    Hybrid Poly/Low Tension Kevlar?

    I have been working my way down with Kevlar from 50lb. I find the firmness of Ashway +Plus Kevlar at lower tensions becomes softer but still little to no trampoline. I do feel there is more flex but it seems to kinda bottom out once it is fully broken in. (not like full bed of poly with...

    Hi, Were you able to try the Head XT Graphene Speed PWR 115? How did you like it? I am currently am playing with the new version 360+ Speed PWR but your model is available new and good price so was wondering how it played. My version is stiffer (70 RA) so while that version is (63RA). Might be...

    Hybrid Poly/Low Tension Kevlar?

    This combo I was really pleased with. 36/41 lbs = Ashway +Plus 17g (main), 1.30 Pros Pro Eruption (Cross) Plays really nice. Softer/cushion string bed with a little pocketing, Good bite/spin The Ashway +Plus at low tension is not harsh at all. A little firmer feel but great control. I have...

    Ever String your racket w/something thats not Tennis String?

    Well I use the glue @graycrait recommended and tried on all my 3 braided fishing line. 1.40m - would not fit through any grommets 1.30m - Would not fit through grommets 1.10m - Fit through the bigger grommets but very tight with smaller/non-shared grommets. (Might be able to get it to work)...

    What are the disadvantages of using a thicker cross string?

    Were you able to try your combo with a 15g synthetic gut? I just experimented using 16g Poly Pros Pro Eruption, 15g AG tournament nylon cross. I was very surprised how solid and stable it felt. A little less spin and a little more muted but SOLID. At lower tension (40m/43c) I could take full...

    Ever String your racket w/something thats not Tennis String?

    most of the braded fishing line are hollow so you can insert monofilament that will fit. I was thinking putting some in the ends temporarily just for stringing/inserting though the grommets. Was wondering if anyone was able to string with this type of line and how they did it.

    Ever String your racket w/something thats not Tennis String?

    Were you able to try and string with this line? If so, how did you thread it since the line is very flimsy and won't go through the grommets. I have 1.4mm braided line and am trying to figure out how to string it.

    15 gauge cross string

    Yes Prince Nylon sounds similar. Have not tried VCT red yet. I do agree. I have put 6 hours so far and very little tension loss and plays very consistent.

    15 gauge cross string

    I know this is an old thread but. I did a similar combo. I had one of my Head Speed 360+ Pwr strung with full bed of poly (Pros Pro Eruption 16 gauge) strung at 45lbs. My goal is to find a string or string combo that could give great comfort and playabilty/control at lower tension. This played...

    Kevlar with multi cross low tension (Wilson NXT) is multi low tension really bad

    Thanks! I will pick up a Tourna string tension meter and use it consistently as you mentioned. Right now after restringing my cross 3 times I really have no idea what tension my main strings (started at 50lb) are now. A string meter would really help so I would know what full string job tension...

    Kevlar with multi cross low tension (Wilson NXT) is multi low tension really bad

    "3. Restrung Cross only at 30lbs (1.24 Pros Pro Istring super soft) - Will report after hitting tomorrow :) " I wanted to report that the cross string at 30lb was a little too loose for my taste. Was able to hit well but did have more trampoline than I like. Had to be more careful with full...

    Anyone using Pro's Pro Gutex Ultra 16?

    This is a perfect multi for my Head PWR Speed which already has a lot of power. Medium-Low powered is correct and because of that I was able to string at a lower tension (42lb) and still have control and power that is very soft and arm friendly. I did try Poly at this tension but found it more...

    Pro's Pro Gutex Ultra, Clay Court Plus, and other multifilaments ?

    I just switched to a Head Speed PWR racquet. I have been trying different poly string combinations at lower tensions. Just played with Ultra Gutex 1.30 strung at 42lbs was soft and played very well. It more of a control muted string. I would try it a little higher tension at 46lb next time. I am...

    AG brand tennis string?

    I know this is an old post but thought I would add... I purchased AG Poly 16g($30/reel(660)) and AG Tournament Nylon 15g($17/reel(660)). I have strung AG Poly full bed on a few of my tennis rackets. (Yonex DR 100, Yonex VCore SV 100, Head Speed 360+ Pwr) AG Poly is more of a control poly where...

    I agree. I bought my first few PP sets based on the comparison in the description. Though it was not exactly or near the comparison, it was still good string to play with. Prices are great just find what you like and stick with it.

    Slick kevlar options

    I just strung my first racquet with Crossfire +Plus and followed what Ashway recommended stringing the main(kevlar) 10-15 percent lower than the cross. I will try it the other way on the next string job (mains tighter)
