View Full Version : Perfect Strings? (Head Ti. Radical)

09-12-2006, 08:38 PM
Hi guys,
I am about 3.0-3.5 and have a few raquets currently.
I have had the Prince Vortex Lite for a few years and also picked up Head trisys Radical 260. As well as buying a new Flexpoint Fire racquet.
Last few weeks i bought 2 Ti. Radicals from 93 era and have a question.
My issue is i keep hitting the ball out quite often.
how can i minimize that with strings. I play mostly baseline game with a powerful backhand and average forehand.
What would be a good string for the Ti. Radical for someone hitting the ball too long? what type or sting? tension? thickness?

Please help, thanks...

It has been my experience that you should never string below mid tension on an OS. 16 works great in the dense string pattern if you're a flat to moderate top player, 17 to 18 if you're a top to moderate flat hitter. I prefer Gamma 16's or Lux ALU 16's.

Hey Headstrong, how do you like your FXP Fire?
I personally am not comfortable with the head size, but also the head shape and stringing pattern 18/20. It's a great raquet, and a great looking raquet but I think it's also too light for my liking. Have you done any additions to yours like lead tape etc..?

It's a Great raquet that gives pop and lots of control but my style is different.

I like it fine, the head is fine, but i get some weird noise from the grip area.
I use Ti. Radical and FXP Fire they are fine together. I also have the Trisys Radical it also complements the racquet well.
