Comments: This is the sleeper of all polys if you are looking for feel, spin potential, easy on the arm, and value.
Buy a set and try it even if you are reluctant to use "stiff" poly. A full set is fine. A hybrid with Gosen Micro Sheep 18 g is
scary good. I am rated a 4.5 and am a 68 year old male.

Comments: This string plays amazing if you string it between 45-55 lbs. I have it set in 3 Wilson Blade 98s at
53 lbs each (the 2013 model) and the spin potential is unreal. The durability is also great and considering I live on the island
of Molokai all the way in Hawaii, that's saying something. I switched over to this from RPM Blast, due to better comfort,
and just as much spin potential and durability while saving your wallet a whole extra 8 bucks per set. A definite win!

Comments: I've been using Volkl Cyclone 18 for 6 months and I really liked it. When I heard that Volkl Cyclone
Tour was softer and has more power, I wanted to give it a try. The Tour version is softer but it doesn't last as long as the
The original version lasts me about a month. The first time I used it, I strung this in the mains and used Gosen OG sheep
cross and it only lasted 2 weeks. So I tried using this string for mains and crosses, and it lasted me a match. It's a great
very comfortable, but if you are frequent string breaker, I would suggest going with a thicker string.

Comments: Excellent string! My previous favorite was Tecnifibre Black Code 18. I liked how Tecnifibre Razor
18 played a bit better, but it was also harsher on my arm. Volkl Cyclone Tour 18 has the crispness and power of Razor
the softness of Black Code with even better feel. I hybrid this with Forten Sweet 17.

Comments: Lots of spin and power, but quick tension drop.
From: Marty, 5/13
Comments: Using this on a 16x18 6.1 95 Amplifeel and Donnay Pro One 16x19. The string does give excellent
spin and power. The feel is a bit above average for co-poly. I string it @ 40-43 lbs in the mains and 36-40 lbs in the
works pretty well for an all court game like mine. I do have a bit of problem with drop and angled volleys but that's more
the tension than the string. The durability is excellent for 18g. I play about 6 hrs a week of doubles. My NTRP rating is 5.5
and this string survived for a month. Playability left after the 12th hour.

Comments: Great string, but 18 gauge on this string was way too thin for me. I felt like I was hitting with
From: Brendan, 1/13
Comments: I played with the original Cyclone for many months before Volkl came out with this new variation. I
call this string an improvement overall. It is softer with a lot more pop. I took the advice of the Tennis Warehouse testers
it a few pounds higher than my normal tension. If you play with a tight string bed, as I do (Head Microgel Radical MP 18
recommend the 18 gauge. The feel is amazing and I am not getting any negative vibration or arm pain. It simply does not
like a poly. The durability is excellent even when you hit a heavy ball. This string is now my string of choice.
