    Remember also I was hitting long with L6 Prestige MP the i Radical MP is L4 and more powerful....and previously long balls are dropping. The additional i Radical frame was recently bought exclusively for this test.

    Will try 40# setup as well in a Head L6 Prestige MP frame should enable me to hit with even more pace and spin??

    This super low tension stuff is "Radical"

    18 gauge Cyclone at 46 pounds feels AMAZING in my prestige's! Good feel, great spin, ok power, pin point control and good price.

    As the Prestige MP is a very low powered stick it should work fine with a full bed of gut, which has lots of power. Anyone tested that?
    Thanks!

    Just checking in...
    Still playing amazing with the 42 lbs msv hex 1.10mm. I don't want to say my performance improved with a string set up change but it has =p. Maybe it has given me more control or confidence to really bring my game to the next level. I don't see my changing set ups for a long while.

    Im still cutting them out after 15-20 hours, even though they could last longer. They are cheap and i'm stringing them myself so cutting them out isn't a big deal.

    I've tested the same set up with cyclone but did not like it. I'd preferred the tension maintence of msv hex compared to the cyclone.

    i have only two reels: Volkl syn gut 17g(TW happy hour $40), and Pro's Pro Blackforce(blah blah $37).

    with my TE(see sig block), i've dropped from 55-58# down to 35-42#. i mostly like syn as mains for the gut-like feel with nice snap back, but looses tension and feels mushy, also notches fast.
    right now, i have full bed PP at 38#, and feels more crisp not mushy, also has more bite than syn mains.
    the added lead at 10 and 2 gives me a nice plow on my strokes.

    I just strung my MPMP with rpm 17 full bed at 42 and it's really nice, decent power, good control, decent feel and it's not stiff at all.

    I think I found my string:)

    I have tryed some Polys in my TGT 293.2 PJ IG Prestige MP XL lenght:

    -MSV Focus Hex 1,10 at 25 kilos: stiff the 2 firsts hours. After is fantastic. It lasts about 20 hours (clay court).

    -ProsPro PlusPower at 25/23,5 kilos: stiff but it´s fantastic string. 2 options: less tension for the next or hybrid????

    -Dyreex Black Edge 25 kilos: great string. Little stiff.

    Other options?

    I would like to try hybrids with some power and cheap multi.

    Tour Bite 17 at 36 lbs.

    You may think I'm crazy but try it for a few days and see the light.

    Using the IG mid.

    I loved the feel of Black Magic, but wanted to see if a textured string with similar feel would get my blood pumping. I gotta say Typhoon is pretty darn awesome. Tons of great feel for me. Bite when I swing for maximum spin.
