    Prince Lightning Pro as cross string

    Anyone else use Prince Lightning Pro as a cross string? It seems to resist locking up the string bed much better than any other synthetic gut I've tried. I have about 4 hours each on 2 rackets, one with Cream mains (very bouncy) and Ghost Wire mains. For grins and giggles I even have one...

    String creep observation

    I've read that people pull their strings (particularly polys) for 20 seconds to reduce static tension loss. I wanted to see it for myself so I taped a ruler to the wall and recorded a video of my Klippermate's drop weight arm while pulling 55 lbs of tension on a set of Ashaway Monogut 16L. Even...
