    What string combinations and tensions worked well in the IG Speed 300?

    Thanks in advance.

    Big Hitter Silver mains with Synthetic gut are pretty good. If you don't break strings very much, then multis like RIP Control and Genesis ThunderBlast are good. Don't put the tension too high though, keep it around 52-55

    I've tried the following crosses with VS Black mains:

    - CoFocus 17
    - Focus Hex 18
    - RPM Blast 17
    - RPM Team 17

    Team was a loser. Didn't last long enough. Hex and Blast were similar with both providing great control but neither lasted as long as CoFocus.

    CoFocus doesn't provide as much control as the others but provides more spin, comfort, and durability.

    In all cases I strung the mains in the mid 50s and the crosses in the low 50s.
