    What Strings Should I Try Next?

    How often are you willing to restring? If I am playing, I restring after a single use. If just practicing, I will restring after 2 or 3 uses.

    Anti fog product recommendation

    Straight dish washing liquid on the lenses (liberally), allow to dry, then polish off. I tried it on my glasses and it seems to work.

    Shoes “Dead” Before Outsoles are Worn

    Shoe support depends on how often you use them. I was playing 5 - 7 days a week, sometimes twice a day. I don't have a push and play type game. So me getting new shoes 3 - 4 times a year I expect. The shoes would look good, just the support is gone.

    Shoes “Dead” Before Outsoles are Worn

    I'd normally go through 3 to 4 pairs of my favorite shoes (Kswiss: Preventor "high top", then Ultrascendor mid) a year. This was and is the norm for me. It is the same with now the Prince T22 mid. Now that Kwsiss is coming back with Ultrascendor, I will be going back when they return with...

    What tension when stringing with Kevlar?

    I once used Prince Problend 16ga (79 lbs) due to breaking strings, then I found how much control it gave me. Now I use kevlar/syn-gut and string high just for the control. I now string Ashaway Kevlar 17 and Prince Syn Gut/duraflex 17 between 76 - 79 (currently at 77lbs). If I'm playing I only...

    Poly/Gut vs Gut/Poly

    The mains are the dominant strings. Whatever feel you're looking for play those strings in the mains. The ultimate test is to play'em.

    A Stringer returns your racquet with Curved cross strings,what next?

    WOW, never heard that one before... I would never think about asking that question. All the people I string for would look at me like I'm crazy... (Ahhh, how do you like your strings straight or curved?) Don't even sound right...

    A Stringer returns your racquet with Curved cross strings,what next?

    I have a constant pull machine (not drop weight) and you still have to hold the string straight. There maybe minor straightening after the stringing is complete. You loose tension by straightening the strings after the string job is complete.

    Any Kevlar users out there? About to try it and have a couple questions.

    I also used Prince ProBlend. Wanted to move to a 17ga... was not aware of Ashaway Kevlar till I started stringing approx. 2 years ago. These days Ashaway Kevlar 17 and Prince SynGut w/Duraflex is all I use.
