    Cost of Stringing Survey

    I’m admittedly biased because I’ve used 18x20 frames for roughly half the time I’ve played tennis but I don’t think they’re that bad to string. A Prestige Mid with full poly is not the best but most of the 95”-98” frames are not much harder to string than 16x19’s.

    The gut/poly thread

    uncoated gut is amazing, but will unravel and snap quickly.

    Ultra Tour String Playtest Thread

    Both sets were given to me for free, and I felt black gut would look weird with any other poly

    Jolly's Polys

    Outlast, RCW, and RPM Rough are the only I’ve tried in a 1.20. I think all three lasted longer and performed better for what I like.

    Jolly's Polys

    Because I’ve played 8 sets to 3 reels of each string. You obviously struggle to understand the difference between subjectivity and objectivity, which is made worse by the fact that you can’t disagree with someone without being a jerk.

    Jolly's Polys

    Outlast, Black5Edge, Typhoon, ALU Soft, Adrenaline Rough, Element, Red Code Wax, and RPM Rough are all strings which, in my experience, play better and for longer than Hyper G. Spin is a byproduct of technique Shaped strings might grab the ball well to start, but after an hour or so the edges...

    I’ll make sure to quote this when you change your mind again. I’ve strung and played more Hyper G than most people on this board (over 30 reels in a couple years) it’s nice, but there’s better stuff out there.

    That poster has a new, favorite, best string setup every few weeks/months so their statement is rather ironic.

    Best natural gut currently

    Having played with VS pre-stretched before, I don't think they feel similar, but that's only my own opinion.

    Playing singles against former Top-300 dude this afternoon

    Sounds like a very cool experience! The best players (ranking-wise) I've ever faced are a girl ranked inside the top 500, and a guy who made it to ~400. Aside from the obvious differences (namely footwork, conditioning, and mental strength) the biggest takeaways from my matches have been that...

    Cost of Stringing Survey

    I have access to places where I can get NXT and similar for well under retail, but I still mark them up a bit in price because they're still expensive relative to what other strings cost at wholesale prices.

    Best natural gut currently

    In my experience VS actually felt stiffer than Wilson.

    Cost of Stringing Survey

    Nope. Never had anyone ask for gut. That'd be a different matter. $25 as in ALU, RPM, and various Multi's that have the audacity to charge close to $20 a set.
