    Hi all. Lurked around the forum for ages but recently got an account. Looking for advice on some new strings with a new racket. Old racket was a Dunlop biometric 200 and always strung with RAB texflex premium at 60lbs. I like strings quite tight. I play mainly doubles and am generally an...

    Gut - Temperature / Humidity Impact

    Over the winter I switched from Volkl Cyclone Tour (VCT) to NGW Uncoated Gut/Cream at 47/44. I have had multiple wrist/elbow surgeries so I string at as low a tension as I can go and feel I have control. I really enjoyed the setup this winter. Now that it is summer I bumped the tension to...

    Multi for Pure Aero 2019?

    Hi, I'm a 3.0-3.5 level male and need suggestions on strings for my PA2019. Some background - I bought PA2019 earlier this year after demo-ing it with Babolat RPM Blast 16 rough and loved the frame-poly combo so much that I got my racket strung with same strings @55. However, for my skill...

    Does this string job look correct?

    Just received a racquet from TW, and the ties look loose and long to me. But not sure. Has this been strung correctly? Is it okay to cut the ends?

    String Suggestion? - Head Youtek Graphene Speed MP 100

    Been playing with this racquet for about 2 years and I've never really gotten used to the contact and feel with NXT Tour 16 strung at 56. Background: In college I played a Head Liquimetal Radical (thick beam 18x20) and thought I could use some more playability when I got back to playing again...

    RF97 Autograph @60lbs on mains anyone???

    Hey guys. I recently purchased the black matte RF97 Autograph. I strung it with the Volkl Psycho hybrid (Volkl Cyclone on mains at 58lbs and Volkl Power Fiber on crosses at 55lbs). This is one powerful racquet. I am over-hitting a lot with it. I have the same setup on my Yonex Duel G 97 330g and...

    Cheaper Alternative to Lux 4G

    I am stringing for a friend who plays with a Wilson 98S and is evaluating a hybrid of Gosen with Luxilon 4G. However, he plans to restring often and the 4G is pretty pricy even in a hybrid. Any thoughts on a round medium-firm control string alternative? I am seeing: - Luxilon Adrenaline -...

    Prestige Tour 600 Rec. Tension

    Hey, pretty new to the forum. I got a PT600 coming in soon and I got a couple strings on me. I normally hit with a shaped poly at 48 lbs in a Vcore Tour G 310. I was thinking about putting in k-gut 17 since I won a set for cheap off the bay but I also got Isospeed Cream, Outlast 17, TNT2 16, and...

    Soft, spin-friendly hybrid setups for Yonex EZONE Ai 98?

    I'm looking for some new setups to try. My last setup was Wilson Revolve 16 in the mains and Gosen Laytex Touch 16 in the crosses, at 52 and 48 pounds respectively. It made my arm sore, though. I'd like a nice set with ample spin and a plush feel. I liked Isospeed Cream a lot when I tried it...

    I’ve seen a bunch of different techniques that are used for tying string. I don’t know which one is the best for each situation. Anyone have any recommendations? I’m hoping that we can compile a list of some of the knots here! :)

    Racquet Performance at Max Tension

    What effect does stringing at max tension have? My old racquet was a 55-65lb and I used it at 60lbs (playing for control), but I just switched to a 50-60lb racquet and I'm wondering what the difference would be if I keep stringing it at 60lbs? It feels different, and I'm wondering if that's...

    Hyper-G/ISOSPEED Cream Hybrid?

    Now that one of my favorite strings, ISOSPEED Cream, is back in stock, I'm debating about using it with my current string of choice Solinco Hyper-G. The main thing I'm looking for is spin and feel, but I'm finding it hard to find a string setup where the ball doesn't fly on me. I play a lot of...

    ALU Power/NRG2 hybrid - gauge question

    I'm currently using PDT with ALU Power 16L/NRG2 16. I was using Pro Hurricane Tour 16 with NRG2 16 until recently (dug the feel of the ALU). Just swapped out the PHT for the ALU in my frames. My question - will the ALU cut through the NRG2 quickly if I drop to the NRG2 17 gauge? The ALU Power...

    Best Poly String for Head Prestige Classic 600 (PC600)

    Hi, I have Head PC 600 and as you know this is VERY flexible 18X20 racquet. I've used Luxilon Alu Power Rough 16L on my K-Factor Six-One Tour 90 (12 pts HL) with 52-56. It felt really stiff and hard? so no comfort at all. I have the reel of Luxilon Alu Power Rough so should I string this on my...

    Racquet Change advice

    Hi, first post on here so I hope I'm posting in the right section. I'm a college player and I play with the Head Radical MP (16x19), but recently tested a Wilson Blade 18x20. I have very loopy topspin groundstrokes, so I have never had a good relationship with 18x20 patterns, but really...
