I play with POG Mid...and love the open string pattern (14 x 18). Any other frames that are similar in the open pattern and solid weight? Thanks.

I was just looking at the Vortex website. They have a 95 now that is 14x17.

I don't own one and know nothing about them other than the string pattern.

Some guy at the courts plays with a Vortex (I think it's a 116 ). The square string holes are literally 2x the size of those on my APD :shock:

The stringbed was also filled with tennis ball fur :)

Do not limit your options to 14 mains only.

Some frames with 16 mains may be even more open (e.g., Vantage).

Prince's center mains are actually quite dense while the outer mains are farther apart from each other (if POG Mid is anything like my Michael Chang version).

Vantage mains, however, are much more uniform, nearly equidistant from each other for all 16 mains.
