    it feels real good. not as stiff as red code, the biphase crosses softens it up, as noveson said :D

    What tension are you using in this setup? I ask as I am getting ready to buy me a couple of 6.1 teams.

    Edit - saw your reponse down a few posts :)

    How does this setup hit? I have always used the champions choice.

    quite dense for a 16x19

    I like the even string spacing.

    Does anyone think the string spacing on the Pro is tight, as in very close together?

    Or are my eyes decieving me?

    O3 Tour MP

    I used to have a Prince O3 Tour in the 100 like Davydenko used. At one point I had it strung with the orange SPPP and had a bright orange overgrip (klipper) on it that looked awesome for anyone who likes the color orange.

    Oh man SPPP looks great in that racket. Great choice. It pops quite fast though too, atleast the 17g version. tons of bite.

    It hits really well, although probably not as good as champions choice. While the X-1 is quite expensive, the poly is dirt cheap. I use the poly only to stiffen up the stringbed. It doesn't have good spin potential, but I have a semi-eastern forehand, so it is not an issue for me with this setup. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info. I might give this a try in my new team as it would be alot less expensive then the champions choice. Color choice looks great in this racquet as well

    why did you get a k95 team if you were just going to lead it up like that...

    How does this setup compare to the x-1/gosen polylon? I am assuming you have more then 1 team? If so what is the purpose of going with a different string setup? Playing on different court types?

    I will always love my pro hurricane/Xcel combo, super pretty. And now, the racquet has an M stencil. M is for Megalicious!

    I've noticed a bunch of posters mentioning they use polyon ice, is that a good string? It's really cost efficient but i don't know if i want it...

    It is a first generation poly. It's durable and cheap. That's about the only good things I can say about it:)

    There are a lot newer polys that are just a tad more expensive that are much better IMO.

    i have a 1hbh so the tournagrip original doesn't even get dirty all the way, tournaXL would just be a waste of excess grip and money.

    haha, actually today a club member didn't like it on an extra racquet he had but never used so i gladly took it. I normally play with just the power pads but it does look sick

    Damn! Is that your usual setup? I never would have guessed that the light blue would look so nice with the M-fil 300 color patterns. What color overwrap (if any) do you use?

    Post more!
