    Style: Doubles, mens and mixed. Fast, attacking play (at least that's what I am for).

    Racquet: Prefer mid to light weight, even balanced rackets. Alternate between a SOTX woven-8 and Benton Utmost 580.

    String: BG-80 and BG-85

    Tension: Still tweaking, currently 24 lbs electronic constant pull with 10% prestretch. Could comfortably go a few extra pounds higher I think.
