Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I guess Solinco Tour Bite could be a good option for you. It is very uncomfortable but offers great spin. I can also recommend Volkl Cyclone 16. It does offer more spin than Luxilon Spin and keeps the tension better.

In that case, I suggest any of these three strings:

1. Volkl Cyclone
2. Tourna Big Hitter Black 7
3. Dunlop Black Widow

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

There are sooooooooooooooo many strings that it is hard to suggest one out of them. Just go to TW and choose the one with the material and characteristics that you want.
If you think that is a big headache, just go with tone on the neck of your racket or trust it to stringer at your pro shop.

Playtest both of them and go with the one you like more. We can all give our opinions, but you're the one who's going to be spending the money and using the strings.

This.

I loved RPM Blast until I started to feel pain in my elbow for the first time in my life (playing 3-4 times per week). Looking for something similar but easier on the elbow, I started playing with RPM Team. Waaayyyy more comfortable, and the slight decrease in power is a non-issue for me.

Bottom line is that no matter what we say, you will be the best judge of what feels best for you. Maybe a pro shop could point you in the right direction, since you could describe your play style to them. Good luck!

I hit a pretty hard flat ball so it works well for me. It's really great for controlling the ball too. i string it pretty low are 53 lbs. hasn't broken, have em for like 4 months. gonna change me out here soon,. but definitely a great string.

Thanks for the review. I have to try it sometime too, but I am now addicted to Volkl Cyclone.

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I've been using natural gut 58lbs. Looking for new strings, anyone has any recommendations?

Anyone used Babolat monofilaments?
