Best multi for a poly player

ByeByePoly

G.O.A.T.
I am reading this book, and it suggest that weight training in fitness center or home gym is essential:


I guess I might have to hit the gym soon.....
I have never been a gym guy ... if not at home not happening (at least for long). I am working out now ... watching taped AO. 8-B

Velocity is not meant to be strung really high. I use it and it is indeed better for my arm than any synthetic gut I have played. I did not get along great with that head spiraltek or whatever it is either. It actually aggravated my arm. Velocity in low 50s in Tt100p or mid fifties in my c10 Pro

Velocity is a great string, I string at the same tension in my TT100P as you do. But for my liking Velocity string moves too much too soon. I like the visual of the black Velocity in the TT100P but the white plays better IMO, I only played the 17g versions.

Interesting, I will look into that string right away - Thanks.

Did you ever try isospeed professional classic

At TWU database isospeed has the following date

Reftension / Stiffness

40 lb - 133.2
51 lb - 133.7
62 lb - 133.7

Quite a unique string in that department, only Natural Gut have the same properties.

You can string isospeed at high tension for control while it still plays soft.
Haven't tried Isospeed Professional Classic yet. I'm not a string breaker, so I don't restring that often, but I do have a couple of racquets that need stringing, so I could order some and have it strung up. When I compare it to Spiraltek the tension loss is a lot more, so I would probably string it higher than Spiraltek. Spiraltek also has a much better spin potential rating than the Isospeed string. How would you rate spin for the Isospeed string?
 
Don't forget about Wilson Sensation, it's super super comfy, and cheap compared to the NXTs and Xcels of this world. I went from Ultra Cable, Hyper-G, and PTP right to Sensation thinking it was going to be horrible. It wasn't it was a great fun string that you can learn to rip with. Sometimes keeping it simple just works!

If you hit hard with spin and want a multi for comfort, Tecnifibre Multifeel is the best I’ve found. Durability isn’t great (was ~6h with 16x19, now ~9h with 18x20), but you can’t have everything. At least for me, the crosses wear instead of the mains, so the mains are able to snap back until it breaks. Never need to straighten the strings.

I have a set of Multifeel. May string it up in my Tec DC 315 LTD 18x20 and see how it plays. Any recommendation on tension?

I've had major reconstructive surgeries on both shoulders, my right wrist, and my right ankle. I went through a period where I tore my hamstrings, to the point where I would develop a grapefuit or larger sized bruise, seven or eight times in about a year period. And I've called my wife at least four or five times either on my way to, or from, the emergency room. I think the name fits!
damn... you are very much injury prone my fellow poster!

Holy crap ... you are stupid. I have no idea how you get past the hamstrings ... I no longer trust mine and just tore each once. 8-B
I fixed it for you...

I was playing a 4.0 league match and at that time I had a pretty wicked kick serve which I got to bounce extra high by jumping up into the motion from a platform stance. This was probably around 2005 or 2006, when I was in my middle 40's. Then on one serve, my hammy tore in my right leg. Defaulted the match and rested it for a few weeks. Went back to playing and about a week in, lunged and landed on that leg while pretty stretched out and popped it again. Rested some more weeks and was doing hamstring curls, and popped it a third time on the weight machine.

Took a month or two off, healed up, and went to sportsmed PT, who said I was imbalanced in the way that I athletically moved, causing extra strain on my right hamstring. Went through the process of retraining the way I moved, which was really helpful, but then not long after I popped my **left** hamstring running after a ball. Healed up from that in a couple of months, and then as it got colder, ended up popping both hamstrings at least once or twice more.

This was about the time I realized that I needed more time in the gym if I wanted to continue playing. I dedicated an hour doing strength and flexibility for every hour to 90 minutes on court. It's something I continue to this day, which is why I think my physical decline has been less than others my age. It has let me catch up to many of them, and just being physically capable has let me continue to work on improving my game.

But the hamstring tears were awful. I even tore my lat once, trying to hit that same kick serve.

"I think if I had your past level of skill and tournament experience, I wouldn't be taking this so badly."

Two sides of that ... good memories and satisfaction of a lot of work and losses eventually rewarded. BUT ... having to laugh now on the court at the drop in level. Four of my friends ... all very successful 4.5, 5.0 and age group were playing doubles and one blurts out "what game are we playing, certainly isn't tennis". :p The strokes hold up, but not the legs and the serves.

