    I never get my questions I post on here answered anyways but I'll give it one last shot. So I have 2 babolat aero storm tour and I'm wondering what to string them with. I'm trying to find a poly that will work. So what would you all suggest? I hit pretty flat and have a big flat serve and a pretty good kick serve. I also try to get to the net some. Strings I'm looking at are RPM Blast, PHT, Revenge and Pro Hurricane Feel. (I don't think I would break Luxilons enough). But I've heard bad reviews about RPM. So what do you all think?

    what do you like about it? I don't mind spending some money I string my own rackets so I'd just buy a reel

    If you hit flat and like going to net, poly is the worst string for you. A good multi like NXT max or nat gut will give you a longer life and more feel. A poly is mostly for spin oriented baseliners.

    I've been seeing that suggestion a lot around the forums and I think I'll give it a shot. and with bhbr being 8 bucks and nrg2 14 I can get 2 rackets strung for 20 bucks!

    That is kiteboard's default response to string suggestion threads. Pretty sure that those are the only keys on his keyboard nowadays.

    just from what I've seen on TW black widow looks OK but i think I'll try bhbr and RPM first. What do you all think about babolat PHT or PHF?

    IMO Signum Pro Poly Plasma, TF Red/Black Code, WC, and Big Hitter Blue or Silver are just as good or better than Luxilon or Babolat at a lower price. With better tension maintenance.

    Not a bad combo, though.
