    I'm currently demoing a Tecnifibre TFight 325 VO2 Max ordered with the poly string. The string is black and looks like 17g, but they are no markings on it whatsoever. What string is used and at what tension.

    Thanks!

    If it's strung by TW and a poly I would be sure it would be Blackcode. However, some deuce-bags (punny) restring TW demos with their own preference because they are selfish jerks.

    I thought TW used synthetic gut at two or three pounds above mid range on the demos.

    Murrayalmagrofan,

    We use Black Code in our Tecnifibre Poly demos when available, and that should be what is in your racquet. We try to match the string to the same brand of the racquets when we send out demos.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Aaron,

    Thanks for confirming. Does TW string the racquet at mid-tension (i.e. 55lbs)?
