    There's an "X" underneath the Head logo on Youzhny's strings. Anyone know what the "X" represents?

    Pretty sure that's the logo for Pacific Natural Gut strings. Stepanek has the same logo.

    And it is Poly Force 17 main, and Tough Gut 16 cross. Forgot the name of it as a pre-packaged set.

    Thank you Jura, I always just bought the full set of gut and full set of poly and lopped them in half for customer use. For some reason I thought it was tough gut in the cross, but you're right in another thread it was the Tour, not Tough they use. Dang I'm slipping!

    Actually, I have a set of Poly Gut in my hand it the crosses are Tough Gut. Used to be Tour, but Pacific changed the name. Hope this helps.

    Yeah. The string stencils have a sort of "standard" of frame manufacturer on top, string maker on bottom.

    Not always, back in the day Bow Brand used to want their "spot" up high on the frame. Edberg used to do it that way, and when I was on their preferred list back in the day, was asked to do it that was as well. Was kind of tough on my frame being I played Head and had to have that oen there too on a small Prestige Tour 600

    ... Hoped I'd covered that with my "sort of a Standard" remark.

    Karl, I wasn't trying to be argumentative. ANd you're right, it has become the norm to do the string at the bottom these days.

    I think the beginning made Babolat with the double line at the end of the 80s. Than more and more came string brands as Poly Star, Kirschbaum, TOA, Pacific, Luxilon, Isospeed, TF, Gamma and some more - all make the stencil at the bottom. Or does anybody know any exception except Bow Brand?

    There's been the occasional lower ranked player who switched to Babolat frames but still had a Luxilon contract and were also putting a Luxilon stencil on there as well. Usually rather up high on the string bed.
