My last racquet strung for this year was my own.
A Head Radical 18x19 racquet strung with Luxilon gut 63 lbs. Fortunately I ordered a few sets when the big sale was going on.
Strung a lot of racquets this year and ended with my own.

My backup Ezone 98 at 57 lbs hyper g1.15 which was up 5 lbs from my usual tension for that stick. I strung it after the first round of an all indoor tournament where I couldn't keep the ball in when swinging hard. It worked great at 57 and me and my partner won our division for my 5th and last 3.5 title before bumping to 4.0 next year.

Expensive string jobs right there.
I don't know why but I always picture luxilon 4g as the most premium poly out there. Always wanted to try it but afraid I'll like it too much.

I just string for myself. I did my Prince Mono at 60 with a hybrid of nylon 16 mains and Isospeed Baseline 17 crosses. It plays great for me and I had to cut out the Solinco Tour Bite 19 I was given to try in its place. No thanks! Give me my cheap nylon and Isospeed hybrid and I’m back to hard hitting heaven.

Wilson Prostaff 97 RFA. Tecnifibre Black Code 4S @ 56/Wilson Revolve @ 54. Both 17g.

Hoping to get just as spin-friendly and crisp response with my Solicon FB but with better tension maintenance.

and/or are they patterns you enjoy stringing with??
