    He Switched to the Rebel this past year. I'm not sure what he's using over the summer, but he used Enduro Pro in the mains and Live Wire in the crosses this past season.

    Our team has been using lots of Gamma strings, Durablast, zo (series), professional, etc. I'll update when I get back to school.

    University of Washington

    Edit: This was for the M team, W team changes more often, and they sometimes play niche strings like cyber power. I don't know/think they used it this last year, though. didn't really string, due to graduating.

    I don't play for Vandy but I am very close with the players and coaches. They don't have an equipment manager or anything. But all of them use alu power which they( the players) have to pay for or tecnifibre red code with nrg in the crosses...at lsu do the players have t help pay for the luxilon...also i know at vandy each player gets 4 rackets and 10 pairs of shoes each year...what do they get at LSU

    At LSU the players pay for none of the their gear out of pocket. Rackets, shoes, string ect. is all taken care of by the school.

    yeah vandy doesnt make their players pay for anything except if they want luxilon they have to pay 70 bucks which is the difference between luvilon and red code...at the wholesale price

    Are the Gamma Strings the Player's 1st choice? Coaches Choice? Best Value? We get our guys whatever the heck they want, that's why we have so many different Polys.
