Is Jack Sock still using an AeroStorm, with the new 2013 AeroPro paint job or has he switched to something else? Is Babolat coming out with a replacement for the AeroStorm line? Thoughts?

I just strung yesterday, 4 aero storm tours with the new aero pro drive paint job. So could be that he is using the same frame.

Does he use lux Alu, strung in the 40lbs?

he tried out the alu power when we recommended it to him in cincinnatti. He was stringing at 38. Not sure if he is still using it, although from the photo,, it does seem to be alu power. The tension fluctuates between 38-40.

No. I'm currently stringing at a futures in Florida. I strung for him last year at the same futures, Delray ATP, and at Cincy with Priority One.

wow..
Now I want to try 38 lbs.
Wonder how he contains the power and controls the ball so well?

I thought he was using just the regular Aero Storm?

You can generate more spin at lower tension when using poly.

You can generate more spin at lower tension when using poly.+1. And (the equivalent of) millions of dollars of instruction and practice time. People who've never been to an ATP event and stood at the practice courts can't imagine the work they put on their shots.

I just checked my strings on my 90s and they're 33.7 pounds..
My balls go flying.
I have no idea how the tension fell from 51 to 33.7 in less than two weeks..

Because it's poly, and lux at that. Poly has terrible tension maintenance, and Lux is one of the worst.

Supposedly not Lux G4 though.

Yes, but his signature states that he uses ALU. Furthermore, other than 4G none of Luxilon's strings offerings have good tension maintenance.
