Wilson Hyper Carbon Tour 90inch

Was looking through some old tennis bags of mine and ran across a Wilson Pro Staff Hyper Carbon Tour 90in. The one that has yellow inside the frame. Not sure why but I am interested in hitting with the racquet. Racquet was given to me but never played with it. Have allot of string laying around. What would you guys recommend putting in the racquet for strings and tension? I don't even know the specs on this racquet. I'm sure gut would be awesome but not going there on just a racquet I want to hit with occasionally. Play with RF97 now so used to the weight.

I would a good round thin copoly at a low sub 50 tension..

This was the racquet Roger used when he won his fist Grand Slam title in 2003 at Wimbledon when he defeated Mark Philippoussis in straight sets.

It was used in 4 Grand Slams in total right up until the French Open of 2004 where he switched to use then newly released nCode.

Very cool, thanks. I have some Polyfibre Hightec 1.10 and Isospeed Baseline 1.20 round poly. Will give that a try at 47 or 49.

I bet that does hit good. Too much money just to go out and hit a few balls. Wonder if Federer ever played with that racquet with gut/poly or was he still just using all gut?
16 gauge gut and ALU rough is what he has used since he switched to the 90. I have used it in the Ncode 90 and it is just incredible.

i have tried 4g soft with gut crosses in the tour 90 before at 48/52, and it was really nice. However I’d say gut mains , 4g crosses at 52/49 would be nicer - but am yet to try it. When I do I’ll report back.

Thanks

Any chance you remember the tension ??
You're in luck. I actually write down the tensions of all my string jobs (I do my own). It was 53 in the mains (Klip Legend 16g) and 49 cross (4G 17g). I use a simple drop weight stringing machine, for what it's worth. I vary the tensions by a lb or two once in a while but 53/49 is what I usually go with. The strings last quite a while especially when I'm playing players at my level (3.5). But if I get a hitting session with a coach who is deliberately hitting hard then yeah the strings lose tension from the pounding and it will be time for a new string job. I usually avoid having those types of hitting sessions until the string job is at least a few weeks old.

Where did you get that racket from? It's not like the stock version. The length of the grip is shorter than the stock version.
