    Tourna Big Hitter Black 7

    I still have a reel of it and use it from time to time. I've moved on to Black Knight as my go-to.

    A string you had such high hopes for but was a complete bust...???

    I got a reel of it for 50 bucks and still didn't use it.

    I think I just showed my age... *facepalm* I guess the Levensteins aren't relevant anymore.

    RPM Blast--- Biggest price/shame ratio I found. Durable as all hell but I'd rather play with kevlar. Only string I can remember that I cut out voluntarily. Honorable mention to Diadem

    On the other end.... String that just blew you away and you did not see it coming... ???

    Yes, Iontec was great, both the pissy salmon color and black, but I def preferred the black. I don't touch multi so I can't comment much there but the natty gut they had was so cheap you may as well have sprung for it if you enjoy the playstyle.

    I was a big fan of Discho. Not the best for hybrids but a great training string.

    First String Job

    Yeahhh the barrel starting knot is the way to go for crosses. You can start with the PK but I've always just went barrel. A little tip for when you do, hold the tail end that gets fed through the barrel with pliers as you tension your first cross. Slippery strings can take up the slack of the...

    Dollar for Dollar Black Knight is the most durable consistent string I've come across. T1 is AWESOME with 30% discounts. On a reel it's worth just cutting out when you feel like you're losing the magic.

    Isospeed used to make a triangle string.. PITA on your fingers and dive bomb spin for the first 30 mins then total trash. I'm giving FW another shot. I have it crossed in one stick and it wasn't too bad.

    WCS is super stable and consistent but I was very disappointed when I tried it. It just didn't gel for me. Same with Signum pro. I found that slick hard poly worked well even if the tension maintenance isn't the best. Would be curious to see it with Black Knight.

    @op, look up a parnell knot-- may be spelled differently. It'll change your life.

    So much fun. Sand. Sun. Music. Drinks. Bikinis... I wish it would take off in the US more. Currently the major tourneys are in Cali, Florida, and NY. Huge in South America and Europe.

    Talking about using the grip on my beach tennis frames. Beach tennis is super quick and high volume of hits/volleys but it's exactly that, volleys. No big looping forehands with top spin which would torque the grip in your hand making it rip. The most topspin you'll see is on a serve and it's...

    J011y, you're getting soft in your old age...I remember the days when we had to walk uphill twice in the snow... when warmup was "go" speed... when men were men and sheep were scared.

    Someone tossed me a 30 pack of Tourna Tac. I always say "If it's free it's for me, I'll take three"--- but I'm finding that I'm coming to like the Tac. I've always played SuperGraps by choice and it took me a couple plays to get used to it but it's pretty good. They rip within the time it takes...

    Stockness plez. 1/2 is standard but I can swing the 5/8 if you have one lying around. Don't they say that the 5/8 is better for ohbh traditionally?

    Sounds like Head finally came to their senses and made the prostock that's been hiding behind paint jobs all these years. @J011yroger order me one. I'll give it a few slaps, can't resist me a good redhead. Ed has been playing the mp and loves it. Literally was a cortisone shot to his backhand.
