    Would like reccomendation on a combo string job for this racquet. Senior playing only doubles, can hit base line power, but like to serve and volley. Very good touch at net.

    I use Wilson Sensation 17g @ 55 lbs. in one of these for a 4.0+ senior player that I string for.

    Why do you want a combo string job? Are you breaking string so often you need a poly? Oh--is this racquet new to you, or are you thinking of changing a string you have been unhappy with in it?

    Have only broken one string in my nine years of playing. I was just lookin to get a little more top spin as I hit relatively flat with current stokes.

    Your best chance of that, then, is to get a thinner and more flexible racquet first. Your Triad 3.0 is too stiff and the beam is too thick to move that racquet up the back of the ball efficiently enough.

    It well might. But now you need to ensure you know how to alter your stroke in order to hit the topspin you crave. Once you've corrected for that, you could change to a thinner gauge of Wilson's Extreme synthetic gut, which plays like it's uncoated.
