Comments: Interesting string: Performance-wise it is similar to gut, in that, the string played nice and soft on drop/touch shots, but had plenty of extra pop on reserve when striking the ball hard and flat. However it isn't as plush as gut, and plays a bit firmer. I found very good control for a multi, even at mid tension (55 lbs), spin was also very good for multi, as this string plays with the crispness of a synthetic gut in my humble opinion, but doesn't transfer as much shock to the arm. It doesn't pocket the ball as well as other multis I like such as, Power Fiber 2, NXT, Hexy Fibre or Maxim Touch. The V-Feel does however have better spin potential and control than those I just just mentioned. As another reviewer mentioned below, the string does produce a much higher "ping" sound than other strings, which some may find annoying. Durability is a little better than Power Fiber 2, but not much. If this string was the same price as Power Fiber II, I would choose this for it's better pop and control, but at 18 bucks, I'd rather shell out the extra $8 for a set of Klip Legend Gut.

Comments: Very comfortable string. Great feel and ball pocketing. I have it strung in my Head Prestige MP. Even with the 18x20 string pattern, I'm able to get tons of spin. Good pop on the first flat serves as well. Lastly, durability is good for a multifiliment.

Comments: Very attractive string with the braided look in both colors. Strings up about average for a multi, with few kinks but still requires more caution than a syn gut. String has good resiliency and pop on flatter shots. Seems to ping louder than other multis, so a dampener might be preferred. No noticeable pros or cons with spin production. Feels a little stiff for a multi and lacks some of the softer dampening that I prefer in other multis. Seems to hold tension well after two weeks so far.
