Hi everyone, I rarely visit these boards since is my daughter, not I,the one who plays tennis. Time for new strings. She's been happily using The original BB for the past few years in her Yonex Ti 1700. She very much prefers stiff string in this throat-flexibile racquet. Looking around I see that the competition is catching up with Luxilon. So is a must to try the Kirschbaum Competition and TT. Is cheaper and I'll feel better too if she'll like them. But looking through the boards(including old one), I could find no refference to the BB original.All the talk is about ALU and TiMo. Are these ones that much better compared to the Original ? I am more interested in ALU, in how it compares to BB Original. And I have a question about the Kirschbaum TT. Since is a soft poly, should it be strung a little higher than Luxilon BB, let's say two pounds ? Any advice will be appreciated. Sorry for the long post.
