Very interesting indeed and quite hard to put into practice given the tiny small dwell time.

Loving the yonex! There the most comfortable strings I've played with by a long shot (no pun intended). Durability is pretty good as well! Will be trying the 1.20 next.

How are you finding the strings?
I don't have a very good barometer because I just haven't tried that many strings. I previously was using SPPP 1.18, the only poly I have hit with any regularity. I know the gauges aren't really similar, but I volley MUCH better with the yonex. That was always my main complaint with a lot of poly strings, and the yonex has a lot of touch for a poly. I don't think I will even try the thinner gauge when it becomes available, I will just stick with this one.
ATP: Topspin is OP. Devs please nerf.
My Tennis: My serve has too much topspin and my forehand not enough.
