    I know Gilles Simon used to play Head Intellitour, but now he seems to be playing some kind of white or silver string:

    Does anybody have any idea what he has switched to?

    From the rafa match sure looked like gut-poly any new info?
    frenchy hits a mean ball,Gut, if he can control it has way more pop then the rip control does.Not as soft though.Gilles could hit the gym put on 10/15 lbs more muscle could be a threat in any match.Had rafa punching his strings today

    Are you serious? Did you ever thought about the kind of tennis Gilles plays?
    More weight would be a handicap for him...

    White string was in the cross, so I'm assuming poly/gut or poly/multi

    I was at the stringers room at ATP Hamburg two day ago an they strung his racket with a set of Intellitour that had a different color scheme than the usual one - more like black and silver. I think this is the string you all saw.

    Where have you ever seen Intellitour in other color than Natural/yellowish? Would love to try it only to chage the color of my string.
