Thanks for the tip - I will go with string savers - I had seen little string movement - so had not put in my Gamma savers - will try that now... also - ordered the Babolat string savers - many forum members recommend them over Gamma (?) - though they look pretty similar!
I also ordered the tough gut - at 16g - and I'll see if that helps. I'm hoping the tough gut may give me a little more control... as long as I get the same great pocketing I am currently getting - but a little less 'launch' - should be great.
Any tips for stringing gut... keeping kinks out of the string?
