Comments: I was very confused by my experience with this string. I use a Klipper drop-weight machine to string. I
could not get this string to tension properly -- it seemed to stretch so much that I could not keep the drop weight from dipping
inches below center, even when I pulled the string as taut as possible. I've never experienced this with a string. When I hit around
with it (strung my AeroPro Drive with this string), it was producing very erratic shots. Not sure what the "trick" is to string this
properly, but I'm going to cut it out and call it a test loss unfortunately.
Comments: This is a great string. I have used it only as a hybrid (as mains) in combination with poly (usually
Babolat RPM Blast 17). I strung two Babolat AeroPro Drives with the same tension (62/62 lbs), one with full poly (RPM 17) and the
other with the Weiss Cannon 6 Star Mains and RPM Blast 17 crosses for comparison. While the spin obtained by the full poly bed
was appreciably greater, the hybrid set up still had a great amount of spin and a lot more power. The feel with the hybrid set up
was greater as well. My opponent noticed the difference right away and commented on how much faster the ball was coming off
the hybrid set up and that this ball "felt" heavier. Surprisingly, the string holds its tension quite well and although it lost some
tension initially, it leveled off after the first few uses and remained stable at a tension that I could still work with. Compared to
other similar strings (Head FXP Tour) the 6 Star feels superior in all aspects (power, feel, tension maintenance). It is a set up that I
will continue to use periodically.
Comments: Hitting with a variety of strings like Recoil and M2 and hybrid strings, this 6 Star Supercharged from
Weiss Cannon feels and performs the best. Soft at first, then as tension drops and stabilizes, they stiffen up. They feel optimal the
first 6-8 hours of hitting. I've hit with them in the same frame now for over 20 hours and still enjoying them.
