    Good string setup for Babolat Pure Aero?

    I think that your only good option with a Luxilon string is 4G at 50-52 lbs. The obvious reason is due to its best attributes, control and tension maintenance. If you want more pop and a livelier feel than I would concur with a previous poster and recommend Solinco Hyper G in a 17 or 18 gauge...

    Looser = Better?

    I don't know where you guys play, but the 4.5 to 5.0 level of competition for 40+ year olds in South Florida is fierce. I wish at times that some of these guys did not understand the advantages of a good co-poly! With their good form, they can now take a full swing every time without fear of...

    MY POLY REVIEWS

    With great anticipation and high hopes for Revolve Spin, I purchased a few sets and went to play a match. I was quite disappointed to find that the "spin" version was not only inferior in performance, but it felt a bit different. Wilson did something right with Revolve, but Revolve Spin is a...

    MY POLY REVIEWS

    I just noticed your post and I wanted to help by saying that you should not get Laserfiber Vorso. It is not a good string. It lacks high end spin and has little feel. It compares in no way to Tour bite. It is somewhat comparable to Y-Tex Quadrotwist, but the Y-tex product feels better. Stick...

    Why no love for the 97S?

    I use the 97 LS Black. It is even better because its ease of use. I simply put a leather grip on and it's good to go with the overall weight around 330 grams. I like my rackets head light and putting the weight in the handle accomplishes that task. You will have to try this one out if you are...

    Yonex Poly Tour Air?

    I have tried MANY polys. I did not find any positive qualities about AIR with the exception of good tension maintenance. Unfortunately, that is not good enough. There are several other smooth polys to try so you can at least cross this one off the list!

    MY POLY REVIEWS

    I have ALWAYS put an overgrip on AFTER I installed the power cap. It just makes sense. I love the flared grip that is achieved with this product. No more imprecise customization!

    Anyone using Wilson Revolve?

    Revolve is a fine string. In a full bed you will experience the snapback effect. Some say it's stiff, but I would describe it more as crisp. It is medium powered and the play-ability is above average. I much prefer Wilson Revolve to a similar Solinco string- Outlast. I really like Solinco...

    MY POLY REVIEWS

    Power caps are really good and easy to install. Tennis warehouse doesn't sell them. I think that I found them on Amazon. It is a simple but effective product.

    I'm looking for a Spin Monster.

    There is one more that I almost forgot. For the first few sets you will get serious spin from Tourna Big Hitter Black 7, and then you will lose control.

    I'm looking for a Spin Monster.

    Perhaps the best spin string, although it is quite stiff and not very comfortable, could be Technifiber Black Code 4S.

    Textured vs. Shaped strings

    Lee didn't mention a brand, but Y-Tex Quadro Twist fits this description.
