    Is it just me or does the APD w/ Cortex looks like its black and white instead of yellow, white, and black...?

    edit: Never mind. I just figured out that its the other side of the racquet... doy...

    what strings are in all of them?

    I played most of last year with the Diablo MP´s, they are strung with:

    1-KlipperUSA Graphite16 at 62lbs/Prince synth gut 16 at 59 lbs
    2-Babolat VS 16 at 59 lbs/Babolat Superfine PLay 17 at 56 lbs
    3-Tecnifibre ProRed Code 16 at 60 lbs/Gamma Synth Gut at 57 lbs

    The one in the middle of the pic (with the VS/SFplay hybrid) was my main racquet. It felt really comfortable and with a perfect blend of power and control. The Asian K90 are from a friend of mine, I strung them both with Yonex Tour 880ti at 60/57 and 57/54 lbs.

    Currently Im giving both the Babolat Aeropro and the Dunlop AG 200 a try, the Babolat has Fibertour 16 at 60 lbs/Attraction 16 at 57 lbs.

    I took the pic of the Dunlop with a Luxilon BB 16 at 60 lbs/Topspin Poly Polar at 57 lbs hybrid, but it felt like crap. My elbow started to hurt with just a few hits, so I cut it off and righ now Im waiting for a hybrid set of Babolat Xcel/Pro Hurricane to strung it again.

    I´ve also tried the Head Extreme Pro, a Volkl DNX 10 mid and one of the Asian K90, but to be honest I think I will be sticking with the Diablos for now.

    Thanks guys, yeah I switch between the original red grips and white. I would usually like a cleaner white grip, but sometimes you just gotta go with the red;) . Those are all gone now though, I went through two sets of red code today:sad:

    Anyone else here use/tried blue gear?

    I thought it was very spinny, but not a great string otherwise.
    Probably choose between cyberpower and sppp. Any other strings similar to those?

    while looking at some nice lookin string jobs and rackets on this forum, i can't help but notice that most of the rackets are almost flawless, just like the day u bought them. Do u guys play with them? or don't return low shots? :confused:

    From what I've read, it adds weight to such a small head size. As the grommets wrap around to the throat. If that's not right, anyone care to share?

    its basically a system of grommets that goes around the entire head to protect the frame...and it adds weight obviously

    I think C.A.P grommets main function is to protect the string....

    I don't have a very good knowledge about stringing, so I don't have a precise idea about this thread's usefulness.
    however, that's my freshly strung racquet, just in case it could show stringing experts some useful/specific information ;-)

    My rackets usually get scratched within the first 2 weeks.
    Seeing the pics made me wonder if i'm not treating the racket well, lol.
    I guess ppl should start playing with their rackets, instead of playing :p
