I have always strung my racquets in a hybrid with Wilson NXT and Gosen Comfort, however, I break the NXT after about 4-5 hitting sessions and the price was getting to be a little much for my taste. I decided to go for Thunderblast because I had heard for a poly it is one of the softest strings with great directional control. Long story short I love everything about this string. It lasts longer than NXT and provides a soft feel. My ONLY criticism is that the black paint on the strings wears off quickly.
