That makes sense, with it being such a light stick, tight pattern - so low powered, full poly would be tough.

Did you see any customization? I dont' and haven't but it's such a light stick. I have added 9g, and it feels much better.

He just won the Honolulu challenger too. Good win. I'm rooting for him and some new blood to rise up (Sock, etc).

Didn't see any lead. Probably was some. Most players like it concealed under the bumper and/or grip.

Is he still using the PST Ltd? Tough to tell the version in that pic.

Tell that to Safin who strings the classic mid with 16g poly at 30kg!

That's true. These guys are bigger too.

My 8-10 hrs a week of tennis can't handle full poly in a tight set up. Maybe in a mid-plus 95-98si head with a 16 by 18/19 (open) pattern.

Saw Harrison at the Honolulu Challenger. He's using the pure storm gt. According to my buddy who was the event stringer Harrison was using a full poly setup at 58lbs which was a bit higher than the other guys (avg low 50's)

A close friend of mine said Harrison played an exo in his home town of Shreveport LA. At the event, he auctioned off one of his racquets for charity.

The kid has game, I hope he makes it.

But 8-10 hours a week is much tennis for a non-pro dude! :shock:

Interesting, looks like the PSL back in December in Atlanta (in thread below).

I see 8 strings in the throat of his stick (18 mains).

cool..I figured he may use the tour version since the weight and stability seems to be catching on with some younger pros. If he is just using the regular version. I would imagine he leaded it up a little.

Not really... I would play at least 15 hours in high school and I play around 20 in college. :neutral:

Believe he was using the tour model. During a practice session, I walked up and took a look at his frames--had a layers of lead at the 3/9 area. He's a fairly clean ball striker and his balls have a lotta "pop" on them (hitting with Robert Kendrick).

Interestingly, stopped by to chat with my stringer buddy and took a quick look at the players racquets--seems most of the challenger guys are using Wilson (6.1) and Babolat (PD, AD and PSGT), he was stringing up to 30 racquets a day during the early rounds of the event (whew!)...

seems odd that he'd stop using the PSL since its such a better stick than the PST..

No it's not, the PSTGT is better.

But seriously, you can't argue which racquet is better for anyone but yourself.

At the Aussie open wild card he was using PRO Hurricane Tour and VS Gut

I have strung for him in 5 different events the past 2 years. Same set up with strings. A lot of silicone in the handle. Some lead under the guard.
