    It's not that bad. A lot like Signum Pro Tornado and there are significantly harder strings to string up (for example Black Widow is a PITA).

    Picked up a second Yonex to compare the Cyclone to Cyclone Tour. I quite like the red over the black however :(

    [​IMG]

    Volkl Cyclone Tour 17 @ 50lbs / Klip Synthetic Gut 16 @ 48.5 lbs

    Going on from before, the Cyclone has broken in nicely and I quite prefer it over this now....eep!

    Interesting! Not the most common string for a cross, but I suppose it's edges are not so sharp that it'll cut the gut but I can not see the benefit? Tell me how it feels any way :)

    Its edges not being sharp is the only reason I even considered it :p

    Also, its characteristics as a string are interesting. Soft and lively, yet it has a firm (crisp) and defined feel. Quite slick and durable, so it should promote string movement and not dent. We'll see how it does, but it should be interesting.

    Vendetta red, Dunlop S-Gut black. Oh yeah.

    Cool note - went to the Klippermate site looking for the stringing pattern and let them know I couldn't find it - within 2 hours they emailed me back and had updated the site.

    Wow, that Aqua color by Diadem is probably the best string color I've ever seen! How do they play though, are you liking them?

    I am in the in the Diadem play test and it is doing very well for me. The color clashes so hard that I think it ends up looking just find in my racquet.

    Try using a Parnell knot or a Wilson Pro Knot, they won't be as bulky at that double hitch.

    Needed to test my repaired machine on a full string job.
    Racket: Stellar Supreme - made in Australia circa 1984 I reckon.
    String: Klipspringer Tournament XL titanium coated syn gut 1.32mm in two-piece
    Check out the grommet holes, very Steampunk...
    Only one way to string the crosses.
    Machine worked ok with M8 wing nut central clamp repair, going to try a M8 stronger handle tonight.
    Picked up this stringless stick for $4...

    How long does the stencil last? Every time I tried applying stencils on poly string it was gone in 15 min of hitting, is there a way to make it last? (I've tried a bunch of different brands)

    Hmm the hyper g has lasted over 4 hours now and its still quite visible. Not as good as fresh, but you can definitely see its a yonex logo. Did you start hitting immediately after stringing and putting the stencil?

    It could be a day or two by the time I go play after stringing... The stencil colors the ball and goes away wuickly so I stopped doing it. Too bad cause some look great. Do pros/pro stringers have access to something else than retail inks?
