    Pacific Rackets

    I have a chance to purchase a few Pacific frames. There certainly is not much recent talk about these rackets. I remember hitting with some of these and I came away with the impression that Pacific makes very solid, good feeling frames. However, if anyone out there has any knowledge that Pacific...

    Hypothetical Racket Switch For Nadal?

    I believe if Nadal switched to the Prince 98 ESP (The Savage Banana) he would create the most unreal spin, the likes of which has never been seen. Would he still be effective? Now that may be a different story...

    Black Widow 17

    I prefer this forum in order to find out exactly how various equipment performs. The customer reviews on TW don't tell the entire story. Can the users of Dunlop Black Widow tell me the positive and negative attributes of this string? I believe it is a co-poly, and of course I know that it is...

    18x16 PATTERN?

    Here is the question- I am quite aware of how to string a 16x18 frame. Usually, with the same multi, I will string the mains a few pounds more than the crosses. What should a stringer do for the new 18x16 frames? Would it be the opposite? Thanks in advance for your input...

    Asahi

    I know that there must be some of you out there that wore tennis sneakers made by "Asahi" in the late 70s? To refresh your memory, I believe they had the image of the Japanese National Flag on the upper heel. They were all leather and only came in white.

    Wilson Nxt Control

    I am not sure why NXT Control is not talked about more often in this string forum. It seems like a very unique string that combines the elements of the most popular strings that are available today.

    Are There Any Negatives In Hybrid Stringing With Certain Patterns?

    There are several schools of thought on certain hybrid techniques. I would like insight from experienced stringers/players. I have been told by some stringers that the cross strings in a hybrid should be at a slightly lower tension than the mains. I believe this broad statement may refer to...

    Adding Lead For Strategic Purposes

    I am a 4.5 player that just started experimenting with lead placement to gain an advantage and improve my game. I used to prefer heavier, head light frames like the 6.1 Wilson BLX with an open string pattern. However, I wanted to start using a lighter frame for maneuverability. I purchased a...

    GUT vs. MULTI

    I am a solid 4.5 club player that truly understands equipment and the difference between various strings and tension. I must say though, after 3 times playing with quality gut strings, I can't see a tangible difference between gut and Technifibre X1 BiPhase multifilament. Furthermore, I feel...
