    The second one is Bab Vs Touch 16 on mains, and PSGD 17 on crosses.

    At first i thought it was 2 different strings, then i saw where the stencil ink doesn't quite cover the cross strings right up to the gromment. It's defo a wierd one.

    Nice AS's there. I've just recently met MSV (8 months) and yeah, great strings and pretty cheap too. I wish TW would get reel.

    I'm really enjoying it so far. Swingweight is perfect for me, I can actually use it over 5 sets and not get tired from swinging it. I've used to use a PS Tour 90 and i love it, but after a set or 2 my arm and shoulder were exhausted (haha, i've just seen your sig, i'm guessing swingweight isn't an issue for you with that shovel). I'm a lot more consistent with it too, so solid on groundies. It's defo worth a demo.

    ill pry check it out a lil more than the 10 min session i got with it. yea man i grew up hittin the 80s lumber and heavy stuff. ive never had a frame make me "tired" before but i think its all what you were raised on to be honest. i like the specs, but would have to get the stupid sig. off of it as i detest djoko

    Yeah i wasn't too crazy about the sig either, i think it's a crap place to have it as well. I played 3 sets today with the Pro and arm was all good, just those Wilson 2x4's that are a little too much for me, i can play with them for a match no problem but if i tried to play like 3 sets a day for 3-4 days in succession i'd be gone.

    Not played with it enough to give a detailed opinion as yet. First impressions are favourable though.

    In comparison to the Focus Hex i had in there previously, the Hyperion feels softer, but not mushy like SPPP does. It definately has more power than the Hex and gives a more consistent response too. As you'd expect of any full poly job, spin was available as much as you wanted to put on the ball.

    Also, it doesn't seem to need a break-in period at all and tension maintenance seems to be very good. Minimal string movement as you'd expect.

    Will prob post a more detailed review when I've played with it some more.

    Supermario, how would you compare the Isospeed Baseline to say Pro Supex Big Ace if you've tried the latter before. I've been using Big Ace 18, but thinking maybe Baseline could be a cheaper alternative.

    both big aces and iso speed are pretty soft but good poly.

    when it comes down to it to me big aces have more playability and held tension better than iso speeds.
    in order for me to get the right amount of feel power and spin i would have to string at a high tension.

    Both strings are on the softer side yes....for me, Id pick big ace anyday bc of durability and playability. Isospeed loses its characteristics fast when I play with it. Ive strung it from 50-55 lbs and sometimes the ball just flies off the strings like a trampoline. Ive never had that with BA so in the long run, BA would be my choice

    Thanks Supermario. Do you think using Big Ace mains and Baseline crosses would be a cost effective hybrid to maintain most of the characteristics of Big Ace or would the rapid tension loss of Baseline lessen the overall playability? Thanks

    Seems like an alright combo to try...give it a whirl and see what you think...very cost effective strings for what you get out of them. Definitely worth it imo.

    That sounds like a sweet setup. I'm going to throw a Redcode/Multi in my KPS 88 when it gets here :)

    PS: Are you selling your KPSs on da bay?

    because they are using your pictures without your consent.
    also, they could be trying rip someone off and sell tennis racquets they don't own or are of a poor quality..
     
  48. Mastadon_10S

    Mastadon_10S Guest

    exactly. if you are not selling them on the bay, then someone is using that exact picture and attempting to sell your racquets that they obviously do not have. i was just trying to help you out... sorry

    I'd just copy the auction number in an email to **** and let them know that those are your sticks, and that you are not selling them and that is definitely not your username. I already sent the 'seller' an email asking him to confirm the originality of the sticks by sending me specific pictures... big surprise, no email!
