    Trying to decide between - Ezone 98, Beast 98, 360+ Speed MP, PS 98 Gen3 and Tfight 300 RS

    Hey Gazz, I own 4x 2020 Ezone 98s and had the same dilemma as you when I switched from my Tfight LTDs. Note that the new Ezone 98 is lighter and swings faster than the DR98 which as a byproduct will create more spin because of racket head speed. Also be sure to add the VCore 98, Black Ace...

    Weiss CANNON Silverstring 17g in 2020

    Interesting, I will try to get a hold of a sample pack. Thanks for pointing it out, seems like Silverstring levels of comfort but shaped.

    Weiss CANNON Silverstring 17g in 2020

    Thanks for the recommendation, ordered a reel of WCSS 17g this morning and called it a day. Realizing there’s nothing like it 13 years later.

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    Anyone using poly at 40-45 lbs on their 2020 98s? Tried 45 lbs yesterday and loved the easy depth. Had to focus a bit on footwork, any shots where I was late meant it would sail long. Good timing with topspin created heavy balls with depth that arced sharply. Happy with the comfort, aiming to be...

    Weiss CANNON Silverstring 17g in 2020

    Tried TB Soft 18 at 44 lbs, it’s much stiffer than expected. Stiffer than WCSS 17 at 45 lbs. Not comparable in my opinion, will be giving it one more day of play. I see myself ordering a reel of WCSS 17 and forgetting about it for a while.

    Best low-medium price 17g multifilament?

    Start with Multifeel 17g at your usual tension of 53 lbs. Expect to get 10-15 hours playtime with very little tension loss, virtually no string movement and no fraying until well into the life of the string. The string’s feel, control and power level are right in between where polys and multis...

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    With that much play time, it’s time for them to get cut out, soft strings will lose tension faster. They also play worse on really hot days, there’s a TWU article about that. If I recall correctly, heat will also speed up notching as it softens up an already soft string. Only get 10-12 hours...

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    Got a Yonex dampener on there, damn thing weighs 4 grams but does a great job. Definitely think the frame is tension sensitive, enjoyed poly best at 46-47 lbs. What’s your usual setup?

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    Tried 2g at the top of the hoop today, played much better and had very little harsh vibration. I was able to play with Hyper-G 18g at 48 lbs, something I haven’t been able to do in a while. Might be able to consistently use poly, time will tell. Thanks!

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    AC128EX - it’s 1.6mm thick and weighs 15g on average (measured it on 4x frames when I replaced them)

    Weiss CANNON Silverstring 17g in 2020

    Four outings of doubles, about 12 sets. Also get notching in the top third of the sweet spot pretty quickly, maybe by end of day 1 of 4, but I think that’s just a soft poly characteristic.

    Looking at those numbers, Tour Bite Soft 18g would be an ideal replacement. Play testing both side by side next week on 2020 Ezone 98s. My complaint with WCSS has always been tension loss and the numbers show a high amount of loss. If Tour Bite Soft 18g plays similar but lasts 1-2 more sessions...

    I don’t think it’s very popular in North America, I talk to people often about the strings they use and not one locally has mentioned it to me.

    No true way to know since there are no benchmarks but 3rd is my guess. BBO was launched in 1991 if one had to put a number on the beginning of it all.

    Awaiting a new string haul - what should I expect? :D

    Diamond Rough is a better version of ALU Rough in my opinion (considering longevity especially), try to string upper 40s. Too loose and it moves around like a non-poly, too tight and it feels boardy. 45-51 lbs for range.
