What is your favourite string set-up for this racquet?
big banger alu power rough at 56! thinking about trying something new
I'm currently using Pacific Champ One and Pacific Tough Gut (natural) at 53lbs works very nice! Great combo!
Also got one strung with ALU Power Rough and Babolat VS Touch 51.
Great combo also
Toughgut 16l mains at 54, silverstring 1.2 52lbs
Try Big Banger rough 54 with quasi gut cross 58.
I've gone with a thin gauge poly at low tensions and i'm loving it. I'm currently using msv hex 18l (1.10mm) and it feels amazing. I have to restring every 12-15 hours but i've never played better.
I know some others have similar string set ups with low tension polys in the 18x20.
thanks. i will be trying klip gut uncoated and alu power hybrid. for my first option. tried a gut/poly combo set-up before with 18x19 pattern & it gives me inconsistency. hope the tight string pattern and low power type of racquet would me what i want. and intellitour hybrid 16 will be my second option in the future...
i've been trying the ELT in the low 30s and am liking it (as well as my elbow). for one set up, i went back to low 50's for syn and high 40's poly, and my TE would flare up! keeped me up at night in pain. i cut it after 3x playing.
now i'm back to syn mains@42, poly cross@35. it feels very good compared. my next set up might be poly@33/syn@38.
Lovin' my PrestigeMP
In my YTPMP I use Pro Line 2 in mains and Yonex poly tour spin in crosses, both at same tension somewhere between 50 and 55
full bed natural gut at 63 - 68 lbs.
rpm blast 17g at 52 trust me it is the bomb
Prestige Mid - RPM Blast 18 mains, Forten Sweet 17 at 55lbs. May go lower next time but down from 60lbs, Baby steps
52lbs full bed nrg2,
53lbs gut/ 51lbs co-focus
thanks final fantasy.
vndesu, tried blast rpm before... what i don't like about that string is tension maintenance! thanks.
Tour bite 18 gauge at 52lbs.
Several Strings,,Luxilon BB Ace 53/51,Genesis-Hexonic 18L(1.09mm) 53/51, Head Rip Control, 53/51,Tier one Sports tour status 16g 53/51 and 60/58,ect
Hybrid - natural gut 17 and 16 syngut at medium tight...
Prestige S, Sonic Pro Edge at 20lbs
wish to try
Mains: Pacific Bull Gut 1.20mm, 51lbs
Crosses: Solince Tour Bite 19, 41lbs
Wouldn't warp the racquet? 10lbs difference from main to crosses...
I've been trying 10lbs difference this summer and it's been good! Also have it on my Yonex 001 90[54/44], BLX90[47/37] and on my X10 Midsize, it's actually a 12lb difference[50/38].
I think it's safe to do because there are more crosses than mains and they are shorter too.
I have an IG Prestige Pro with Solinco Outlast 16 @ 52 lbs mains, and Technifibre Multifeel 16 @ 56 lbs in crosses. Absolutely gobs of spin.
It does for me, a tad. Last time I experimented with natural gut in mains with poly crosses, I did 60/52. My racquet was more circular and less egg-shaped, compared to doing a full bed of any other string @ the same tension.
