Second hit today with the Cyclone setup and it felt so good. Perhaps the new lead placements n Tournagrip factor in too. I got a lot of big first serves and great spin in general.
Played twice now with this setup. The tension feels just right. I noticed issues with my slice n so I stuck in a lil bit more lead at 12 (ballpark of 2.5g on there now) and moved the lead from 10 n 2 to 3 n 9. Slice has improved! I also added 1.5g of lead to the handle. Played a set today and won 6-2.I played a few more times with the Cyclone setup and then noticed that I lost a bit of control. It must have been 6 hrs that I played with this string. I def did enjoy it and it was the best string so far for my Vcore 95 but I def would like better tension maintenance. Strung on Hextreme 1.30mm at 52lbs on mains and 50lbs on crosses. Threw on an additional 1.25g of lead at 12. Will hit and update tmr.
Silver Tour is a nice string. Soft n crisp!!!! I will order the 1.30mm!!!While I did like the Hextreme 1.30mm and it seems to be my frontrunner, i am also looking for other competitors in tension maintenance. So I strung tonight with Big Hitter Silver 7 Tour 17g at 56lbs. Nice string to string with. Will update tmr.
Strung my new Vcore 95 backup with BHS7T 1.30mm at 56lbs. My other Vcore still has the 1.25mm which prob has logged 11 hours now and still feels great. Will provide an update on how the 1.30mm feels tmr.8 hours logged and I must say the tension maintenance is still feeling great. Won a match 6-3 today. Awesome spin!!! This is the main contender for me so far. I would like to see how it plays in 1.30mm gauge.
Played with the 1.30mm setup today. It was good. I still need more sessions to gauge how it compares to the 17g. I didn't like that it felt slightly more head heavy.Strung my new Vcore 95 backup with BHS7T 1.30mm at 56lbs.

Thats crazy cos I got some Pro's Pro strings too and will test in time. I am really enjoying the S7T too. Do you use the 1.25mm gauge? What do you string at?I really like S7T. It's probably going to be my go to strings. I ordered Pro's Pro so to test out and will make my decision after that.
Id take the 16g for a Clash or Pure Aero but 17g fits nicely in alot of racquets. I just did a back to back between Yonex Poly Strike vs Tourna. Yonex pas quality and good feel but I think youll get more bite with the tourna and still get good feel.I cut out the 16g. I realised that 17g is for me. I restrung with Pro Pro Black Out 1.24mm at 56lbs. Will hit tmr and update.
The Pro's Pro was very comfortable especially for being strung at 56lbs in my Vcore 95. I could have used more spin and I noticed that when I switched over to my other Vcore 96 which has the Silver 7 Tour setup. I would give it more test time for sure though I think know already I won't go for it in the long run as I heard it's tension maintenance is not the best and that is what I am basing my string choice on now.Id take the 16g for a Clash or Pure Aero but 17g fits nicely in alot of racquets.

So Pros pro blackout was good enough??
S7T is my fave so far. I am waiting for Confidential and Max Power to come in and then I will close it at that and make a decision. That might then be the end of this blog!!! hihi. I hope people found it helpful.ha! like what i noticed from Strike to Tourna without being extreme it was noticeable.
Is Tourna your favorite so far ? have you compared with Max Power
This is a nice frame. I just need to find a better string setup.Found my wife's Wilson BLX Juice Pro 96 in the basement lol. Strung it with Revolve Spin 17g at 56lbs. Slapped on 2g of lead at 12 and 2g of lead at 3 and 2g of lead at 9. Countered with almost similar weight in handle. Will hit tmr n update.
Just tried Max Power and my oh my!!! Lol. I string S7T at 56lbs in my Yonex Vcore 95 and so after reading that Max Power is lower powered and slightly stiffer (i think) as per the TW string database, I decided to string at 54lbs. Right from the first hit, the setup felt smooooth! Felt like the strings didnt need to break in. It also felt soft (not mushy soft like Hyper G) but yet crisp. Very comfortable. Didn't seem to feel stiff at all. I will actually string at 56lbs next time as it had decent power. Wonderful string. I know its my first hit with it but to feel this way on the first hit def means something. While I could play this in a full bed, I will experiment with it as a cross to S7T once both my reels come in in about 2 weeks or so. Great spin too.Strung my other Vcore 95 with Kirschbaum Max Power 1.25mm at 54lbs. Gonna hit tonight. Was easy to string. We are down to our final string test for my Vcore!!!
I am very interested to know more. Can you update me on how tension maintenance fares over the duration of your play with it please.I'm currently hitting with that right now. I have in the mains with syn gut in the crosses. I will say FireWire has a nice bite. I'm going to try full bed next time but I'm impressed. I have FireWire in my Head Graphene Touch Prestige Pro.
