OK, I love this string. I have several threads about stringing going but I want to get specific so that the string experts can help. I have many packs of VS gut 16 touch and I want to make it last. I LOVE it in a full bed but I want to hybrid it with something cheaper in the crosses to make it last and possibly tame the power . Here are my specific details to help you help me. ...I play with a becker mid 11 ...I have broken strings in this stick quicker than others ...I serve and volley a lot and have 1hbh...semiwestern forhand...a lot of top off both wings..and I supply my own power ...I have strung the full bed at 60 lbs and I think that I can use less power...if I strung another full bed, I would probably go 62 and I think arm would be fine as long as full bed. ...I am very careful about my arm (no poly) so if I had less power with crosses, I would be looking at possibly going lower if you thought I could still control it. ...I want something that will last as long as possible and allow me to play the gut hopefully until it breaks. strings that I was thinking about..head rip control, gosen micro 16, etc..... as an aside, I do have one pack of gaucho gut 15L (huge gauge though...heavy ropes) and I did think about using it in the crosses for a couple of stringings. It damn sure ain't gonna break. OK, let me know what you reccomend and also ballpark tension if you could.
