    Prince Premier Control 16 vs Lightning Pro 16

    I am currently using a hybrid of Oehms Alu Pearl Rough 16L/ Prince Premier Control 16 Black in my Head Speed 360+ MP and I love it. Good control yet easy on the joints. I have played with PPC 16 Black and Natural with the Black producing more spin and dwell time. Was thinking of using Lightning...

    How tacky is it to use Adidas and Nike products on the SAME day

    I actually try not to match either color or brand wise... i don't know how many times I see a guy wearing the latest nike kit with matching nike shoes with 9-pack bag and then proceed to play like a least they are having interest in tennis and then hopefully work on their game!

    What's your favorite Poly and Syn Gut hybrid?

    for me.... Pro's Pro Blackout 1.28mm / OGSM 1.20mm (natural,ice, yellow) at any tension (usually around 50/52). I have used this in (3) rackets and have found this is the setup I really like..

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    for me the Pro's Pro Syn gut isn't good as cross.. it's not that slippery.. on the other hand OGSM is much better as a cross... I like using Blackout 16G with OGSM Natural 17.. it's good for about 3-4 hours then the mains bag out..

    Powerful polyester

    in my experience Signum Pro Firestorm 16G is a powerful poly. I can't imagine what the thinner gauge version plays like..

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    I tried it thinking it would be similar to Signum Pro Firestorm as it is touted. I used both 16 for Firestorm and Cyclone Power. Firestrom has a lot of powere where the strings just jump off the stringbed.. too quickly sometimes very lively.. where as Cyclone Power didn't have that same power...
