Hi all, I have only ever played with synthetic gut. I have never given anything else a try, and I've been playing with Alpha Hardcourt Synthetic Gut 16 for awhile now (and like it just fine compared to other synthetic guts that I've used). Does anybody care to chime in with what I should try? My playstyle: My game is very flat hitting, not too much power, with an opportunistic playstyle. I use the IG Radical MP. Qualities important to me in a string: 1) Comfort: don't have big elbow problems but don't really want them either. I want to be able to play 4-5 days in a row and have my elbow be fine. 2) Durability: By this I don't mean hard to break, since I'm not a string breaker (flat game with not that much power won't break too many strings). What I mean is that I don't want the strings to last only 2-4 weeks before I have to restring, i.e. poly strings. 3) Power: I am not a big guy (5'7, 130 lbs), so this would help without having to switch to a more powerful racquet (I find racquets like the Pure Drive have power that is pretty hard to control) 4) Improved spin capability would be nice since I don't generate a lot, but it's not necessary If anybody has any ideas, that would be cool! Ideally, I'd test it for a bit and then decide if I want to buy a reel, but I definitely don't want to be one of those guys who is tinkering all the time with their string. I just want to know what's out there, but I'm not sure what to test first. Thanks!
