Terry Curve: I have been playing with a poly in my Wilson pro staff 90 blx for about two weeks but I don't get enough power. I want to try Wilson champions choice but I think there will be way too much power. If I'm stringing the poly at 51 should I string champions choice at 61 so I'm not being overpowered?
Tennis Warehouse: @Aditya“TheAceofSpades” Somaiah, Champion's Choice would be a great hybrid to go with. If you want a similar power/control response, try stringing the ALU Rough at 58 lbs and the Natural Gut at 60 lbs. Andy, TW
Aditya “TheAceofSpades” Somaiah: Hey Tennis Warehouse! I currently play with the juice 100 blx and have strung it at 60 pounds with the luxilon 4g rough. I have been wanting to go into a hybrid for a while now. I am mainly a baseline player who hits with spin and power but I want to control my shots without losing any of that. On volleys, I tend to be a little unstable but I get the job done. What are your recommendations on string tension for the wilson champion's choice hybrid or do you have any other string suggestions? I have played with the alu power spin in the past as well but it did not last me so long. I like a nice, crisp feel when I hit my shots. If you have any racquet suggestions I am open as well.
Samuel Spitz: I really liked these strings at 50 lbs for the first 6 hours or so. After 10 hours the string lost all of its control and was pretty much unusable. I just got my racquets strung at 50 lbs, one with full Apr and the other with rpm 17. Do you have any recommendations for strings beyond that? I'm looking for something arm friendly, full of spin, at least decent control, and tension maintenance for at least 15 hours of play.
AbahSanny: Hi. Interested to know what is the recommended tension of Champion's Choice string (natural gut in the mains, ALU Rough in the crosses) for Wilson RF97? Thank you.
Sheldon Hofstadter: I have noticed Chris said he had this hybrid stringed at 48 pounds (2:39). Does it mean both mains & crosses at the same tension? Luxilon is fairly stiffer than natural gut, and I think I've heard Fed himself strings the poly on crosses 4 or 5 pounds lower. 2nd question: some people think the rough Luxilon surface would destroy the natural gut soon. What do you think? Or should I rather use Cross String Savers with this hybrid? Thank you.
Roberto Valadez: I used the head graphene xt speedpro with the gut in the mains at 57 and the alu in the crosses at 54 and Dude! This is the best stringbed!!! The feel, power, control, and comfort is amazing! U need to try this setup if your atleast a 4.0+ player!!
Tennis Warehouse: @Roberto Valadez, For more durability, put the gut in the crosses. For more power, put the gut in the mains. Andy, TW
Roberto Valadez: Should i put the gut in the mains or crosses for more durability and power?
Elliott Thomas: How's the tension maintenance ? How long does the playability last ? I received only one setup for Xmas , so I want to keep it as long as possible , does the tension maintenance plays on durability ?
john speedy: tw please can you answer this is urgent is gut in the mains more comfortable and gut in the crosses please tell me
Tangkap Leleh:+Tennis Warehouse I used Luxilon Original String before and and I strung it at 62 pounds for my Oversize Prince Thunder Dome Racquet. I found it very uncomfortable and it cause me arm and shoulder strain. I plan to switch to Wilson Natural Gut 16G string. Any suggestion about the suitable tension for my oversize racquet as I like to hit the ball flat and hard with a little bit of spin.
Harry LEVI (King): Hello me again, i really want to try this set up but there really expensive, if i use luxilon alu power rought then used the hybrid with a cheeper synthetic gut would it come to a similer result? and could you maybe do a video that compares natural gut to synthietic especially when in a hybrid.
Harry LEVI (King): are there seperate strings that i can buy to imitate this hybrid? with the same out come?
BlackAce X: Hey TW, im 15 and want a string with control and spin for my speed graphene pro. Thanks
john speedy: what would feel better gut in the mains or in the cross for an offensive player who wants control and spin with some depth
Maxime Meis: Hi TW, I currently play with a pro staff 95 with regular alu power in the mains and natural gut in the crosses. I was wondering if you could recommend some multis or synthetic guts in the mid price range to replace the natural gut. I'm looking for something not too soft so (with the help of silicon spray) the main can slice back in place. Thanks
Tennis Warehouse: @Deklan Hopcroft, Try stringing the mains at 57 lbs and the crosses at 54 lbs. Andy, TW
Deklan Hopcroft: What tension would be good with the natural gut in the mains and the Luxilon ALU Rough in the cross? I have a Babolat Aeropro Drive.
Saqib Mirza: How did the play testers find the durability and playability?
