    My stringer has been able to get Pro's Pro strings here in WI. But I don't know from where.

    I've got several racquets with Pro's Pro Poly Nova 1.20 in them. (One had Pro's Pro Tatinium 1.25 in it, but I didn't like the feel so I cut it out.)

    I think titanium is one of their much cheaper offerings. What do you think of the poly nova?

    I agree. Most of the Pro's strings actually stand up as well or better to the 'name brand' counterpart. In fact, some of the Pro's string come out of the same factories and lines that the 'national' strings do.

    im tempted to try out the vantage multi , i saw a friend string it and it leaves lovely crisp "ghost" marks on the string which is always the sign of a great multi :)

    The one time i used it was in the crosses with cyberflash. Played nicely but durability was less than brilliant.

    I like it better than all 3....its got more bite and a little less power. It also out-lasts all 3.

    I sell sets...if you want a reel I can order for you.

    Can get 15, 16, 17...

    If you want a reel please email me via my profile. A 200m reel would be around $85 plus shipping costs from the US and from me to you.

    Hi.
    Supermario343,
    what did you string your k90 with, i just ordered big hitter blue, tecnifibre spinfire, and gamma tnt2 fat core. I will be using the big hitter blue in the mains, in my k90's, but i didnt know if anyone had any ideas about crosses, i am going to try the gamma, tecnifibre, and head rip control in the crosses, but any other ideas would be great, i also have some natural gut that i might try, but i will have to see.

    thanks for any ideas.
