    Natural gut to poly

    What poly were you playing with before? And what poly are you hybridding now with gut? You have to swing out with gut/poly. May not feel like it at first but you get control from the spin. I find gut to respond very well the faster you swing, the ball flies off the racquet but it generates just...

    Best string for Speed Pro 2024

    This is what I usually play around with: - Stringing the crosses lower for more spin (ie 24kg mains, 23 kgs cross). This gives you more power, makes the stringbed more lively and may increase launch angle. Also reduces life of the stringbed IMO. Given the Speed Pro is 18x20 this may not be an...

    Best string for Speed Pro 2024

    What do you currently string at? You must be fairly happy with it to warrant getting a reel.

    Best string for Speed Pro 2024

    Definitely lasts longer than 125. Still arm friendly, and you get more control compared to 125. I have a reel of the 130 for this reason. Hard to find a similar poly which falls into the control + arm friendly category. There are better control and spin strings out there, but most of them are...

    Why not PTP 130

    So I had my TC100 re-lengthened to standard. Specs are more or less similar to my TC 95. Got to say I much prefer the TC 100 in all aspects, even control - which I never thought would be the case.

    The HEAD Prestige is BACK Back

    How does the Pro (16x19) compare to the Speed MP / Speed Pro?

    63 RA for the 95. Already Dropped tension by 5-7lbs. Just doesn’t have the same plush feel for some reason. I strung my 100 with 1.30 ptp or red code. But am now experimenting with 1.25 strings in razor code, razor soft and hyper g round.

    Recently went from a 63 RA TC 100 16x19 to a TC 95 Octane 16x19. The stringbed on the 95 feels a lot stiffer - anyone else have a similar experience?

    Ultimate string of choice !

    How long does regular razor last you? Never played ice. Razor is great if you want stiff and lower powered. It plays not too different from rpm imo but feel is very different.

    Sorry, what do you mean when yo say “more advanced string than razor code”?

    Is razor soft more comfortable (less fatigue on arm) compared to razor code?

    Never tried ice code. Razor code is stiff but does not play or feel that way in my experience. Great string.

    I’ve played both blue and white 1.25 and my experience has been the opposite. Blue crisper and gives that magic dip when fresh but white doesn’t. Are you saying razor soft doesn’t bag out as much over time?

    Ultimate string of choice !

    Ah. This is good insight. I had mine string 50/48. Maybe I’ll try stringing per your advice and see how much life I can get out of it.

    Ultimate string of choice !

    @galapagos how long did 1.25 razor code last you? I'm about 8 hours in and struggling to keep kick serves from sailing long - that's with the blue. There isn't a 1.30 razor code where I'm at, so thinking if Razor soft 1.30 might be worth trying.

    Solinco Hyper G Round

    Round strings offer advantages shaped strings do not have, particularly in the form of a predictable response. As one’s level increases this attribute will increasingly become a premium.

    Ultimate string of choice !

    I finally got to hit with Razor Code 1.25 (blue) in my TC 95. Interesting experience. Felt like there were no strings on my racquet - which is a good thing? Even though it was 1.25 I got plenty of control and it felt very comfortable!

    Didn’t you settle on technibre? @OP if you want more stability and forgiveness go tc100. Or try tc97

    Got my tc95 relengthened to standard length. Strung sw before was 339. New SW is 328 - almost bang on 10 points! I swapped to a 1.25 gauge (razor code) and the sw dropped by 2 points to 326.

    Talking about the 16x19 here. What intrigues me is that it is very powerful for a thin beam, low RA, 95 sq inch 'control' frame - compared to the Prestige, for instance. I recently picked up an old Yonex Vcore Tour 97 and even that feels way lower powered and 'control' oriented than the TC 95.

    Curious to get thoughts- where does the tc95 fall within the category of racquets these days. Big brands try to define their lines as spin, power, control / comfort oriented etc. In my mind it does everything.

    I string with Technifibre Red Code 1.3 at 53 lbs (same with mains and crosses). I restring every 10 hours - sometimes less. I'd like to go higher in tension but I start feeling it a little in my arm at 55 lbs. Today, with fresh strings, I removed lead at 3/9 and just could not keep the ball in...

    Got confirmation from Paul that specs unstrung for the TC 100 is 301 SW; ~326/331 SW strung. Even though I've added a tiny bit of lead at 3/9 I don't think it'll take the SW to 341. Ah well. I'm struggling with my TC100 lately; I have lost all confidence to hit out on them (afraid they'll...

    Absolutely. We measured it multiple times even - this is at a very reputable pro shop so I am very surprised. They did the get swingweight for my other racquets bang on which is even more perplexing! The mystery continues...

    341 is extremely high! The racquet definitely does not play like 341. It's a V3 TC100. I've sent Paul an email asking what the unstrung specs are to get some clarity. Tracked my old messages with Paul - you are correct! .25 reduces 10 unstrung SW points. So strung it would likely be slightly...
