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.

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.

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: I string my Wilson BLX90 with this string at 55-56 pounds, and it feels very smooth and lasts 10-15
hours at least. The feeling is very good, particularly on big swings and meeting the ball in the center. Compare this to 16 gauge
syn gut at 60 lbs which seems too elastic in center hits. This Enduro string has less to stretch until maximum tension, and this
provides better control than syn guts and multifilaments. I have even strung a very flexible racket (96") at 50 pounds and found
this string still gave good control.
From: Kmbal, Acton, MA, USA. 07/10
Comments: Great string, nice feel and accurate control. It feels like you are hitting the ball with your hands. Good
power. I recommend this string!
From: Yikai, tianjin, china. 5/10
Comments: I've been using the Polylast 17 for just about a year now after a
friend had recommended it to me. This string really lasts and it has pretty good control and
feel at the same time. Lately though I've been looking a for a durable Polyester string that
has even more feel and control while still being amazingly durable. With many new Polyester
strings out there, I think I'm going to switch.
From: Alex, Guilderland, NY, USA. 4/03
Comments: I tried both the 16 gauge and the 17 gauge of Polylast. I would have
to say that if you string your own racquet, go for the Polylast 17. It has a better feel and much
better grab of the tennis balls. I hit better topspin stroke with the 17 gauge compared with
the 16 gauge strings. Durability is particularly good on the 16 gauge version. It breaks by
average of 16-20 hours of playing. I have played the 17 gauge only for two hours and can't
tell how long it would last.
