L-TEC Strings in Donnay Formula
I have played extensively with the hybrid sets you sent and,
frankly, I think they are the absolutely best strings I have ever used.
I asked Roman Prokes to string my racquets with L-Tec and he told
me he never heard of the strings and "Didn't have time" to read the
paragraph of instructions you had sent. I went on to another stringer
in Manhattan who also had never heard of L-Tec, but who went over your
instructions with me and strung my racquets.
I am using the new Donnay Formula racquet (the same one Bethanie
Mattek Sands used to win the Australian Open Mixed Doubles) and with
your hybrid set of strings, it was magic. Great power, great control,
great feel...just perfect. Much better than any other combination I've
used and I've tried most of the Luxilon strings, many others and I
usually pair them with Babolat VS gut. Anyway, L-Tec is the best
string I've ever used.
I am, by the way, a former High School, College and tournament
player--a 5.0 and a lefty (I actually played Rod Laver once at
Kalamazoo--1956-- when he was under 18 and I was about 17--yes, I
lost!). In college I hurt my arm and had to give up tennis. I
switched to being a righty for everything and took up tennis again when
I was about 31 years old. It took me years to be able to play at all.
Finally, after several years I got pretty good as a righty, won
tournaments in my 40's and 50's was rated a 4.5 player. I hit with tennis pros regularly (2-3 times a week), I
mostly just hit and I never play doubles. I know my strings--I've hit
a lot of balls!
