Anybody know what strings he uses. Im pretty sure its gut in mains but what exact string? Thanks.
Alu in the crosses probably
Looks like Marin do not yet choose what setup (string&tension) fits him best...as a junior, he played Lux BBOriginal in the mains and gut (sometimes VS Touch, sometimes Wilson Gut) @25/24kgs.
At the start of 2008, he switched from Original to BBALU Power 125.
Then, in last year's USO, started with his usual setup but halfway he reversed the string position and constantly raised the tension from 25/25 to 25.5, 26, and finally 26.5 kgs.
At BNP Parisbas Open, new change...this time full BBALU and tensions of 27, 27.5 and 28 respectively.
New mains change at the french open...this time, regular Pro Hurricane 1.25 and tensions from 24 to 26 <always by half-kilo steps>. From what i know and see, he is still using the PH/VS setup.
Hope this helps
At Sony Ericsson he was using gut mains and alu crosses @ 27-28.5
