Comments: This is a great string indeed! Great durability and tension maintenance. Zero movement of strings. You just need to adjust to the lower tensions if your racquet is stiff, or go higher if it is flexible. I use this string as the mains at 48 lbs and Weiss Cannon TurboTwist 18 as cross at 52 lbs on a Volkl Organix 4. This way I get the spin, control and power I want. The TurboTwist provides the power I need. I highly recommend this setup using Black 5 Edge as mains and TurboTwist as cross. If 48/52 lbs is too low for your type of game, you can go higher but not to much as these polys work better in lower tensions.
Comments: Switched from Silverstring X Turbo Twist. I was slightly concerned with the fatter gauge but I don't feel as though I have suffered for it. I don't have to run as high a tension as the previous strings to get the same control but more comfort. I am using a Dunlop 300 4D Tour and have been using 5 Edge for around 6 months now.
Comments: I have played with this string for 2 days now. I can't say much about the durability yet but in terms of spin control, this is just plain awesome. I can literally see the ball arc up and down. Not much power though so make sure you have seasoned arms that can provide your swing with enough power. I previously used Luxilon Big Banger TiMo.
Comments: I am a Babolat RPM Blast 16 user and I decided to give these a try. I strung them at 55 lbs in my Babolat Aero non cortex and played with them for two hours. For me, they felt too stiff, but had great spin especially on the second serve kicker, ground strokes. However, the ball fell shorter in the court because there was more spin and less power. It is a good string for the price point. Maybe I will try a lower tension next time.
Comments: I had been playtesting strings for over 9 months until I came across Black 5 Edge on the recommendation of a friend. I use it at low tension in the mains with a multi cross. I just love everything about it. It is soft, low powered, has high spin potential, good feel and a reasonable price. The 5 Edges are not very pronounced so it does not saw into the other string like other sharp polys do. This also makes it easier to string up.
Comments: Will have to agree. Tension maintenance and arm friendliness with the same amount of spin and power as RPM after 2 weeks of play!! (You RPM hitters know what I am talking about). Simply amazing.
Comments: I think this is the best poly out there. Great spin and tension maintenance without the arm pain associated with the usual suspects. Have been playing this for several months now to great results.
Comments: Great string. Incredible tension maintenance. Nice pocket feel and soft for a poly. I prefer in a hybrid setup, either as main or cross. It beats many polys with bigger names. Pros and non pros can benefit from this string.
