    I'm curious about the string setup used in the Prince Classic Graphite 100 review. What was the copoly setup? Do you have suggestions on the tension?

    Thanks for the help!

    We were using one of Prince's new strings, Tour XS, and we thought it played great. It offers lots of spin with good control and comfort. I'd also recommend trying Tourna Big Hitter Black 7 in it as well. It will be a little livelier and more spin-friendly, but won't give you quite as good control and tension maintenance.

    Thanks Andy. Do you recall if it was strung at the lower end of the tension range?

    We strung it at mid tension so around 57-58 lbs. We used 16 gauge.

    If I normally string a modded tight 315 (SW closer to 330) at 50-52 in a poly/syn hybrid, what would you suggest I string the LB version at? Normally I would stay at the same tension, but factoring in the power level should I go a little higher?

    I would probably go up a couple pounds, but you might have to do some trial and error.

    You guys nailed it. 56#s instead of 51 was the ticket.
