I was restringing a head that was badly in need of a new string-job this morning and I strung it with NCAA legal stringing. I've been doing this with all my heads and a lot of my customers for that last year after the new rules were enacted and I really haven't noticed a disadvantage whatsoever. Yeah I had to adjust how I strung the pocket itself for customers who preferred more whip than I (I use very little, I like being able to snap my wrists completely). But it wasn't a difficult change.
What do you think about younger players going by the NCAA rules? I do use HS legal heads and I don't think thats something younger players need to worry about as much. I do use a Super Power occasionally but I still love the Clutch. I think for players like myself who want to play at the collegiate level one day its not a bad idea. I don't think that that high schools should impose the rules mostly because not everyone strings for themselves.
