What are you using now? And I don't mean ink! Nothing lasts once you hit!

Babolat stencil is the only one that lasts, 'cause you don't hit there! :)

Wilson Ultra is discontinued and replaced by Extreme.
That being said, no poly hybrid will give you more power.
If you are not a string breaker, you could try Head PPS or Prince Lightning XX or move to a multi.
What's your budget like?

You could try Tourna Big Hitter Blue or Signum Pro Poly Plasma oin the mains and stay with the Ultra on the crosses.
String the mains 5lbs lower.
I'm sure others will have different suggestions!
Still be less power, tho.

You may have the wrong racquet if you are looking for power!

i love the feel of the racket though its so solid all round but finding i want a little more power and dont want to change rackets so i looked into changing string type.

is this a lost cause???

Maybe. It's a control racquet.
To get more power, you'll have to sacrifice durability.

If budget is not an issue... Go Natural Gut!

There are many threads about this.
Babolat VS is the best...and most expensive!
Babolat Tonic and Pacific are a bit cheaper.
Just about Anything will be better than old Ultra!

Try Forten Sweet 16. It plays well and is CHEAP!
Or Gosen OG Sheep Micro.
Buy a reel and get your own stencil! LOL:)
