Hey everyone.

I've never really experimented with strings, never gone far past Xcel or Pro Hurricane Tour really. I want a string that really grabs the ball and inflicts maximum spin whilst feeling solid and firm. I've had k90's strung with champions choice and I cant say im a fan of the way it feels, weird eh, its just the gut feels trampoliney and soft, I prefer the firmness of poly.

So basically, poly with maximum spin potential. What do you recommend? I saw that interview with James Blake where he said the string he uses grabs the ball, or maybe wait out until the new babolat strings available to everyone?

If I were you I'd try out Babolat's latest synthetic gut, N.vy, instead. And there's the old standby, Prince's Topspin 15L, the one with Duraflex added in.

Luxilion ALU POWER is probably the best poly out there.

Try Polystar Turbo, offers excellent spin. Here is a picture of the string.http://www.stringforum.net/gallery.php?show=95

My current combo gives feel, firmness, durability, high tension maintenance and grabs the ball. Ashaway kevlar for the mains and natural gut for the cross.
