    Switching to Luxilon Big Banger?

    Been using Pro Hurricane 16 Mains with PSGD 16 crosses strung at 57lbs/55lbs on the Aeropro Drive. Switching to Luxilon ALU Big Banger Power Rough 16L Mains with PSGD 16 crosses. Should I still decrease the Luxilon tension by 10% as recommended?

    Different Tennis Balls - How do they play?

    My son's coach gets them to bring their own balls for practice. I've bought them the Wilson US Open balls. They play competitive tennis and the circuit that they compete in uses the Wilson US Open balls. I'm wondering what difference it would make if I got them Dunlop Fort balls to play with...
