Comments: I really like this string. I string it at 59 lbs in my Aerogel 800. It really grabs the ball and increases the
spin. Even mishits are dropping in where they might have gone long. Volleys are crisp. I get more pop on my serve than with
other 18g poly strings I've tried. I may try lowering tension another 3-4 pounds, but I have no complaints at 59. I play four
days/week and have not had a string break. Beware that some of the sets don't quite have 40ft. More like 38 1/2 feet. Measure
off what you need for the mains.
Comments: Previous comments claim that this string stretches. Not True! Any drop in tension is the result of a bad
string job. Three weeks and 18 hours of tennis after I strung two racquets with the Black Widow and the tension has not changed.
really like the feel and 'grab' of this string. Unfortunately, I believed the 'stretch' feedback and it is tighter than I would like. I will
restring three pounds lower from my first trial and post additional feedback.
Comments: I'm a lefty with a full western grip and a weak 4.5 player.
I use a Wilson hammer 2.3 16x19, an ultra light stiff frame that I used
to string with 16g Babolat RPM at 54lbs. I just had it strung at 53
lbs with this Black Widow and liked it from the very first stroke.
I could actually felt the bite on the ball giving me even more spin and
control. It felt like the ball stayed on the strings significantly
longer, more than I ever experienced with any other strings. Next time I
get it strung, I may go down to 51 lbs to see if I get a bit more power.
