Comments: Definitely designed for advanced players who have control of their shots (4.5+). Not only does the string offer tremendous power, but it also affords great spin potential. Like most co-polys, you aren't offered much feel, but that's why it works best for advanced players who already swing free with relative precision. This string is also budget friendly since you will likely have to cut it out before it breaks. As a 5.0 college coach, it's my string of choice and the string of choice for all of my top athletes (4.5-6.0). After trying just 1 racquet of this string, I have never had an athlete who has switched back to Big Banger or RPM.

Comments: As it goes, strings are personal to your style of play. I like Vokle Cyclone, but I cannot serve with it. My serve goes into the net or long. It is awesome for the groundstrokes and volleys. I like these strings because they don't have that springy feel. They feel crisp. The power is good. I can hit spin and flat shots. Spin and slice serve are great. Having problems with serving flat -- it always goes long. Volleys and slice shots are great. The diamond has much more power. The directional control is awesome. Strung at 52 lbs on a Wilson Six-One 95 16x18 2012 model.

Comments: String has good spin but a lot more power than expected. Can't keep the ball in the court. Will cut these out and put in ALU soft or RPM in. Feels like a trampoline in my hand.

Comments: This is one of the best string out there. I have strung it in a poly poly hybrid (S.T.B.S with MSV Focus Hex 1.23) -- for the first few hours you could basically rip ball with heavy spin at total comfort. After a few days of hitting tension drop significantly and string is less lively. Spin potential also drop but thankfully my stiffer msv focus hex stabilise the total tension of the string and still making it enjoyable gameplay. Compared to ALU Power this string is much better and is at least 100x softer in feel, 10x the tension stability, 30x more spin capability. The string is still playable after a month compare to ALU Power which becomes a stiff trampoline after 2 weeks. Strung at 61/59 lbs with MSV Focus Hex mains and Solinco Tour Bite Soft in an RF97.

Comments: Excellent power, control and spin. This string is much better than Luxilon ALU Power strings.

Comments: If you have elbow issues with other spin strings, this is your fix. This string is very soft and still has the bite and pocketing you want. The only thing I noticed is that the edges do wear down faster than stiffer strings. Can't complain though as it is a softer string with good bite that lasts fairly long. This string will lose some tension unless you pre-stretch it. No more elbow issues for me. Pair it with the Technifibre synthetic gut 16 black, and you will be in paradise.

Comments: Awesome string, tons of spin!
From: Justin, 6/13

Comments: Wow! Very powerful string on the serve and in general. I had to string my racquet 4 lbs tighter than normal at 57 lbs. Very good spin as well and it is similar to Alu power but this one is cheaper and has more pop. Best string on the market so far! Get it!
