Comments: I'm a 3.0 women's player with an old Overdrive 105. Love the power and control these strings give me! I've been experimenting with other options, but keep coming back to these. Love them! Just that little extra bit of spin and touch keep my groundies in, and I find I have great control at the net.

Comments: Have been using this string for the last 2 years. Usually, it lasts a month. It used to fray first (like natural gut) before it breaks. But the last two, they just broke without signs of fraying.

Comments: Incredible bite and power. I could not successfully bridle the incredible power before the strings broke. After couple of weeks of occasional play the strings were already showing deformation discoloration after a couple of days. Conclusion -- great spin with power.

Comments: Great string, with lots of power, great comfort, and arm friendly. My second favorite string next to Tecnifibre X-One Bi-phase 17g.

Comments: I use this on my Babolat Aero Pro Drive Cortex and let me tell you, it is the best string I've ever used. It has a lot of power and lots of spin. The comfort is amazing, you don't even feel the ball hit your racquet.

Comments: I ordered this string and I loved it. The only problem was that the string broke after three days of playing. So if you want a string that isnít going to last long this isnít for you.

Comments: Great strings, soft, decent control, and good pop. For me it is the second best multifilament to Biphase.

Comments: Used it in my crosses with Luxilon bb alu power rough. I use a head prestige mid microgel. Strung it high, really high actually. 65. I love it to death. Takes the combo a bit to break in especially with the tension. Tones of pop, control, feel, even at 65, Power is phenomenal. Seems to read my mind in how I want to place the ball. Would recommend this combo.

Comments:Awesome string for hybrid stringing and big hitters. I use a Babolat Pure Storm Limited. With its tight string pattern and lots of control, the power string added a nice pop to the racquet. I usually string at 60 pounds to add more control, but overall it's an awesome hybrid string for the crosses.

Comments: I like the feel with this string, good power and control. But the problem is it won't last too long, I strung with 60lbs with X-Cel Power and Pacific x-force. Only last for 3 hours and it broke. I use Head Microgel Radical Pro.

Comments: I just strung my K90 Tour with the Babolat Xcel Power 17 and I can tell you it's soft but solid, very comfortable and has very good pop. I'd rate it alongside Gamma Pro and Tecnifibre X1 for comfort.
From: John, Santa Clarita, CA, USA, 03/08

Comments: Well I really just bought this because I figured someone had to go out on a limb and get it. I crossed this with Pro Hurricane Tours and like it more than the XCel Premium/Pro Hurricane combo. It's definitely worth trying. Only complaint is I broke them in 12 days so it could get expensive.
