Hi I'm Ray

I am curious to know if there is a connection between playing style and the string tension that ppl tend to use, particularly what type of forehand/backhand strokes you use. What I want to know is: what playing style, grip/strokes, and string tension/string type ppl are using. Please list what type of string material such as Nylon, Poly, Poly/Nylon Hybrid, Kevlar Hybrid, as there are so many different strings and I don't know all of them by name. Thanks.

I'll go first:

Forehand: Eastern (usually hit a flat shot)
Backhand: 1h Eastern
Strings: Prince Synthetic Gut Original / Nylon
Tension: 45lbs
Racket: 98sq in, 16x20 Pattern, 12.7oz, Fischer Pro No.1
Style: Singles, Baseliner, ok at net
