Initial Hit: My first hit wasn't pleasant. There was a distinctive 'ping' when hitting, and I couldn't get it out of my mind that I was playing full poly. Serves seemed OK, but ground strokes felt like I was lacking serious power. There was practically no feel on the volleys. I only played 1 set of doubles with it, but was not impressed at all. I put it back in the bag, thinking maybe it just needed a while to settle. Tension immediately after 1 hit:

The next day, I took another reading, just to see how it settled:

How do you know whether 52.5 is a number referring to a gut or
a poly?
A git should loose between 7 and 9 percents
PS I am NOT a stringer,I am a tennis coach
