    Recently acquired a pair of used Boris Becker v1 frames -- they came strung with Solinco Bite, solid but a little harsh. I'd love to find a syngut or hybrid setup with good feel and pocketing. Any ideas on a good way to set up this frame? Thanks for any ideas!

    Put two(2) grams of lead tape at 3:00/9:00 where the big grommets (yellow) are, as well as 1/2 gram at the top of the frame(12:00) and your Classic V1 will have a ton of plow through.

    As for the strings, I suggest full gut, multi, or a very low tension poly or co-poly.
