    Lead tape placement - can it be placed on the outside of the frame?

    Yes. Pros routinely put lead under the grommets. Sent from my Lenovo TAB S8-50LC using Tapatalk

    thinking of weighting up an Extreme Lite to get more comfortable tweener racquet

    Consider starting with the Xi 100 lite instead...if not for my Radical/Extreme obsession, would be playing these with just some handle weight...low flex but great power and surprisingly good feel... Sent from my MI MAX using Tapatalk

    Don't think mistake, think opportunity. If you love it, happy times. If you don't, you'll have added to your mental database of what works for you.

    Great to hear that you found your go-to string. If I were a smart man, I would just stick with Plus Power.

    Keep forgetting to mention, but Black Force 1.14 is awesome in the Microgel Extreme MP. Strung at about 42 on a LO machine, it makes a crisp but spinny package with great control.

    Used Kevlar for 3 straight years..no TE...use full poly job one day: TE

    One of the best Kevlar values out there: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Forten_Kevlar_Thin_Blend_String/descpageACFORTEN-THIN.html

    86 pound mains? I believe your arm is made of Kevlar.

    I find it soft (rubbery thud), medium power, and durability as good if not better than OG Micro and Genesis Blizzard. No-brainer indeed.

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    I've played full beds of the black, grey, yellow (and white) and none of them rub off on the ball. I find the string quite good overall, and use it whenever my elbow needs a break from poly. Not quite OG Micro or PSGD quality, but close enough for me.

    Feels like it grabs more, but can't say it's a dramatic difference. I prefer round polys in full bed and textured in hybrids (except for the awesome BHBR), so tough to judge. Sorry I can't offer more clarity than that...

    For anyone having slight arm issues with Plus Power, Intense Heat makes a good substitute and provides a nice little boost in power while delivering noticeably better comfort. With my elbow barking slightly from PP, I am switching to Heat 17 for the time being.

    Worth trying for sure. Although I have not hit Lethal 8, I have used BO quite a bit and it's really nice. I prefer it in a hybrid setup for better feel, but you can still feel it grabbing the ball and providing good feedback. Sent from my MI MAX using Tapatalk

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Babolat Project One 7 racquet

    Well done, man. You set the bar for the other playtesters.

    Good technique overall, but you need to bump tension on your last mains to compensate for knot loss.

    Best midsize rackets in your honest opinion :)

    Excellent stick. Volley butter, serious precision, and comfortable as a feather bed.

    I thought you were straight-up trolling, son. But then I checked their site, and there it was. Legendary.

    Been using Super Tacky for more than a year, and could not be happier. Doesn't last that long, but I can afford to throw on a new one whenever I want. Also starting testing of PP 1.10 aramid (Kevlar) crossed with PP syn. Strings up nice and will be using exclusively this week.

    Maybe ask Breakpoint...he seems to have a lot of experience with mids. For me, as follows: PS85 (but way beyond my skill level) Volkl V-Engine mid Yonex RDX-500 Dunlop AG100 Dunlop 4D100 Sent from my SM-T705 using Tapatalk

    What kind of fragile strings does Dimitrov use?

    Could not agree more. It's the rare thread here where you get high-level stringing pros like this to chime in, and no one comes along and ruins it with trolling. Thanks a lot, guys!

    Tired of Tennis

    Sorry to hear your current situation doesn't allow you time and opportunity for tennis. If you indeed step away from the game and stop posting, maybe you can take solace in the fact that you have been one of the very best contributors to this forum over the years.

    That's a good point. Gut is easier to mistreat than any other string for sure.
