    ECO Power Weight

    Where can I go to find the weight of Luxilon Eco Power? I'm usually a full bed velocity player (17g). And I recently wasn't pleasantly surprised throwing in a full bed of Eco Power. However (and I wonder if it's my mind), it felt a little a little heavier.

    Looking for today’s Wilson Pro Open

    My favorite setup as a competitive junior was the Wilson nPro Open and BLX pro open with Luciano and sensation strung around 55. After 4 years away, I want to compete again but need help finding something comparable. So far I’ve enjoyed the clash 100 v1, but the fact that it seems no advanced...

    ALU Power RG (Roland Garros) feedback/reviews

    So I think this string looks really cool. I, admittedly, am into a good aesthetic for string, racquets, all my gear. :rolleyes: But there are very few reviews of this string. Its a unique (1.28) guage and again the color is cool. Slightly brighter than element...? Anyone have experience on...

    Fake Luxilon ALU Power

    I just purchased a reel of Luxilon ALU power but I have a couple concerns. For starters, its only a 200m reel. Secondly, the text on the strings just says Luxilon ALU Power 16 and then the string of letters. Are there any dead giveaways to tell whether or not its fake? What should a proper...

    There is no magic string

    I tried a lot of strings. Last one was the magic Luxilon Alu Power and Alu Power Spin. My conclusion is, none of them is doing anything special. I think they are mostly the same. They are slightly different but not too much. In my 510 gr. racquet they all feel pretty close. I can't tell much...

But yeah had wrist and elbow discomfort and cut it out. Went back...
