    Armortec 700, BG66, tension 27 - 29. In singles, I play it patient, set up and control, I smash when given the opportunity to give the full kill. Doubles, set up for my partner, and kill everything when given chances.

    Game : MS and MD.
    Style : Offensive - attacking clears, drives, smashing(jump), Backhand crosscourt smash ( this helps me alot ), tighter netplay, lots of crosscourt netdrops, and I'm focussing on my footwork now.
    Racket : AT700 (new) 3UG4 JP
    String : 26x28.6lbs, Prototype strings
    Grip : Prince Microtac Overgrip ( Directly over the wooden handle )
    Shoes : Mizuno Sala Libre ( need to change, because this shoe has lost its traction and its got no cushioning. Gets irritating. ) Now looking towards buying the SHB100LTD 08'.

    Game: singles/doubles, I prefer singles but don't get to play that often.
    Style: Defensive, I'm working on my attacking game at the moment and have began winning using it. Tiring my opponent out in singles!
    Rackets:Carlton airblade superlite (main racket)
    Carlton powerblade iso (for when I'm feeling strong and in need of more slightly more power, less control)
    Yonex isometric 65lt My first racket, I liked the colour so purchased it Still an ok racket although all my shots lack power with it.
    String:All strung with yonex nanogy 95 @24lbs (supposedly, seems higher than this on the airblade, too high in fact... I hope they slacken a bit, only been string a few weeks) I haven't played long enough (or have enough money) to have played around with string tension that much. I do like the nanogy strings, I can hit really crisp shots with them that go where I want.

    Game : MS and MD. I prefer MS more than MD.
    Style : Offensive - Offensive/punch clears, drives, alot of smashing, focussing on tighter netplay, precision and footwork. Adding some deception to my netplay too.
    Racket : AT700 (new) 3UG4 JP
    String : 26x28.6lbs, Prototype strings
    Grip : Karakal PU supergrip ( stretched it to make it thin, as I prefer using thin grips )
    Shoes : Mizuno Sala Libre; need to change, because this shoe has lost its traction and its got no cushioning. Not enough padding either, I get blisters on my toes. Now looking towards buying the SHB100LTD '08.

    The cross tension is more than the main tension is that it helps keep the frame in its original shape.
