    It's often said on these forums that thinner gauge strings are livelier than their thicker counterparts. Just wondering what that means to you? Power, spin, dwell time...??

    Any input appreciated. Thanks.

    i personally think its all of those things put together, thinner gauge strings allow the strings themselves to snap back faster resulting in more spin and some power

    Feels like the stringbed is more active during contact with tennis ball, like they are moving around more. Better feedback too; you can get a more accurate impression of where on the stringbed the tennis ball landed too.
