This string blows me away with the combination of good aspects. Unless you are a strictly natural guy player you are going to enjoy this string. The closest thing that come sto the feeling of it is Bbt RPM blast. The RPM looses tension faster and feels slightly more spongy than these. They are much more playable that Lux ALU rough. sometimes I can have them in for one to tow months of hard hitting depending, and only starts to drop tension around the last few days before it breaks. Tons of spin and control and i can feel the ball pretty well for a poly.
