Re: Recommend a type of strings!

If anyone wants to help me find a new racket please pm me! I currently use a Head LiquidMetal but it is way too light for me

Also of course knowing which strings work would be best for me too! Currently use synthetic gut (normally the black type since they are more solid at 56/58)

Spencer. Using Gosen or whatever it's called right now. I kind of hate them After every other rally the strings are all moved around and it's so annoying. I spent so much money replacing the strings! I like using the MSV Focus Hex strings. They never move on you and give you nice pop when you strike the ball. Thinking of restringing 1 racket with the MSV now, so I don't break the bank again so soon

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I just bought the ProKennex IQ Poly and I'll let you guys know. It was 50% off and ended up at 60 $US for a 660 reel which is 3-4 times less than the options above.

I'll let you know if it compares well to the other more well-known brands.

Any cheap but good poly out there?
Black Widow, by Dunlop.

Soft enough to be arm friendly (for a Poly) but also a good blend of control and power.

Anyone ever tried ProKennex? The IQ Poly is at 50% off on Tennis Warehouse and is tempting me at 60$ for 600feet...

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

Ok guys.

My strings are just breaking left and right because Im trying to go through a set of cheapish synthetic. I usually do hybrid with higher quality on the mains, as they are the ones always breaking.

Summer clay season is around the corner and I want something for mains that is durable and really not that expensive. I break 2-3 rackets a month in the summer even with expensive stuff, so I really don't want to pay too much for it.

I string myself most of the time on my vintage machine, I am a power player, about 5.5 level, and I could probably play with a wooden panel on my racket and do just as well. Really not sensitive to strings.

Thanks for suggestions!

I move, I just don't have the best footwork because I've never really been coached.

Anyway, right now I play with Gamma Synthetic Gut 16. I find it lasts about a month (playing 2-3 matches a week). I like it because it lasts a while, only costs $5, and best of all it breaks instead of losing tension. I hate the string that lasts for months and just gets loser and loser till you're forced to cut it anyway. I'd rather have my strings just break. I string myself, though, so perhaps if I had to take it somewhere I'd feel differently . I like these strings, but I'm trying to venture out and try some different kinds because I feel like I could find something better.

Anyone have any recommendations? I'm trying to stay under $10 a racket. I'd prefer some non-Gamma suggestions, as all I've ever used is Gamma and I'd like to try a different brand. Basically, I want to experiment with strings to suit my game, but I don't know where to start
You should read through this thread:

I have HEAD RIP Control on my rackets. It's a relatively long lasting multi.

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I swear by Forten Sweet 17. Almost the same feeling as the Tecnifibre multifilaments I've tried, at a very low cost.

Still using Dunlop Black Widow 16Gauge 52LBS.

I tried Volkl Cyclone 18Gaugue 55LBS. I'll have to give it another try this week, but I think it was too harsh on my wrist & elbow.

Preferably something on the durable side
Yonex poly tour spin. no power, excellent spin and durability.

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I have 2 babolat overdrive 105s, one strung with Wilson synthetic (chosen by my pro), which I really don't like at all, and one with the Babolat xcel 17 multi, which I . So much more spin and such a beautiful feel off the strings. Headed out for some singles now!
