    Strings for Angell K7

    I have only used DSP in Lime thus far but no hint of arm troubles. Lime is so comfortable that I doubt it would be an issue but that’s an individual thing. I had a bit of TE with Pure Strike one7 but none since I’ve switched to Angells (including TC95, TC100, ASL2).

    Strings for Angell K7

    Enjoying Diadem Solstice Power 1.20 at 50# in my Lime right now. Good spin and feel. Not sure yet how long it’ll last but hopefully longer than others have experienced in more open patterns. Will try 17g S7T next probably.

    Off topic a bit, but finally got to rally with the K7 Lime. Really enjoying it. Using Diadem Solstice Power 1.20, I was able to generate plenty of spin. Slices were fantastic, as was the comfort/feel. Will need to eventually get some matches in before a final determination, but definitely a...

    I received mine a few months ago but have only been able to serve thus far. Serves quite well like all Angell’s I’ve played with. Can’t wait to do some match play. It’s my first 18x20 so I’m sure launch angle will be an adjustment. I’ll just get a K7 Red if I can’t gel with the 18x20 because...

    Finally got a chance to use my new K7 Lime, although I was limited to serving and simulated groundies. Feel was as fantastic as others have described. I don't want to be a prisoner of the moment, but I enjoyed the feel more than my TC95/100 and ASL2. Will have to see if that lasts after some...

    Diadem Solstice Black

    Finally got my K7 Lime back with regular SP 1.20. Color looks ridiculous so if I like it I might try the black version. Diadem claims it is softer with better tension maintenance...any feedback yet from anyone who has used it??? Doesn't appear to be available in a reel yet. Diadem Solstice...

    I really like 16g S7T in mine. Def worth a try IMO.

    I asked in PT 2.0 thread but probably better to post here... Anyone with K7 Lime and PT 2.0 experience able to offer some words of comparison?

    Diadem Solstice Black

    I’m about to try regular Solstice Power 1.20 in a new K7 Lime once my stringer opens up for business. If I like it and dislike the color, I may try the black version.

    Head Pro Tour 2.0 - Ask Us All Your Questions! (podcast now here!)

    Somewhat off topic (apologies)...but as more 2.0s start arriving, I’d appreciate if anyone can offer a few words comparing their 2.0 to the Angell K7 Lime.

    Is the TC97 unstrung SW very different from K7 series (which Angell tennis quoted as average 290, but possible to get closer to 300)? My K7 Lime unstrung SW is 296, for example. I'm still trying to suss out whether I prefer 16x19 or 18x20. I was set with 16x19 pattern until I demoed the...

    I've been staring at my unstrung K7 Lime for weeks now. Only stringer I trust in town is still shut down, pure torture. I have a feeling I'll get a K7 Red too in the not too distant future. At that point, I'll just have to finally decide which I like best: TC95, TC100, ASL2, or K7 Red/Lime...

    New Angell K7!!!

    I can confirm this, based on recent email correspondence with Angell. Also, higher SW Reds (closer to 300) are possible depending on stock.

    I always ask for final unstrung specs from Angell and they provide it rapidly. Might be helpful for you for customization purposes.

    What was SW unstrung out of curiosity?

    I feel your pain. I have a new K7 Lime waiting to be strung. I will have a low threshold for getting a Red if I like the feel of the Lime but want more spin/lower static weight.

    I received my Lime on Monday (talk about woefully tragic timing) and can corroborate the slight change in grip size relative to TC line. Truly a great looking frame. I was going to order some string but remembered I had some 1.20 Solstice Power lying around that might fit the bill. A softer...

    My return to TC100 parallels what others have said recently. S7T 16g is a good pairing. No racket has given me more free points on serve than the TC100, which is very noticeable given that my serve is far from a weapon. Really helps me to take a bit off my serve to hit spots better while...

    Out of curiosity how much static weight did 17g PTP add to your 18x20 frame?

    Target SW ~ 330, a little less would be fine if it swings as freely as others have reported. I’m trying to keep static weight below 340gm if possible, which I think should be doable with 17g poly.

    I went with 317g/296 SW racket. Thanks for your help. Hopefully I won’t have to add too much weight after adding strings...

    Silly question but lots of gurus here likely able to answer quickly: using same gauge of poly, how much difference in weight of just string would you expect going from 16x19 to 18x20 pattern (assuming same head size in square inches)? Shouldn't be more than 1-2 grams, right? I'm trying to...

    Anyone with experience with both able to answer whether K7 Lime or TC97 18x20 has more spin?

    Sounds good! I definitely hit with topspin but nothing extreme. Looking back, I was mainly using KB Max Power Rough 1.25 with my TC100 at 50#. I was playing primarily doubles at the time and just really struggled with ROS. I'll definitely give it a go with S7T 16g and probably increase...

    I moved on from my TC100 due to lack of control many months ago, but I never tried S7T 16g (or many other 16g polys, come to think of it). I'm loving S7T 16g in my ASL2 right now, so your post has inspired me to dust off the TC100 and put some S7T 16g in it.

    True, perhaps I misread the FB post. I took "no deviations" to mean no special requests such as selecting out a frame with higher than typical SW. Technically, no SW is specified so maybe this does not constitute a "specification deviation?"

    Selfishly I was just about to pull the trigger on a Red and Lime with high SW per Paul’s recommendations, so I hope he can make a quick recovery!
