Comments: Strung a racquet each in black 17g and original natural 17g -- the black lasted about 5 hours total playing time. It is stiffer and the sheath material flakes rather than frays. No difference in feel but durability is worse than regular NXT.
From: Alec, 6/13

Comments: I tried these and found them to be quite good and responsive. I am a big hitter using the Wilson BLX Blade Team with the strings at 51 pounds. I had no trouble keeping the ball in the court while blasting monster forehand shots. There is no sign of wear after 2 hours of play.

Comments: I got these for my 12 year old son, and they broke in under a half hour.

Comments: I play 4-5 times a week, and I hit with a lot of topspin. I had always used the Wilson NXT 17 Natural - which is a fantastic string, but I pop them in about a month (I have it on two racquets and strung at different tensions - both pop fast). I thought the coating on the black strings would last longer - Not the case! I put it on strung at 59, and I popped a string after about 10 hours of play. Very unhappy with the black version of this string, you lose some of the feel - and they pop faster.

Comments: Looks great when strung - it was purchased for my 11 year old son for his BLX Team. Feedback from him was that it played really well but it frayed in less than 2 weeks of regular play. Factory strings with Sensation lasted at least twice as long. It was particularly disappointing as the initial playability was fantastic and given that it is a closed string pattern racket I would have expected them to last much longer. Have now replaced with NRG and will be interesting to see how they perform by comparison at the same tension (54 Lbs).
