Comments: I put the green V-Torque 17 in a Pure Aero. The spin was really amazing from all areas of the court, most noticeably on serve and groundstrokes. Control was pretty good, good pop, and a lot of bite on the slice. Surprisingly not too jarring on the arm compared to some of the otehr polyesters out there. The two issues for me were: 1. V-Torque, due to its shape, notches incredibly quickly and therefore, breaks a little sooner than other polyester strings; 2. String movement wasn't that great. I pre-stretched my set so tension hasn't dropped very much and it's been a few weeks. Overall, amazing spin but not quite the type of feel I'm looking for.

Comments: I had to start using the green color since the blue is discontinued by Volkl. The green has the same play ability and feel. Even in blue racquets, it looks really cool.

Comments: I really liked the blue version of this string but it is discontinued now. I was very happy with the tension retention and spin it has in my Wilson Ultra 103S. I hit pretty hard, flat shots since I use a continental grip all the time. When it's time to restock string, I will definitely buy more of this string.

Comments: I got this set in the Volkl poly trial pack. I strung it up in a Prince Tour Pro 100 at 52 pounds. I hit with them four times (about 8 hours). When fresh, they offered a lot of pop and, in my opinion, put a lot of spin on the ball. But I found that by the third and fourth hitting sessions, the strings weren't snapping back into position, and weren't putting as much spin on the ball. The positive is that I didn't notice any drastic drop in tension, nor did they ever feel harsh. I don't usually use textured strings, but these were a good experience.

Comments: These strings are exactly what they are advertised as. Huge spin potential, which I liked. If they had a little more power, they would have been the perfect string. Fortunately, I had the Volkl Organix 7 295 racquet which had power to spare. Will eventually put some RPM Blast or something like that in my stick to see if I can handle that power.

Comments: I'm a 4.0 aggressive baseliner. These strings broke after 20 minutes of hitting. Tried them again on another racquet, and the same thing happened. Will definitely not be getting these again.

Comments: This string is the best shaped poly I have ever used. Not only are the edges as sharp as Ginsu's, but it has a soft feel in impact to boot. Perfection. Lasts a while too.

Comments: Update from my review exactly one year ago: After trying V-Torque 17 last year, I managed to buy a few more packs on my trip to the US a few months ago to see if V-Torque really will be my go-to string. Long story short, it's still one of my favorite co-polys and agree with everything Peter has said. Like I said in my review, this string is low powered, has incredible bite on the ball for spin and it's one of, if not the best string I've used for control, consistently finding the lines and corners. Now new things to add: I've tried the green and blue version and somehow I find the green one to have a little more pop, but it might just be me. I have strung this between 46 and 52 lbs and it's perfect in my 98 square inch racquet. I find the string not very crisp nor muted, kind of in the middle and not harsh on the arm, which is nice since I had shoulder injuries. I reserve this string for tournaments because it's amazing when fresh. It does notch quickly, but playability remains great until it breaks which is 2-3 weeks max so not very durable. I will conclude by saying I really wish I could get this string in my country because I would buy a reel.

Comments: If you can hit hard, do not buy these strings. I unfortunately got the 4 pack deal and thought great deal on all 4 strings, these however broke in 2 hours of play. I tried them again with the other 4 pack I bought, same result. If you can serve over 100 mph and hit topspin, they are a waste of money. Stick to V Pro or Solinco Outlast co polys.
From: Chris, 7/14

Comments: Great string, excellent spin, and of all the polys I've played with this one has exceptional feel and comfort. I've found that after hard hitting, the unusual string shape tends to causing longitudinal splitting which propagates quickly. When this starts I know I only have a few sets left before they break, so for me I've only been getting around 3 weeks out of a string which isn't great. But compared with a multi I can't complain. I'm committed to these strings, strung at 51 lbs. TW please get some reels for sale!

Comments: I'm a 4.5 offensive baseliner and I love these strings. Strung at 52/50 lbs on a customized/more polarized Dunlop Biomimetic 300 and the control was so impressive! When freshly strung, I was taking huge swings at the ball and was surprised it consistently landed just inside the lines. Second time I played, the control dropped slightly, but was still very good. 4hrs of play and the playability is still great so far but with a little bit of notching. The spin is great as the shape does seem to grab the ball well. Feel is crisp but not stiff and is quite comfortable. The neon green color started out annoying but I got use to it. I might switch to these (just wish TW stocked reels of V torque). Anyway, if you like a low powered string, crisp feeling without being uncomfortable then give these a try!
From: Ken, 10/13

Comments: Emphasis on topspin. Tried a full bed, did not like it at all. Did a hybrid with a synthetic gut on the crosses, felt perfect, especially with pocketing and control. You do get that surprise spin, if that's your game. Alone it lacks power. Would recommend it as a hybrid, not a full bed.
From: Andy, 8/13

Comments: Great strings. The spin potential is incredible thanks to the shape. There isn't as much power as, say, Cyclone Tour which I recently playtested, but they offer slightly better control and similar levels of comfort. The playability duration is looking good after 5 hours of hitting. Highly recommend!