I ran into another tennis friend yesterday I hadn't seen for a couple of years ... he is probably 65 now. I knew he quit tennis several years ago, mainly to avoid knee surgery, but turns out he tore both hamstrings and one calf. That is exactly my count. :mad: Most of my past USTA teammates dropped tennis between 55-60 ... knees, backs, one wrist. Post 50 tennis is tough. Ironically I played and moved my best in years at age 55 ... but at some point the legs start having injuries (or you just don't move much on the court).

OK ... this thread did not cheer me up.
Sorry about that!

At our club, most of the older guys are still going strong. I can only think of one 4.5 player that had to quit the game due to a shoulder problem. Most everyone else is still playing, even with joint replacements. I'm the primary organizer of a band of about a dozen brothers age 58 and up who get together to play singles, and we have multiple courts going every weekday morning. Everyone plays hard and though there are some injuries like my wrist, we all heal up and come back for more, and nearly everyone is 4.5 level or higher.

I guess I thought this was pretty typical, but maybe we should all count our lucky stars that we are still able to do what we do.

I have been a multi / SG / Gut player for the last 10 years after a TE from poly, and I have been playing most of the multis out there. I am now going back to poly as my game (aggressive baseliner) really benefits from a FB poly. I will also soon experiment with Gut / Poly

@Injured Again you got me interested in Tourna Silver 7 Tour, and I really like this string (I string it low). Perhaps you have a suggestion for a softer poly that can be used as a cross to S7T. I am looking and trying out different strings to find the softest poly that my arm can handle. Have you tried Grapplesnake Irukandji as a cross. I have tried ZX as a cross, but don't like the feeling.

Back to Multi - the problem with most multis are string movement, and strings get stuck out of place and I hate that. So for me the perfect multi is soft, low powered, control oriented, and strings stay in place. Very few multis fits that bill as they all move around like crazy after an hour of play. The two best multis IMO that fits my liking are Isospeed Professional Classic and Head RIP Control (made by isospeed).

Isospeed can be strung at higher tension without getting stiff, just like NG, this is the reason ISO works so well as a cross string for Gut - this is my ultimate softest setup. If you ever want to try it out let me know and I can help with tension.

SG are even worse in the string moving department, and a SG can be quite stiff when strung medium to high.

I agree with @ByeByePoly you are a tough guy with all these injuries - keep up that spirit.
I use S7T as a full bed. @blai212 encouraged me to try it with a thin gauge Pro Poly Plasma as a cross but I found that reduced the crispness to a level that I didn't enjoy. If you like S7T but wanted a softer bed, Pro Poly Plasma is a good string to try. I have found that S7T responds pretty similarly over a fairly wide range of tensions, retaining a crisper feel when swinging hard even when tensions are low and the comfort level goes up. I think that's why I like the string so much. The slight tension loss it has doesn't alter the feel and I have consistency from right off the stringer until about an hour before it breaks.

I do have a set of Irukandji but haven't tried it yet. I've heard it is a cushioned string that also allows for a lot of string movement, maybe even more so than SPPP. Maybe if the wrist needs an extended period of time with a softer setup, a hybrid with Irukandji could be the way to go. But I'm honestly pretty lazy which is why I tend to always string one piece - it seems like too much effort to cut and measure two pieces of string. That's pretty silly and dumb, but my laziness really knows no bounds.

I'll keep the Isospeed and RIP Control in mind if multis are in my future. Thanks!

I went through a TE injury last year. My solution was to go to a Tecnifibre TFight DC 315 LTD with synthetic gut, then a really soft multi (LaserFibre Laser 1200). The racquet is foam-filled, and with the softer strings really absorbed the vibrations. I didn't feel any pain during play, only after playing. Along with some exercises to work on my TE, it slowly went away while I played 2-3 times/week, about 2 hours per session.

This is just my experience of working through an injury. You may want to consider changing your racquet to something friendlier to your wrist. I still use my Tec 315 some of the time, but usually play with one of my Volkl racquets, which are not quite as easy on the arm, but still not harsh.
When the last of my half-dozen Babolat Overdrive 110 racquets broke and I had to switch, it was a several month ordeal to find a racquet and string combo that I felt I could really mesh with. I'm really amazed by players who can have different racquets in their bag and use them interchangeably. I don't have that kind of skill or ability to compensate, and I just really don't see how anyone can if they are rushed to the point where a swing has to happen instinctively. But because I had such a tough time switching, I think I'd be more inclined to just shut it down fully if the wrist isn't good.

