    It has more to do with me assuming that someone with your reputation would only use what's considered to be the best.

    then i took a really soft Carlton AG66 string and strung it at 20lbs (lowest that my WISE would go)

    the result is the above. slightly on the heavy side but definitely better than a steel one.
    A lad at my club had to do this "handle transplant" once. We called the resulting racket "the Victex".

    Victex, that's like the little twin of 'Yontor', right?
