Signum Pro Poly plasma best gauge


New User
Hi, i have Dunlop F3.0 Tour (18x20), what at your opinion is the best "Signum Pro Poly plasma" gauge for this raquet? Also suggest please a tension ))

I have used the 16 G, feels stiff even at lower tensions on a dense string pattern. It is a durable string, so I would consider using 17G or thinner especially if you don't break strings often.


I have used 17 Ga SPPP at 45# in a LM Instinct Tour XL. 16x19 pattern, so the feel was OK. For your 18x20, probably suggest going down to maybe 40-42#.


As what everyone suggested, if you are not a string breaker go for the thinnest gauge available. do note that it will have a bit less tension maintenance compared to 16ga but still good IMO.

Hi, thanks for reply, you suggest so low tensions (45, 48, 40) lbs i usually strung at 25kg - 24 kg (other strings) , the ball will not fly away? Thanks


SPPP is noted for being a good all around string with good tension maintenance. It is certainly not a high powered poly. You really need to string it low to give the strings a chance to perform. Too high, i.e. > 50# and it becomes boardy. Since it loses tension slowly, it will be boardy for a while. Keep in mind that you are not a pro and don't need the tensions they use.

SPPP has been my hybrid poly for many many years and still use it even after having tried a few.

I have a Prince Tour Diablo with string tension specs of 53-63. I string the 17 gauge SPPP at 49 lbs.

Thanks - is Iontec even listed on there? Can't find it!
Not sure but if you can't find it clear everything first, then look. You may have some limiting parameters entered. But I assume if you can't find it, it's not there.

Is SPPP 1.23 a reasonable choice on the following frames? Tension (low tension preferred)?
