    Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution

    I bought a reel of it a year ago. Strung one racket and thought I’d made a huge mistake. Tried it recently in one of my Prince TT310 rackets and absolutely love it. You have to get the tension right with this string. Initially strung too tight...it felt harsh and I didn’t notice much in the...

    Launch Angle

    What BlueB said. More open patterns generate more topspin by the mains snapping back in an upward direction across the back of the ball. That upward direction accounts, in large part, for the launch angle. Same story with different string tensions, string types, etc...they all impact the...

    Found my Holy Grail!!

    It’s an exceptional string...the most spin off any string that I have used...I have never strung it that low though.

    Solinco Hyper G vs Volkl V Square

    I never found it to be powerful. There are so many variables though - racket, tension, players style...maybe it has a higher launch angle being a slippery string...I guess it all comes down to personal preference.

    Solinco Hyper G vs Volkl V Square

    Good point...and in my experience, Volkl strings don’t hold tension very well

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    It feels more comfortable than the 65RA would suggest...feels more like a 62RA racket. The Pure Strike 17 is 67RA, but feels way stiffer than the the TT310.

    Is a starting clamp really better than a starting knot?

    I agree, it's hard enough pulling the old crosses out before restringing

    Have you customised the specs, and if so what are they?

    Is a starting clamp really better than a starting knot?

    I use a starting clamp. The way I see it, a small variance on the top string isn’t going to make much difference given that I’ve got bigger problems if I’m hitting the ball up there

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I’m serving really well with it...about the same as I was with the PS17 which I wasn’t expecting. Although, I’ve been using the Wilson Clash for the past 2 months and even a frying pan would feel good compared to that. I did add 1-2g of lead @12 which adds a touch more power and a really nice...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I’m using a full bed of AluPower soft at 48lbs. I tried isospeed cream on my PS17 and got tennis elbow. Ended up having to use natural gut / poly but still had TE due to the need to up the tension to 53lbs. There’s no way that I could have used a full bed of AluSoft in the PS17 with my arm, but...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Played a bit more with my TT100 tour 310 and it really is a great racket. I'm not sure how they have managed to incorporate elements that are usually diametrically opposed - powerful & comfortable (and more comfortable than the 65RA would suggest); Good spin but easy to flatten out the shots...

    Why? I think it’s a perfect racket for beginner/intermediate recreational players...light, easy power at low/medium swing speeds, high launch angle for easy depth. Control isn’t so good but probably less important at that level. Excellent comfort so no arm issues with any string.

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Had a better hit with the TT310 now and it plays consistent with my initial observations with the exception of volleying which is also really good now that I have gotten used to it. I ended up preferring the lead @ 12 as opposed to 3 & 9. I couldn’t be happier. It has has all of the attributes...
