actually 999 bro... i get 1000 haha
okay, my bad, 1001 then
ill post pics of my string jobs this weekend, it looks sick nasty, check sig for what it is
Where did you get that dampener?
you could buy that dampener at many tennis shops as well as big sports shops. it's pete sampas's "O" dampener
exactly what he said lol ...easy to find bro
i call this the ninja turtle
^ obviously 2 different colors of prince twisted poly
Hahaha that looks great
not a bad string for the price.. if i bought string i would consider it
Makes me feel dizzy, those new prince polys... it's like stringing with many different pieces of strings
LOOOK OUT FOR SHREDDDDERRRRR!!!!!!
Idk if anyone has done this yet on a k88...but its blue gear and prince synthetic 55/57 lbs
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.
sorry if I asked you to many q's. Goodnight everybody. Lollllllllllllllllllll
The Prince Twisted looks NICE
Babolat Addiction Mains 55/ Big Hitter Crosses 53 w/stringsavers
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
How do you find Isospeed Baseline compared to pro redcode?
Mario...have you tried Gamma Zo Tour yet on the kps88?
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.
Not yet bro., I will eventually though...I think i got the rough version too if that matters or not lol
hey mario, maybe some pics of the isospeed job?
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
Will do when I have some more time bro
aight thanks man
haha yea its the Rough I image you will like it...I hope.
Mario, can you compare Cyber Flash 16 to IsoSpeed Baseline Control?
last question : how many hours do you get from them?
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.
Here are some of mine, pics are long overdue for me
thats a good setup
I do prefer the playability of the isospeed..but thats just my opinion lol
Yeah it is....i really like it. Def. will try it in my k88 this week
I was thinking it was a luxilon dampener.
Babolat Addiction/Cyberflash crosses...56/54lbs w/ stringsavers including Sampras O dampener. Weighed in at 13.2oz
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!
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 use 16g and i have no tried nxt or nxt tour from wilson lol. I will get a set soon enough and try it though. I hear good things about it as well
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.
you know what would be sick? Glow-in-the-dark strings :shock:
