    Is my Hyper-G shot?

    This is my first time playing with a poly. I bought a pre-owned racquet with Solinco Hyper-G in it. I played for a while with it now. I am not sure I am experiencing any big play differences mostly because this racquet (Clash) can overhit and be erratic. What I am sure is that string sounds...

    Mystery strings

    A while ago, I was given a reel of Tennis Code, Stealth Overboost 1.25 black reel. Does anyone know what these strings are or where I can buy another reel from? I can't find them anywhere on the Web.

    Best way to get better fast

    It is simple, get a high rate of repeat-ability. For example, have all racquets identical, string always with the same wire, same tension and string as often as you can. Worst thing is to have many different racquets in your bag, even if the difference is just the string or weight. If they are...

    MSV Focus Hex: White vs Black

    Played yesterday and had two racquets strung with MSV Focus Hex in my bag. One was strung with white Focus Hex and the other one was strung with the black Focus Hex. I started with the black MSV Focus Hex. Great string, great feel, great spin, great durability, great tension maintenance. But I...

    Stringing and head deformation

    What I noticed lately from my often stringing jobs is that mains and crosses pull the head sides and deformation occurs depending on the tension you put on each type of strings, mains and crosses. The head can get elongated into a slight oval shape if the tension in the crosses is higher or it...

    Is Babolat PureStrike 98 (18x20), in your experience, a tennis elbow maker?

    I'have just gotten an unstrung Babolat PureStrike 98 (18x20). While looking at some stringing recommendations, I ran into a discouraging pattern where people initially praise the racket for its play performance (it is one of the highest rated rackets on TW, rated at 89), but then I see...

    Strings never break. Should I go for a certain type of strings?

    I have two racquets: A Head Prestige and a Head Speed. Now I never ever break my strings. So when I go to the shop, should I ask them not to prioritize durability or something?

    Wilson Blade v7 18x20 cross stringing question

    I'm pretty sure I did this wrong... I'm so used to Yonex 2-pieces which end up so clean. I bought a new 18x20 v7 Blade and as per their site, it mentions to tie the x-string at 6T, 12B. Problem being the mains have already travelled back to tie off at 7B which leaves a bundle of strings like in...

    Signum Pro Strings Yellow Jacket and X-Perience

    These have to be some of the most underrated strings on the market. I have been using Volkl Cyclone and Solino Hyper G pretty exclusively but after testing these strings I may just switch. They provide the same bite and control I get from Cyclone and Hyper G, but in a much more comfortable...

    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...

    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? https://photos.app.goo.gl/wDzrTc7nSaPp27s57 https://photos.app.goo.gl/nprDuBCeaEAskZ417 https://photos.app.goo.gl/zv5sY8nid4nwCs1s5

    PPC, NXT Control, NXT Comfort - Stiffness Values on Comparison Tool

    I am confused by the stiffness values I am seeing on the String Comparison Tool for Prince Premier Control, NXT Comfort, and NXT Control and I am wondering if I am miss-interpreting these values or the intent of these strings or perhaps there is a wrong value for NXT Comfort in the tool. I...

    Is Yonex Poly Tour Pro far more popular than PT Air, Fire, Spin, Strike?

    And reason? And if it is just better, why does Yonex sell it at a much lower price than the rest (except PT Air)?

    RacquetTune String Factor for Tourna Big Hitter Silver 17G

    I just purchased some Tourna Big Hitter Silver 17G (Not Rough but Smooth version) to try in Hybrids with Gosen OGSM 16G. I can’t seem to locate a RacquetTune String Factor for this string in the RacquetTune DB or out here on Talk Tennis. I hope this is not a bad sign that my experiment with...

    Temperature and string tension

    Hi. In your opinion/experience does a 10º temperature plus 30% humidity difference make a difference in how your string set up plays? I ask because I strung a racquet and it hit for a couple hours with it on a day in the low 80º range. It was marvelous. Couldn't miss. The next day it was 96º...

    Bowed string/grommet issue?

    Encountered a new one today. Was stringing for a friend and once completed I was straightening out the strings and noticed that on the 17th and 18th cross the string bowed. Like I couldn't adjust it, it kept going back to that flexed position — on the 17th it flexed downwards, on the 18th...
