I am personally looking to use Pacific Prime Gut 17 with Outlast 18 in an 18 x 20 frame. Can someone confirm Outlast is a round string and not profiled?
I once asked TW prof about energy return, stiffness, and power.

He confirmed that stiffness is most important re power.
Only on Talk Tennis can you find people who believe
that 10 feet of lead tape has no effect on a frame...
