????????????? Compared to the likes of SPPP, Big Ace, and Cyber flash. Thanks ahead of time.
red code is very very stiff and nothing close to cyberflash or any of the strings you mentioned. I dont know how john isners arm stays a=on when he hits the ball with full redcode.
wow, thanks for the info. Im sure as heck not gonna buy a reel now!
I feel it's not that stiff, but at the same time not that soft, more of a crisp feeling poly. Very nice IMO (full bed).
Soft and comfortable are not words I would associate with Redcode. I tried it once it was very stiff. Much stiffer than the others you mention. I thought even more so than big banger original. I would say it "has no give" if that makes sense. I only hit with it once though and I had it at 58 so maybe too tight
I find PRC much harsher and stiffer than Luxilon strings. Its very very uncomfortable and vibrates a lot. Not a nice string...it hurt my arm.
I use a full red code set up on my dunlops, its a stiff string but thats what i like, but if your looking for a softer poly, this isnt it.
I use full redcode at very low tensions, around 44 lbs on a Head Extreme Pro, I like this racket/strings combination a lot. I use to have a loads of problems with tennis elbow, but since I use these strings they are gone. I found that despite the low tension I can control the ball very nicely, my consistency has increased a lot, I hit with quite some topspin specially on the backhand side.
The racket is very forgiving and with the redcode it has a "dead feel" but that's OK with me since I know that if I "feel" the hit, it "feels" in my elbow.
I will try to hybridize it next time with Synthetic gut, the full poly is lasting a lot, its been there for 2 months already and I strung all 4 rackets with it. Normaly syn gut lasts me a week or less.
People have different tastes, I was using kevlar hybrids but they felt too harsh on my elbow.
Compared to the strings you put on there, Red Code is a rock. It's a stiff string that's mainly about control and spin.
