The Yonex Polytour Spin (48/46) made a really good impression! Nice pop, good spin! Easy on the elbow.
The polytour spin/Og sheep micro (50/50) was my first hybrid. It was the easiest on my elbow, had excellent power and good spin. Was very close to the full bed polytour spin. There was some string movement though- is that normal for a hybrid?
It's pretty hard looking for the right string. All the switching around messes up your game. I'm going with that excuse for playing horribly today. Sprayed balls everywhere. Ugh.
I used PolyTour Spin at 50, full bed, one piece stringing. OMG, it was too much pop for me. But in a Yonex EZONE Xi 98, the string (two pieces) at 45 is peeerrrrfect. To each his own!
