    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).

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Head Prestige Mid 93 Stringing

    Howdy I wanted to ask about your opinion on stringing Prestige Mid. For now I have chosen to use Babolat RPM Blast Rough and Tecnifibre XR3 17G together in order to get better spin and power from a 93" mid size racket. I was inclined to use Rough on the mains for spin and XR3 on crosses for...

    What questions do I ask new customers?

    I started stringing in July 2021. I'm now starting to string for more people now besides my friends and people I know well (and their games). I think I'm doing well so far getting the right combinations (string/tension) in people's racquets and getting positive feedback. But I don't have much...
