    What was Goran's choice of strings on his PC600s back in the day?
    Does anyone know? I am thinking gut, but was it full bed gut?

    Everyone, also please share your PC600 favorite strings and set ups as well, please.
    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure he used full VS strung pretty tight. I actually have one of his frames in the LM pj. The custom molded handle is perfect for volleying. I can tell by the racquet performs around the net and with serves that it is still is weight and balance. Too bad I don't have anything to measure the specs. It is really HL though but pretty heavy.

    Can I ask how exactly do you know that the LM pj frame you have, belonged to Ivanisevic? Is it regular length?

    I obviously don't know for a fact but the person I bought it from said that the person he bought it from said it was. It is standard length. I could be wrong but the way it plays I would make a educated guess that it was his...

    I thought Ivanisevic played with XL version of PC600s.

    Can anyone confirm this? I heard a commentator or perhaps Goran himself say that his W title was won at a tension in the low forties due to his shoulder issues at that stage and the long tournament...
