    ok so i had a brand new prostaff original that i absolutly loved that i broke(m sensation17@59/x nxt tour 16@57). i recently swiched to a midplus o3 shark because i wanted more power, but sadly i lost control when i strung it wit nxt tour 17 mains @ 59 and nxt max 16 at 57 for the crosses.

    so my question is what would you sugest as strings? i was thinking about just buying some cheap gosen stuff in 16 for the mains and trying some other different stuff for the crosses so that i can save money. does anyone recomend alu power 16L rough?

    PSGD is a popular one. Lux is stiff so if you use synthetics, stick to the synthetics.

    The Gosen OG Micro 16 feels pretty nice in the O3 racquets. It is pretty firm feeling for a synthetic, so if you string it pretty tight, it adds a crispness and feel to the frames.

    ok so i actually just got the wilson sensation duo(sensation 16 crosses @59 and enduro pro 17 @ 61) and i like them, so is the sensation anything like the gosen and is the enduro pro anything like the alu?

    You might also try the Prince Syn Multis - or even crisper than that is the Gosen OG Sheep Micro multis.

    My own experience as I used to play with both those in a more powerful stick is the 1.18 guage SPPP is sweetness. Super soft for a poly (I think softer yet more control than the crisp Multis mentioned above).
