I admit, I was a huge skeptic about L-TEC strings. The claims being made seemed to be unlikely. From years of experience with plenty of polys I knew for a fact that ALL polys lose tension. I knew for a fact that no poly would last more than 4 - 6 hours with my hard-hitting style of play. I knew for a fact that any string strung below 60lbs in my PDR would be impossible to control.
After talking with you I was even more skeptical, as you well know. I only agreed to mail my racquet to you because you offered free stringing. It came back within 3 days and I planned to test it after my USTA league match. After getting blown out the first set, 2 - 6, I figured I had nothing to lose and broke it out. I was already in a bad mood and after the first few balls sailed long I was not impressed. But the feel and power I was getting felt much different than anything else I had tried. As I adjusted, it is almost as if control magically appeared. There was plenty of power, but the control I found amazed me. I came storming back to take the second set 7 - 6 (7 - 3). As I continued the match I found myself getting bolder and the results paid off as I easily took the 3rd set and match 6 - 3.
At this point I was intrigued. The next time out I liked it even more. The third time I figured the performance would fade, but it did not. I was at 5 hours and the performance was exactly the same as it was in my USTA match. This is when I called you to let you know how unbelievable the strings were. I ended up playing for an additional 10 hours before they finally broke! The performance dipped slightly at around the 9 hour mark, but still played excellent right up until the time they broke. All that I "knew" about polys was proven wrong. I admit it. Now I need to learn how to string them at lower tensions like you. I will be in touch. Thanks for being patient with me and convincing me to give them a fair shot. If not for you I would have never tried them.
Nahad plays with a Babolat Pure Drive Roddick and used the L-TEC Premium OS 16 Neon mains with L-TEC Premium 4S crosses at a reference tension of 49 lbs.
