I'm gonna try a full bed of Kevlar at #60. :shock:

I'm also gonna try a full bed of 20-gauge syn gut badminton string. Hope it survives the stringing. :shock::shock:

Both are being shipped as we speak. Will report :twisted:

Ooo those sound interesting. Well all joking aside, I don't think I'll have a problem. I'm in my mid-30s, I have a 2HBH and I hit with loots of topspin. From what I've heard, TE is caused mostly by OHBH or improper form. My form is good.

Currently I play ~6 hrs per week with a full bed of BM at #62. I just want something with less give.

And the badminton string is just for a hoot. I can't break 18g nylon so I thought I'd try some 20g string. It was cheap and I thought it would be fun to try, as long as it doesn't break during stringing, which it may. :)

considering you're hitting w/ so much topspin, it's really hard to believe that you're not breaking 18g nylon/syn gut within an 1 or 2. :confused:

wuppy,
as already mad dog1 said, something must be a problem with hitting a lot of topspin and not breaking 18ga syn gut.

i'm getting 48 this year and i hit with lot of topspin and polys don't last longer than 10 hours till they break (1.25mm - that's 16L ga), and that is combined practice and match/point-play. if i just do practice, than it's more like 6-7 hours for the poly to go, and that is with a very soft multi as a cross.
