    alright time for an update on this

    Game Type: Singles
    Playing Style: offensive, defensive mix of both trying to play an agressive game
    Main Racket: Black Knight Vortex Radon (3)
    Strings: BG -65 (1), Ashway Power Gut 65 (1), Ashway Micro Power XL(1)
    Tension: all at 27lbs
    Grip: Black Knight overgrip

    reason i have 3 different string is cause i usually use BG65 but with my sponsorship i signed a contract saying i will only use ashway strings so i need to compare those 2 ashway strings (power gut 65 and micropower xl) to the bg 65 and see which i like im sure that there shouldnt be to much difference but hey you never know. i havnt gotten the ashway strings in yet should recieve those on tuesday.
