  5. Robin says:

    Hi David. I am really interested in the solinco string. I have always wanted to try it, but I have to buy it over the internet because I live in Norway. So I have to pay lots of shipping fees and customs when I order. So put me in the hat!

  6. Tommy Cruz says:

    I’m in!

  7. Simon Kashfi says:

    Hey, this sounds cool. Put me in! I hope I win!

  8. David Henry says:

    Robin – Sorry my friend… The contest rules in my blog post state “U.S. only”. While I would love to send it to you (if you would win the drawing), I cannot incur the high shipping and customs costs to send to Norway. Honestly, I don’t mind paying the shipping fees, but I have no idea what customs fees will be. If you’ll cover the customs fees on your end, I’ll ship it – assuming you win the drawing. Deal?

  14. David Henry says:

    Hey Carlos. Congrats to your son on being sponsored by SOLINCO? How old is he? Must be an excellent player to earn a sponsorship. Yes… SOLINCO is a great company. I talk to their Director, KT Kim, from time to time, and he is a really nice guy. I’m glad to see they are growing and gaining more popularity.

    You’re in the contest!

    Take care.

  21. Carlos says:


    He just turned 15 years old, his birthday was early February. He loves SOLINCO, they have been great to us. No complaints whatsoever.


  22. Greg says:

    Sign me up! I want to try this string again at a lower tension.

    Also, has anyone tried Solinco’s new string Barbwire? I’ve heard some of my friends who are college players have switched to it.

    I’m still looking for a string that has good access to spin+stiff at low tensions (like ALU Rough)+good tension maintenance+reasonable price for a reel…

    Good luck to everyone!

  23. David Henry says:

    Sounds good Carlos. All the best to you and your son!

  24. David Henry says:

    You’re signed up, Greg!

    I tried Barb Wire last Spring. SOLINCO sent me a sample while they were still in development. It is a very good string. The day I used it I was out playing on the clay at my club. It was windy, and I was tired – and I certainly didn’t have my best day. So… I liked it but didn’t love it – but… I probably didn’t give it a fair shot on that windy Spring day. It is a shaped string (like Tour Bite), and then it is twisted. From what I remember, it has good access to spin, it is not as stiff as Alu Power Rough, I don’t know about tension maintenance (as I didn’t measure it with my ERT 300), and it reasonably priced for a reel (much more reasonable than Alu Power Rough). I certainly recommend trying it. I also recommend trying Genesis Typhoon (a little close to Alu Power Rough, IMO).

    Take care.

  28. David Henry says:

    Hey Aaron – Welcome to Inspired Tennis! Thanks for the kind words – much appreciated., and thanks for the offer to talk strings. You’re registered for a chance to win the set of SOLINCO Tour Bite. Take care.


  29. Aaron Jenkins says:

    Have you tried X-One Biphase?

  30. David Henry says:

    Yes – A couple of years ago, before switching to Alu Power Rough, I tried several of the higher-end multifilaments, including X-One BiPhase. I really like it, but Babolat Xcel Power was my favorite multi. I’ll do a video soon about my playtesting of the higher-end multis. If you haven’t done so yet, consider subscribing to my RSS feed, so you’ll get notified whenever I create a new post. Or… subscribe to my channel on YouTube.

    Take care.


  31. Aaron Jenkins says:

    Will do! I play with a blx tour with babolat revenge at 57 pounds, im about to order new strings, any suggestions?

  32. David Henry says:

    Aaron – You obviously play with a poly, so are you looking to stay with a poly? I know you were asking about BiPhase the other day, and that is definitely not a poly. Before I can recommend a string, I need to know your style of play, if you have any arm problems or not, and how much you’d prefer to spend per set. Let me know, and I’ll throw out a couple of suggestions. Take care.


  33. Aaron Jenkins says:

    Well i am definitely a baseline player, usually hit forehands with a bit of power (needed due to smaller headsize and tight strings) on the backhands i almost always hit a medium paced ball with a one handed slice. i do not have any arm problems even though i play with full poly at a tight tension. the price really doesen’t matter to me. nor does the construction of the string. i am mainly looking for a string with good feel that still has power. i was asking about the multifilament BiPhase because i read that it plays like natural gut and lasts a while. im interested in many many strings but this one cathces my eye due to its high ratings from the tennis warehouse staff. i would like to know what you think about this string and any others you may recommend, also whether it would be good to go 16 or 17 gauge?

  34. David Henry says:

    Aaron – I think you should definitely give X-One BiPhase a try. It is an outstanding string and will give you both the things you mentioned – power and feel. It is a fairly powerful string, so you may have to experiment with the tension on a few string jobs before you get it dialed in perfectly. Like I said previously, while X-One BiPhase is a great string, my favorite multifilament string is Babolat Xcel Power. You may want to consider it too.

    As far as gauge goes, this is just kind of personal preference. A thicker string will, obviously, give you a little more durability, and a thinner string will give you a little more playability. Personally, I have never been a fan of thin strings and tend to prefer 16 gauge or in the case of my string of choice, Luxilon Alu Power Rough, 16L gauge. If it were me, I would use BiPhase in 16.

    If you want to stick with a poly… Have you ever tried Luxilon Alu Power Rough. I have tried several different polys, and I have never found one better suited for my game. I love the amazing spin/action I get on the ball with Alu Power Rough. The only downside is that it loses playability quickly. I usually only get about 8 to 10 hours of singles out of a set before I cut it out. While it is fresh though, it is magical.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have other questions.

    Take care.