That being said, I strung this racquet up recently and it is incredibly plush and forgiving:



Poly string with proportional tensioning but averaging in the middle 40's. The sweet spot extends from about the third cross string on the top to the third cross string on the bottom, and is very wide near the tip. This is the racquet I could probably most easily play with if I had to switch to something more comfortable. It's almost a vibrationless impact feel with what seems like an incredibly long dwell time, but the ball still ends up going where I think it's going to go.

I'm not sure what that says about me, or about how strangely my SW104 must be set up that I could switch to this racquet.

@ByeByePoly and @Injured Again I am about the same age as you guys. Loosing 15 kg made wonders for my knees and legs (and my tennis). I was set up for a knee surgery, but decided to loos weigh and do fitness for my knee - I am now pain free, and no need for surgery anymore. My doctor told me that 1kg on my stomach put a stress on my knee that equals 4kg - so loosing 15kg changed everything.

Cheers, Happi
Totally agree. I know many of the guys my age have been told by their doctors that weight is the enemy of staying athletically healthy, but I also don't feel athletically capable if I don't do significant resistance training. I'm currently about 88 kg/195 pounds and just under 6 feet tall so I'm way heavier than my tennis peers. I don't think I've found that good balance between being light and strength training yet.

The guy he would have played drew a 3.5 in the first round and double-bageled him, got a walkover from the injured #3 seed in the second round, played five games and got a retirement in the quarters, and now got a default from the #2 seed in the semis. Made it to the finals playing 17 games over four matches. Double-aaaarrrrggghhhh!!!!
I played him tonight. He doesn't hit very hard, but he is excellent counterpouncher. I enjoy playing against him because he is very mentally tough and I need to play patiently with long points and strong mental focus against him.

Our Wed night permanent indoor court time doubles for years was made up of players 45-65+ (the oldest guy now 80 still playing with both knees replaced). On any given Wed ... there might be 4-5 artificial knees on two courts of doubles. :p
Battle until they drag you off the court sir ... I am a new fan. (y)

I did quite a bit of Googling on hamstrings at the time of my injury ... the link at the bottom was my thread with good input from others. I think you can do "everything hamstring rehab" at home.

Played it for years ... the vast majority of my club friends and USTA teammates did. Wife still does ... don't even "go there" suggesting she try something else. The one advantage V has over Sensation based on how Sensation played (years ago for me ... I have no idea if it had changes) is for me is V plays pretty much the same until it breaks (20ish hours). I remember the first two weeks of Sensation being great ... and then a little deader until it broke.

It isn't one of the most popular strings ever for nothing. (y)

I used to play multifeel too. Been a long time. I might have to try that and compare to Velocity. Velocity locks up but still plays pretty well for me and I hit hard and use a good amount of spin. Gives me just as much as Isospeed Cream and I like the sort of rubbery feel. I have always liked that but I know many do not.

At some point isospeed cream got pegged as a cross string, which it does reasonably well. But try it as a main and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

I've got a bit of a wrist issue at the moment. It started because I've been trying to add an extra bit of racquet head drop on my forehand takeback so that with the same swingpath, I can get more topspin. The problem has been that I've been late on contact a few times and haven't gotten the racquet back to parallel. Instead, I've mis-hit the ball with my wrist still bent and I've got a compression type injury to the outside (looking at it with my palms facing down). Unfortunately, I've got a tournament coming up and will probably irritate it more even if I lose first round. Afterwards, I'm going to use a soft string for rehab as I continue to work on this technique.

I don't have a lot of experience with the current multifilament offerings. My priority would be similar launch angle, low powered, and comfort, in about that order. I figure if I can get something like that, I can play with it for some good length of time to fully heal. Spin capability isn't that important, and neither is durability. Suggestions for what to use? I've heard good things about NXT and Velocity. Anything else I should consider?
The two strings that come to my mind are Head FXP and Head Rip Control. Both offer great control and the feel is unique. You can put some smooth poly in the cross and you will have close to full poly control but with better feel and comfort.

the problem is cream is a round poly and as such will lack the bite of a shaped/textured poly in mains, hence, why it is much better suited as cross string. I never really liked the metallic feel of cream. Volkl cyclone tour is much better. Soft, spinny when fresh, and good ball pocketing, I like my VCT hybrid setup better than natural gut hybrid in terms of power/spin/comfort/durability/tension maintenance...thats saying a lot.

Sounds like you've got a TFCC tear. Get a MRI ASAP. Sharp stabbing pain on the ulnar (outer pinky) side of wrist. It started to mess with my timing, footwork and confidence. Doctors kept telling me it was arthritis and telling me I wasn't a spring chicken. I took the internet into my own hands [emoji23] and self diagnosed myself when the pain became unbearable.... Dr. kept taking Xrays and giving cortisone shots. I would rest for a few weeks, feel better, play pain free for an hour tops then the pain would creep back and my game would go straight to hell.

