|Pacific's XCite offers maximum control and impressive durability to advanced big hitters. This string will have more of a muted feel for excellent control off the string bed. When tested, it also showed to have superb durability. According to Pacific, their new PolyCite technology offers greater energy return to the ball and improved tension maintenance, among other things. This string is ideal for players with long, fast strokes looking to harness their power with a control-oriented string. This thinner 16L gague will have greater playability and comfort, while being slightly less durable than the 16g version.
