Thanks for the feedback, Mike. I recently strung up a friend's Exo 16x18 with Volkl V-Icon 17g natural gut at 57 pounds. I took it for a spin in our last hitting session and it played great -- significantly better than the multi-strung demos I've used on and off recently. Really great bite, as you would expect with 17g gut and the 16x18 pattern, with all the feel and comfort one could ask for. By far the best set up I have felt on his racquet, if I do say so myself.
