Comments: I put this on my Wilson PS97 at 55 lbs and it felt stiff even though its stiffness is rated at 140 on the TW website. It feels stiffer than Wilson Sensation Control 16 (stiffness at 150). It played fine without impressive feeling in strokes, volleys, and serves. The worst thing was it broke in 2 hours on a clay court. I decided to go with Sensation Control.

Comments: I strung it up at 52 lbs in a Pure Drive GT and was extremely happy with the results. It really complemented the stiff racquet with added touch and a softer ride. I could take full cuts at the ball without a fear of it flying and best of all, no elbow pain after playing. Nice string for the right circumstances!

Comments: I tried the silver version and it looks really cool. I did string it with Kirschbaum Max Power in the crosses. I did 57 lbs for Optimus and 54 lbs for the poly. It definitely wasn't my favorite hybrid. There was too much power, although I did notice some nice touch and feel. Durability was the worst part: the strings snapped in less than 3 hours. Given I put a lot of stuff on my serve and the poly was sawing into these Wilson strings, 2 and a half hours is simply unacceptable for the price. I'm going to switch back to a soft poly full bed.

Comments: Great string but only lasted about 5 hours of play.

Comments: Very nice multi if you don't need the power. Felt very easy on the the arm yet crisp at the same time. Spin was very good for a multi. It had a very unique feel not like a multi since the power was low. Control was great made very few errors but you really need to take full swings. I would buy it again but TVG is still my top multi.
