I have a YT prestige MP so I was just wondering what I would string this at. I have a hard somewhat flat forehand, one handed backhand and a big serve. I also have an extra pack of gosen micro and BHBR laying around.....so I think I'm going to hybrid BC with gosen micro.

I love trying new strings and I'm really hoping BC lives up to all its hype, unlike some others that have fallen short *cough* bhbr *cough*

Thanks!

Ryusken(or however you spell it) strings it at 60. Personally, I think any poly in a Prestige(mid/MP/Pro) shouldn't go past 58. I personally string my Mids at 58. 57 Is a nice tension to start.

I have a similar playing style like you.
Anyways, I string polys at 58 lbs, and that includes the ultra stiff Babolat Revenge! For something soft like Black Code, 58 could probably hit the spot.

It's all just totally subjective and personal, but see my sig.

I, too, am shortly to be trying out this string and seeing if it's to my tastes... BTW, I have similar feelings re BHBR.

because BC is a softer poly i recommend you string somewhere around 57#. BC has been one of my favorites.

I am a dissident here. Some experts say stringing in the 40s is better. I am about to try it out.:)

I was going to recommend around the 58 mark for you. With the changes in my game, I'll be lowering my tension to around 57 to start in order to get some free power but while I was playing a primarily flat hitting game, 60 was great.

After playing with this string for about 3 hours yesterday, I have to say that it is amazing! Love the feel, control and spin potential of this string!
