    I have a Yonex Ezone XI 100 coming soon. I have demoed it before and it has a muted feel to it. I usually string with RIP control and its probably not a good fit for it, that string is too muted as well.

    Looking for a multi with lively feel with good to excellent spin and medium power.

    This is my power racquet so no low powered strings will work. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Use any of the top 10 multi's in Mikeler's Multi Thread. RIP Control is a multi composed of polyolefin ribbons and I always felt it played crisp in softer flex Head racquets. HTH.

    I use MSV Hex 17 ga black in my Xi.

    Tip: make sure you try to hit more towards the top of stick in case you were not familiar with Yonex

    If you must use a multi, try the Yonex Tour Super 850; it's a nice fit for this racquet. However, I like this frame the most with a full bed or hybrid with a soft co-poly at 49-52lbs. Prince Beast is really sweet in the Ezone xi 100. Also, I would not recommend using anything thinner than 16g as it starts to feel a bit harsh on the arm (at least for me it did).

    No local stores carry the Yonex Super Tour 850, probably leaning towards Xcel Or PPA.

    Can't go wrong with either of those.

    Well the seller sent the 98 XI instead of the 100 XI, oh hell I am just going to keep it. I have the Dunlop 400T as the rocket launcher. Still going to put Xcel or PPA in it.
