It had the most clear signal on RacquetTune that I've ever seen. Even though it is not a nylon string, it read 50.2 pounds on RacquetTune right off the stringer using the default string factor for nylon 1.3mm.

I plan on just hitting balls Sunday so I'll try out the Gamma Pro and the Ashaway for a few minutes each then.

I will be really interested in what you think about this stuff. Just posted to a TW staff C10 pro thread yesterday asking Chris what he suggested for a dead non-poly string, and this is the one he suggested. He didn't make any tension recommendations though.
