I sure do! I have 4 rackets, all the same though.

I just switched to the Yonex RQ iS 1 Tour Mid+ from the Yonex RQ is 2 Tour.

I keep 2 with Luxilon Big Banger 16 gauge at 55 on the mains, and then the 18 gauge at 57 on the crosses.

My other two are the reverse tensions with the Big Banger 16s at 57 on the mains and the 18 gauge at 55 on the crosses.

Love the Big Banger too. Gives great top spin

I have a Monarch with the old type of nylon strings, and a narrow head. The width of the head and the length of the racquet add up to 666 mm which is the height of the net for men's tennis. Women's is higher I believe to make the game easier.

A kilo is .45 lbs i beleive. So I'm getting 25-25.91 kilos I guess.

The Big Bangers are awesome. If you have any topspin or slice in your stroke this string will really bite it, it's so good. I switched to them and can't play with anything else!
