Is this the Hawk? By Head?
Not sure I am guessing it is Hawk Pro. It just has Head Pro Player stamped on the string
How is the string then ?
I tried hawk 17g as a cross. It is great. Holding tension okay, feels reliable unlike some soft polys. Most importantly, it really lets the mains slip well. It is like rpm only white.

Tourna BHB7 / Babolat Syn Gut
so why the babolat logo?
pro staff looks sick
A little late, but thanks for the email reply. I was able to ask Stan for set of that new string. I've been hitting with it for a couple days now. It seems to be a new tour bite or something. It's definitely softer than tour bite ( ), but much better than tour bite soft.
Because Pete Sampras had the Babolat logo on his PS 88 (even though that's the KPS 88, which was meant for him too). Pete Sampras used Babolat natural gut as his string, this guy didn't, so I don't get why he put the Babolat stripes logo. Probably to emulate Pete?

For those of you having trouble shooting pictures, there is a macro mode on most modern cameras. The logo looks like a "flower." If you press the button, and nothing happens, turn your mode to camera logo instead of green auto. This might also be listed as P (program) on certain cameras... most phone/point and shoot cameras have AWESOME macro capabilities...
Sorry for the poor quality in the first 2 pics. If i remember well the camera was set in "Text Mode", that's why it didn't come exactly as planned. Won't happen again.
Thanks for the thought...
As for the string, cyclone plays very crisp with a good amount of pop. Pink versus other colors or cyclone...very similar. Maybe a tad bit more comfy.

^^^ Nice to see those pictures of the Rossignol F200! I once played with this racquet and loved it. So flexible, yet solid, with lots of power and plow-through. Also really liked the open 16 x 17 string pattern, it made topspin shots so easy.
Which strings have you been using in the Rossignol?
I picked up the Rossignol F200 off of thee bay, I restrung it.
I haven't had a chance to hit with it.
I'm in Alberta, Canada & we got snow, so next spring I'll try it out.
Here's another picture of the Rossignol F200
Babolat Tonic+/Luxilon 4G 16L in my Pro Staff 85
Nice string job, SpinToWin. I like that white/natural color combo in your classic Pro Staff.
Curious to hear what you think of it. Every once in a while I hit with my F200, and each time I am impressed how well it plays. Great racquet. Spin, Power, Forgiveness. The APD of the 1980ies (but much softer on the arm, of course).
No indoor tennis center anywhere near?
Yes we have indoor courts, but they are about an hour away.
I like playing outdoors.
An hour away, well that's quite a distance for one or two hours of tennis, I must admit. So I hope spring will come early to Alberta in 2015.
Babolat Tonic + Ball Feel/Head Hawk 17 in my Pro Staff 90
Volkl Cyclone 17 @ 50lbs / Klip Synthetic Gut 16 @ 48.5 lbs
I don't think this is the right set up for me...still got to keep looking
Try stringing the syn gut 3 pounds higher than the Cyclone. The strings' stiffness will match better and the string bed will feel more uniform.
Hm...I'm actually trying to reduce the stiffness. Perhaps Cyclone isn't my string of choice then!
Yup. I will give that a shot next!!
I hear it is a pain to string though
