HEAD Twin Tube Candy Cane

#2
I played last months with the Youtek Radical Pro 16x19 with combi WCUC / Lynx 18 @ 23 kg.

In my new Candy Cane it doesn't feel good @ 21.5 kg.

Anyone has a idea how its possible?

hello guys, I try to give some more information so I can get some advice from you all...

I played last months with the Youtek Radical Pro 16x19 with combi WCUC / Lynx 18 @ 23 kg.
Last week I played with a Candy Cane MP with following setup WCUC / Lynx 18 @ 21 kg.
With new Head Pro balls it was a trampoline and I had problems with the power.

Yesterday I added 6 grams of lead tape @ 12 o'clock and string my racket with Lynx 18 @ 22,5 kg.
My racket is now 362 grams and balance is 31,8 cm.

Today I played with 2 times used Head ATP balls and my problem was that I had less power then a normally want.
My slice backhand feels totally wrong....

I need some advice :). The racket feels good. My old Youtek Radical Pro feels hollow and "cheap"
I dont't now how to say it in English

I prefer power and also control. What I most like is a good feeling with the ball with long contact point. Hopefully you know what I mean ;).
I have the following strings to use: Hawk Touch 18, Lynx 18, RIP Control 17, Head SG PPPS 16, Head Reflex MLT 16.
I'm thinking to create a hybrid with Lynx / Reflex @ 22,5 / 21,5 or RIP Control 22,5 / Reflex 21,5 kg.
Is this a good option

Is my twistweight maybe to low for my slice backhand?
Is it a good option to put some lead tape a 3 and 9 o'clock for some more stability for the slice backhand.

Please guys give me some advice :)

Maybe try 16 gauge or 17 gauge. Take off the lead, 6 grams is too much to have at 12 alone on an already heavy frame, try to go with 2 grams at 12 and then put 2 grams under the grip.

For me the best feeling with the twin tube radical is multifilament main and poly cross (usually RPM Blast or Head Hawk).

Arti, yesterday I string a racket with Hawk Touch 18 @ 18 kg. I haven't played with this setup so maybe I give it a try today.
I removed the lead tape @ 12 o'clock en I have only 6 grams @ 3&9 for more stability.

Maybe I string in the other one a multi main and poly cross.
I've got RIP Control 17 or Head Reflex MLT 16?
The RIP feels a bit "dead" in a other setup.

Which multi string en poly you use and what was the tension?

RIP is quite a dead string.
I use Tecnifibre NRG2 16 @ 23 kg main and Head Sonic Pro (black color) cross @ 22 kg
