Comments: I was a Luxilon Alu Power (16L) user and I play 4.5 level. If you liked Luxilon ALU Power, you will
definitely love this one. I got them on sale for $6.50 per set, and it's softer then Luxilion, since it's 17 -- it seems, but more spin.
Just as durable as Luxilion. If you string yourself, it's as same as stringing with Luxilion -- meaning it's tough and doesn't bend
well and stuff. I'll move to this for the price as well as for performance.
From: Changsu, 4/15 Comments: Great string! I strung the GS 17 at mid range since I read that this string has good power. It was easy to string and this was the right tension for me. I typically use Cyclone, Tour Bite Soft and Poly Tour Spin in my various set ups. GS 17 will be a new addition to my arsenal. Control, spin and the soft feel sold me. A little pricier than some of the other soft polys but well worth a try.

Comments: I strung my Head Graphene Speed Pro at 53 lbs and it felt perfect. Good power, very comfortable
good top spin. It's a must try if you are looking for these characteristics.

Comments: Exellent control and spin with enough power to dictate play at the baseline and net. It can
From: Anthony, 12/12
Comments: This is the best kept secret in tennis. It's the best string I have ever used. Spin, power, control,
the arm. Hard serves, serve placement, kick serves, touch shots, etc. There's no need to hybrid, as it plays best strung
the racquet. The only problem is that it isn't sold in a 660' reel!
From: Anon, 12/12
Comments: By far my favorite poly. Usually, with a full poly bed I can have arm problems and don't feel volleys off
the strings but this soft poly it is softert and different. You might want to string this poly a little tighter and prestretch before
hand. I have tried many polys (Babolat, Luxilon, Kirschbaum, Signum, Dunlop, Technifibre) but this is clearly my favorite.
From: David, 12/14
Comments: For years I was looking for a string like this one. After trying Prince, Babolat, Head and Wilson I
new one and I'm very happy. I got tons of power, control and spin -- it changed my game for the better. I strung it at 54 lbs and I
play 3 times a week and in a month I can't see any difference in the tension.
From: Rafael, 12/13
Comments: This string is the softest poly I've ever hit! Tons of power and spin, but loses tension pretty quick,
hence the power increase. I would pre-stretch the strings a good three times and don't be afraid to lay back into the pulling of the
string; you will be amazed how far they stretch! I strung it at 56 lbs and in one game the tension dropped to about 50 lbs. Next
time, I'm going to try 60 lbs and I would bet it will be good after they settle down. I just re-ordered this string because they didn't
aggravate my elbow tendonitis and nothing beats the spin of a poly string. The only other poly I'd reccomed is Volkl Cyclone 18g;
they are a little stiffer but they rip the felt off the ball. I almost feel like Nadal with that killer top spin!
From: Tony, 7/13
Comments: This is by far the softest twisted co-poly I have tried among Tourna Big Hitter, MSV Hepta Twist
Genesis Typhoon. The first two offer 17g and Genesis only comes in 16L. All of them hold tension exceptionally well and they all
provide great access to spin and control. But Gosen Sidewinder is truly the softest according to my ultra sensitive elbow.
From: Brian, 2/13
Comments: Firstly I want to say I hate polys as I find them lifeless and too stiff. I got this Sidewinder 17g
felt that I have to have a little more durability as I no longer string my own racquets. I blended it with my (ideal) string, Isospeed
Energetic! I am loving it! It's lasted long enough to keep me happy and its so much softer than I was expecting! I am not saying
Sidewinder is the perfect poly but with this special offer of 2 for 1 it's certainly worth a shot!
From: Paul, 2/13
Comments: One of the softest polyester strings on the market. Very nice to hit, with lots of spin and control.
softer string means more power, so you need to string it a few pound higher if you are considering it. Tension maintenance is
From: Derrick, 2/13
Comments: Let me compare it to orange 16g; this one offers a crisper feel and more liveliness, wow, this one
play faster at same level of predictability. After an hour of break-in time this one offers lots of ball pocketing for improved
directional control and spin. Be aware, this string is light, hence it may decrease the overall swing weight of your racquet. I will
reel of this black edition once available as it is a great string for me!
