      Was wondering if you could advise on Luxilon Element? Was hoping this string might give me some extra pop and spin. I realize spin is 95% technique, but was looking for that special softer, powerful and spin friendly string. Our stringer has it on a reel at the shop, but my concern is that nobody is stringing it. Might it be less durable, that is why nobody is stringing it? Thank you so much!

        I've never played with Luxilon Element so I cannot specifically comment on it.
        I can say that from my experience, and in my opinion, the really expensive polyester strings are not worth the extra cost.
        I usually do not string a full bed of polyester but when I did I found amazing pop and spin from Babolat RPM blast. I stopped doing it because of cost.

      Hey there, I'm noticing you've used the 6.1 95s and pure aero. I'm currently hitting with the pure aero but have a chance to pick up a few 95s' from a friend. Do you find the aero better in every way or do you ever consider going back? Any helpful comparison points would help. Thanks!

        For me the Pure Aero works better. I find the frame more stable and I'd suspect because its a wider and ticker frame than the Wilson. The 95s is a great racquet but I found it was easier for my one handed backhand to get pushed around vs the Pure Aero.

        Thank you!
        I wish I had not pulled from singles looking back.
        I just wanted to really try and win doubles.
        Hindsight 20/20 I guess.
        You look like you are having a good year at 4.5 so far, hope you are enjoying it and I hope to be there next year with you!

        Yea, you definitely could have won those matches but then you never would know about doubles. That loss in doubles was one that could have gone either way 50/50.

        Not too bad this year. Trying to make it to pok-e-jo's for singles and doubles and it's gonna come down to how well I do at sectionals in september. I'm sure you'll be here next year. good luck in league playoffs!

      If you are referring to the string setup in my signature its great and my default string job for this frame.

      I get good pop and spin with it and it lasts about 10 hours before breaking.

      Hey, how do you like that string setup with the new PS97?

    The only thing that could be disappointing about seeing cheerleaders is not having a boob pop out during their routine.
