hey all
i just got my APD back from babolat as a replacement for my old APD. They sent it back unstrung, and now ive got to pay for some new strings. On my old APD i had Prince Lightning XX strings at 56 tension, which i hated. Those strings just felt weird for me. What other choices are good baseline-type strings that fit the APD, and arent too soft? I want something i can feel, but not catch any bad vibrations or anything, but still have some good power and control in the strings.

please let me know, as im going to get the strings off of TW soon.

Thanks

I have been playing ridiculously good tennis with my APD strung with Luxilon Original @56lbs.
The catch: it has no "feel" and vibrates... but if you swing big it feels great. But touch shots not only are difficult, even with a dampener it feels like a tuning fork. With other strings it the APD is more comfortable, even ALU... but my results say that I should stick with Original.
It begs you to crush the ball and it pops in the court everytime.
I would give it a try unless you have previous arm problems...
I am hooked on it.
