View Full Version : Need High Tension Stability Strings!

I've strung with Topspin Cyberflash mains and PSG w/ Duraflex crosses two weeks ago at my local stringer. It was very nice at first, with a really high tension. I could spin shots in any way, kick up my serves with ease, and hit winners if needed. Now, my stringbed is a literal trampoline. I have to use extreme topspin to get my shots in and they always go where I don't want them to be.

But to the point; what's the best strings for tension maintenance? I want to note I have no access to Topspin Cyberflash in my area (I got my old stringjob set when I was in Texas for vacation) nor any Signum Pro strings. My local tennis shop holds a lot of Prince strings; that's where I get my synthetic gut from. They also have several Wilson strings and a few sets of the Luxilon BB's. I honestly don't know what to buy; Luxilon sounds great but too expensive and probably not long lasting at all, both in playability and tension maintenance. I feel like all the Prince strings would last me like 3 days max, and I have no idea about the Wilson strings. I play 5-6 times a day, totaling to about 12-14 hours a week.

Should I just opt to restring my racquet every two weeks? Or can you guys suggest a string or two that can at least hold the tension? I swear, I cannot perform at my absolute best if my shots are rocket launchers. Or spinny rocket launchers, for that matter. I'm surprised that my current strings haven't even shifted yet.

I want to mention I'm a junior. I typically use moderate to heavy spin, and I play a rather defensive game (if my shots don't launch like they do now). I have had no history of tennis elbow or shoulder injuries using poly strings for the past 3 years. I have only broken my strings once, but that was recently when I started to use heavier spin.

None of those are available at the local shop.

They are all available at the un-local shop.

Buy from TW and take them to your local shop for stringing.

Go to TW University, String Performance, String Database and compare the strings that they have tested. POSG/DF holds tension pretty well according to this database. What you want is a main that is similar and available at your pro shop.
