Wilson Kblade 93, Spiky Shark mains, PS Spiral Flex Black crosses. Let's just hope it plays well hah!

So far, this is my best looking string job (not quality wise, aesthetics wise). What's your personal favorite looking string job?

Looks very good to my eyes. Good match to the frame!

The one I really enjoyed looking at was BM mains and PSGD purple crosses in my rebel. It obviously didn't match my frame, and I didn't love how it played, but it looked good regardless of all of the above.

Currently the rebel has Typhoon mains and maxim touch crosses. Looke decent, but I'm about to string up the other with spiral flex black crosses and tyhpoon mains. I think that will look very sharp! Maybe i'll get a pic posted.

Haha that hybrid is looking pretty sick
Personally, I like uniform color string beds, like a setup that's all red or all black.. best looking imo

PMmm, I've got one of the free sets of typhoon from TD. Haven't played with it yet though. However, the stick in the picture is my sister's and we're playing combo mixed dubs in a tourney this weekend, so if it sucks, then not only was the string choice bad, but we also lost partly because of it :lol:

Anything that looks that good must play well.

When i was using the same kbt, msv hex mains (black) and sppp crosses (orange) looked just as sweet.

I guess I could call it "The Bengal", or something.

pvaudio-Let me know how those Pro Supex Synthetic Gut Spiral Flex work in the crosses. I'm happy with what I'm using in the crosses,but I'm very interested about those ones. What tension did you used?

Thanks in advance.

Strung at 57/60. What? Crosses being strung HIGHER? Blasphemy, you say? Nope, if you haven't used them, Kirschbaum strings are very soft so there's no reason to soften up the string bed to the point that it loses feel. The spiral flex should take the edge off of the poly so that it feels more like a ridiculously spinny multifilament and not a poly.

And ask iTennis how it works because she's the one who's going to be using it :lol:

:shock: I do want to see a picture of this. I do have reels of both strings, but unfortunately, my MSV is in red :-?

I think it will play just fine. A decent amount of people like spike shark, and I know from experience that spiralflex is just a fabulous syngut.

Looks like you're right! The Yellowjacket Hybrid was good enough to win the women's open singles at the Purdue tournament this weekend!
