Comments: Strung at 58 lbs both ways in a 98 inch head, 12 ounce racquet. Very arm friendly (softer then Cyclone
Tour), average durability (maybe 20-25 hours before the string starts to let off and fray), better than average spin potential, fair
tension retention, you have to generate the power but very good control. Have you ever noticed that the "geared" textured strings
have their edges rounded out as soon as you apply the tension from the stringer? With the grooved x-section on the V-torque the
tension seems to pull the edges of the groove out providing more ball-biting surface than I get with other brands.
Comments: I had this strung at 58 lbs. as a full bed on my Volkl PB10 Mid. The strings snapped around the outside
of the frame of my racquet which is a first for me. The strings lasted for about 10 hours of hitting. I hit with heavy topspin and
this string definitely produced more spin since my regular hitting partners commented that my shots were bouncing higher than
Comments: Not friendly for stringing. Very nice spin production. After 10 hitting lessons this string splits in the
middle of crosses. I have never seen that before on a poly. I broke it in 20 minutes, but 18 poly is not made for adults with heavy
Comments: Tried this in my Extreme Pro at 50 lbs with a full bed. Very good spin, great depth and feel. They broke
in 3 weeks playing around 6 hrs per week, so durability is a slight issue.
Comments: Tried this string in the mains with Babolat Xcel as cross strings - both at 52 lbs on my Yonex Vcore
Tour 89. I am usually a flat ball hitter but my hitting partner was saying I was generating a lot of top spin with depth. I credit it to
the V Torque string. Great feel and control. I haven't tried the full bed though.
Comments: I am 4.5-5.0 player that serves big, but likes to use heavy kick in a pinch. However, as of late, I have
come down with shoulder issues, so have had to search for softer less shock-y strings. I currently string this as my main string at
lbs along with Isospeed Control+ for crosses at 58 lbs on my Wilson 2012 BLX Six.One 95 (16x18). After trying many hybrids (over
30, mixing and matching mains and crosses and tensions) including having tried Volkl's Cyclone and Cyclone Tour, I can say this
my favorite. Great spin and control, plus outstanding feel and extremely easy on the arm. The only possible downside of the
as a poly is the decreased durability and tension stability, not to say that it is poor, it is just not the best. Overall, one of the top
strings I have tried. I pray that they will start production of reels of this particular string!
