other than durability
why do you use the string that you use?
cause i have a sponsorship
Because they like it for spin, control and power. Yes indeed, new polys have power. Gut is not the be all and end all many of you proselytize.
so basically...you're saying that you use the string that you use because it's cheap/free? im pretty sure w/e company it's from, you prefer to use one of the other...and it's the same w/ the pros. they use what they like best and what fits their game.
how does it fit their game better than other string?
you are not answering the question
how is it better than other string for playability?
most other string rate better than poly for playability, but not durabity
another reason is the lack of poly movement.
when your a pro and have to fix your strings all the time after a point it tears up your fingers.
when i play alot of tournaments and use a string that moves i always get cuts in my finger near the nail from fixing the string
WHY DONT SOME ACTUALL PROS SPEAK UP FOR ONCE. COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK AND POST AN ANSWER
SPADEA AINT AFRAID A YA, WHAT SAY YOU!!!!!
the pros that use full poly jobs do so because thats what they like. they like how it feels, plays, etc. it's the same question as "why do certain pros use babolats and others use yonex?"
You wouldn't believe who I am, anyway
it is the complete opposite of gut
there must be some logic behind their choice.
saying they like how it feels and plays is not answering the question
also, why play with a smaller sweet spot?
I strung full big banger original on my ncode last week...sucked!!!!! I can't feel the ball at all!!!
that's just YOUR opinion. and i've already answered the question several times.
you ask why pros use full polys...i answer because they like how it plays and feels. the logic behind their choice is because they like how it plays and feels.
and the smaller sweetspot...that's like asking why pros play w/ an oversize and not a midsize...why play w/ the smaller sweetspot on the midsize?
i have taken that into consideration
why is jolie hotter than anniston
you cant say she just look better
there are many reasons behind the conclusion she looks better.
i felt the same way
i do feel that the big banger are crisper
is it because we are so use to playing with softer string, it just takes time to get use to poly. but in the long run, it will be better for our game.
In the modern game, the extreme amount of spin tends to destroy softer strings. Blake stated, in a Tennis Channel Bag Check segment, that he gets about 2 hours from an all Lux string job. The polyss, both the gold and silver and all the more recent blends, give the durabillity that the Kevlar hybirds gave, with a different feel. Note, I didn't say better, as that is fairly subjective.
I hope this adresses the question you posed.
I would believe you. i would even believe you if you said you were Federer. It would not surprize me if top pros spoke out in this chat.
Im sure in many pros spare time spending time on here would be cool. Thats what i might do when i had some down time is to interact with the people that help make the industry tick.
It would actually be very helpfull if you were a pro and said who you were. For me it would help me then use what you say in a more constructive way with more conviction.
if you dont want to say your name, you could say around what your ranking is.
If i was james blake i would hve no problem being open about who I was. That way it would help us ask you a few direct questions about string and really help us get info from the pros perspective.
I love tennis. I used to teach for 12 years.
Dont be shy to say who you are.
yeah cmon ripper, even if ur andy roddick, whats gonna happen if u say that on this board, some might not believe you but who cares, its not like giving away your address and phone number.
