    Anyone tried out the Luxilon Smart String yet?

    Hi, I ordered 2 sets of Smart. What tension would you recommend for the HEAD Graphene 360 Instinct S. Is usually play with Velocity @ 26 kg and thats still a lot of power for me. I'm thinking about 22 kg or is higher a better option.

    Head Velocity

    Yesterday I played with a fresh natural color and this one felt little bit softer. I like the ball pocketing more then the firmer/stiffer feeling of the black color

    Head Velocity

    I A customer of mine told also it feels stiff, but DT was 34. Does the black color, how do you call it, need a break in time to feel soft. For example the first 1 or 2 hours a bit stiffer and then soft

    Head Velocity

    I´m asking this if this was correct ;) or maybe I´m wrong about the feeling. Does other players have this same feeling

    Head Velocity

    Hi, I'm reading a lot of pages but I've one simple question. I played many times with the 16G Velocity Natural. Now I'm playing with the black version 16G. Is it correct that the black one feels stiffer than the natural color??

    Question for natural gut users

    Thats really high. The EXO3 16x18 is low powered and I was thinking of 27/26 kilo. I use in my Pure Drive 2015 28/27 kilo. DT was 39.5 after 7 hours its still DT 36.1 Verstuurd vanaf mijn SM-G955F met Tapatalk

    Question for natural gut users

    I´m asking for advice. My teammate wants a FB of NG in his Prince EXO3. Currently he plays with a FB of Head Lynx 17 Yellow @ 25/24 kg. What tension you will recommend for a FB of Babolat VS Touch 135?

    Form the stringer the DT was 39,2 after a dat it was 37,4 and yesterday I played 2 matches and the DT is 36. A fullbed play very well and it gives a lot of power, feel an comfort. I used the Tonic+ Feel

    natural gut expert, fullbed and hybrid?

    I want to try a FB of NG in a Babolat Pure Drive 2015. Is 28 / 27 kg a good start for the amount of power or is a higher tension even better?

    Advice NG Hybrid for PureDrive2015

    Thanks guys for the updates. Maybe a fullbed of NG is a option to try... What tension you recommend to start. I'm thinking about 28/27 kg with stringsavers.

    Advice NG Hybrid for PureDrive2015

    Yesterday I've played my first 2 matches with the VS Touch 16 / Hawk 17 @ 26,5 / 25 kg. What a excellent feeling. It played very soft comparing a FB of poly. Im gonna test how long it last 15 - 20 hours. After cutting out the crosses I'm gonna turn the racket and string the NG one more time...

    How Long does Natural Gut / (co)Poly Hybrid Last?

    Hi Mark, you are thinking about Kevlar instead of poly. Which brand of kevlar you wanna use and what is the difference in tension you gonna use..

    Advice NG Hybrid for PureDrive2015

    Hi MarK, thanks for your post with your advice. First of all I string my own racquets, so its possible to restring only the crosses. I've never done that before... Is it easy to do. My knots are the Wilson Pro Knot so I think its easy to remove the old crosses. How often you chance the...
