Comments: Love this string. A multi-feel and control w/poly spin. If that sounds
good, give it a try.
Comments: This string is great! The only aspect that is lacking is spin production, however, that could
be solved by going to the 17g or 18g. The good aspects of this string is the perfect mix of power and control. It has
amazing feel (even better at thinner gauge), and durability. Tension maintenance is outstanding. volleys are also a
dream. serving, the string has ample pop and spin for second serves. Overall, I give it 9.5/10 but the thinner gauge will
make it a perfect 10. Also, I usually break strings every week but with this I've had 3 long sets and they still are great.
Strung @ 58lbs on a [K] six.one. 95 16x18
Comments: Wow! This is the best string I've played with yet, previously I had been using kirschbaum
competition at 52 pounds in my head extreme pro, and this string is much more durable, gives you great spin potential
and is very soft. I find that this string is also much more forgiving when you don't hit the ball out of the centre. Great
string all in all.
Comments: Nice String. Arm friendly, good pop and feel. Strung a full set @ 54lbs on a MG Extreme Pro
2009 and the mains moved a bit too much. Durability wasn't that great, they lasted 3 weeks playing 2-4X a week. If
you're looking for a soft copoly I highly recommend MSV Focus Hex, the strings are the business and they come in red.
Comments: Richard, string it lower, I had the same issues but then I restrung it lower at 55 and it helped
signifcantly in every aspect of the game. If you string at 60 make sure to drop it at least 4-6 pounds, and it will make a
difference in you game. Also if you're playing on clay red clay in particular string it slightly lower like 53, but if you're
playing on harder string it at 54 for added control.
Comments: Richard you strung it too high. Try 51-54 and then make a comment.
Comments: I have recently bought six Dunlop Roland Garros Racing frames and had them strung with
Wilson, Tecnifibre, Gamma, Luxilon, Babolat and Kirschbaum ... all strung at 60#. After few hours of play with each
racquet, when strings have settled, I can safely say that Kirschbaum Pro Line II 16 was by far the worse string of that
lot, in every aspect that I could think of. Eventually I have settled on Tecnifibre X-One Biphase 16 [white], which I now
use at slightly different tensions in four of my Dunlop frames. Two frames I strung with Gamma Pro Live Wire 16, which
came out close second to Tecnifibre. To sum up, I wouldn't recommend the Kirschbaum Pro Line II 16 to anyone. There
are far better alternatives on the market, including the Dunlop Tour Performance 16, that Dunlop racquets are generally
sold strung with.
Comments:After many years, I had pretty much given up on finding a polyester string that offered both
feel and kindness to my longtime, tender playing arm. This string has successfully addressed all of these issues, along
with offering some extra pop and spin. I read some reviews that suggested that it doesn't even need to be used in a
hybrid setup, so I tried both ways. It does play great when put in both mains and crosses, though I have gone to the
17L for maximum feel. Durability is good, too. Thanks, Kirschbaum!!
Comments: I have tried dozens of strings over the past 20 years from Natural gut to Tecnifibre NRG to
most of the Gamma strings before finally settling on TNT2 16 gauge. I play with a Pro Kennex Pro7G racket, which
really helps my tennis elbow issues. Decided to try this string based on the reviews. The first 3 times playing with it I
experienced fantastic feel and spin, but then all of a sudden the string went dead and had almost no feel or pop to it. I
strung it 4 lbs lower than I usually string my TNT2 (58 lbs instead of 62 lbs). These strings definitely do not move and
the red color is pretty cool looking, but given the high cost and very short "feel" life span I do not recommend them.
After that 3rd session I grabbed my back up frame strung with TNT2 and was amazed at how much more feel these
strings had than the KB after a short period of time.
Comments: Excellent string. I use a K-factor Tour 90 and string it about 57lbs., and the spin you get is
amazing. Definitely a good buy!!
Comments: This string is made for players who need a softer stringbed. It takes a couple weeks to get
used to. It is THE GREATEST STRING I HAVE USED. IT TOOK ME TO A NATIONAL FINAL. It is definitely the way to go.
Comments: This is the best string I have ever played with. It has the nicest feel and control of the all the
Comments: I tried this on a couple of my racquets at 55 lbs tension even though I prefer 65+. This
string is stiffer than most and doesn't lose tension easily. It's definitely an upgrade to the Luxilon Big Banger if that
gives you tennis elbow. The Big Banger is very forgiving, and this one is less forgiving. I would say less bite too. The
Luxilon ALU Power is rougher and can eat into ball, and this string doesn't do that for me. I am an extreme topspin
player and like the bite. After 10 hours of play, there's no significant string movement of the main/cross biting each
other. Not bad, but I prefer the ALU in a hybrid string pattern to eliminate tennis elbow issues. I also use 90 sq.in or
smaller racquets that are heavier than average.
Comments: This is by far the most complete performance string I have ever played with.
I have been playing tennis for 20 years and have only played with the best racquets and strings money can buy. I no
longer lose to inferior players due to the spin potential that allows me to play aggressive and win as efficiently as
possible. There is no need for a hybrid my MicroGEL Prestige Pro is a perfect combination the Kirschbaum Pro Line 2
Comments: Awesome feeling!!! After playing all my life with ALU Power y thought that I would never find
something better. But I did.... It outturned in all: Very sensible, more power but spite comfortable. The best came after
8 hours of hard playing, amazingly I noticed less movement and no drop of tension at all. I'll switch and recommend it
to my fellows.
For the record I'm an 18 junior and playing futures. I tried it on my K factor Tour 95 with 56 Lbs.
