    How pros get their unsponsored strings?

    Are they buying themselves and carrying in their bags for each tournaments? For instance, Novak using Babolat gut and alu power, is official tournament stringer company already have that strings or Novak give them at the beginning of tournament? If like that, is he buying from full price...

    Please help narrow down poly options

    So here's the deal: is there a poly that meets the following criteria? A) cheap, affordable. Max. 70-80€ per reel (200metres) We can eliminate the Luxilons, Solincos, Babolats, Yonexes etc. B) durable. Lasts 8-9 hours. (Then breaks or will be cut out anyway) Eliminating Signum Pro Firestorm...

    Arm comfort: Is it better to play with a soft string with low tension maintenance or a stiffer string with good tension maintenance?

    I have looked at TW reviews of Hyper G Soft and Luxilon Alu Power Soft, which I’m considering to buy. The reviewers say that the Hyper G Soft is quite arm-friendly, and that the strings should be re-strung after around 3 weeks. The reviewers say that Alu Power Soft is stiffer than Hyper G Soft...

    Yonex Polytour Spin mains Polytour Fire crosses

    Hello fellow tennis friends! I'm seeing a very good deal for polytour spin and I wonder if this string would be a good string to hybrid with polytour fire to allow that extra bit of kick from my shots. For context I string a full bed of polytour fire 1.20 at 50/48 in my vcore 95 and I'm...

    Replicate multifilament string with polyester string

    Hello, I have noticed in my tennis game that I have an extremely short swing motion ([semi]-western grip, small grip size and a lot of wrist action) and therefore produce a lot of spin but little power. As this is my natural swing and all attempts to change it with the trainer failed, I thought...

    Does anyone know Yannick Hanfmann's racquet setup? String? From what I can see it looks like some sort of Prestige and silver string, maybe Alu. He's currently hitting some solid shots versus Sinner

    In the market for new string

    I am heartbroken to say that my favorite string of all time is almost used up. It was made by a now defunct company, so unfortunately, after my next round of restringing, I'll have to find a new go to. I'm looking for a soft, preferably, shaped co-poly that offers good spin potential and decent...

    Poly Strings with Plastic-y Feel (like Yonex PTP)

    Hi everyone! I know this isn't everyone's cup of tea... but recently, I've been using head strings and the results have been great (was testing a few strings and then was also selected for the playtest demo review). Today, I decided to play with Yonex PTP again (my original go-to), and oddly...

    Experience with different string gauges (when to cut?)

    I've recently switched to an 18x20 racket (Solinco XTD 18x20), and trying different strings and gauges in it. Currently, I'm playing some of the best tennis I've ever played with Yonex PTP but in the 18 gauge. I used to use the 16L gauge in a 16x19, but decided to try 18 gauge just to open up...

    "Hypothetical" question (stringing only last cross)

    If I hypothetically... did not have enough string in my reel to string my last cross row so I tied it off on the 2nd to last one, AND I had 2 leftover feet of that same string (separate from reel/mains/cross)... and I string it through both ends of the final row of the crosses and tie off both...

    racket/string combination for longest possible play time

    are there racket/string combinations which maximize playability? if there are, which combinations would stay playable on court for the longest without sacrificing too much comfort or performance? I think the obvious answer would be a tighter stringbed (18x20) with maybe a kevlar gut hybrid...

    Need string for Head Gravity Pro

    I recently purchased a Head Gravity Pro with Head Lynx Tour @48lbs. I don’t really feel like this string is as great as I liked it to be. I got a recommendation for Solinco Confidential @51 lbs, might try this unless I get a better recommendation.

    Tennis String Tension Measuring Error

    Hey everyone, I recently got a Tourna Stringmeter to check the string tensions on my rackets, but one issue came up. Checking most of my rackets, it seems to be in line with what I strung it at or slightly lower due to string tension loss, but when I tried it on two rackets strung with Gosen...

    Oval String Shape?

    Hey everyone, just a quick question to throw out there. I am currently intrigued by ISOSPEED Rexxxer and StringLab's Orbitour, just to try it and see how they play, and I was wondering what exactly would an oval shape string do. I do not see the obvious benefit for it and assume it's more of a...

    Best gut hybrid for RF97A (especially crosses)?

    I'd like to put the first gut hybrid on my RF97A. I want to use Luxilon Natural Gut 1.30 for mains (I had a great feel with full bed on the RF97A already). But I'm unsure about the Poly for the crosses (and I don't want to mess it up). So I was thinking the following... - probably best to use...

    Strings Similar to the bite (ball grab) of Solinco Confidential?

    I love the consistency, spin, and control of Solinco Confidential, however I do notice it being fairly firm. Does anyone know of any strings that grab/grip the ball as well as Solinco Confidential but are softer? My thinking is Solinco Hyper-G however, it is certainly a bit more muted of a...

    What strings to use with my Wilson Clash 100?

    I'm a complete beginner who just started tennis coaching about a month ago. I do have arm problems from playing Badminton previously, so I've decided to get the Wilson Clash 100 for its low stiffness. Now I'm confused about which string to get for it. I do not have a whole bunch of options, but...

    Volkl V-Pro users

    Anyone else use this string and think it's a pretty good all around string. I've used the 17 and 18 guages in closed and open pattern racquets and really enjoyed it. It's a round poly, I consider it on the softer but not soft-powerful side of polys. Comfortable but with good feel, good tension...

    String stiffness and tension VS Pop

    Does more stiff string give you more pop while hitting?? And does string tension play any role in increasing or decreasing the Pop. Thanks :)

    Poly/poly hybrid suggestions for control

    I had both of my 2019 VCore Pro 97 310 strung up with a Velocity/Ghost Wire hybrid and while I loved it fresh and in the cold, after just a week and a half and about 5-6 hours on each frame, balls are already starting to fly on me more than I'd like when the temp is above 50. It's not...
