New high density co-polymer polyester (PET) monofilament combined with a new cross-linked silicone coating provides even more spin and greater ball control.

5 Stars Best String

I always find myself coming back to this string and wondering why I left it. Durable, spin, power, and not too stiff either.

5 Stars Durable

I'm not a huge hitter so I don't break poly strings too often. I replace these strings every few months usually because of tension loss. Excellent for helping to create extra topspin

5 Stars One of my favorites

Great control and spin- comfortable for a poly and offers just the right amount of pop, I love it!

4 Stars good control and power

from NY wrote (March 26, 2014):

More feel than RPM 16 or Big Banger and maintains good power. Get 10-16 hrs playing time before breaks (similar to Big Banger). 18 gauge breaks 6-8 hrs, but has even more control

5 Stars Great string
