    Name the mystery string

    the technifiber poly spin is a first generation poly string, no power, not much feel, boardly is a correct word for it, its cheap also, i bought a reel of it and use it to test tensions and setups when i get a new racquet and introduce people to poly, costs me almost nothing to use that string...

    Name the mystery string

    if not technifiber poly spin, it would be another yet similar one, i think gamma hasa similar one as well, clear yellow/orange see through poly, i could be wrong about gamma brand but i have seen a tech.poly.spin clone out there by another manufacturer, possibly wilson

    German Hex Strings = one factory

    yeah this ive always wondered myself, when buying from a unknown brand, and your provably not entirely incorrect, but i worry more when strings come taiwan or china. as for msv, i like their strings, the price is right so no major gamble there; weisscannon and topspin are some of my other german...

    Black string on mains, natural or white on crosses

    yeah i also dont like the look i string a wilson k blade tour with topspin cyber black on mains and gamma livewire (natural) on crosses, while the setup feels nice, the look is not right,,,, i like to cross it with forten nylon black, instead, it looks a lot better with all black; the forten on...

    Elbow pain with Forten Nylon 15 /Gosen Micro 17 ...on a POG

    yes, i am using the forten nylon 16g, (black) as for the string setup, while 17g is the thinner of the 2 string, the crosses are usually the ones that break first, so having the 15g forten on the crosses and the 17g gosen on the mains would last a little longer for most people

    Elbow pain with Forten Nylon 15 /Gosen Micro 17 ...on a POG

    how long are you keeping the strings?? the two you mentioneed are not long term strings they do go bad fairly quick, hence the price, but they are great/cheap strings for the short period (1 month max IMO) even if you dont break the strings they will go dead and hurt your arm, unfortunattly...

    The "Golden Sheep™" Rig

    ive tried the sample packs, along with some of the multis, they seen to be OK,,, for cross strings!!, i would provably give their multis another look, but the other strings, had nothing special to offer, their are better stuff out there for better price too
