i just wanted to comment on all the discussion of synthetic strings.I have tried a lot of different synthetics + have come to the conclusion they all suck,most will play pretty good for maybe 2-3 matches after that forget it.The best i found was tnt2 proplus, still limited life ,luxilon short life hard on arm . I tried a lot of different strings this summer including hybrids with gut +syn.+ came to the conclusion that if you string yourself + you want to use syn. string, then put new string in every week. But if you want to use the ultimate string then use gut,the best gut out there is pacific tough gut it will out last babolat vs anytime.The last set i put in lasted a month + that was uncoated , i played every day + some times twice a day. It played better with age until the end it was getting a little soft but it still didnt break i cut them out! Thats over 60 hours of play + the string played great until the very end. Racket i use babolat pure control mp strung with toughgut 16l at 48 lbs on mains +crosses at 51lbs, + yes i have strung this string up to 72lbs in other rackets with no problem.
