Hi,
I'm about to move from the k90 to the K blade Tour (for various reasons) and wondered if anyone could offer a setup that would provide the touch and spin the k90 offered me?
I have had elbow problems in the past but not since i've put on some muscle - if this matters.
I'm an all court player with a large serve and one handed BH.
This would be my first time using a hybrid setup or specialist strings
Thanks in advance for any help you could offer!

Wait!!!!


Dont do it yet (unless you already have the rackets).

New tours are coming out in a month/old tours will be really cheap in a month.....At least wait until then and then we will help you.

My friend uses spiky shark in his blade tour and he really likes it.

If you want to hybrid it with something soft im sure that would be fine as well

I'm from the UK and they've already dropped significantly here, they're currently $230 for 2!

I've used Babolat Tonic 16 mains with Gosen Sheep Micro 17 crosses at the low end of the tension range with good results from my kbt's

Look for someone on here named iTennis2609 or something like that. She used to have that exact racquet and has a bunch of experience with stringing it. I know this because she's my sister :)

That sounds like a promising setup. If I were more into polys I'd totally try it.

As pertains to the OP, even though I have a lot of experience with the KBT, I've gone for cheap string above good string. The majority of the time I just have a full bed of PSGD which is decent. One thing I can say is that I preferred Red Code over Black Code, and I'm about to try SPPP and Bab PHT.

Vs team 17g/blackcode. Or cheap: forten nylon main/forten sweet crosses.

Medium: blue gear/bbo or forten sweet crosses.

Hi

I tried lots of strings in the 3 KBlade Tours I used for about 6 months and thought that a Hibrid of PHT mains & Excel crosses was sweet, I also thought that KGut was very sweet in this stick...

For me.... Nat Gut only works well if you weight up the KBlade, but that's just my preference...

Great Sticks though and at their current price NOTHING better (IMHO)
