Comments: The string broke after less than 4 hours of play. I had it strung relatively low at 53 lbs. In fairness to
Kirschbaum, I framed the shot when the string broke and there's a possibility it was strung improperly. However, after reading an
earlier post in which the string quickly broke, I thought I should make this post.
Comments: This string is a great combination of my MSV focus Hex 17 as my main at 50 lbs and cross at 52 lbs.
They give balance to my poly in terms of feel, comfort and power. I love the result compared to what I was using before with
Gosen synthetic and polylon. I'm using a Wilson six.one Pro Staff 95.
Comments: I broke my playing arm at the elbow and once I started playing again had to change to a flexible frame
and soft string. I playtested a load of multifillaments claiming to have "gut like" feel. Most don't. But this one does. It is very soft.
Even Babolat Xcel jars the arm and feels tinny compared to this. I use the 1.25 gauge and can't recommend it enough. It's a real
surprise and has good pop and keeps tension well. I use Prince Exo3 Rebel Team 98 and string at 55 lbs.
Comments: I put this string in a Head Youtek IG Speed Lite (102") strung at 60 lbs. The
combo of pop and control is very very good. I have to take some issue with the comfort
comments however. I am removing this string from this frame and lowering the tension to 58 lbs to see if it feels
better.. At 60 lbs my arm felt it. Keep in mind however, that this frame is in the mid 60's RA
test, so it isn't a soft frame. This is a multifilament. It makes me wonder how people play with polyester. I have had bad
tennis elbow and I will rip out any string the makes my elbow even slightly sore. Would love
to hear of another multi that has this pop and control but is a bit softer.
Comments: I have a Babolat Pure Drive Roddick GT Plus that was strung with Kirschbaum 17 Touch Multifibre 1.25
at a pure 50 lbs. At first the control and pop was real nice even though the strings move around a lot, but turn the racket over, hit,
and they go back. However, after two weeks the strings have lost tension and feel dead. I serve fairly hard and with spin. The feel
is just not the same as when it was first strung and the pop is harder to come by.
Comments: Great strings, holds tension well, easy to string, has decent power, and soft on the arm. I would rate
this as one of the top 3 multifilament strings out on the market. The only downside is it is not as crisp as Tecnifibre X-one
Biphase or Babolat Xcel Power.
Comments: For 12 years I have been a Laserfibre fan (Supreme, Phenom, etc.)and then Head FXP Power, Tecnifibre
X-One BiPhase, Klip Excellerator and others. Now really like this KB Touch MF. Truly amazing tension hold, quite soft feel, quite
good control. Wish it came in a 17L or 18. Going to try co-poly Kirschbaum Competition and Pro Line 2 next. Kirschbaum seems
like a high quality line.
Comments:Strung this string in my Bab Aeropro at 64lbs. The string was easy on the arm and soft... no pop on
serve but ok on the groundies. The problem was the string moved from day one and I was constantly telling my opponent not to
serve while I had to straighten my strings after every point. Then finally after 3 sets and 1 hour of training they popped right in
the middle. I don't know if it was a bad string job or it was the strings but I won't be using them again.
Comments: Great string to go along with Kirschbaum's Spiky 17G. I string anywhere from 61-63lb. and play with a
Dunlop Aerogel 200G. I both teach with this string setup as well as play, and the string holds its tension very well and the
playability of the 17 is great. If you have not tried Spiky, you should try a pack of it as well as the Touch Multifiber and you ought
to have some fun with your kick serve and superb control on your stringbed.
Comments: Great string. It's soft and has plenty of control. After trying so many strings, I think I'll stick with this
one. It's in a Yonex RDS 002 Tour at 57 lb. Compared to Wilson NXT Tour 17, this string feels softer. The feel is similar to Klip
Venom, but slightly crisper and more powerful. I've only played for 4 hours with it, so I can't comment on durability, but I very
rarely break strings anyways. Hopefully it holds tension as well as NXT Tour.
