    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...

    Solinco Tour Bite vs Yonex Poly Tour Drive

    Hey guys! I play with my Yonex Vcore 95 (2018) with Solinco tour bite at 45 lbs, and as much as of pain it is to string it up I love it! Recently, I came across a similar-looking string for a cheaper price, that being the Yonex PTD. I was wondering what the playability duration would be like...

    What is YOUR string of the year?

    As the title suggests, what is YOUR string of the year? I’ve been testing a few strings this year to mix it up and so far Gosen AK Pro CX has been my favorite. Definitely a powerhouse of a string with good bite on the ball. Did not think I would enjoy a synthetic gut as much as I did. I’m...

    Is anyone still playing with Tecnifibre Tfight 305 XTC? I understand that it is quite stiff, and the tension recommendation on the racquet is 49lbs to 55lbs.

    Prince 93p 18x20 Full bed of multifilament

    My main racket is a Pure drive plus (2015), but ive been taking the 93p 18x20 out more often lately. It really has a nice feel on contact. I strung the 93p with Tourna Big Banger rough 17 at 48lb. Although it felt great for the first 2 hitting sessions, the tension dropped very quickly and im...

    A question for expert stringers - a tour of Technifibre string “zoo”

    Why don't pros use their string provider's stencil?

    I remember in the 90s and 2000s, the majority of players used to have their string provider's stencilled onto the bottom of the racquet, underneath the stencil logo of their racquet e.g. Sampras used a Wilson racquet so had a 'W' stencilled on his racquet and below was the Babolat stencil lines...
