I had some arm problems this summer but i have not been getting them in over a month. I have been stretching my arm and doing excersizes. Do you guys think it is safe to use revenge 17 in a full job or should I hybrid it with something lik Gosen OG Micro or superfine play? And if you are wondering i am using a Pure drive Roddick

Revenge is very stiff and harsh, it's sort of like Duralast in that sense. I would recommend anyone with arm problems to stay well clear of it.

Your racket isn't exactly arm friendly either. I would go for a multi or a soft poly like Pro Supex Big Ace or Luxilon's M2, Alu Fluoro or Ace.

i thought luxilon strings were some of the stiffest strings on the market

I know by that description that you have not played with Revenge. I used it extensively as r200c and i have a reel right now. It is one of the softest FEELING polys ive used. much softer than hurricane or pht. It did get a high stiffness rating but it plays very soft and dampened. Kind of like M2 but not quiet as soft. I don't like it as much as alu power because its not stuff enough. You have 0 to worry about in terms of arm problems.

Star...does revenge live up to its hype about tension maintenance? How many hours of play can you get out of it before it goes dead?
