Baller on a budget.

because you seem not interested in cheap strings but in the famous expensive ones.
These definitely aren’t expensive compared to other brands (looking at you luxilon). I regularly play OGSM as a cross to polys at $4 a pack. Also, I string for myself so no labor

I read you are interested in Isospeed greyfire which costs in my country 150euro for a reel. So imagine what a set would cost! In this same interneshop you can buy the famous Alu for 189euro for a 220m reel, so nearly as much money! I dont know your budget but this price segment isnt called 'budget' for most.

I’ve strung my frame with tourna silver 7 tour and Tier1 ghostwire, played two competitive match today with this hybrid and I can say it’s glorious.
Never liked BK nor FireWire with GW, but this is a winner.
A really nice blend of bite and softness, power and control. Really impressed by the fact I couldn’t test it before this competition, and yet felt very natural to me.
Price is sweet, so it could be the real deal !

59£ in the UK for a reel of grey fire, so you could just buy it from there.

EUR 80 on tennispoint shipping anywhere in Europe for probably a tenner.
Do not mind ron, gentlemen. Even in my short time here, I have found him to be on the lighter side intellectually.

I’d say kirschbaum evolution mains (at $89 for a reel) with alpha gut 2000 cross is pretty baller in my Ezone 100.

i thought this thread is about budget string options. How can gut be possibly be a budget option?

EUR 100, shipped at my door with tax and customs included.
if you find that budget, it really is hilarious.

Back to budget options . . .

I have been using the Oehms Alu Pearl Rough as a cross and found it does well for a low priced string. Rough is used loosely in the name. It is actually a lobed cross section, so low friction longitudinally. Most reels eventually go two for one on the Oehms web site, so you can do well on a low budget.

At the same time, I have been staying away from Pro’s Pro, which is the ultimate budget string. Am I missing something good there?

Concept 1.33 served me ok. Good control and decent feel. Lasted ages too.

I just tried out alu again for the first time in a year or two. It's just so good. I don't want to explain everything but it just goes in. Simple as that. Such direct feel. Shame it dies quickly but the candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long

I've bought some 1.38mm gauge and thinking of crossing grey fire with it to cheapen and enhance the durability of a reel. Will try this with the 1.30 as well.

I’ve been using oehms Alu pearl rough for the past 3 months, fullbed, and find it very predictable and consistent. Durability is also quite good as I can get 6-8h of competitive tennis out of it (and much more if I was just training).
Only grip is that it doesn’t stand out in any category, that’s why I’m getting back to tourna silver 7 tour that gives me that extra pop and spin. But overall a very good cheap string who helps tame a wild open pattern frame as my Tc95 16x19.

Regarding Pro’s Pro, I’ve tried a few poly (cyber power, stratagem, blackout) but nothing really stood out to me. They make soft poly and I’m looking for crisp in my soft Angell, so maybe that’s why.
