    I was looking for some strings that were like NXT but had more control. I was wanting to tame down my Volkl Powerbridge V1 OS racquets just a bit. Love these racquets but with the NXT, it is a little too powerful for me. Any suggestions for other strings? I heard that K-Gut was a more a control-oriented multi but I'm not for sure. I use the NXT at 55 lbs and haven't tried raising the tension to 60. I just want some different string suggestions if you all have any.

    Increase the tension first..... if you still can't reel in the power then go to a different string...... eliminate your variables before you change string types.....

    Check out Maxim Touch -- a low-powered, very fine-playing multi. And very well priced.

    Make sure you get the original version (see the MT threads).

    Also you could try hybriding it.

    But another string that has more control than NXT I feel is Technifibre Multifeel. Not as soft but more control and a lot cheaper.

    Took the words right out of my mouth... regarding Multifeel, that is. :)
