    My girlfriend demo'd the PD cortex and loved it.... she noticeably hit much better for the week she had it. We bought the same racquet strung with Excel at 58lbs and she's not really digging it. I feel it's not as powerful or controlled as the demo. What does TW string these racquets with for demos? Is it NXT at say 57?

    thanks in advance!

    We string our Babolat demos with Xcel 16 @ Mid+2. The difference you felt between the two racquets is probably the difference in tension loss. The demo was probably sitting around longer than your freshly strung racquet, therefore, losing more tension. The lower the tension, the more power, which is what your girlfriend experienced.
