Best String Setup for Prince Extreme Tour 100p

#1
Hi.
I’ve just named the PT100p(2015 model)as my racquet of choice for this year.
However, would like to listen all suggestions you may have for this frame, specially if you have already had this one on your bags.
For my past racquets, I always strung with hybrids:TBite Soft 1,15 on Mains and WSensation 1,25 on crosses at a little higher tension.
Thanks!

Great choice of stick - its mine as well. I've used several set ups in it and found that a full bed of soft poly at low 50's works best for me - it makes the most out of the spin potential of the open 18 x 20. Strings are very subjective as the experience is unique to the player but a couple of my favourites are Yonex Poly Tour Pro and Alu Power. I have also tried hybrids on it and preferred the poor mans champions choice, Alu Power and Sensation crosses. Gut is to pricey. Also like the look of Isospeed Cream and will give that a go at some stage - the TW review was very positive and in general the reviews are helpful. Finding the right string is a lot of trial and error and hope you find your best combo quick to save a few quid.

Thanks for your thoughts.
Sadly, full poly is too risky because I have a past of several arm issues...
Multi full bed could be an option but not the opposite.
I will start by my main combo at low tensions(TBite/Sensation) and adjust if necessary.
Cheers!

I’ve been playing with the PTT 100P for almost 2-years and love them. Like you, I’ve fought elbow issues with poly hybrids & simply can’t do them any more. After trying a bunch of synthetics & multis I finally settled on Wilson NXT 17g Black (the natural & black do feel different). I string at 56 lbs. on a Prince Neos. If I have to get one strung on a constant pull I drop to 54. I get plenty of spin on demand & wouldn’t consider using anything else.

Not very durable,right?

Comparatively speaking, I’ve found it very durable. I typically play three times a week and usually restring after 6-8 weeks. At first I was put off by the fraying after 3-4 weeks, but found when I kept playing with it like that it actually played better the more it frayed. Of course there is a point of diminishing return when tension drops to the point when I can’t swing freely any more. Then I restring.

I've been comparing TBS 1.20/Kirsch SG 1.25 to Cyber Flash 1.23/Kirsch SG 1.25. The TBS setup is slightly deader feeling and slightly more comfortable. Also I felt a little better control with it. The CF felt very neutral and a bit crisper hitting. The TW numbers have TBS lasting longer for tension, so that would be a factor for me. CF is an older string. I really like both hybrids, but since I still have most of a CF reel I will stick with it for the time being. CF costs $74.90 for a reel. Kirsch SG costs $35.00 for a reel. TBS is up at $159.99 for a reel, but maybe worth it.

I’ll learn morw about those options.
Is TBS poly?Kirsh Sg is multi?

The TT 100P has been my racquet for almost 4 years now. Love it. I've tried a lot of strings, but ultimately settled on Solinco Revolution 17 at 50 lbs. That's a full bed of poly, so it may not be what you're looking for, but it's a pretty comfy poly.

Hmmm,I’m afraid poly full bed can damage my arm...
