Question String for Wilson Burn fst 99

Hi, Which string would you recommend for a Wilson Burn fst 99? (18x19)? I just bought this racket and used it a couple of time with Tecnifibre Overlast 57lbs and really didnīt like at all. I canīt feel the ball and without vibration dampener is impossible to play. Which setup would you recommend for this racket?

Thanks a lot!!

I played with this racquet, its a very specific racket, very string sensitive, you cant put just any string in it and play well.

The best option for you would be to use a spin friendly string (shaped co-poly) around 1,20mm gauge at 20-22 kg, maybe at even lower tension. If you dont use shaped string in this racquet, you will get almost zero spin out of it. And if you use a stiff string its going to feel like you are hitting with a shovel, so try to find a string that is also on the softer side. Dont worry about breaking strings in this racquet, because I couldnt break a string in it and I am a chronic string breaker with other racquets.

You should consider trying out Volkl Cyclone 18 or Volkl Cyclone Tour. Other candidates would be Solinco Hyper-G 18, Solinco Tour Bite Soft 18 and Signum Pro Tornado 18, but there are also other strings out there that would do the job.

Good luck
