View Full Version : Next String Job for Kblade Tour

12-21-2009, 09:29 AM
I recently bought a used Wilson Kblade Tour that came strung with Luxilon in the mains and Wilson NXT in the crosses at 60lbs. The gauge looks to be 17. I like how the racquet plays but it seems to be lower powered than the demos I tried that had all multifilament of some sort. So, I am thinking of restringing with Wilson NXT 17 at the low end of the range (maybe 50lbs). Compared to the current string job, I think I should expect more power(lower tension), but what about spin? Not sure if I will gain or lose spin. Also, I have read good reccomendaions for the Technifibre Biphase 17. Is that a better choice than the Wilson string or about the same? Thanks

I only hit with poly in my KBTs, but I think regardless of string type, going with a low tension is critical. String too high and you'll feel like you're swinging a baseball bat.

I string mine at 52lbs, and found that tension to be a nice compromise in spin, comfort and power.
