Wilson Hyper Carbon Tour 90inch

#1
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.
