i played tennis and love to share experience with all tennis players all over the world.
anybody using the Wilson KFactor KFive 98? can you share your current stringing, if possible:
- mains = (type of string, gauge size, @ tension in lbs)
- crosses = (type of string, gauge size, @ tension in lbs)
my current stringing is as follows:
- mains = Wilson Hyperlast Spin 19 @ 48 lbs
- crosses = Wilson Synthetic Gut 16 @ 52 lbs (actually the one comes in a package of Hyperlast Spin 19 Hybrid)
somehow i feel my current stringing is too stiff, hence i'm looking for different stringing scheme.
i also applied the same configuration to my Kobra TeamFX with great feel, so i'm wondering why it feels too stiff with the KFive98.
any input will be useful.
thanks a lot guys!2 AnswersTennis1 decade ago
i recently have my racquet strung with Ashaway Crossfire 19/16 with the following tensioning:
- mains = aramid 19 @ 52 lbs
- crosses = synth gut 16 @ 54 lbs
previously i had it strung with Luxilon BB as both mains and crosses at same tension but it felt really stiff to my wrist and elbow.
my coach would rate me 3.0-3.5 by NTRP levels and i played mostly serve and volleys.
do you have any suggestion on my current stringing?
your inputs are most welcome.
thanks folks!1 AnswerTennis1 decade ago
recently i found a friend who hits his serve with heavy topspins. at deuce court it really moves further out of reach to my backhand. if i move earlier to anticipate, he will quickly change to a slice to the sideline. any idea is appreciated.5 AnswersTennis1 decade ago
I was planning to buy Head Airflow 7 racquet for my girlfriend. She thinks (and i concur) that after 3 months played with Head Ti S6 she should move to slightly heavier racquet. Are there any player experienced this racquet? Please share what you think of this racquet and if possible, also include your string and tension. Many thanks, folks!2 AnswersTennis1 decade ago

when i was training with my trainer, i saw the student next court is very lazy with his strokes, esp backhand. he just sort of let his upper arm fixed at sides and just waved his hand about elbow and snap his wrist. not to mention his footwork. his trainer is yelling at him and tried to boost his spirit. i feel like he's under big pressure. any suggestion? should i do anything about him?6 AnswersTennis1 decade ago
please also describe the moment when the racquet frame breaks, was the frame in friction with the court, whether you were hitting hard or not, how fast the incoming ball, racquet brand/type and string tensions you were using. many thanks.4 AnswersTennis1 decade ago
