    Alright, I posted before, but no help. I have alu power, ashaway mono gut and prince synthetic gut, what do you guys think the best combo or just one of the strings, would be on a surge x? Thanks!

    Thats a stiff frame for all poly...IMO. If you are a string breaker I would go with the ALU in the mains and either of your synthetics in the crosses. Otherwise I'd stay with a softer string.

    First:What do you expect from your new strings?
    Control I would go poly 17-syn gut 17@65
    Playability mono gut 17-syn gut 18 @70+
    Durability mix gauges until you feel confortable (play vs $)

    I am 5.5 and use a lot of topspin. Hope this helps.

    I just want a string where I can swing as hard as I want and still have control and the ball staying in.

    The Surge X is a powerful racquet and with your control request I do not think they mix.
    The easiest thing is a racquet change (control oriented) if you want to continue with the Surge X try racquet customization in the TW site to get info about control.
