    He is still using the head tour team bag not the new prestige bag. Why?

    The Youtek PJ looks sort of like the liquidmetal cosmetic.

    I thought the ones from Fall 08 were blue. These look black

    Edit: maybe it's my eyes but they could be blue too. Although I think on the Punjab colorway (the blue Fall 08), the stripes were silver

    16, I would think very few pros or none at all use 15, 17 or 18.

    Great, thank you.

    I respectfully disagree though about other pros. There are a ton using using string around the 1.25 range.

    Thanks again.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, what is the difference between 16 and 1.25?

    1.25(mm) = 17g, 1.30(mm) = 16g.

    String Gauge

    You will have to check the actual string diameter and not just rely on what the manufacturer says is 16, 17, 18. Examples:

    Gamma TNT2 Pro Plus 17L 1.25
    Pro Supex Synth Gut 120 1.2
    Forten Dynamix 18 1.21
    Wilson NXT Tour 18 1.24
    Pacific Poly Power 18 1.09
    Pacific tough gut16 1.26

    Gamma Professional 18 1.22

    That white sock-black shoe look is awful. Please, let's not see any more of it.
