even more confusion.

^^^^OK all you clever folks,,,EXPLAIN this gentlemen's post.

We don't have to explain his post. We can't, just like we can't explain 99% of YOUR posts. Ron Yu is Safin's stringer. We don't know who this other guy is, but he's not Ron Yu, and he's probably not Nate Ferguson or Glynn Roberts either. Anyone can make up a bogus post. Watch this.

Roger Federer just signed a lifetime deal to play with Vantage racquets and play in pink high heeled shoes. I don't have the details of the shoe brand, more to come...

See, its that easy. Now you can all discuss.

They tell me that you are P1. Do you guys offer Grip Remolding service??. Can you Re-mold the grip to Size 5 ? Does this remolding process add weight much ? i assume since the grip itself will be bigger so more mold material adding a bit more weight to the handle ??? thanks.

Below is a link to Safin's racquet in Monte Carlo. BB as Ron said.

You give it a rest. How would it already have been strung? By contractual agreement, Ron Yu is the only man in the entire world allowed to string Safin's racuqets. He strings all of Safin's frames. If it was a prototype or something different, Ron would have told us. He's an honest poster and for god's sake, knows a hell of a lot more about what he's talking about than you ever will.

We have no such contract that allows only us to string Marat's frames. He's free to have his racquets strung by whoever he wants. We travel to the Grand Slams and Masters Series events, so he does need to get his racquets strung by others at the smaller events he plays.

By the way Ron, do you find that most players you guys string for are using Big Banger Original or Big Banger Alu Power? From what you know, what is the more popular string between the two?

Nick, in the interview with TW from IW this year(it's on youtube) Nate Ferguson said that all their guys either use BBO or ALU in some form: some as a full job and some as a hybrid. Off the top of my head, I think alu might be a touch more popular with their contracted players: Murray, Djokovic, Fed, and Gonzo, are the main ones I believe.

PED
04-15-2009, 01:18 PM
Nick, I think you would find that alu edges out all other polys overall for the entire pro field as well. Luxilon publishes a list of ALL the pro's and their stringing preferences (including all brand names) and I believe over 55% (it may be higher) use some form of lux product with regular ALU power being the most popular.

04-15-2009, 01:29 PM
Hey guys, Fedace might be considered a clown and whatever, i'm not one to judge, but i thought the exact same thing as him when I was watching the Safin/Hewitt match.

When he sat down at the change of ends and put his racquet down I immediately thought: "Those strings are different..."

I've watched a lot of Safin matches over the years and have never even given a second thought when looking at his racquets.

Maybe it was the light and the angle, maybe it wasn't, but during that 2nd set against Hewitt his strings definitely stood out more than usual. During play, at change of ends, those strings just stood out all the time.

anyway, i'd just like to say that bbo never looks like bbo on tv. i'm not sure what it is, but even the close up shots of verdasco's racquet that i'm looking at right now look like they could be gut or any other natural color string.

I'm watching the rerun right now on channelsurfing.net.. Let's see if Safin string is different in the second set. The first set his string looks to be his regular string, but the picture isn't too clear..

edit:
Well.. two all in the second set and I don't see any difference between the strings in the first set and second set. There are times when the string looks very yellow, but that's only when Safin hold the racket against the green backboard with yellow letters and the sun definitely has something to do with it. Overall the string just looks like his regular string.

crazylevity
04-16-2009, 04:21 AM
^^ The choice is clear.

Even if Ron mentioned that Safin is not contractually bound to let P1 string ALL his racquets, why would he pay P1 enormous amounts of money and let someone else string his racquets? Besides, P1 also does customizing work, and if Safin tried a new string, Ron would have either cut it out, or Safin would have mentioned it to him.

The probability that he tried a different string, during a tournament, is...I dunno...nil? zilch?

Hey Ron,

I spent 3 1/2 years in Europe and where you are now. If you and your crew want to get away if you have some downtime one afternoon, hop on the train by the Casino in Monte Carlo and head to a town called Villefranche Su Mer. It is about a 15 minute ride to the coolest of towns. There is a small outside joint that sells some of the best American hamburgers you will find. Guy is in the center of the courtyard by the water by the big stairs. He has some triangular signs out front. Burgers will taste as if you grilled them yourselves in your backyard.

