    Use to own a Pure Drive GT Roddick.

    Great spin.
    Great baseline shotts
    Horrible volleys
    Good serves.

    I think im a little stuck with this racket, since i broke it, im trying to get better
    with my serve and volley...

    I was trying Kfactor 95 6.1 16x18 pattern.

    I found it very difficult at my topsin backhand
    But i felt it very good at the volleys, serves, and planes forehands...
    Which string config. could help my topspin? and give me a little bit of more power?


    Looking forward to try similar models, any ideas or advices?

    I have 2 days before my next tournament... i dont know what to else to do..

    as you know, every racquet plays subtly differently. is the K95 bought of borrowed? my advice would be to spend some time with the new racquet in the next coupla days, do a bit of hitting, to get used to it. over time you'll come to alter your technique to work with the racquet.

    after all, if you want the same amounts of spin, power etc you had with your other racquet, you should just get another one of them.

    i don't have that racquet so i couldn't say. i'd suggest using the Search function with the words K95 and string, in Strings and Stringing.

    Sorry, but did you say that you used to own a PDR GT and broke it? This racquet was released like 1 or 2 months ago. Did you do that on purpose or was that an accident?

    K95 doesnt do spin, change racket! The EX03 Rebel is the one for you, same spec lower flex....
    Also Prince Ozone Pro Tour does spin and similar spec.
    More power from K95, i dont understand, the racket is so siff its hard to keep in. As for string I get loads from my PHT and x1 biphase combo, string low 50's and 17 gauge.
