The girls' professional tournament is back in town. I noticed the frame as I was stringing it and thought y'all might like some pictures...

The frame had nothing else inside the throat other than the TGK code. It was an 18X20 pattern strung with some Isospeed string.


BTW....the winner of the arm breaker award so far goes to a young lass who plays with the Wilson BLX Tour 90 strung with Prince Poly at 67.

Nice pics and thanks. I'm surprised it so light. I don't even want to think about what that poly felt like at 67 lbs ;)

Could it be? A pro player uses Isospeed Baseline? What version? What tension? Please share!

I think the black grommets look so much better than that white teflon crap!

That's exactly the tension I've settled on for my BLX 90's! But I use BB Ace 18 and it 'settles' very quickly to around 50#, so you might be surprised just how comfy my frame (and perhaps hers, if that Prince Poly drops tension like my 18 g Ace does!) plays. :) :twisted: Best, BHBH

I use the 16L and I say that it looks pretty close, but it's hard to tell...

Yep, that would be 100% UNcustomized TGK. No lead and no silicone...

Do you think that Isospeed string is the new Axon Multi in that girls TGK231.2?

How was the coil memory?

You know, I didn't really pay that much attention to the reel. i think it was the Baseline Speed. There was some coil memory, but it strung up nicely and didn't burn at all. If I get her racquet again, I'll note the Isospeed.

Wow, full bed of Baseline Speed in a 18x20 racquet that is 321g.:shock: She must have a arm and shoulder made out of steel.:)

What got me was stringing that 90 with poly at 67.

The other amazing thing is how often these girls break strings. They'll go through a set of Lux in a couple of hours. Compare that to the guys on the boards and then ask the question about a WTA against a 4.5....
