Tennis Strings


The sound I've been waiting to hear for a long time now. I hated the string that i was trying for the first time. Toalson RENCON Devil Spin125 but I was too cheapo to cut it and restring.

Real glad that I finally snapped it.

So this would be the first and last time I will be playing with poly string?

It has always been multifilament strings for me until Gamma Ruff 16, that I have been using since the 90s, was no longer in production.

I have a love-hate relationship with this poly string. 

On one hand, it produces a very clean snappy feel with every strike but the down side is that I lose a shitload of power (I play with high tension 60-62 lbs) and it felt like I was playing with a wooden plank.

Then again, it forces me to generate my own power and to rely less on technology. I actually felt myself playing stronger over the past couple of months.

Maybe I will end up with poly string again despite all the bitching? #犯贱

Or I probably should ask the tennis shop guy for advice.

Any advice from the floor?
