    MSV Hex

    I find it interesting that anyone found this to be a low powered string. I had been playtesting a large number of polys in my X-1s and found that 55 lbs. had been a good starting ground for most of them (SPPP, SPPP Hex, Cyberflash, Poly Polar, Silverstring, Hurricane, Big Hitter, and the whole...

    Springy String

    First to mind would be PolyPolar. Next maybe Gosen SP.

    Poly with lots of power that is under $10

    MSV Focus CoPolymo or Focus Hex in one of their thicker iterations will give you a ton of power and stay relatively stiff. It is a copoly so it's not as stiff as the 1st and 2nd gen of polys, but it's definitely worth a try if you want some more juice. Unfortunately TW doesn't carry it so...

    Great article on Nadal's grass court debut!

    Here's an even better article explaining why Rafa is so predominate on clay. From the only trustworthy major media outlet: Enjoy.

    Out of respect to TW, I won't be more explicit. Go forth and ask the Google; it knows all.

    The SPPP is 1.18mm and the WC is 1.20mm. The SPPP is probably more of a comfort string with better pocketing (Cadillac) and the SilverString is a bit crisper with better accuracy (BMW). Both are great strings but I think MSV Hex 1.18 has them beat in overall feel, control, responsiveness, and...

    Strings for Shoulder Problem

    If you want to try a poly, I'd say the Poly Polar is the softest, most comfortable out there right now. It's not my personal cup of tea, but it might work for you. Good luck.

    I've tried the SilverString 17g and it's excellent overall; feel, power, tension stability. I've been a SPPP fan for the last few months but this one made me consider changing. I can't really decide which I like better but they are pretty distinct from each other. Definitely put it on your...

    stringing poly, clamps too tight...

    I think it really depends on a lot of variables, most notably what condition your clamps are in and how big a hitter you are. I string my own sticks with polys of all sorts and I have on more than a few occasions left slight clamp marks on the strings. I've never really had any premature...

    help on lead tape customization

    Up until recently, I would add lead at 3 & 9 o'clock positions on my X-1s until they would 'solidify'. I just figured 3 & 9 would give me the most 'plow-thru' and lateral stability, and would drag the sweetspot up toward the center, but never really tested that theory too much. A few weeks ago...
