    The "String your Poly at 40" challenge thread

    What some think is great others will think not so great. Ive tried low tension with different strings and don’t care for it, if using a Kevlar main low tension is fine but not with any other string. I much prefer poly between 65-70 lbs.

    The "String your Poly at 40" challenge thread

    I’ve strung poly at 30,40,45, 50,55,60,65,70. I can play with any of those tensions especially when brand new, but do not like below 55lbs. Play much better with poly above 60lbs. But if some like low tension and can play well with it then great go for it, the lower tension is easier on the arm...

    Hitting Through the Court vs Topspin Drive

    This is a great explanation and at times I can hit the the fade spin and it definitely works. But I haven’t figured out how to hit like that more consistently, I end up going back to over the top conventional topspin.

    Myth busted. Poly is way more powerful than Multi

    I’ve found poly to be more powerful than a lot of multis also. It seems like multis or synthetic gut has a restricted flight built into them but polys don’t.

    Do you like oddball strings?

    When you change to a new string job every half hour it’s completely different than what us amateurs use, like using poly for many days or weeks. There is no comparison because even a string that doesn’t last very long can play good when fresh. For years Rafa used a first generation poly I forget...

    Do you like oddball strings?

    I’ve used poly for years between 60 and 70 lbs. and still do when I use poly but using Kevlar presently. I also use light rackets with high tension poly and no problems so far. My hitting partner uses Luxilon BB Ace at 70 lbs and has used that set up for years.

    Do you like oddball strings?

    I agree I go back and forth between Poly and Kevlar and end up going back to Kevlar. Get tired of poly changing its playability and feel so quickly. Right now I’m using what many would consider oddball which is 17 gauge Ashaway Kevlar main with head 16 gauge Rip Control with both at 55lbs. This...

    Can a 4.0 beat a 5.0 ?

    This is an accurate description of what a 4.0 would do against a 5.0.

    Can a 4.0 beat a 5.0 ?

    Lol sorry but that is not going to happen, the 5.0 basically has no weaknesses compared to a 4.0. The 4.0 would be lucky to get 2 games a set.

    Can a 4.0 beat a 5.0 ?

    The point you are missing is that a 4.0 player is never going to be in the set let alone close at the end of it.

    Can a 4.0 beat a 5.0 ?

    In our club leagues there is no longer a 5.0 level and there are 4 doubles teams and only 1 singles player. The league’s are hard up for players so even if you win most of the time they will not bump you up.
