Best string for Wilson Blade

by TN

I’ve found my go-to racquet. It’s the Wilson Blade 98 (2015) that I’ve leaded up to 345 grams (strung) and put a leather grip on it to make it more head light. I truly love the control-oriented yet modern feel which allows me to take big cuts at the ball.

Right now I’m experimenting with strings and would love to get some opinions. What I’m looking for is a softer string with good spin and decent durability. Power is not a problem.

What I’ve tested so far:

Luxilon Big Banger (22 kg) – too stiff for my liking.
Yonex Poly Tour Pro (pink, 23 kg) – not bad, but not a winner. Don’t get the feel I like.
Weisscannon Scorpion – (23 kg) – decent, but not enough spin.
Solinco Tour Bite Soft (1.20 gauge, 23 kg) – Best so far, good spin and soft, but dropped tension quickly.

Get any of these strings at Tennis Express.

What I’m testing right now:

Völkl Cyclone 17g (22 kg) – Used to be my favourite string for the money, but lately I’ve felt it too stiff. Haven’t tried it in this racquet though.
Weisscannon Silverstring (22 kg) – This is a good string that I’ve only played twice before in an old Head Radical Twintube Zebra. Interesting to see how it performs in a more modern racquet.

What I want to test (please add suggestions):

Völkl Cyclone Tour – to get a softer, wrist/arm-friendly feel.
Tourna Big Hitter Black 7 – soft, but maybe too lively.
Babolat RPM Blast + VS Touch hybrid – expensive, but arm-friendly and good feel.

I use Luxilon big banger Alu 16L rough… I string @ 51lbs. Gives a sweet feel, good ball pocketing, the rough gives better RPM too….

Yeah, Luxilon Alu Rough is a nice string. Also recommend it in a hybrid with natural gut.

Revolve is a great string for the Wilson blade. It feels firm and flexible at the same time.

I agree! Revolve and Revolve Spin are nice strings.
