    Questions on Topspin Cyber Flash 17/1.25

    Love CF, in FB or in main for me. Crisp, good feel and control, fairly soft. Using 1.30, never tried 1.25

    Soft & control oriented polys

    Recently started to use topspin cyber flash (TCF), a very nice string indeed. Comfortable for a poly yet very direct feel, good control, predictable for many hours and cost only 7$. Great value imo.

    Yonex poly tour pro 130 tension maintenance

    For me FB 125 plays great for 2h then becomes so low power that i need to restring (in open string pattern), so i started using 130 at lower tension, mid to high 40s in my frame, which works nicely - prob should try this with 125 in cross. The 130 is also a nice cross for gut in open string...

    Yonex Polytour Fan Club

    DR98 is a great frame. I personally much prefer yptp 1.25 cross on that one tho, fairly tight 16x19.

    Yonex Polytour Fan Club

    I do, in 16g. For me it has a 1h break-in period during which it plays a tad boardy (compared to proline2), after which it is perhaps the most well-rounded gut/poly hybrid i know, with excellent blend of control spin feel and arm friendly, a relatively high launch angle without being extreme...

    Yonex poly tour pro 130 tension maintenance

    @landcookie How did you like YPTP 130 ? I like it a lot as a cross, keeps tension well and has good feel, never tried FB tho.

    Prince Phantom X (New 2019/2020) - The next upgrade of Phantom 100/ 100 Pro?

    I do as well. Excellent frame (both 305 & 320), good blend of everything and certainly has enough control for advanced players, even tour pros imo. Prince no more spends big money on pros these days for whatever reason, but their frames are as good as ever.

    Cyclone Tour tension drop is insane

    Bottom line is, official numbers (tension loss) only matters if it affects the string characteristics. VCT is fairly special in that it “settles well” for a soft string and preserve most of it’s predictability and playability after its initial drop. Forget about the app, only matters how it...

    Isospeed cream or Tier one ghost wire?

    Anyone can comment on spin potential of GW vs Cream at similar gauge ? (1.27 vs 1.28 or 1.22 vs 1.23)
