View Full Version : stringing global gut: stringer/user review

05-02-2010, 03:37 PM

replaced alu/tecnifibre strings in head youtek extreme couple days ago with set of global 16L...learned about these strings on this forum

stringing went easily...two-piece...mains at 58.1 and crosses at 59.1 and last pull before tie-offs at about 60.1...global string laced without problem and went through tight grommets without any technical assistance...had set wise tennis head to 10% prestretch...did not encounter any kinks or other snags during installation....

hitting: seemed to provide a marked improvement in power and accuracy...many forehands were diving inside baseline and rebounding against backstop without bouncing...just an overall better feel than previous non-gut strings

have only rarely been able to afford VS gut prior...but must say that i don't recall being so favorably impressed with VS as with these strings...probably, though, just the usual wishful thinking

nonetheless, think i'll be ordering more globals....
