What are your opinions on the string? What would be a nice hybrid with Black Code in the mains?
Its an okay string, I would do Prince Premier or Babolat VS in the crosses with this.
Search function.... there are at least 20 different threads I can remember on this string...
2nded on the Gut crosses
What's a good tension to string it at?
Anyone know a good tension that still keeps it comfortable?
black code is an excellent string, very soft, with lots of spin and power. I strung my black code a little on the looser side. Note the first hour or so you play with it it may seem very loose or powerful, but once it breaks it its amazing.
What tension keeps it comfortable?
umm well my t-fight has its tension between 49-57 andi strung it at 51, next time i will proably string it at 52... hope that helped.
i rmb stringing it for someone around 45 with 55 in the crosses(babolat addiction) and he loved it, although he did request to go up 2 pounds in the mains and go down 3 pounds in the crosses,
I string mine at 57lbs, still comfortable at that tension (but I do hybrid with a multi in the crosses).
Tension is a relatively subjective thing. Whats comfortable for some, is terrible for others. In my experience with 17g Black Code, it plays well at around 57 lbs.
I think I'll start at 57 mains and I'm putting stamina in the crosses. What tension is good for the crosses. 59?
Personally, I did not like Black Code. It didn't have a lot of feel for me (relative to other polys) and the spin was just average. Other folks seem to like it. Perhaps it's a Tecnifibre poly thing (I didn't like Red Code either).
