Just not sure how much would be needed to feel a difference while maintaining my arm-friendly approach.
I just started using the London about a month or so ago (count me in as a club member!) after using various versions of the Volkl V1 and then demoing a number of other sticks until discovering the London. Thoroughly pleased with it so far and my game has definitely improved.
I supply a fair amount of my own power (mostly flat with a little top as needed) and realized after demoing a London that I'd need to string up a bit to tone down the inherent power of the London. While I haven't tried gut yet, I've got mine strung with Polyfiber TCS 17 in the mains at 58, and Head RIP Control 17 at 56 in the crosses. I've had elbow issues in the past and so far this setup has been arm-friendly and produced more controllable shots for me. May experiment with some other strings that have been recommended, but this tension seems to work for me.
