I have two questions 1. I am about to string each of my custom made head xt MP speeds with gut and a poly. The main will be Wilson natural gut 1.30 and the cross will be Yonex poly tour pro 1.25 in one and ALU power soft 1.25 mm I’m the other. I know […]
Hello Jeff, regarding poly’s and losing playability and tension and so on I found some contradiction in aging of different strings. The alu power ages nice and gets softer in tension but remains ” playable” it just loses some control but if you can adapt for that it is ok, some other strings have that […]
Re: subsequent pro racket/string overviews follwong the 2015 Open. It would be counterproductive for you to go to the trouble to research and printout player/racquet “updates.” Why? Well, I too was once a naïve pro gear hound eager to learn which racquet favorite pros were using. However some years ago I became saddened to learn […]
Thank you for taking time to answer our questions as well as for publishing your stringing analyses from the pros.

I am a 3.5 player. I am using Savage Duo with the Luxillon in the mains at 55 and the NXT at 60 in the crosses. I want as much control and topspin friendly tension as possible. Would you recommend a different tension.
Does the 4G Soft possess the same superior tension maintenance of the standard 4G 1.25? As all the stats I’ve seen reveal how softer polys display notably worse early tension loss than stiffer ones, I wonder if this holds true for the Lux 4G series as well. I’d prefer the new “soft” version as the […]
I understand and now employ your frequent advice to string all varieties of string at far lower tension than hoary tradition dictates. One notes however some recent comments here by you that softer poly is not necessarily better; this is confirmed by most pros that use monofilament from the stiffer end of the spectrum. My […]
