Comments: I switched to this string after Gamma discontinued their fantastic Zo Tour string (for reasons I can't
fathom, as everyone I know who used Zo Tour loved that string) and my Gamma rep recommended I use Moto instead. After about
4 months of playing on it to give it a fair shake, I have to say that it's not the glorious Zo Tour replacement I was hoping for. This
is not to say it's bad string, however. It's definitely successful at doing what it advertises: generating spin. This stuff bites into the
ball like Tyson into Holyfield's ear, to the point where loopy swingers may have trouble finding depth on topspin shots. If you
struggle for depth, this may not be a good thing, but for those of us who tend to hit long this stuff tames shots back into the
court very well. Other positives -- it holds tension well; the black looks good in most frames; it is very responsive; and is relatively
inexpensive. Former Zo Tour fans (like myself) will have to look elsewhere for our fix, though. The main problem here is stiffness.
This string lacks the softness of the Zo Tour, leading to jarring uncomfortable feel, less forgiveness on off-center shots, and in my
case some pretty severe arm pain that sidelined me for two weeks after a few days of particularly hard hitting. It also doesn't feel
like it pockets the ball well at all...it's more of a "clicky" strike than a "boomy" strike (subjective, I know). Other cons -- pain to
string with; durability is below average for a co-poly; and it isn't Zo Tour. I'd recommend this for: Juniors, those struggling with
hitting long, people using VERY flexible frames or low tensions, people wanting co-poly on a budget. And I would avoid it if you're
someone with arm problems; a senior; playing against big hitters/servers a lot (or if you are one yourself); or someone with a very
Comments: Very good string, good spin, ball pocketing, and good tension maintenance. Not too soft or too hard,
in the middle. I use it at 61 lbs in my Prince Diablo Midplus.
