    Supermario,

    That's nice pic. Do you prefer the wilson pro overgrip or the tourna grip?/ Did you like the prince twisted? Did you try the poly exp 16/17 gauge?

    So many Q's where do I start lol...I prefer tourna tac and thats what i use. The prince twisted was ok, nothing special imo. Just liked the cool colors it comes in and no i havent tried the exp. Tomorrow i am stringing up babolat addiction on my mains with big hitter crosses at 55/53.

    the prince twisted is average. better than big hitter. i have a reel of it and it feels pretty plastic the more i hit with it

    Hey Supermario!
    How do you find Isospeed Baseline compared to pro redcode?

    Feels a lot softer....but i get about equal amounts of spin and control. I may get more pop out of the isospeed as well.

    it's cheaper than redcode so when i run out of my reel, i'm gonna buy a reel of isospeed. What tension do you use?
    Are they durable than redcode? Do they hold tension well?

    i string mine at 53 lbs. They seem to be durable, hvnt broken on me yet so. Tension always seems to be there...i usually end up cutting them out bc they go dead faster than snapping on me

    I almost find baseline control to make the ball "jump" off your strings. Like its alive in a way lol...my friend noticed this too as i strung it up in his racquet

    Hmmm i would say anywhere from 10-20 hours...i am a hard flat hitter so maybe that affects it more, im not sure. But you can always still keep it in there longer than that until it breaks :)

    So would you say you'd prefer the IsoSpeed over CF when it comes to playability? I don't care much for durability since I have yet to break a string, nor do I care about price.

    Supermario,

    You played with luxilon big banger at 58, How the bb compare with isospeed string? You string pretty low I though you play with hevay top-spin insted of flat strokes. I am lucky that my friend has a couple k88 as well, so I can try diff string/tension.

    Yes i did have a full big banger job at 58. I liked that setup too. I am a flat ball hitter, not a heavy topspin although i try to mix it up from time to time lol. I like the k88 more and more each time i play with it. Good luck with your new foundings!

    Supermario,

    Do you use the Babolat Addiction gauge 16 or 17? /What do you think about NXT Tour from wilson? Somebody told me that nxt tour plays pretty nice. I will probably try next.

    I think is a mult/poly, they say that plays very nice in the k88. Anyway, Which big hitter do you use? It's a very cheap string, However my friend mentioned that is a pretty good string for the price close to the luxilon just little bite softer

    I love a multi./poly job in the k88 or k90. Works great for me....I use the grey big hitter in 16g. Definitely worth the reel of it and yes, it has been mentioned it has characteristics of luxilon.
