    I'm currently demoing this racquet and I really like it, went ahead and ordered one. I just wanted to hear from others that use this stick, what string setup they use or have tried. I have had some arm and shoulder issues in the past, so I'm looking for something that will be kind to that, as well as offer good pop. Thanks.

    I don't own and have not demo-ed the org V1 but I have demo-ed the classic v1, pb v1, and boris becker v1.

    Since you mention arm issues, I would try a multi around 58-60 lbs. I would use a 16G multi for durability in the 102" head with open string pattern. TF NRG2 is my favorite multi.

    If your arm can handle it, co-poly mains at 50 with a multi or syn gut cross at 53 lbs would also be a good option. You could even go down to 48/51 on tension. Signum Pro Tornado co-poly or TF Blackcode or TF RuffCode in 17G are all great co-poly I would suggest. Gosen, Klip Kicker and Volkl syn guts are all good too with Volkl being the softest and Gosen and Klip being a bit crisper.

    I've had an Organix V1 MP for about 5 months now. Moved to this racquet because of some elbow and shoulder problems. I started with a full bed of gut (VS 16) at 54.

    This felt great on the arm, but found I didn't have the control I had with my previous Head Speed 300 with a full poly (I know...apples and oranges). But I liked the V1 in every other way. It is better on serves and is more stable at the net.

    Tried upping the tension to 56, but still feel there is too much power for my swing. Bought another V1 and strung it with Cyclone at 48. Love the control and spin, and also feel like I can take a bigger cut at the ball without fear of driving it out, but off centre hits can be a little hard on the arm.

    I'm wondering if I should just up the tension of the gut to 58 or if I should try a gut/poly hybrid.

    Had an Organix V1 for 5 months and have tried a couple of strings. Started with full bed of VS 16 at 54. Was plush and easy on the arm (concerns for me), but felt I lacked precision and couldn't swing hard because I'd launch the ball (coming from a Head Speed 300 with RPM at 48). Tried upping the tension to 56 and that helped but not enough.

    Then tried Cyclone at 48. This helped with control and spin. Also felt like I could swing away without holding back. Problem was that I could feel off centre hits on the arm again.

    Not sure if I should stay with gut and up the tension again (58?) or try a gut/poly hybrid for the first time. If the latter, what tension would be a good starting point?

    Sorry for the double post. Got an error message on the first, but it apparently took anyway.

    have my Organix V1 MP strung with NXT Tour mains and copoly crosses at 56/52 and it's pretty great. Good power but not too much.

    I have another I just strung with full V-Feel (multi) at 55 that I will try soon. It's Volkl's new multi that's supposed to give more spin and not be too powerful.

    I've got about 40 hours logged on to the V1MP. Tried syn gut #60 - overall a good choice and quite comfortable. Next up was gut-beast xp hybrid @57-52. Much preferred the crisper feel and control. Its about to break and will try gut-4g next. Should be just a little stiffer. No discomfort at all with the gut-poly hybrid.

    I just strung up a 2nd V1MP - with BHB7 poly /MCS multi @52-55, mostly for when the clay is really wet - didn't try it yet.

    So far I haven't found the V1MP to be very string sensitive. I have no problems keeping balls in with this supposedly powerful racquet, but I'd keep the tension up with full non-poly. I also have not felt any discomfort and may also try a full poly at low tension (45 - 50 range)
