I'm not sure I understand what your saying? I think I understand though?

when I say " strings" im also referring to the pattern of the strings.

Racquet to me means weight , balance , size, materials.....the actual racquet itself.

For example spaghetti strings was a pattern as well.

There's soooooo much more to strings than the graphite.

You can make Feds racquet play similar to a babolat of you wanted to.

It's all depends on the strings.....tension , pattern , thickness, materials , hybrid etc etc etc.

There's only so much you can do with a piece of graphite.

Take a look at Borg and Mcenroe. They played with the same racquet virtually.....both wood , both the same size and pattern......

Except that Mcenroe played with extremely loose strings while Borg played with extremely tight strings. Their styles am the way they hot the ball were completely different . The racquets were almost identical but the sticks played completely differently becaise of the strings.

The same principles apply today.
