Silverstring doesn't play line Scorpion in my view.

Personally if I wanted to stiffen Scorpion, I'd either change the tension or introduce a stiffer cross string.
Torres, that's my impression that at 53 is boardy. however it depends on the racquet you play with. i switched to the microgel prestige mp about 9 months ago and it's stiffer than the pure strom gt tour my previous racquet. also I string the racquet with a drop weight machine which I don't know if it makes any difference.
