    String tension versus power potential of string

    I'm using Tennisoutlet Orange Tiger string which is a "replica" from Signum Pro Poly Plasma. This is a low powered poly with I think good spin potential, tension maintance and durability, and made by Isospeed. I'm using this string on about 48/46 lbs (22/21 kgs). My confidence how lower tension...

    Looser = Better?

    Normally I like low 50s tension. But I hit with a friend's Wilson Juice 100 strung very loosely with what I believe to be a full bed of Luxilon Adrenaline, and I may have to rethink tension a bit. I think the tension on this Juice is in the low 30s. It was impressively comfortable, had easy...

    Lower tension + stiffer string or higher tension + more flexibile string?

    I was playing with Tennisoutlet Orange Tiger 1.25 (which is a Signum Pro Poly Plasma replica made by Isospeed) in the last time. I was really really getting to like this string in the last time, but now I don't have more from this, but I was bought three Head Sonic Pro 1.25 because I used this...

    Luxilon 4G vs Tecnifibre HDX Tour

    Hi all, Has anyone used both of these strings? I am looking for a terrific tension maintenance string. I have found 4G and like it with Klip Legend Natural Gut mains. However I have noticed that the Tecnifibre HDX Tour has considerably better tension maintenance/ lower total tension loss...

    How beneficial is a thicker gauge string?

    I read heard over and over how the "string breaker" is supposed to use thick gauge string, but what does this really mean for the qualites of the string itself? Does a thicker string mean less, spin, feel, and power? And should a player who never breaks their poly sting at it's current gauge...

    String tension vs circumstances

    Some days ago I was found a photo about Federer's stringing data sheet. He was stringed 27 / 25,5 kgs. Before I found a memo about he stringed 22 / 20,5 at 2015 Australian Open. I wrote this and luxilon wrote a reply when it's depends from temperature, surface and indoor/outdoor. I'm interesting...

    Burn FST 99 stringing possibilities

    I am a 3.5 player at best and am currently running wilson revolves on the mains and wilson syn gut power on the crosses at 55lbs. This has proved to be a terrible hybrid for me, very limited sweet spot which is hurting my game and has lost tension very quickly. Was wondering what would be a...

Currently playing with a full bed of x-one biphase 17g at 52lbs with a 2015 PS97 and I have found a good deal for 17g klip legend Nat gut and wondering how much higher should I get the tension...

    Wilson Ultra 108

    What tension do you recommend me for Hexaspin Twist strings (16) and Wilson Ultra 108? Those are pretty stiff, but on the other hand racket is very powerful.
