Strings for Babolat Ps100 (2016)

#1
Hi !
I now play on the new babolat Pure Strike 100 and would like to know which strings you think fit this racquet best !
These days I play with Yonex Poly Tour Pro (What do you think about this setup?), a little powerful @ times.
I'm thinking about trying Hyper G, Revolve, MSV Focus Hex and maybe Kirschbaum P2. I know they are all different but... What do you think of this 5 strings on Ps100, what would be the different feels, results, up and lows ?

My buddy uses this and has done well with the Signum Pro Tornado, I know that sucker is pricy but all of the ones you mentioned are more/less in the same price range and definately worth trying!

Ok, I note that one. Thx.
And between the ones I mentioned any comparisons, feels, tastes ?

I've hit with the PS 100 since they came out. I've tried many different combinations but I'm really comfortable with a gut/poly combination. Good control and power and lasts longer than straight poly.

sounds like poly tour pro gives too much power so go with focus hex or hyper g which both will give more control than that.
U r right ! The Yonex gives too much power ! :confused: I think I'll try he hyper g next ! Any opinion about revolve or revolve spin ?

I've had the ps100 for a couple of months and i love stringing it up with hyper g. It just feels great.
Well, hyper G seems to be the right answer ! Thx. Which gauge / tension do you use ?

So far digging Wilson Revolve Spin 17ga on my 2016 PS98 16x19. Tried MSV Focus Hex, Technifibre Black Code 4S, the Revolve Spin so far on these racquets. I have a set of Hyper-G and Revolution that I'm eager to try, but I want to use up my Reel of Revolve Spin before I mess around with other strings. I'll probably keep two with my normal setup and use one for string experimenting.

I know it's in a different racquet, but here's a little comparison on my experience with these 3 strings with the Project One Seven"

All strings were used in the 17 guage version. 50-54lbs.

Power: MSV Focus Hex>Wilson Revolve Spin=TFBC4S
Spin: Revolve Spin>TFBC4S> MSV Focus Hex
Comfort: MSV Focus Hex=Wilson Revolve Spin>TFBC4S
Control: Revolve Spin>TFBC4S>MSV Focus Hex
Feel: Revolve Spin=TFBC4S=MSV Focus Hex

Overall: Wilson Revolve Spin for me. Hope this helps.

Of course, it helps !!! Thanx !!!
I think I'll focus on Hyper G and the new Revolve spin
Thanx for all that details ! (and don't forget to tell me your thoughts after trying HyperG)

I use 16L at 52 lbs
Ok ! Thx !!!

For the moment I've good feelings with PTP, maybe sometimes too powerfull and lacks of touch.
Next playtest I have to do : Revolve, Lynx, Hyper G, PLX, Revolution 18.

I've recently bought this racket stringed with RPM Blast at 22 kgs (48.5 lbs). Added 3 g to 3, 6 and 12 o'clock each. More stability, but enough power and head speed. Planning on buying cheaper strings like Cyber Spin. Have anyone tried smth similar?

What tensions suits you best? Have you experimented with different tensions for mains and crosses?
You had me on that point ! Maybe I have to up the tension a little bit (I play around 50) since I think PTP is good but just too powerfull sometimes.
And my first thoughts (reviews) was for the black version that I didn't really like : stiffer, less tension maintenance and more power than the yellow that I prefer and like btw !
