I think that setup you propose is going to be too powerful unless you have it at least 62 lbs Lux Ace or Timo 18 and 64+ lbs syn gut. The Aeropro is a very springy racquet and Ace has a lot of power. Combine Ace with syn gut adds even more power.

Using full Lux Ace at 61 is better than using synthetic gut, because the Ace will loosen and get even more power. Trust me. Ace is one of my favorite strings, but I know it's drawbacks.

Lux ace meaning big banger ace? There is much out there ..... too much power not necessary......full ace better you say........hmmmm

Yes, they are one and the same. Full Ace at 60 or 61 has a crisp but pleasant feel. There still is some give also. Another string that alot of customers like for a less crisp but smoother feel is Kirschbaum Pro Line 2. I would use the 16L gauge (1.25) version at 60 lbs.

i just got my racquet strung...lux ace on the mains and gamma tnt on the cross.....18 gauge...i am not a pro so dont break my strings easily....thought i would try this gauge and see how i like it.....cant wait!
Sounds like a very good combo, Arianne. You will love it. It's gonna play smooth and crisp at the same time.
cant wait to try it tim....tomorrow is the day...going to be playing in west hollywood.  :)
