pros with prestige-what are their string setups?
 
Does anybody know what strings and tensions that pros are using for their Prestiges (all versions and paintjobs including prestiges under the pjs).

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that Safin used a mix of strings in his Prestige mids - sometimes BB Rough, sometimes gut/BB Rough or Alu - from what I gather, he played a higher tension as well, even with the poly strings.

You can't have every single one of them but the bread and butter prestige configuration is something like Soderling's with two layers of lead 4 to 8 o'clock, silicone in the handle, tourna and Original at 21kg :)

Thanks, but I was referring to the string and tension.

Not to worry...he has a problem with reading comprehension, have a look here http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=355990 for another example.

Anyway, back to topic...from memory:
- Safin I think used Big Banger Original ... not ALU (as per some video of Nate Ferguson on youtube).
- Monfils full Lux
- Wawrinka full Lux
- Murray - Lux mains/gut crosses
- Simon - Head IntelliTour string
- Ivanisevic used Gut
- the Argentinians (Calleri, Acasuso) using the prestige use variations of Lux (ALU?)
- Haas used full gut, but I think he may be using a gut hybrid more recently.

Can't think of any others ...

Edit...
Here's the video I was talking about - Nate Ferguson...he has some info on tensions as well. Hope this helps
