Thanks for the tip.
Pro's Pro Spinox plays very similar to 4G and costs $33.70 for a full reel. I've been playing 4G in one Steam 99S frame and Spinox in another side by side for a week and I'm absolutely shocked by how similar they feel. Spinox is my new go-to string for the 99S.
I think it will come up a little short. It takes me 14' of string to do the crosses on a 105S. I might be able to get that down a couple of inches but not enough to get three sets from 40'.
Where did you get those 1.38 Concepts? I found that 1.33 is the thickest one on their site.
BigTtennis has 1.38 for $37
Thanks for the report racertempo. My 4G reel is almost gone and as much as I love it, that $180/reel price tag is hard to pay. Apparently though, you bought the last reel of 1.38 Concept. hexagon was right: 1.33 is the thickest on their site now
$180? That's cheap lol
here in Germany a reel costs €224,90
Not to mention 4G Rough, where a reel costs €279,90!!
We're being ripped off big time here
Well, I order it via the "slow boat". It normally costs $260.
Also, BigT confirmed that the Concept 1.38 has been discontinued.
How's the spin of concept? BigT website says it compares to scorpion, which isn't really a spin friendly string.
Have you tryed Prince Tour XS??? Incredible spin and control.
I'm using Prince XS 1.35 as my crosses, since they seem to create a nice base for the mains to slide on. I haven't tried a full bed, but I'm a little worried about tension maintenance and durability. The XS crosses break before the 4G mains, somewhere around 15-20 hours. I'm worried that XS as the mains will break in half that time. Once my 4G is all gone, though, I'll probably need to start experimenting again.
Question: Transitioning from the pure drive to the steam 99s. Had been playing the PD with a Hybrid (poly/Multi: Cyclone tour mains/Prince PPA in crosses) at low tension around 40/44, sometimes 36/40.
Question is how does the 99s play at the low tension range? I guess the recommended range is 54-64.
