    What are you looking for?

    Do you want a little extra pop or more control?

    BTW, how do you like the Gold? I have a Silver 99 and have always thought it to be a solid frame.

    I like a spin set up . Full Poly but with power.
    My FAV strings so far
    Big hitter Blue rough
    Solinco tour bite soft.
    Pacific x force

    Wondering if there is anything I am missing.
    Have tried most of the black colour strings such as black widow,
    BHBR7
    just done suit my game . Less power for me.

    The Gold so far good racquet. Great for power. Hitting some wicked topspin. Not so much for my two hander . Cant seem to hit through the ball. And slicing so far is average but that could be because of my technique.

    How is your Silver and what type of game do you have?

    I have a Gold 99, and I've tried it with BHBR 17 fullbed and in hybrid with syn gut (poly mains). Think I like the hybrid better, but I'm not sure whether I should stick with the 17 gauge or change to BHBR 16. Does anyone have an opinion on this? String pattern is 16x19, and I have no problem generating spin with this racket.

    I play mainly from the baseline and also uses a two-handed backhand. I have no problem hitting through the ball, especially after I customized it. Added 10 g total at 3 and 9 o'clock and 12 g at the handle (+5g butcap and overgrip), increasing the overall weight and making it a bit less head light. This is just what I found good for my game.

    I'm curious as well. The Gold94 and I have never gotten along too well, which is a shame. But it could be the strings' fault.

    Gotta go with full bed natural gut in the gold 94. Classic feeling frame with low power needs natural gut to get the most out of it.

    I played with the X-Red 94 which was the precursor to the Gold 94 and it played really well with hybrids of poly mains and muliti crosses in thinner gauges at lower tensions. The Gold 94 is a little firmer and has a little more power than the X-Red 94. I also played with both the Red and Gold 99s.
