Comments: I like the textured poly strings. However, I'm "middle" aged and have now shifted to the softer poly
strings. This string offers great control, spin and is easier on the body. I have strung STBS mid-range on several racquets and the
power level is good. STBS and Volkl Cyclone are both comfortable polys and are my go to strings. If you like polys, this one is
definitely worth a try.
Comments: Definitely soft. Too soft for my setup, unfortunately, since I use a Volkl PB 10 mid, due to the flex and
softness of the string, I felt like I was swinging a pillow. If you have a stiffer racquet, or if you have tennis elbow issues, this may
be the string for you though. Keeps tension fairly well. Spin was about on par with RPM and Pro Hurricane Tour. Lots of access to
power. while not for me, absolutely recommend.
Comments: This string still gives the same amazing pop and spin as the original Tour Bite. But the feel is different.
It is softer and less crisp. It took me 2-3 sessions to get used to it. Great alternative, as I have elbow problems with polys. Great
string. Give it some time and you will love it. You will need to string this higher as it is soft. I string mine 4 pounds higher than
my old original Tour Bite at 55 lbs in my Prince EXO3.
Comments: So far, it really is the best string I've used in my life. I strung it in my Babolat Pure Drive and Head
Speed MP at 55 lbs. It can create more spin than Babolat RPM Blast. It can create a lot of spin with great feel, I feel more control on
my Head Speed MP with this string. And I am very surprised that it is also really comfortable for a poly string. I play 3 times a week
(for 6 hours) and it can last for 1.5 months.
Comments: I tried the original Solinco Tour Bite and thought it played quite well in my Head IG Speed racquet.
Unfortunately, after a few days my wrist and shoulder both started to hurt. When the Tour Bite Soft came out I decided to give it a
It is now my favorite string. I use a hybrid set up: Tour Bite Soft in the mains and Wilson Sensation in the crosses. I get a very nice
combination of spin generation, control and comfort. Wilson Sensation is a nice string to use in hybrid combinations with
polys because it does nick or fray -- it just plays well then finally breaks.
Comments:Like the advertisement says, it's softer than the original Solinco Tour Bite 17 gauge. I use it in a hybrid
with Gosen Micro Sheep synthetic gut in the crosses and it hits great. Lots of spin, controllable power and excellent tension
maintenance. A very good improvement on a string that was already impressive.
