    I get a decent amount now (I can hold a rally fairly comfortably, I think), but I would like just a bit more. What strings and what tension should I get for my Aero Pro Drive Cortex?

    polyester strings generate more spin than.. say a synthetic gut additionally a lower tension will provide more topspin in theory as the string can move more however in turn it will result in greater power which you may struggle to control thus causing you to hit less agressively and generate less spin however my advice is go for a poly hybrid at first at a mid tension although i dont know what you currently use so its hard to reccomend

    Right now I'm using Babolat Pro Hurricane 17 gauge at 59 pounds. At the time, I didn't know what else to get.

    Any recommendations for stuff that's sold on TW?

    1. MSV focus hex 1.18mm or 1.10mm (hex profile gets worn out after ~2 hours of hitting)
    2. Signum Pro Poly Plasma 1.18mm
    3. Cyberflash 1.25mm.

    I used MSV 1.18 in my APD with a soft multi 1.30 cross both at 58lbs. I would never break the cross and the MSV would snap after 4-6 hrs of play. When i did a full job of MSV at 58lbs it would againn only last me 4-6 hours. I prefer the full job, but was not to pleased with the durability.
