    Nice info, but I don't think everything is correct on that list.

    Haas for example. Didn't he say that he can't/won't use Luxilon because of his shoulder? I saw his match yesterday and his strings didn't look like Luxilon Alu...

    It's just outdated. This list was published some time ago.

    This just lists their paintjobs, both for strings and racquets. I guess we really don't have any way of knowing whether those tensions are correct, unless some pro stringers on here would care to enlighten us.

    That list is worthless if they think Nadal really uses PHT.

    It's DURALAST FFS...

    Full gut at 75 lbs actually... There may be errors on this list, but it gives you a general idea of the tensions at least...

    This was just cut and pasted material from sponsorship list. I doubt these are what they are actually playing with. First the racquest are definetly off, and Nadal doesn't use Pro Hurricane Tour, he ones he uses are discontinued dura(something)...

    Thanks, very nices site. but it has G Canas using the Wilson Enduro Tour as his string. I don't think that is right. He has been using the Kirschbaum for last 5-6 years now. it is distinctively Yellow in color.

    Pro Hurricane Tour Nadal is just Tour Duralast... you'd think they'd lie a bit better seeing as how PHT is tan and what he's using is yellow.

    This has been proven, several times to be an inacurate list, fyi. There are several pro stringers on the boards that could more accurately answer questions about pro setups.

    I'd love to see an updated list. The only other list I found when I searched was from about 75 years ago.
