    Hi all,

    I originally strung my Prince O3 Tour with PSGD Black 16 gauge at 58 pounds, and I need new strings as they have lost tension and gone dead. I talked to the manager at my local sports authority, and he recommended Gamma Zo Power as I wanted a power string. However, I now have a stronger stroke and want a little more control, but I still want good power out of the string. Should I stick with PSGD or do the Gamma Zo Power, or try Gamma Zo Sweet, which is another string I was looking at. If you have any other recommendations, I would love to hear them.

    Thanks,
    -Corsair

    I also want something a little softer on the arm, I am a 13 year old, and dont want to mess up my elbow as it is beginning to get a little sore after 2-3 hours of play

    Then Syn Gut D-flex shouldn't be one of the choice. Try multi-fill, like Prince Primer soft flex...

    multifilaments, but i think soft strings aren't the problem. ur 13, so im guessing ur pretty small, and all synthetic guts are a lot softer then polyesters. and if synthetic guts give u elbow problem. boy i wonder that poly will do to your arm. if u want a power strings and something cheap, get a multifilament.
    some good ones are
    Prince synthetic gut multi
    yonex super pro tour 850
    pro supex maxim touch
    technifibre xr3, tgv, x-1 biphase, or multifeel

    A hybrid I enjoyed in my O3 Tour mids was PSSS and X-1 at around 53 pounds. I have now switched to all X-1 at around 50-52 pounds and get a nice blend of pop and control.

    Forten Sweet is easy on the arm, for a synth.

    If you want even softer with more pop, go with a multi.

    I finally decided on a string!

    I bought the Prince Syn Gut Multifilament 16 gauge to string in my racquet. The racquet will be done on friday, so I will let you know how it goes then! Oh and my elbow doesn't hurt a lot, it's just a very faint pain.

    Thanks!

    I requested it to be strung at 58 pounds. Should that be an okay tension for me? Sorry for all the questions!

    Thanks,
