    Anybody think that TIMO is stiffer/harsher than ALU? Should i compensate by lowering the tension a couple lbs? I string ALU at 55lbs and i have a set of TIMO, wondering what tension to use..
    Also, does anybody know if Tim Henman really uses Timo?

    Yes the TiMO is a littler harsher and stiffer. Follow the suggested 10% lower tension than usual, and you'll be glad you did.


    Danel,

    Why you hate Tim Henman?

    I agree with gmslam....Timo is the only string I've tried that caused me to have soreness in my elbow. I am a regular ALU user and have never have this problem with it.
