Comments: This string is utter rubbish. They stopped making it years ago so all stock is old, and has become brittle. I had my last two restrings of it break within 5 minutes of starting to hit with it.
From: Matt, 1/13

Comments: I like this string, and I think it has plenty of potential. The stiffness is great, the power is there, and also great control. I don't believe people who found this string negative. It's great for the advanced player, and if you are one you should try this one for sure, as I think you will love it. I strung it in my Head Youtek Extreme Pro at 60 lbs and I found it very nice.
From: Charles, 11/12

Comments: I bought the Enduro Tour 5 pack for the value and when I was stringing my friend's racquet with a Gamma Progression II with the drop-weight, it was like pulling on a spring when I tensioned it! I didn't pre-stretch it but I don't think I could have pre-stretched it enough it was so bad. Never buy this string!
From: Marc, 11/12

Comments: A warning to anyone considering buying these strings. Don't. They have been out of production for years now and the stock available has degraded and become brittle and really prone to breaking. I've had my last 4 restrings pop on me within 30 minutes of use over the last month. It's sad as they were pretty decent strings when launched (down the softer end of polys).
From: Bobby, 7/12

Comments: The endurance of this string is remarkable. In fact, this is the only string I have ever used that lasted past its functional usefulness. Week after week during prime singles season, it hung in there, and leaves me to evaluate: Is this string still alive? Has it lost enough tension to compromise control? After two months, the answers aren't obvious, which is testimony to the string. It's certainly saved me some cash. With its initial low cost, a player can afford to change it often, even if it ain't broke.
From: Len, Indiana, USA, 10/10

Comments: This string is very durable and can take a lot of abuse. I can practice topspin or slice all day without fear that my set will notch through immediately. I string at 55lbs, which is about equivalent of syngut at 60lbs, but will give much better control, particularly on hard kick serves. Think about this as the string having less ability to stretch before it reaches maximum tension. This string is softer than Babolat pro hurricane, and is more comfortable because has slightly more elongation. I once got tennis elbow two years ago from over stringing Babolat pro hurricane and had to use MFs until I got my resistance back up, and so wanted to get back to poly but needed a softer poly. This was the ticket.
From: Craig, Acton, MA, USA, 10/10

Comments: Decent durability and pretty good soft feel, but this string loses its tension F A S T. Plays like absolute mush after just a few hours.
From: Bob, Findlay, OH, USA, 09/10

Comments: The 17 gauge Enduro lasts a long time, sometimes 10-15 sessions. The string will go dead after 10-20 hours, so it will last until you need to restring. Lot softer than, say, Babolat Hurricane. Have used it in my 6.1 BLX 90s at tensions anywhere between 50-58 pounds and find that feel changes dramatically. Have done 55 mains and used with Syngut in the crosses at 60 pounds with very good results. At 50-52 pounds, I need to slow down speed of my stroke as ball tends to arrive five to ten feet to the left of where I am hitting. Similarly, above 56 pounds, the ball tends to arrive five feet to the right of where I am hitting. On serves, this string has fierce bite and helps big kick serves; and durability of this string gives me confidence that I can really swipe the ball without sawing through the strings too quickly. So whether you are into topspin or slice, this is very economical string for training and practice sessions in which you want to put a lot of energy on the ball and practice your stroke without having to spend money because of frequent string breaking or loss of tension due to notching. I just bought another ten pack at 29.99 because this is such a good deal. I use this to string a pair of 6.1 90s. The string is stiff enough to poke through the hoop at cross-over point (because string gets in the way in the channel on my 6.1s), yet when hitting it seems soft enough to avoid any strain on the elbow, even with my boardy 6.1 frames. I like to swing heavy, and this string provides a lot of control in the center of the racket due to its lack of elongation (high modulus), which is not really possible with using syngut on mains (unless you string about 62 which is conducive to breaking. So durability and control are the predominant characteristics, and yet 17 gauge is soft enough so you don't kill your elbow. With non-stretchy strings like these, it is important to be accurate with your stringing tension, and more so than with synguts or multifilament strings which are much more forgiving. I don't think it is a good idea to hybrid these with MFs, unless you string the MFs at 5-7 pounds tighter than Enduro, and you should probably use the MF at 16 gauge with Enduro at 17 gauge since the MF loses tension much faster.

Comments: First off, the product description says "white", however I ordered these and when they came in the mail, the color is more like neon green. I don't know about anyone else, but I would prefer to not play with glow in the dark strings. Secondly, I used to play with Wilson nxt 17g and I switched to these because I could not afford to buy Wilson nxts every couple weeks I would break my strings. They are a horrible string to transition to. In the end you pretty much get what you pay for.
From: David Kim, SD, CA, USA. 03/10

Comments: I switched to the Wilson Enduro 17g from the Babolat 17g. Pro hurricane. What a mistake!!! My shots lost a considerable amount of spin and penetration. It feels like the ball is not going anywhere. You get what you pay for!!. If you like poly strings, stick with Babolat and

Comments: This string really isn't the greatest of the strings that you can buy from Wilson. I used this in a hybrid and it loosened up so fast that I just stopped using the string all together. I would not recommend this string if you want good tension maintenance.
From: Oliver 08/06

Comments: Good deal - better if it was a reel. A softer hitting string with good durability. Great tension stability at low string bed tensions. This is a great for someone who is ready to transition to a monofiliment from a multi. When I have customers say "oh just put something on it" they can't tell the difference until I tell them. They usually say "aren't mono filament strings really stiff.
From: Tom, Albany, OR, USA 07/06

Comments: I really dislike these strings. For me, I like the feeling of the ball staying on the strings awhile and having them move after if I hit spin. The strings NEVER moved position after a big spin shot and they got dead and dull easily and felt like they just trampoline off the racket with no control. I would give it a shot, if you like stiffness and some durability.
From: Alex, Plantation, Florida, U.S. 07/06

Comments: I strung this sting on my Babolat Aero Pro Drive at 60lbs. At first, I didn't like the string, but after a couple of days I loved them. They have really good feel and it's easy to put spin on the ball. I recommend this string to anyone who wants to play like a pro!

Comments:Soft strings. Been using polyesters for some time before. Should string these strings higher than your usual tension for kevlar or polyester strings.
Good feel and cup. Worth giving a try!

Comments: I strung a Head LM Instinct to 53 lbs with the Enduro Pro 17g. It is much softer than the regular Enduro, Luxilon ALU, or Ashaway Monogut. I thought the feel was great and spin felt a little easier to produce.
From:Fawad City, State, Country: Burke, VA

Comments: This string has good power, better feel and spin for a polyester, which in all prior cases I did not like. Wilson Enduro 17g is an improvement for polyester, but I still prefer the multifilament strings and Big Banger Ace over this string. Still, give it a try, you might find it to your liking. It's just not the string for me.
From: John, Pierre, SD, USA. 10/04

Comments: Amazing feel and power. I found good control and spin because the string seems to have good elasticity to pocket and hold the ball. Much better than the 16 gauge Enduro which is pretty lifeless and hurt my arm. Not stiff like Luxilon, but not a crisp. This string is a good deal.
From: David, Arlington, VA, USA. 08/04

Comments: This string is amazing. I was using Prince Wrapsure in my Wilson H6 for 2 months. I have spent over 150 dollars on that string within 2 months because I kept breaking it. Then a friend suggested I try this new string and I did. So far I like the string a lot hopefully it will last.
