    Power: Radical;
    Precision: Speed.
    Mind that it's easier to add power to a low powered frame than the other way around. That is, without using co-polys at high tension... your joints will thank you.

    Why not talking about it once you tried the Speed? Because it will depends of what you need from the frame, it will need some testing.

    Hi berdych31,

    In addition to the racquet, string preference depends on your stroke style and preference for feel. In the absence of knowing that, here is some general advice. When you first get a new racquet, you should take a "trial and error" approach with string and tension in order to zero-in on the right setup. If you typically use polys, I would recommend Volkl Cyclone 16 at mid tension. Use this as a baseline, and revise from there (e.g., select a stiffer/softer string and/or higher/lower tension based on your on-court experience). If you are not a "poly player", than select a string with great all-around playability like Wilson Sensation and do the same. The idea is to put yourself into the equation until you develop a sense of what type of string feels best.

    Hope this helps, Jon
