Comments: Very smooth with natural gut-like feel. String this in your mains and pair it with a poly (like Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour) for exceptional power, feel and spin.

Comments: This is a really great string. Loved the feel at about 57 pounds on an AeroPro Drive. Well worth the $18!

Comments: I picked up a set for laughs thinking a twenty dollar multi most be a joke. No joke at all. String it into a Prince Exo3 rebel at 55lbs and it felt like the tennis world is anew. I could hit insane angles, tight/heavy topspin drives and I could slam the ball cross court like no other. The coating though is a bit ridiculous as it starts to flake after 5 minutes of WARM UP. If you don't mind the color wear and tear, get these to try.

Comments: Great hitting string. I like the comfort, feel and control this string offers. I strung my racquet about 3 lbs tighter than usual (63 lbs) to compensate for any quick tension loss. This string plays equal to or better than other top multifilaments that I've played with to include the NXT's, X-ONE Biphase and Micronite. I did notice a little wear (roughness) on the coating after two hours of play. I highly recommend this string. However, the durability (as with most multifilaments) could be an issue for string breakers.

Comments: I played with this string for the first time at 65 lbs main and 63 lbs cross on my ProKennex Ionic 15 PSE. I became a "new" player. I hit heavier and with greater control. My coach just keep on praising my practice session with him. This string is very soft on my arm (of course, the racquet helps a lot too!). I really encourage anyone playing tennis to really give it a try.

Comments: This string has really played well for me. I have used it for the last month @ 42 in the mains with Prince syn gut in the crosses. It is quite soft.

Comments: Tried this string for the first time last night. I was tired of a polyester string that are too hard but this string is very soft with a great touch. It comes in black and after playing for a few hours I noticed part of the black coating is starting to come off in little places. Not sure what that means but I really like this string. It has a nice pop to it. Only time will tell how long it lasts though.
