    The strings don't come pre-symboled. You have to use a stencil to paint the symbol on after the stringjob is finished.

    :D yea, I thought I'd put it in the "corner" as a big L in the middle might get people thinking I'm a learner :p
    that racquet has been sitting around unstrung for about.. maybe 8-10 years :s woo!

    They play pretty stiff. I bought a reel in 17g just this past week and strung it up in my PS 6.0 95 @ 56 lbs. Caused my elbow to hurt. I went down to 50 lbs and it works great. Good playability and I can hold on to the ball a little bit longer; since I strung it low I get a little added pop. In all, a nice durable string. If you hybrid, do it with a rather soft string, something like a multi would work best IMO.

    I thought I would post this here before I post in a thread I am making for holiday themed stenciling.

    String is Gamma TNT2 16g Mains 50#s, and Gamma ZoTour 17g Crosses 52#s. On a Wilson PS Tour 90 that has been played to ****. (the knot marks are not mine, I got this one used)

    I'm afraid I haven't yet had the pleasure.
    (it's a vantage stick btw, www.vantagetennis.com)

    I've only got first impressions that I can offer,
    it's has a large sweetspot for a 90in. (probably helped by the v.open stringbed)
    I've noticed quite high power, this may change when hitting properly.
    It has nice feel and comfort - again, I need to have a proper hit.
    feels very stable. it's about 11.8-12oz, 9pts HL and feels v. "whippy"
    I think I'm gonna enjoy playing with this.
