    Head Gravity Pro / Wilson Champions Duo Strings

    Its definitely not a hack, pretty standard stuff

    Head Gravity Pro / Wilson Champions Duo Strings

    That is a good point and I forgot to mention in my post that I use a floating clamp drop weight machine so the excess string would be lesser than a higher end machine for sure

    Head Gravity Pro / Wilson Champions Duo Strings

    I pretty much have to use a bridge for the last cross pull 99% of the time that I use any packet of strings for my GPro. The only time I don't have to is if I have a reel where I can add a couple more inches.

    Head Lynx Tour 1.20

    TW had it at one time, but looks like its not in stock anymore. I was waiting a long time for this string to come to the US as well but after trying it I'm not really that impressed. I didn't experience that much difference 1.25 and 1.20 for some reason. I still have a extra set of it that I...

    Comparisons between Toroline Caviar and Mayami Tour Hex?

    Maybe try a hybrid with TH in the mains and a multi or syn guy in the crosses. You'll more than likely get the great spin and control of the TH with some more pop.

    Comparisons between Toroline Caviar and Mayami Tour Hex?

    I've said it before on other Tour Hex threads but this is probably the lowest powered poly I have ever used, which is probably why it has outstanding control.

    Tennis Warehouse playtest: Hyper-G Round 1.25

    Confidential actually sits between TB and Hyper G as far as stiffness goes where TB is the stiffest and Hyper G the least stiff and Confidential stiffer than Hyper G.

    Blue - the color of low power polys?

    Maybe my theory only pertains to shaped blue poly's?

    Blue - the color of low power polys?

    I believe we all know that similar poly string colors are associated to different power levels/liveliness: Green/Yellow - More Lively, Grey - Middle of the road, Black - Dead and of course there are many others. My theory recently after trying a few Blue polys is that they are all much lower...

    What string is this?

    I would be leaning toward Element then, because there aren't many champagne/bronze colored strings put there other then Lynx Tour, Element, and RPM Power.

    What string is this?

    I don't think so, I have a set of Adrenaline right here and it is more of a greyish silver color. My guess was going to be Head Lynx Tour - Champagne but the string in the pic looks round where lynx tour is shaped. Can you tell if its round or shaped? I would say either that or Element

    Asics Gel Resolution 9

    I am going to say this, and I truly hope the Asics Corp is seeing this somehow, but the GR9's are by far the best tennis shoe I have ever worn. It's kind of like they listened to all of the problems that people mentioned about the GR8's and fixed them for the GR9's. Literally no break in period...

    Asics Gel Resolution 9

    I find that with the 9's the material on the top of the foot seems to be softer and flexier than with the 8's where in the 8's it was more stiff and caused some issues with the top of my toes

    Asics Gel Resolution 9

    None, but I also didn't have any heel slippage with the 8's either for whatever its worth

    Asics Gel Resolution 9

    so far the shoe is retaining its original shape for me, and I've had mine for over 8 months now. This shoe required no break in for me has still retained its original structure and has not really stretched out at all for me.

    Your favorite polys in 18x20 rackets

    Speaking of soft, I actually prefer Tour Bite soft in my GPro. I just switched over to TBS from TB and it is night and day. TBS gives you a bit more access to easier pop than TB which for the Gpro is badly needed. HGS was actually nice in this racquet as well, but I found it to be just a bit to...

    Head Lynx Tour 1.20

    I just tried Lynx tour 1.20 in my 360+ GP and it feels very similar to 1.25 to me. For whatever reason I just can't get the RPMs on the ball with this sting that I can with other similarly shaped grey strings. In my opinion I believe it is because the surface of Lynx Tour is just not slick...

    Most spin-inducing string?

    GC is, without a doubt, the sharpest 4 sided string on the planet. Not only is it tough on the finger pads, but also when you are stringing the crosses it is so dang sharp that it shaves off strands from the mains when you pull. I mean look at this thing! I still have a set that has been sitting...

    Toroline

    I can't speak for what is available in Europe or not, but Game Changer is no where near close to Wasabi. Game Changer is an extremely 4-sided/edged, extremely sharp, string that is in the mold of Volkl V-Square but even sharper. Wasabi is more closer to your standard 6 sided rounded edge poly...

    String in dark red?

    this is Y-tex Hexagon X and its actually darker red than this pic looks in my opinion I know someone else mentioned it already, but more than likely Yonex Poly Tour Spin G is probably what you are looking for, although just be careful because there are 2 colors, Orange and Dark Red

    Maximizing the power, spin, and launch angle of Head Gravity Pro with a string setup

    Really the only way to get higher launch in this 18x20 pattern is using a thinner string, which will give you the power, spin, and launch you are looking for but in turn the tension maintenance is much worse. Buy yourself a reel and a stringer and problem solved!

    Maximizing the power, spin, and launch angle of Head Gravity Pro with a string setup

    FWIW I have been using Tour Bite 17 in my GP 360+ for a couple years now and I enjoy it. That being said, its not a powerful setup as I look more for control, but it has a decent launch angle and plenty of spin. The tension maintenance isn't great either, but you get about 8-10 hours of...

    Favorite knot

    all kidding aside, I'm a straight meat and potatoes guy, I just stick with the double half hitch, never had any issues with it. I have tried every knot mentioned here and they are all good for sure, but I have had a few occasions with the Parnell and Pro where the second loop has a bit more...

    Your favourite socks

    I always found thorlos to be too thick for me, I seem to need something in the middle and I think that is why the Solinco's are perfect for me. They aren't too thick or thin and they have cushion in the proper (tennis related) places. I found that when I wear the throro's there would be too much...

    Your favourite socks

    Solinco socks for the win for sure. I have at least 20 pairs. A pair will last about 5 or 6 months playing 2-3 times a week but I haven't found anything else that comes close to comfort and performance

    Asics Gel Resolution 9

    same here, stayed with the same size as my 8s and they fit perfect

    Slightly softer + spinnier than Black Code

    couple options I have used, Dunlop Black Widow and Tourna BHB7

    Clamps are stripping string - gamma x

    definitely possible, but she mentioned it preventing him from pulling tension and I was thinking of the gripper as the clamps aren't really used during tensioning other than unclamping and clamping again. I could be totally wrong.
