Comments: V-Pro 17g provides me with the best set for the best value. I used to use a hybrid Lux Rough 16g on the mains and Technifibre bi-Phase 16g on the crosses. By the way, that is a great set up too, but much higher cost and it would only give me about 6 hours of play then break or go dead. With the V-Pro 17g full bed at 59 lbs and after the first 30 minutes, it settles in around 53 lbs and I get about 8-10 hours per racquet until it either breaks or goes dead. I rotate between 4 racquets and am usually on the court 10-12 hours each week -- including drilling and matches. I'm a 5.0 NTRP player. I am disappointed this string is discontinued. My search begins for a replacement.

Comments: Seems like this string is being phased out. Thought I'd add my 2 cents before it goes away. If you like a round soft poly with slightly more power and above average tension maintenance, this is it. I've found that I play better with round poly's vs shaped, twisted, etc. To each their own. So, for me, this string is a great option, especially in a hybrid since it doesn't have any sharp edges that will inherently cut into whatever it's paired with. Additionally, it is definitely one of the easier polys to string. I've tried 4G, Alu Power, Cyclone, Cyclone Tour, round Yonex polys, Quadro Twist, Ultra Cable, and many others. I still keep coming back to this string, not just for the value but the playability. Highly recommend trying it out.

Comments: I have been using this string for 6 months on a Wilson PS 97. I string at 52-54 lbs. It is a way better value than Luxilon and has good durability. I play the 4.0/4.5 level, usually 4 matches a week, fairly big serve and baseline game and the string lasts up to 6 matches. I agree with the soft feel comments, and power is very reasonable on full strokes. Tons of spin effect as well. Well worth the time to try this string. Saving money is a great advantage over Luxilon.

Comments: Surprised at how few reviews there are on this! I was playing my best tennis with this string. Had just graduated from playing college tennis and was training everyday for futures events and loved the all around play from this 17g poly strung at 53 lbs in an APD+. It gave me everything I wanted -- soft feel with great grab on the ball for spin and could really pop a flat shot at any time. As well as great feel for touch and volleys. Durability was anywhere from a couple days to one week, just depended on how many hours I was putting in on that day. I'm a heavy baseline player and used many of the top brands of string and like this much more compared to lets say, RPM blast.

Comments: I concur with Geraldo. The 17g V-Pro has a soft feel and allows you to rip it with the benefits of control and spin. I have tried the 18g and 16g and found the 17g to be the perfect fit for me. I have a big serve and volley game and I am working hard on improving my baseline game at the 4.5/5.0 level. I am able to rip it while the string absorbs the impact not my arm and shoulder. I am getting about 10 hours with a full bed of V-Pro 17g. Rotate 4 racquets and you can go a month without restringing. I love the string and love the price. Grip it and rip it!

Comments: I used a full rig of the V-Pro 17g on my Pro Staff 100L and loved it. I don't know how it is that they're so cheap because, for a poly, it had a softer feel and the tension was also very reasonably durable. But more than anything, it allowed to swing the heck out of the ball, and it seemed like every ball was going in (and staying deep). I think I am going to try to combine it with either a guy or a multi just for the sake of trying different things, but I wouldn't be surprised if I end up going to the full poly rig with this string.

Comments: I strung both of my BB London at 50 lbs with V-Pro 17g and Luxilon Adrenaline 1.20 17g. I think the V- Pro has softer, comfortable feel and more power than Adrenaline. I will stick to V-Pro 17g with my London.

Comments: It's a great string for the price. I have been ripping forehands and the strings have been holding up well. It's the best deal compared to Luxilon.
From: Chris, 9/12

Comments: Really nice string at an awesome price. Found it pretty low powered and a pretty comfortable feeling string, and it was well suited to stiffer frames such as Organix 8 & Pure Drives. Great string for those after an excellent value for money, comfortable poly.
From: Nath, 5/12

Comments: Not low powered at all. Feels a little like Head Ultra Tour. Anyway, strung in my Youtek Prestige Mid @ 54 and I can rip'em. I'll stick with it cause there isn't anyway I'm paying $15-17 for a set of Luxilon.
