    I demoed a yonex rdti 80 with gamma tnt and it felt great. Then I bought the racket and had it strung with a full bed of timo 18 and the balls were flying on me. I couldn't keep one ball in. Is timo that powerful compared to tnt? I was thinking the full bed of timo would give me more control. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    If you string timo really tight it can have alot of pop like 63 and over. 18 gauge is very can get plenty of spin on a ball with proper stroke. It is either you're technique or you are still adjusting to the new strings. I usually use this string or Timo 117 17Ga. and there is almost no way a ball can fly out on you unless you strike the ball wrong.

    Not the best racquet to put TiMO 18 in - this string is better in tighter string patterns such as BLX Pro Tour, 6.1 95, Radical MP etc. BB Alu Power or M2 Pro would of been a better choice.

    Naturally with a thinner string, you are going to get a lot of power unless it is strung really tight as mentioned in the above post. I wouldn't go any lighter than 17 guage thats for sure.

    Yeah i agree... thats a great string for 18x20 racquets. i played around with it for a while before and it felt great - just broke a little too quickly
