    Your opinions? I got the set and my racket string broke earlier today and i want to get it strung with proline II. What do you guys reccomend, full bed or hybrid and if so with what string? And should i stick to low tensions with it or higher?

    I've mentioned on a couple other threads that I think PL II is fine in a full string bed. Actually, everyone I know that uses PL II uses a full string bed. PL II returns pace well and nobody I know that uses it has arm problems.

    Everybody's game is different so it's hard to recommend for another person but I might try a pound or two less. I'm not a big hitter and 53 feels good to me.

    Try it in a full bed, so that you have less variables in your "do I like this stringjob?" thoughts.

    Then, if you like it, great! If you don't, you can hybrid it, or never touch it again!

    Personally, I use it now as one of my favorite crosses with natural or multi mains. But don't take MY word for it...
