This will be a world of difference on "feel" for you. If enhancing the touch part of your game is a goal, I highly recommend it if you do it the right way. I've done about 50K racquets in my career and strung for players totaling over 40 slam titles so, by all means, feel free to seek any advice I can offer from my experience. My Talk Tennis settings allow for emailing me when you're ready to explore any experimentation. Good luck! It was also great to hear the travel grind doesn't bother you that much bcoz it's a hurdle you'll deal with throughout your career. There's a guy with 17 big titles that really got left alone after Peter Carter's untimely auto accident death. I think he was in Toronto, of all places, when the news broke his coach had died. The account of Rogi's reaction to the news shows how important it is to build from true grief. He believes it made him a stronger person both on and off the court. The championships followed from there.
