    still playing the prestige right now. however, transitioning to the kps88 currently. the more i hit with it, and get used to the frame, the more confident i am getting with it

    Nice another AS user. I've been wanting to try Luxilon string, but they are just a bit too expensive for me. I can get Focus Hex, CF, BA for 8 bucks and I get 2 stringjobs because I hybrid.

    hey, supermario, quick question. I'm getting a kblade tour after demoing many rackets, and I'm weighting it up to about 12.5 oz. with lead tape @ 3 and 9 o'clock. I found a set of sppp in my bag from several months ago, and I'm hoping it will play well in a stiff frame sort of like the kps88. Opinions?

    plays very well, good amount of power but not too much (aided by the blue), and still feels crisp due to the cyberflash.. but not harsh

    I had tried cyber blue with gut before this, and cyber blue is way too soft for that setup, i think the blue, given its more powerful too, is not really suited unless its coupled with a stiffer string.. but i like the feeling of a crisp string bed

    if youre interested, i have a couple extra new reels of both, i live in melbourne, so shipping would be cheap aimr75@hotmail.com

    Ive hit with this setup for 3 sessions, and no signs of arm issues.. i thought there would have been some issues as ive had arm problems in the past, but none thus far.

    I have been reluctant to move to a full poly setup due to my past arm issues, but have slowly graduated to it, was hitting full multi at one stage, then multi/poly hybrid, now full poly

    will see a bit longer term if there are any issues, if i do notice any pain, might go back to a multi/poly setup

    Let me think on that.....

    .....ok, I've thought about it and I've decided to keep it. :)

    I love my MW200G. Such a fantastic frame. I just wish I had more than one myself.

    Any of you guys tried Luxilon BBA? I made and order for some PPFO, but they were out of stock and the guy at TW told to try this string. Any of you tried it in a hybrid?

    Will do mate. There are a few around with owners willing to sell, but they're asking for silly money.

    Thanks man...i just use the regular ink you can get off TW... and went right across the frame with it. The Babolat logo is the easiest to stencil :)

    Which of these setups did you like best in your MGPMP in terms of power and spin, and whats the durability like on big ace 1.17 mm??. I'm assuming the leather is the only modification you made to the stick.

    Thanks
