    Low, low tensions. 30lbs feels great. 20lbs pretty good, too

    I have recently strung up a few Angell racquets with fb of co-poly at low 30's (33/31) on K7 Red (PP Red Devil 1.19), TC100 (PP Eruption 1.18) & TC95 16x19 (PP Eruption 1.18) - i liked the feel and the ball pocketing. However, i didn't quite liked the TC95 when i had it on 31/29 setup with the...

    Cool - I might try the half way point and see (3lb) lol Btw this is for fb co-poly setup. Just had a thought that maybe I should try different tension setup in different head sizes. I had the same tension when I had fb Halo 3 on both TC100 and TC95.

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    quick q - re: Eruption 1.18, how many hours does it usually last? I have it in my usual racquet and it has about 8 hours on it already. This being my first fb of poly in over 10 year, I do not know how to tell it I should change it. It still plays alright and according to StringMeter, the...

    Thank you for the quick response. I will do the 2nd TC95 with the same sting but 2lbs less on the mains and crosses and have a go at it to see what the differences would be. Lol. Thanks.

    Question - with everything being equal, would it be wise to drop the tension say by a couple of lb for TC95 if the setup on TC100 is what is preferred?

    i thought about the TC97 16x19 before as i am (still) loving the TC95 16x19 atm - just going though different strings and tension setups. i heard the TC95 and TC97 flex differently and the TC97 seems to be similar to Head Prestige, which i used to use (Flexpoint Prestige MP). love love to hear...

    Entry level machine or go for Stringway (opinions needed)

    Congrats. The first few is the best learning curve. I remembered my first attempt was on a 18x20 On an X-2 and took me just over 2 hours, that’s with trying a few times with the knots on a 2 piece job. I have done quite a few now and I always take my time as I don’t need to speed up for the...

    Make your racket look better or different with electric tape.

    Lol - I thought OP was talking about matching the electrical tape (aka grip finish tape) with the colour of the string bed..... that’s what I usually do anyway lol

    Synthetic gut Mains / Polyester Crosses Club

    on my Angell racuqets, i have only tried PP Syn Gut 16 @54lb/PP RD 1.19 @48lb on the TC100 63RA and thought it played nicely. then i strung ti up with a fb of PP EUrption 1.18 @ 33lb/31lb and the playability and pocketing feel was amazing, have stuck with it since. done the same with the TC95...

    Quest for a soft and arm friendly poly - please

    I think now Eruption comes in green and black versions - i am using the green one (not sure if the black plays the same). I have not tried it at the 40's tension range, so cant comment. i went straight from multi or syn gut setup straight into the soft co-poly at low 30's tension range. The...

    Quest for a soft and arm friendly poly - please

    I strung up my TC100 63RA last week with Pro’s Pro Eruption 1.18 at 33lb/31lb - amazingly it is very arm friendly and played nicely during the two hour league match. This is the first time back to poly for over ten years and it was a nice experience. I have done the same on the TC95 16x19 63RA...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    I am keen to change out the fb of Bab Addition 16 (multi) on a Babolat Pure Aero Tour 2016 to either RD 1.19 or Eruption 1.18. The Addiction 16 was initially strung at 48lb and it was kinda nice to hit with it, it is in the low 40’s atm I think. So with either the RD or Eruption, what tension...

    Babolat RH12 Bag Wish List

    i have a 2019 RH12 in white and gold colours (Wimbledon edition) - i quite like it so far. the compartments are huge and the zippers works well so far. there are 2 x thermo compartments for the racquets with zippers goes over the edge, so makes putting in/taking out racquets easy. the shoe...

    Switching from the Pure Aero?

    i have a fb of multi (Bab Addiction 16) on 2016 PAT @ 48lb initially. it is probably in the low 40's now - it plays quite alright and comfortable. the ball lands deeper, so some adjustments needed, but it was fun.

    So I am officially in love with fb of soft co-poly (1.18mm & 1.19mm gauges and round & shaped types) at very low tension. My previous string setup were fb of multi or syn gut. Strung up K7 Red, TC100 63RA and TC95 16x19 63RA at 33lb/31lb and they felt amazing, very nice pocketing. Had some good...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    Has anyone tried the Eruption black? I have strung up a couple of Angells with fb of Eruption green 1.18 at low tension and it felt amazing. Just wanted to know if the black colour plays the same, so I can at least have options other than green colour. Also, the 1.19 RD is also pretty sweet...

    Tension is not as significant a spec as you would think

    That is true. I have recently fell in love with low tension on fullbed of soft co-poly, in the low 30’s range. It is as comfortable as fullbed of syn gut at mid 50’s on the exact same racquet/same setup

    yes it is, even more so with the mix of the coloured frame wraps - wished Paul has more grommet colours to choose from lol.

    question - with the string drying out, what is the preferred way to store the strings. set vs reel of different types of the strings?

    The most comfortable racket you've played with?

    100% agree with this. waiting for the 2nd one to arrive, so i can match both. i was very close to get a TC97, but changed my mind & kept the K7 Red. i strung up K7 Red with Pro's Pro Red Devil 1.19 at 33lb/31lb just for fun and the first few mins was strange, but it felt great after that. the...

    The most comfortable racket you've played with?

    woo - what setup do you have atm? i have been using soft poly in low tension lately on the K7 Red and TC100 63RA - loved the feel of them both. My next experiment would be the TC95, so am interested in your setup/thoughts. thanks.

    hi, quick question. i would like to match 2 x Angell racquets, both same model/version. First one - 310g & 315mm (9pts hl) Second one - 320g & 310mm (10pts hl) If i open the pallet on the second one, which weight should I remove? I recall seeing a pic of the Angell pallet/weight system and...

    Thanks for that. Does that mean it should be better to have the BO as the main and the syn gut as the cross?

    To be fair though, with the frame wraps, the V2 can be made to look like a Blade, Burn, Ultra and RF97.... lol
