Strings for Wilson Pro Staff 95s {2015 - Black and Red, not the (predominantly) White edition}

Hi!

So I'm currently using a Prince Phantom 100 (with the O3 ports and all!). It's strung with Volkl Cyclone at the moment.

I had the chance to use my friend's old PS95s (2015) and fell in love with it, I think it's such an easy racquet to transition to after having played with the PP100. The problem was that the racquet was unused for a while and the strings were a year old which meant that they snapped within literally the first 5 minutes of rallying.

I was wondering since I now have an unstrung PS95s - which strings would work best in it such that it brings out the racquets assets (spin, comfort etc.) while maintaining or improving control without sacrificing on power, or hopefully with a boost in that department since the racquet is pretty underpowered.

I was thinking of the Volkl Psycho hybrid - wasn't sure which gauge or what tension though;
Or even a hybrid of Luxilon + a syn gut;
Or Wilson's Duo Hybrid Spin;
Or a full bed of Revolve;
Or Wilson's old: Rip Spin, or its old Spin Effect strings?

Would love to hear your thoughts!

BTW, if the PS95s does not have amplifeel tech, what're the black strips in the handle?

Cheers and thanks a ton and a half!

I used 15G polys strung at high tensions like 58+. The stringbed is super forgiving. Expect to lose strings often. I experimented with one for 2 weeks. It cost me way too much in string, and I have my own stringing machine. I leaded it up to a bit over 12 ounces, adding most of the lead to the hoop.

Any particular set up which provided you with controlled power, and gave you that extra pop, spin and comfort?

Wilson Ripspin/Revolution was nice and lasted OK. I also liked PHT, but for different reasons - more spin, nice crisp, punchy feel. Most of the pop came from leading it up. It is a very light racquet. Comfort comes in weight, a forgiving string bed, and the flex. Overall, though, I prefer it's brethren with tighter string patterns. If I want a bit of help on my second serves, I'll go with a 97s before a 95s.
