TW Playtester: Q for string setup of Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro
 
Just bought and played the Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro for the very first time.

Strung with Dunlop Black Widow full bed at 55lbs. The feeling seems bit boardy and hard to hit top spin.

I decide to change the string back to my favorite, Volkl Cylcone 17.
May I know what tension recommend for full bed of Volkl Cylcone 17 on Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro?

Thanks!

If you found Black Widow too stiff at 55 lbs, I would go with 51 lbs with the Cyclone. That will soften up the stringbed a little bit and make it more comfortable.

thanks Andy for your prompt response.

BTW, may I know which string and tension you guys playtest with this stick?

We used a couple of different setups. One was strung with Solinco Tour Bite mains and Forten Sweet crosses, and another was strung with a full bed of Head Sonic Pro. Both were at mid-tension.

u mean mid-tension is around 55lbs? or mid of suggested tension of Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro (48-57 pounds), which is 53lbs?

Mid-tension for the racquet. 53 lbs.

Just to add up with this thread TW... Which one performs best from you guys? Hybrid (solinco/forten) or full poly? Coz I'm going to string it with BBO 16g.

I think it depends on personal preference as far as which performed better. Personally, I liked the full bed of poly, but some of our other playtesters preferred the hybrid for a bit more power and comfort.
