Yeah being a bit of a novice, stuff like Strings and tension is a bit foreign to me, at the moment I have the Babolat Hurricane strings, Ill see how I go and there is a pro tennis shop just down the road so I may duck in there and get some advice and make some adjustments, I would like to add some more power but not at the sacrifice of control and placement. I have read a Poly string is great for Top Spin players?You sound a very similar player to me, Dewy006. Similar racquet, too; I run a Babolat Aeropro Drive GT (sounds like a bloody car, therefore is good ).
I'd suggest playing around with a few different strings to see. The hardest part for me, playing with heavy topspin, was finding the correct balance. For me a string more suited to power was very hard to adjust to, but eventually added another dimension to my game. I'd have a look at Cobra strings - they're what I use and I love them.
Cheers Caesar Yeah like I said the whole string thing is new to me, Poly, Gut, Natural Gut, Multi Seems the best way is just a trial and error, as long as I avoid having to restring every month or so, I'll start basic and then work out from there.You're using a poly string at the moment (or rather a copoly, which is basically the same thing these days).
IIRC Hurricane is a very spin-friendly string. You can probably find a poly string that is a bit stiffer and gives you a bit more power. As your strokes improve though, you will find yourself generating all the power you need.
I string with multis at the moment, which I find gives a good balance - I can string it quite tight, so it doesn't feel like a trampoline. Only tradeoff is that the durability is terrible and it is costing me a fortune. I think I will switch to stringing with poly mains and multi crosses.
Long way to come over from Perth to get my ass handed to me
Would be interested but on the wrong side of the world at the moment
You'd have to pm Dannnnnnnnnnnnnnn. He's in hardcore study mode until Thursday, and has only been checking tapatalk. Replies to pm's quick though.No worries
Sounds like we've got a few together with Chris on board. One of Dannn or Dewy would make it 4, nice even number
Almost three months late, not a bad response rate eh?
My response time is equally impressive!Almost three months late, not a bad response rate eh?
Haven't played in far too long. Miss being out on a court. Really need to get back into it soon.
