    If there was ONLY one thread and this was it... I'd be happy.

    Thank you very much gentleman for the time, effort and attention. Great thread!!!

    BBO works great in soft, open pattern frames for me. It is more resilient than alu and will last twice as long, in terms of feel. Unlike alu, I don't like it in a hybrid, full bed feels best.

    No it's Head, as you can clearly see from the golden "H" at the top of the handle.

    Retail Head Leather Tour replacement grip from my shop's stock.

    Very informative thread!!!!

    One question, when a player uses full set of a poly or Any other string, do you guys string it two piece if the mains end at the throat or do you guys use ATW patterns?

    Do you not use the specific Wilson Team ATW pattern then?

    Do you have the figures of how many restrings each play had? Or an average of restrings overall?

    Just a couple of us had previous high level tournament experience (outside me, that is), but all the team seemed to know Liam's ATW..so, i decided to go with it.

    @ewberner: "average" means nothing, since most of the top players restring larger numbers of frames regularly (obviously) and low-ranked less or less frequently; nevertheless, "average" was eight for men an six for women.

    Awesome thread. Couldn't help myself, had to give this a good long stare.

    Full Poly : 82
    Gut / Poly : 22
    Poly / Gut : 20
    Full Nylon : 5
    Full Gut : 2
    Poly / Nylon : 1
    Nylon / Poly : 1

    Doubles Players Using Gut / Poly:
    1. B. Bryan
    2. M. Bryan
    3. Mahesh Bhupati
    4. Max Mirnyi
    5. Daniel Nestor
    6. Leander Paes
    7. Qureshi
    8. Radek Stepanek

    What The Other Doubles Players Are Using :
    1. Granollers (LXN Orig)
    2. Marc Lopez (LXN Orig)
    3. Lindstedt (ALU/Gut)
    4. Lisa Raymond (VS Team)
    5. Paola Suarez (Prince Syngut)
    6. Marcin Matkowski (Poly/Gut)
    7. Jonathan Marray (Poly/Gut)

    Noteworthy : Full poly by a wide margin. Lux Original still has a lot of fans. Gut/Poly only slightly edges out Poly/Gut, thought that would be a no contest even with singles players. Five players using full nylon, and only two using full gut. The current top 6 ATP doubles points leaders all use Gut / Poly. Paolo Suarez is still playing Syngut.

    Old news... he beat Federer a few years ago with the same tension, also in Rome.

    I like low tension, especially when doing a very long sparring session. i string mine at 18 to 20 kg.
