    A String Like Cyclone Tour That's Easier To String

    Is there a string that plays similar to CT that's less of a pain to string? It's a great string, but if there is something that plays similar to it and is easier to string up, I'd like to try it. I want to keep comfort in mind.

    Spin To Win or Cruise Control

    On the ATP, is a 16x19 string pattern more popular or is a 18x19/18x20 more popular? I have noticed more and more young players, coming up through the rankings, to be playing with much more spin friendly string patterns. However, I believe that it was the opposite previously, where players...
