    So i've been watching the Open and I keep hearing the commentators talk about These New Strings that the pros are using. I hear they can make me hit with topspin just like Nadal and every ball I hit will just drop in no matter how hard I hit it.

    Where do I get a set of These New Strings? I looked for them everywhere but nobody seems to carry them. I plan on putting it in one of Those New Light Racquets if it helps.

    are you by any chance using one of those new-fangled "two handed" backhands? at my club there is a youngster who hits with something he calls "overspin" or "topspin"; I can't remember which. The ball seems to arc downwards resulting in less depth. I don't see the benefit or the point - I think its just a fad.

    perhaps he is just unable to hit a proper slice forehand.

    also, on his service he throws the ball well above his head hits it with his arm stretched upwards! I have spoken to the club management about this and they assure me it's within the rules; he seems to have found some ridiculous loophole. anyway, he looks ridiculous doing it. he is the laughingstock of the members and the pros at the club.

    I think what they are refering to are simply polyester strings that may or may not be textured or shaped to get more spin. They say this I think because they grew up and played with NG their whole career. (most of them at least)

    Dude, just shut up.

    And they are referring to just Polyester strings like Luxilon Big Banger or Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour.

    I think the new wonder strings have something to do with this company:
