post urs as ive posted mine
polytech topspin mains / last of my yamaha secret string crosses
which is hotter?
aaarrgghhhhhh 2 that both match their frames....
I would have to say the KPS just because i think the frame looks better
Umm, I'd have to go with the K88. I need to get some pics up of my racquets, but mine are pretty worn down... :neutral:
i kinda like the prestige...
im so back and forth on which frame i like better playing wise...
k88 wins! lol love the black and the color sceme with the strings..good work Kal
i took that kps88 out for a hit last night and that is actually a very nice string combo for that frame...
my tournament string that wilson gives me is luxilon alu power flouro / nxt so i will throw some of that in next to prep for my upcoming tournament. ill get pix up as soon as i can.
Just strung...PS Big Ace 17/ Gamma Syn Gut 17 in TF 320 VO2
Kal-El what frames are u currently using when it comes to the big matches and tournaments? Have you done any customizing to them?
still playing the prestige right now. however, transitioning to the kps88 currently. the more i hit with it, and get used to the frame, the more confident i am getting with it
Babolat Pure Drive Cortex with SPPP
luxilon alu flouro / yamaha secret string
redcode mains and gosen crosses
Nothing special - but just had my Babolat Aero Storm re-strung...
> Luxilon ALU Power mains, Wilson NXT crosses.
tflash 290 w/ blue gear
rds 001 mid 2008 with blue gear mains/big ace crosses
rds 001 mid 2008 w/ m2
Nice another AS user. I've been wanting to try Luxilon string, but they are just a bit too expensive for me. I can get Focus Hex, CF, BA for 8 bucks and I get 2 stringjobs because I hybrid.
Have you played with this stick yet?
Please do some short review, thanks.
wow that new yonex is a hot racquet
supermario, how does that hybrid of redcode and gosen play? And at what tension are you stringing at?
I strung it too high for my liking on the k88..i used it at 61/63...just feels too hard for me...im going to go like 57lbs and test it again...
^^ okay, thanks, man!
yum to the toes or yum to the strings? :lol:
Strung this up last night. My first ever two-piece job.
MSV Focus Hex 1.23 mains @ 52lbs with Technifibre Promix 17g @ 51lbs.
HAHAHA Kenny, what a boss :lol:
She's beautiful sir, how long have you had her?
SPPP at 54lbs
why the Babolat stencil job?
just wanted to lol...i like the look
hey, supermario, quick question. I'm getting a kblade tour after demoing many rackets, and I'm weighting it up to about 12.5 oz. with lead tape @ 3 and 9 o'clock. I found a set of sppp in my bag from several months ago, and I'm hoping it will play well in a stiff frame sort of like the kps88. Opinions?
String it up in the mid 50s and it should be a beast
topspin cyber blue mains, topspin cyber flash crosses, both 1.20 @ 54 lbs
^ looks good...now u just need some lead tape on that baby
nah im happy with it stock..
how does that play aimr75?
Thinking about a similar setup with my k90.
Ouch! Any TE with this set-up?
plays very well, good amount of power but not too much (aided by the blue), and still feels crisp due to the cyberflash.. but not harsh
I had tried cyber blue with gut before this, and cyber blue is way too soft for that setup, i think the blue, given its more powerful too, is not really suited unless its coupled with a stiffer string.. but i like the feeling of a crisp string bed
if youre interested, i have a couple extra new reels of both, i live in melbourne, so shipping would be cheap email@example.com
Ive hit with this setup for 3 sessions, and no signs of arm issues.. i thought there would have been some issues as ive had arm problems in the past, but none thus far.
I have been reluctant to move to a full poly setup due to my past arm issues, but have slowly graduated to it, was hitting full multi at one stage, then multi/poly hybrid, now full poly
will see a bit longer term if there are any issues, if i do notice any pain, might go back to a multi/poly setup
. . . Would you possibly be looking to sell that?
Let me think on that.....
.....ok, I've thought about it and I've decided to keep it.
I love my MW200G. Such a fantastic frame. I just wish I had more than one myself.
Any of you guys tried Luxilon BBA? I made and order for some PPFO, but they were out of stock and the guy at TW told to try this string. Any of you tried it in a hybrid?
Damn, it isn't often I run across one these. Well, if you ever change your mind, contact me!
Hey super mario you did a good job on that stencil. what type of paint did you use? and how'd you get the lines so perfect? I wanna do the stencil on my pure drive+
Will do mate. There are a few around with owners willing to sell, but they're asking for silly money.
Thanks man...i just use the regular ink you can get off TW... and went right across the frame with it. The Babolat logo is the easiest to stencil
Which of these setups did you like best in your MGPMP in terms of power and spin, and whats the durability like on big ace 1.17 mm??. I'm assuming the leather is the only modification you made to the stick.
Exactly, some are going for ridiculous prices.
