Recently I decided that I wanted to find the best possible string for my game, and there's a lot of people here so I can get input from a variety of players. To start, I'm a high school player (#2 singles) and I suppose I'm in the 4.0 range. I play mostly on hard courts, but do play on har-tru during the summers. I like to play all over the court, so I'm looking for a string that has power from the baseline, but still have decent feel for when I come in to net. My racquet: Wilson blx 6.1 95 18x20 Strings/tensions I've tried Luxilon alu power rough @ 55lbs: I can't really comment on this sadly, because I didn't really pay attention to my strings when I first got it. I had played with it for 3 months when my high school season started, and it sucked. Luxilon alu power rough @ 49lbs: I decided to go lower this time because I wasn't getting enough power at 55lbs, and after doing some guesswork and research, I figured 49 might work out. It played amazing for a few days, but now I'm overhitting with it a bit more. So I think 49lbs is the minimum I should be at. Alien Black Diamond @ 50lbs: I just played with it tonight, and it was weird. When I had the ball it felt..muted, I guess. When I hit the ball it was softer, but the feeling never really reached my hands. It's hard to explain. Anyway, I was hitting deep enough with it, although it lacked power. I didn't have much time to practice volleys or serves with it, so I'll come back when I do. That's it so far. So, what I'm looking for. 1) String that performs all over the court 2) Preferably under $20 3) Holds tension decently (Not as important, can still be poly) 4) Not a hybrid. I don't want the poly to cut the other string, forcing me to restring early. Thanks for any advice/input!
