Our answers to your questions will depend on: your age, your playing style (baseline, all court, etc.), your racquet, your regular string and tension, and what you're looking for in Tour Bite.

Thanks.

yep. Those are all important factors you should consider when choosing a string. One factor that was left off is hair color though

Alright, im 14 in high school, number 1 on tennis team,advanced level, agressive baseliner, looking for pretty much what tour bite says it has but i wondered if it was true. Also is revolution better control wise? And what gauge is best and at what tension. By the way if u really want to kno my hair is brown.

The tour bite is a perfect string for aggressive baseliners looking to get tons of spin and power. You won find a string out there that has as much spin potential as the tour bite. In terms of tension, I would reccommend anywhere from 50 to 55lbs range, but once again this is player dependent and you need figure it out on your own. And yes, revolution offers good control.....

I'd say your best bet is gauge 17 in a full bed

yes get it. u will not regrete getting this string. it has excellent touch pop and feel from the baseline to the net. i am partially sponsored by solinco and personally prefer the solinco revolution. 17 g is best at 58 pounds. i would use it in a hybrid. little more expensive but worth the deal. prob. i would put revolution with babolat excel or wilson sensation. definately mix and match a poly with a syn. gut.

I prefer the hybrid with vanquish it adds more feel but also maybe a little less power and spin, but technique makes up for that haha

yes, you should definitely get this string...both versions are good...hybrid version has a little more comfort, but even in full bed form, it's not too bad on your joints...i'm surprised how long it's lasting (in full bed) -- so far i have about 8+ hours (17 gauge in an 18x20 frame) and it's still playing great! i'm definitely sold on it...

How long does the 17 gauge of tour bite last for? I was guessing 2 weeks?

i've been playing with the KBT (so 93 sq. in head) lately -- 54 lbs, full bed 17 gauge tour bite -- that feels pretty firm...i probably could go lower if i wanted to...tension maintenance seems to be pretty good too...if i hybrid it, i'll go 54/56 -- the vanquish feels good in the crosses, but it does have a tendancy to fray more so than when i used gosen og sheep in the crosses...

i've also been trying out the 18 gauge version of tour bite...i think it plays pretty similarly to the 17 -- make a little extra "ummph" to it...i'm very happy with this string...
