      Hi SpinToWin, I would like to try for first time gut/poly on my ps 97S. I have Tonic+ 16 and looking for a poly. Would you be so kind to recommend me cross string? What gauge for this open pattern? Currently I am using UC at 23/22. Thank you in advance. Your reviews and knowledge are highly appreciated.
      1. SpinToWin
        SpinToWin
        I'd definitely go 16 gauge for the crosses. The exact string depends on your personal preferences. I myself probably would go for Max Power.

        Is 25/23 sounds good to you as a starting point?

      Hi STW, I have been away from the forum for a while and did not have the change to read your feedback about the new PS97s.

        When I think of tennis I think of the professional sport as a whole, and thus the structures and policies that form it are my focus. I see huge systemic problems in this area which IMO are bound to result in continuing problems.

        Well... It really isn't that hard actually. Definitely somewhat slower, but faster and with a lower bounce than clay, though slightly cushioned and somewhat sticky. I couldn't legitimately slide, only short skids really worked. It was harder on the knees than clay, though less hard than carpet. I quite liked it really and found it to be a fast adjustment.

        Greek philosophy is particularly interesting for moral questions and concerns of human interaction. Many texts were written trying to pin down what is good in respect to a human and how this state can be achieved. Essentially, if an exploration of human nature is what interests you, this is a very fitting starting point :)
