    Technifibre X1 Biphase 17 seems to be a "fan favorite" these days. I've been playing with it strung at 57lbs for about a week now and have been happy with it for the most part. As I mentioned in my previous thread, I think I need to increase the tension to up around 62 or 63 lbs. At 57 it's a little springy.

    im using psgd 17 at 58 and i think i have to increase the tension 2 pounds more cause im not getting much control out of it, but the feel is good and gives great spin.

    and doesnt hurt mi arm at all.

    HI Ronalditop, where in Lima are you? I am right know here in Breña for a bussiness meeting.

    NGR2 in 17 is really good, doesnt last long though.
