ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Which tension is best?
Moderate tension (18 kg to 23 kg) offers more comfort, spin and power. The flip side is that you'll have less control and accuracy. High tension (>23 kg) provides greater control and accuracy. It can, however, lead to tendinitis. You will also have less spin and power.
About monofilaments
For monofilament strings, Decathlon suggests a tension between 19 kg and 22 kg. We strongly recommend against using monofilament strings for children under 15 to avoid injury. These strings are best for players who break strings in under 10 hours of play because they quickly lose their tension.
About multifilaments
For multifilament strings, Decathlon recommends a maximum tension of 25 kg. These strings are recommended for people who are prone to tendinitis, youngsters, and people who don't break their strings often. Multifilament strings keep their tension very well. For natural gut strings, Decathlon recommends a maximum tension of 23 kg. These strings offer superior comfort, feel and power. They also retain their tension extremely well.
When to change your strings
How your racket performs depends equally on your frame and strings. Be sure to take the time to choose the right strings. For players who break their strings a lot: change them when you break them. For people who rarely or never break strings, Decathlon recommends changing them as many times per year as you play per week. Eg, if you play once per week, change your strings once per year. If you play three times per week, change your strings three times per year.
Tips from Decathlon
You should not tighten a loosely strung racket as its performance will be affected. Looser strings will make your game more relaxed; if you aren't forcing things, you will have more power. Over time strings can become worn without breaking. They lose elasticity and their initial properties. The gauge (or diameter) also affects play. The smaller the gauge, the more power and spin you'll get. A larger gauge will give you stiffer strings with a heavier impact on your body.

    Excellent et surprenant cordage très complet

    Le cordage TA 990 Spin est extrêmement surprenant. Alors qu'on pouvait s'attendre à un cordage rigide et sans prise d'effet en raison de sa constrction à jauge 1,27mm non-structuré, j'ai été étonné par sa souplesse, son confort et son aptitude à donner de l'effet à la balle.
    C'est bien simple : en passant à ce cordage, il m'a été plus facile de ne plus envoyer la balle derrière la ligne de fond de court, tant le lift peut être aisément donné. Il offre une précision intéressante, et sa tolérance permet de lâcher les coups sans problème. D'autant qu'il sait aussi très bien donner de la puissance aux frappes.
    Bref, le TA 990 Spin est un cordage très complet et polyvalent , qui peut convenir aux joueurs confirmés pour ses qualités et aux moins confirmés pour sa souplesse et sa tolérence.
    En revanche, les joueurs avancés pourront peut-être regretter sa durée de vie, très largement suffisante, mais plus courte que d'autres co-polyester.

    gran resistencia

    Mejor que otros monofilamentos que suelen ser más caros y no mejoran en prestaciones. Aguanta bastante bien para los jugadores que acostumbran a liftar y cortar la bola

    Réactif et assez souple

    Bon rendement du cordage, prise d'effets je préconise de tendre 1kg de plus que d'habitude car le cordage est assez souple au final. Bonne résistance (10-12h intensif). Confort à améliorer au niveau des vibrations.