It was impossible to use a poly and not feel it, plus I couldn't swing out. I went to a full bed of NRG2 or NRG2 in mains, with a synthetic or Black Magic in crosses.

I bumped into him Sunday night. He was pretty pumped up about his winnner's paycheck.
He definitely earned it. He had a sore knee after his first Saturday morning match and had to come back in the afternoon to play the semis and then the finals the next morning. He was pretty clearly the best mover of the group that I saw, despite being probably the tallest player in the field.

All of the guys play a very control oriented game. None of them try to hit the ball like I do so I feel like if I can get it all together and stay healthy, I'll have a pretty unique game at this age group. Hopefully, unique is good!

We still need to get together for a hit one of these days!

First article that came up with a search was this:


It definitely sounds like I had an injury in this area. Fortunately for me, it seems to have healed up with the days of rest. I hit yesterday morning for 90 minutes with minimal discomfort and even used a fully poly stringbed for the last half hour. I did catch a couple of forehands high on the stringbed that didn't feel good but there's no resulting pain. I'm resting it fully today even though I have full range of motion with no discomfort, and will try to gradually ease back into it.

This TFCC issue sounds like it could be the cause for a lot of wrist discomfort issues for many players. Thanks for bringing it to my attention - I think I definitely have to make an appointment with a specialist to ensure I'm 100% good to go before I go full throttle at it again.

Quick post-mortem. As I said in my previous post, a few days of rest, combined with heat/ice and wrist mobility exercises, seemed to have let it heal back up. I am having no symptoms and am able to bench press and barbell curl with no pain.

I never did get to try a multi and I've received the pack of Velocity that I ordered. I believe I've been accepted as a playtester for the new Dunlop string and my set should arrive on Monday so if my hit tomorrow goes well, I'll probably go straight from the PSGD to that string since I still haven't finished with testing the Confidential in my other racquet (I only have two and am waiting to see what the next gen of my racquet turns out to be before buying more).

The PSGD was surprisingly low powered and controllable. I was expecting a much softer stringbed and my increase in string tension of about 12% over what I used for full poly was too much. I would have been better off with about a 5% increase, and that probably would have given me a more injury friendly feel. As it was, PSGD was good at hitting the ball with a relatively flat swing trajectory. Directional and length control were good, with a consistent but low launch angle, and it seemed to hold tension pretty well. PSGD muted some of the harshness when I mis-hit but there was still a considerable amount of shock if I caught a ball near the frame. What PSGD didn't do well was to spin the ball. Heavy topspin or underspin swing trajectories had the ball feeling as if it slid off the strings. Skimming topspin shots went nowhere - most of them barely would reach the net unless I altered my swingpath and racquet head angle. Heavy underspin attempts would float high and long. Volleys were point-and-shoot, without having to worry about what spin the ball had. After about 90 minutes of fairly gentle use, it looks like it will break within the next 90 minutes.

As I said earlier, I used to recommend this string at moderately high tensions to players who were newer to the game or had a flatter type strokes and I think I was wrong to do so. I'm going to reach out to some of these players and see if they had bad experiences, and restring their racquets for them if they did.

I'll get around to trying Velocity, probably right after I'm done testing the Confidential string. I'm super curious how close reality is to where my perceptions are of that class of string.

But it is an amazing racquetball racquet! Seriously, the sweet spot is probably a good eight inches in length and very wide at the top where the frame is wide. It is hard to mis-hit with this frame and the poly gives it control.
I tend to hit a lot of balls toward tip ... cross 3 and 4 (ok ... sometimes 2 ;)) ... maybe that racquet is what I needed all these years. I have only had one Yonex racquet ... still in bag as backup ... and loved it.

Just because I could I strung up one of my hard hitting hitting buddy's (25 yrs my junior) Yonex VCP 97 310s with Sensation in the mains and Prince Premier Control in the crosses. Normally he likes a poly around 57lbs. So I strung up the mains at 58 crosses at 56. Looks like we have a winner for him. He came back and asked for that again. Why hybrid two multis? PPC seems slicker than Sensation so I thought maybe this multi combo could appeal to him even though he is OCD about "straight" strings. How could these people have ever survived wooden racket era with blue or gold spiral as their only choices?

P.S. I am so sick of hearing: "There went my dampener." Or worse yet, "My strings won't stay straight." In both cases the most appropriate responses are "Who gives a s..." or "That is the least of your problems."
