Hey guys.. I would like your input.
I've tried nxt16/velocity17 at 24/23kg (53/51lbs) and like it very much on my 18x20.
I've also tried v17 fb which I've also liked but not over 22kg (49lbs) (it feels too stiff for me above that).
If I was to try v17/nxt16 what tension do you think I should...
Thank you very much. This is very helpful!
I am actually thinking of using them as mains in a multi/poly hybrid too. May I ask which poly you used as crosses? Durability is not my main concern as I am not a string breaker and I will be using this in a 97 sqin 18x20 racquet.
Could you compare and contrast these? Particularly interested in comfort, power and spin.
I've tried only velocity natural 16 and 17. I like very much the muted response and spin but I would like a little more feel and comfort. Any ideas?
I have only tried the AK Pro CX once as a cross to powerful multi mains in a 18x20. Very nice slick cross but I enjoyed it only for the first three hours of play. It had noticeable notching and became stiffer after that.
I am beginning to think that what you describe may be the cause of this change in feel with this particular string. I just didn't expect it to happen so rapidly..... It certainly happens with some other strings I have tried e.g Gosen AK Control 17 with which I had a completely locked...
I've noticed this with the poly strings I have used but what about multis and synthetic gut?
I strung my Ultra Tour with some Gosen AK Pro CX 16G at 23kg and for the first three hours of play it was very nice, but after the 3hr mark the sweet spot started to get smaller and smaller and the...
I was actually thinking to try it in the following setups:
a. as mains with cream or silverstring or maybe velocity in the crosses.
b. as crosses with hdx 16, velocity 16, or mantis comfort synthetic 16 in the mains.
all in 18x20 pattern.
WC silverstring is kind of crispy but not really. Also it's not spin friendly at all. It's very comfortable and it has very good control though. Playability is good for around 6-8 hours for me.
I am very curious about Gosen AK control myself and will try it in a couple of weeks.
I think a...
I have some on the way to try too. Could you share info such as racquet, string pattern, and tension(s) used? Also could you compare the comfort and power to some other strings you have used (even poly it doesn't matter).
I did that but the recommendation of TA is always to string the crosses a little higher than the mains for UT.... but for my gut/poly hybrid tests I would like the gut (mains) tension higher than the poly (crosses). I contacted Fred via email and his recommendation was to string poly crosses...
