You can't fairly rate a string unless you consider how much you pay for it. This string is an awesome value. A 660' reel for $17 ???? Are you joking. I've been using this string as my "base" level string for my customers and everyone loves it, considering the price. Sure, there may be players that "think" their game deserves more, and maybe that's a valid point for some. But this string is every bit what most people need.
