Wow. A polyester string at 74 lbs. How does Vince get any power at all. Additionally, does he have bionic arms. That cannot be good for your body.

Yeah, I also noticed some of the high string tension on some of these racquets. The sweet spot must be pretty small although increasing the weight of the racquet will increase the sweet spot so who knows.

do you play with butt floss strung at 21 kg?

tennissavy
03-25-2005, 07:53 PM
I take that listing with a grain of salt since the racquets listed are what the pros are endorsing rather than what they are actually using.

When I was stringing with Star Stringing, I was almost seriously injured by one of Haas' string jobs. He does string very tight and when the stringer next to me (George) pulled the first string, the weld on the 12 o'clock stringer post broke and the post came flying past my face and left a hole in the wall.

I can laugh at it now but at the time I thought, dang..

I think Rainer Schüttler doesn't use Polystar anymore... He changed to Isospeed (the i on his stringbed).

Florian Mayer Head Kirschbaum 33/32

Is this lbs or kg? If lbs it is very low but while watching him play I've always felt he must play loose strings.

thebeast
03-27-2005, 11:44 AM
how accurate are the strings listed? I think this was already asked, when someone pointed out that the racquets for all of them obviously aren't accurate.

Also, are there pro's really playing with touch turbo and competition?
