Geez, how about showing some appreciation and respect? This is TW's free board that you're using BTW. And what do you mean "after everyone else"? I just checked the other two large tennis e-tailer web sites and they don't have Signum, either. Who else other than the big auction site has them in stock?

you really do need to relax and cut out the caffeine. don't take things so literally. also, thanks for clarifying that the TW board is free - i had NO idea.

BTW, google for the strings and you'll find a couple mid sized places that have them.

Thanks TW for being responsive to the readers requests. I appreciate all your hard work and also for allowing the board here to operate as well as it does. NO WHERE else is there a forum as complete and trouble-free as you have here. Again, thank you.

By 17L are you referring to the 18 gauge most other sources refer it to as?

17L is different from an 18 gauge string.

Thank you


Now if someone will tell me if the 17L TW refer it to as, is the same as the 18 gauge other sites refer it to as.

Actually, I think it may be the 18g because they have three gauges, and I'm not sure what else it could be unless Signum introduced another gauge of Plasma.

BreakPoint

The gauge designations are pretty arbitrary anyway as every manufacturer will tag strings differently even for similar diameters. To be sure, you should be going by the actual diameter in mm anyway. The thinnest Signum Pro Plasma is 1.19mm, so you can call it whatever you want, e.g., 17L, 18g, etc. Does it really matter if it's called 17L or 18g? No. What matters is how thick the diameter is in mm. TW just happens to refer to it as 17L.

Actually the thinnest Poly Plasma is 1.18mm and the thinnest Poly Megaforce is 1.19mm. Breakpoint is 100% correct in that it is more important to pay attention to the mm rather than the 17L or 18#'s. i.e. Alpha Gut 2000 produces a 1.20mm string they label as 18ga. It can be arbitrary and confusing so just follow the mm to help make sense of it all.

Jerry Seinfeld,

I'm interested in your views on how the extra competition from Tennis Warehouse stocking signum strings may affect your business.

Perhaps lowering your prices on signum strings by a few dollars could attract customers from TW.

Just a thought.

Jerry,
Check this pic of the actual package of Poly Plasma: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACSIGNUM-SIGPPP17L.html
It says 1.19mm right on the package. TW lists it as 1.18mm in its product description but I assume this was a typo.

too bad they are not stocking their multifilament synthetic, Pro Fiber High Tech EXP...one of the best if not the best multi I've tried.

The US is just taking advantage of Signum Pro's cheap strings.
Here I could get all those Signum Pro string much cheaper.

1 thing I never understood:

Luxilon Big Banger strings are made in Belgium Europe, but they are much cheaper in the US, figure me that one out!

Why doesn't TW stock Pro Fiber High Tech EXP also? When will TW have it?

It is maybe only specific problem of country where is average salary 720$ per month (that's mean, then majority have much less and a lucky minority including me have more). But it is OT.:(

Equinox - - Pls. send me a private message and I'll be happy to discuss with you. As for pricing, minimum levels are set by the manufacturer and are to be followed by distributors. TW and others are following the minimum pricing guidelines.

Breakpoint - - I am unable to explain the image. The Poly Plasma gauge is 1.18mm. Every package I have seen, except for the TW image, says 1.18mm. You can check the Signum Pro home page site which also lists it at 1.18mm. http://www.signumpro.de/compound_strings.html I suspect it is simply an error in labeling the package, unless the gauge has been increased by .01mm, which seems unlikely.

Chris, as stated above, I was also hoping you would be stocking the multi Pro fiber High-Tec exp. Is that in the pipeline?

TW Staff

We were not aware of the interest in the Pro Fibre High-Tec string, but will add it to our next order.

Not sure what the deal is with the 1.19mm string package as all the info we have states the 17L is 1.18mm. The 17L reels are correctly labeled as 1.18mm. I'll check on some of the other packages of the individual sets to see if that was just a rouge labeling error.

As far as designating gauge, we went by the info listed in our learning center - which is consistent with the USRSA:
