    Title says all, oney is no problem
    I'm open player with hard strokes and an all round game
    I can easily afford gut and luxilon but want a perfect blend of all roundness
    Between 50/50 I want 60/40 between power and control, 60 being power
    Reply soon tnx

    Boeitmeniks,

    It sounds like a co-poly with above average power would work for you. You might try MSV Focus Hex Soft or Tourna Big Hitter Blue.

    Keep in mind that your stroke style and requirements for feel will play a large roll in what works. Also, once you have wider experience with strings, it will be easier to refine your search based on past experience. For instance, you could say "I like the spin I get with Volkl Cyclone, but I want something a little softer and livelier." This would allow us to recommend a string with a lower stiffness value, which is easier because it gives us a fixed frame of reference. Hope this helps.

    Boeitmeniks,

    Ahh, this helps.

    You might try a soft poly like Polyfibre TCS or Topspin Cyber Flash 17. However, the RPM/N.Gut may be hard to top.

    1-I have used TCS in the 2010 Aerpro. What is the basic difference between TCS and Cyberflash?

    2-And, what is I use Babolat Nvy as aa cross with these strings, what will I get?

    3-What about RPM 18 is it much softer than RPM 16?

    I really love Head RIP Control 17 in the APD. And the 17 is important, it offers much better feel than the 16.

    Did you find RIP a powerful string?Was it durable? What tension did you use?
