Great stuff - thanks for sharing.
Regarding my string choice these days.. I tried a number of polys, and have come to the conclusion that it's not for me. I came close with SPPP and another softer copoly, but my arm just couldn't handle it with the frequency I play. I really like the feel and performance of a decent multi main and Gosen OG Micro cross. So right now I have going:
Main: Prince Premier Softflex 16 @ 65
Cross: Gosen OG Micro 17 @ 65
It doesn't last long.. but since I string my own it ends up not being that expensive. Looking forward to trying the lead setup.
I like poly but I have also had some pain in the last few weeks. I only really use it becuase I break so many strings and a hybrid lasts longer for me. I have just got 3 reels of Micro 16 and will be trying a full setup and a gut hybrid....the stuff is so cheap I could restring full micro everyday anyway. Let me know how you like the lead....btw I used Unique lead tape 1/4 inch....http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage-PSLT.html
