If you know Cecil Mamiit what racket does he use ?:?
MicroGel Extreme Pro, real one I think (he used to use PD, so it might be a custom like Ljubicic), PHT mains, Gut Crosses
What strings are those... obviously it is a hybrid. But what is it... It looks like what i have on my extreme, babolat pro hurricane tour and gamma asterix.
On that racquet he was using Lux BB 1.30 on the mains and Sonic Pro 17g on the cross.
He now uses Babolat Pure Drivr + with ALU Spin on the mains and ALU Power on the crosses.
Very good. You are very correct. I can't remember the exact tension but his crosses are 2lbs higher than mains. I want to say 44/46 but I can't remember exactly. Don't forget the light blue matching rubber band.
Why would he string it that low? i know that it gives you a trampoline effect but at some point in time wouldn't the tension not matter and you would still get the same effect?
Also wouldn't you lose control if it was that low... and does it damage the frame because it is below the reccomended tension.
before you all make fools of yourselves....
I have a good friend of mine who i play college ball with who will be playing davis cup with cecil for the phillipines in 4 weeks. I will let you know what he plays with as I am also very interested and have let my friend know my interest, Details should follow soon. be patient.
I don't understand how I would be making a fool of myself. I know Cecil personally. I have touch/strung/hit with his racquet.
I believe he was using gut cross as of end of May in Carson.
I agree with chrisplchs. Why would we be making a fool of ourselves, and would you care to explain why?