Also, a few hundred meters to the East of that joint is a cool little bar with a French dude that speaks perfect English and loves American blokes. He has his bar adorned with American military garb, has a few pool tables there, sells some American domestics at a cheap rate, and will listen to any American for as long as they will talk. Place is quiet and you guys can relax if you need to unwind from the fast pace surrounding Monaco/Monte Carlo...

Let me know if you find the place. I have photos of me at the burger joint.

Are you so naive or just trolling ? I was referring to what that gentleman had saw at the site. He also saw the Yellow string just like i have. I never said Ron P1 was wrong or he is not telling the truth. i really don't care. I only care about what i post as i saw it. Who the heck knows what the package in the string room saids ?????? I am sure Ron would know since he was there.

Ron does not work in the stringing room. They work out of their hotel rooms. The gentleman claimed to see generic lux bags? Yellow string? Maybe Safin did have his sticks strung up from a previous tournament...but considering the last tournament was a MS event and Ron and Nate strung his sticks there, I don't see anything indicating Marat had anything in his sticks from the previous tournament other that what P1 put in them at the previous MS tournament.

And to answer your posed question to me--I'm not trolling. But of your 10,000 posts, most of them are just mind-boggling. Sorry, but it is REALLY difficult to decipher when you are being genuine and or just padding your post count....

I am not saying he is lying-but I am saying you may have assumed he was a stringer at the site.

Look...

Safin is paying premium dollar for premium service with P1. Safin also is on record for complaining about the cost of strawberries in England. I highly doubt that if he is worried about the cost of a berry--that he is going to go outside of P1 and pay a stringer in the stringing room to throw in some top-secret 'experimental' Lux string.

Unlike Rafa at the AO, you never see Safin giving out sticks to the ballboys during a semi-final because the tension is wrong because of different stringers on different machines with different techniques.

And...if there is an experimental Lux string out there--I would safely assume Ron and P1 have it and Marat could have them install it under their contract.

Fedace

I don't have a pic either. I only saw the string on TV when Safin was playing. and email from the Luxilon just said there is a new string coming out and didn't really make a comment that that was what Safin was using. so i can't confirm or deny that what Safin was using was the new string.

Fedace, I can't help but notice that you completely disregard knowledgeable sources, but then one random person comes along and makes a comment that agrees with what you are saying, then all of a sudden their word becomes law. There are times that you just need to give up. You don't have any evidence except one person who made a comment that cannot be verified, while there have been very convincing arguments against that claim. If everything you says is true, then we will all be proved wrong. For now, if all you can give us is that you saw a mysterious "best string ever" on TV in Safin's racquet, especially when his personal stringer says otherwise, just give it up man.

^I already said this in case you haven't read it. I am sure Ron is correct in saying he strung Safin's racket with BB. I completely BELIEVE him.

I play with RQIS tour-1 and now i am trying some new rackets as well. RDIS 100 for one. also Dunlop 4D 500 tour.
What do you think of the 4D 500 tour? I liked it a lot more (two hour demo) than the regular Aerogel 500 tour.

I don't have a pic either. I only saw the string on TV when Safin was playing. and email from the Luxilon just said there is a new string coming out and didn't really make a comment that that was what Safin was using. so i can't confirm or deny that what Safin was using was the new string. Certainly Luxilon didn't say anything about what Safin was using.
Did luxilon say anything else about this string, like a release date or attributes of the string?

A little. All I know about the thread is that it was mostly argueing. But if there actually is a new "prototype" string from luxilon I want to know!

As for all the aggressive posts, I think Will Ferrell as Jackie Moon said it best in Semi-Pro: "Everybody Love Everybody" E.L.E

Safin's strings looked bright yellow. Then I realized that he looked bright orange. I adjusted the color on my TV and eveything looked normal again, and Safin was still choking away the match. He actually looked red, but his strings looked natural in color, except for the stencil. And then he destroyed his frame, as usual, and it was red, white and black with a blue grip and specs of orangish clay. 'Twas a pity.

I love this thread.
