    It was mentioned by Cahill during the match yesterday, that he switched to RPM Blast, but I doubt it. Though he is using black strings.

    This is what I would assume, with his Head sponsorship and everything.

    Huh, I never thought of HEAD having strings w/ enough quality for pros to use, they should do a better job marketing their high end strings, seemed to me they were focused on the cheap end of the string market for rec players who didn't really know any better.

    Still need a pro stringer to chime in though to confirm.

    Ok not trying to be a **** here cause I love everyone here at TT, yes even the trolls, but we dont need to go through a list of all the black strings it COULD be. So pls, unless u are sure, or lets say at least 80% sure pls dont just guess.

    There's a a really good picture in Y! Sports. Definitely not RPM, Black Code or any other shaped or twisted black string.

    Given that stan played with lux before and the highly unlikely fact that he would go to an "off brand", Killer is most likely right and he's using RPM.

    His tension is usually 30kg mains and 28kgs crosses when he was using ALU.

    Racquet sponsorship doesn't include strings. Thats why some players have the smaller stencil under the racquet stencil to show they are sponsored by another company for strings (or even the same company; I've seen an old pic of Gasquet with 2 HEAD stencils on a racquet) but most players can use whatever string they wish. In some cases, even overgrisp (Safin using Yonex Supergrap)

    RPM Blast. Read it back in the spring on p1's website when he first switched. I'm positive.

    Nice, ok that's the best we got so far since we have some other evidence pointing this way as well.

    But where have all the stringers gone? Ill keep bumping this till someone at least pretends to be a stringer and tells me Stan's set up! *shakes fist at screen*
