    String similar to Alu Power but cheaper?

    For anyone that has mild to a lot of arm pain, try using an anti vibrator. I used to get pain with Tour Bite in my Ultra Tour however when I tried it out with the Anti Vibrator, 0 pain. I like it :)

    String similar to Alu Power but cheaper?

    I have not tried Yonex Poly Tour Pro. I was stringing for this guy who used it in his modified Yonex DR100. From stringing it felt softer than Tour Bite and the black version felt kinda dimpled like Alu Power Rough but not that dimpled. It was really easy to weave in the crosses unlike Tour...

    String similar to Alu Power but cheaper?

    Imo depends totally on the player and what the player can afford. I mean, our team uses just Solinco Tour Bite and we have 2 players (before the new ranking system of 2019) at 500 ATP, 1 at 1400 ATP, 2 at 1600 ATP and then theres me :) But when I strung some rackets for some players at a tourny...

    String similar to Alu Power but cheaper?

    Well, I think I found my string for now. Solinco Tour Bite 1.25 strung at 46 pounds. Seems to play good in the Ultra Tour to be honest. Liked the feeling I got, a little like Alu Power. And my coach gets the reels quite cheap (75 euros a reel compared to 135 retail). Thank you very much to...

    String similar to Alu Power but cheaper?

    Well, I tried Tour Bite soft today and that is a big no no for me. Strung at 50 pounds (Used 47 pounds in 18x20 blade) and the darn thing lost tension so quick! More than Alu Power for my feeling. Will try regular tourbite tomorrow strung at 44 pounds, see how my arm holds up. I wanted to ask...

    String similar to Alu Power but cheaper?

    Yonex Duel G line vs Wilson Blade

    On the Wilson Blade I use a Grip size 2 with a wilson leather grip but I have 'fattened' up the grip so I would say a 3 but a bit thinner. I know, its stupid.

    Are my rackets dying and why does it 'my' model feel different compared to the newer model?

    Update; I snapped the strings on racket 1 and I looked under the bumper guard for inspection and I noticed a crack at 9 o clock. It only runs half way around in the frame if you get what I mean. Could I restring it?

    Are my rackets dying and why does it 'my' model feel different compared to the newer model?

    Never. Since I play on clay (not even my best surface because of the pace speed. Prefer hard) my grommets don't really grind away. The ocassional tournament on Hard I do notice that they wear away faster. On my racket 1 & 2 I notice that there are quite some cracks (or just the paint peeling...
