Comments: I have used probably 6-7 different multi-filaments over the last 10 years. I have never had a string
(until this one) with virtually no break-in period. It's amazing, AG2000 is good from the very first hit which is really desirable.
This has been the same every time in over 10 sets used over the last 2-3 years. In agreement with the other Paul listed below on
the other attributes of this string.
Comments: If you are a big hitter this string won't be very good for you. It plays very soft and is therefore erratic
on big swings.
Comments: I have played 2 sets with this string so far. I use it in the mains with Gosen Syn Gut in the crosses. It
plays surprisingly soft, with good control and moderate power. Durability is just average, but for cost and comfort, it's a great
value compared to Tecnifibre Multi-feel, which is only slightly better in all areas but for about $3 more a set.
Comments: I have used it on several racquetball racquets in 17 ga and have found that it performs very well. Plan
to try the lighter 18 ga. soon. For the price, I thinks its a great product.
Comments: I have been trying out different multifilaments in a hybrid setup with a polyester as the mains and the
multifilaments as the crosses. This string kind of surprised me because I was expecting it to be softer, like most of the other
multifilaments, but it was a little stiff more like synthetic gut. I didn't mind. I actually enjoyed playing with this string because it
had a nice crisp feel to it, and it offered plenty of power, good control and decent spin. My only complaint was that it lasted me
about 5-6 hours of hitting before breaking. Compared to the other multifilaments I've tried, this is below average in durability.
Comments: Ok, three words: piece...of....garbage, really the most terrible strings I have ever used, I had them
strung at 65 pounds and it totally destroyed my elbow and now Iím mad pissed, apart from that they felt awful and are not soft at
all, they are also very slippery and gave the ball no spin at all, the ball just slides right off of them and flies into the net or goes
everywhere that you're not aiming, seriously do not buy this string they are total crap and I will not buy them again, Iím still stuck
with the freaking 17 gauge now, Iíll probably give it to my friend for his birthday
Comments: I've switched to a full Alpha Gut 2000 string bed from the stiff hybrid polyesters/ multifilaments. I
found the string to be durable with great feel and most of all, it's much easier on the arm. All court 4.5 player, Wilson N-Code 6.1
95 strung at 63lbs.
Comments: Great string for a stiff racquet. Works well in my nCode six-one tour 90. However, they like to cut in on
themselves and don't last long in 95-degree + conditions. Don't use these strings on an oversized racquet that vibrates a lot; the
strings will only last a week.
Comments: I have tried a few multifilament strings lately, and I can conclude that this string has to
be one the best bang for the buck that you can buy - high quality multifilament string for an unbeatable price!
4.5 player, Wilson Ncode Six-One Tour 90, 57 lbs.
Comments: Great great string. I started trying multi's after switching to a Volkl Tour10 mid last year,
and the racket feels great with a hybrid between a multi in the main and a mono nylon (Liberty 16 Ashaway) in
the crosses. Comparing to Wilson Sensation, the Alpha Gut2000 holds tension better and provides better
control. It is very slippery and easy to string with. The slippery feel also sacrifice the spin potential slightly, but I
am a flat ball hitter so no big issue for me. Very comfortable string, plays softer than natural gut, the hybrid with
a mono nylon provides great feel, control and comfort. Durability is decent also.
Comments:For the money, this is probably the best string out there even
comparing with some of the more expensive strings. I've used this string for the last 3 years
and really enjoyed its durability and comfort. (I am a 4.5/5.0; all-court player; Prince CTS
DB26 @ 62 lbs.)
Comments: I really like the feel and durability of this string. Prior to this string I
tried the Gamma LiveWire XP and the Wilson NXT to test the new multifilaments. I strung
those with Prince Synthetic Gut in the crosses since I have a stringing machine and for the
money Alpha gut is lasting longer and the playability is good. Gamma loses tension faster
than the Wilson, but is softer for the first 4 hrs. The Alpha starts soft but not as soft as the
other two, but it seems to hold the tension better. I strung the whole racquet with the Alpha
since the price is low which is another benefit. I got better power with the Alpha than the
other two, but it might be due to not hybridizing the string job. If the Wilson cost the same as
the Alpha I would buy the Wilson since it looks like gut and the feel is slightly better. The
Gamma is harder to string so I wouldn't recommend it (It stretches too much). For the
money I like the Alpha. It plays like a better version of Prince Synthetic Gut Original.
Comments: I have used this string ever since I started playing tennis (4 or 5
years ago) and I love it for my Babolat Pure Control Plus.
Comments: The best economical synthetic string out there. If you want the best
synthetic string, use Babolat VS Fibrefeel or Powergy.
Comments: After stringing racquets for some 30 years (and playing even longer)
I would say this is currently the best string for the money. It holds up nicely on the red clay,
and it's elasticity provides excellent feel and control. I string it at 56lbs in my Midplus Prince
Comments: I don't like this string at all. This string is not soft compared to other
strings, so it is not that easy on the arm. I think regular synthetic gut it's better.
Comments: I use a Dunlop 300G strung at 62 lbs. Alpha Gut 2000 16 is a fairly
good string that gives you good bite for a 16 gauge. I am a fairly hard hitter that uses quite a
lot of topspin, so the durability isn't too great for me. I broke it in 5 hours of play. Not a bad
Comments: Alpha Gut 2000 is a great buy. It gets good bite on the ball and gives
the usual control associated with a multifilament. It is not as soft as NXT or any other
expensive strings, but for half the price that's not very significant. I was pleased with the
power as well. Surprisingly, the string lasts as long on my racquets as regular synthetic gut.
The Alpha Gut is one of the best deals out there.
Comments: Alpha Gut 2000 16 (White) is the best string for the money. It feels
great in my Pure Drive. It has a little above average durability, but for the price this is the best
Comments: After trying a few of the higher priced multifilaments, including
Tecnifiber NRG, Wilson NXT, and Gamma Live Wire, the Alpha Gut 2000 has proved to be a
alternative. It has just as much feel as the NRG and NXT, but has much better durability. All
around, it comes closest to Live Wire in playability, with a little more feel. An excellent string
at a very reasonable price.
Comments: I use Alpha Gut 2000 as my crosses with Gosen polylon as my
mains. This is one of the softest strings available which is why I deceided combining it with
a fairly stiff string like Polylon. It is a great string even when it is used alone. I ordered two
reels from for use on my hybrid and I suggest that you try it too.
