    Hi, this is my first post here.

    I purchased a Liquidmetal 8 about a month ago in an effort to get back into the game. I really like the racket but am still playing with the supplied strings. I have been using the racket 5 days a week now and the strings are deadening a bit. And since they were factory installed anyway I think I owe it to myself (haha) to get it restrung.

    I think I want to drop to 17 given that I am not over powerful and have not broken a 16 yet. (I am playing at a 2.5 right now.)

    Without going too crazy, do you all have any suggestions on stringing this racket?

    Thanks in advance,
    Paul

    It's an open pattern on an oversize head. I'd stick with the 16 gauge.

    And if it was factory strung, then it was probably Head Synthetic Gut 16 right at mid-point. 2 cents.

    Knowing this, go to the TWU String database to see what is available that is softer or stiffer. If you like the feel, then you can use a comparable string.
