If you're an intermediate player, playing 2-3 a week, this poly string is definitely a must try. I've been playing with it for more than 5 years. Great durability, very comfortable on the arm/elbow and excellence on control/depth for my topspin shots. I have not found a better string.
One of the best multifiber strings I've tried, excellent strung as a hybrid with Poly in the mains.
These strings give me control but are soft. I strung my Volkl Super G5 Organix racquet with them. No more tennis elbow.
I use this poly in mains with Technifibre NRG2 in crosses on head prestige (2-years now). I tried many other strings and this poly maintains tension much better than other poly strings (for example babolat hurricane). The NRG2 or other gut strings give racquet more lively feel at the net and on ground strokes. If you buy 17-Gauge, expect 2-3 months (3-days a week) life span. If you get 16-Gauge, it lasts much longer but then poly can loose tension over time and you will cut it out before it breaks....
This is currently my favorite poly which has similar characteristics of more expensive string sets from Luxilon, Babolat and others. Good spin potential. Good durability. Easy to string. Great strings at a great price.
Excellent tennis string at a great price for poly.
Like the way it feels when I hit the ball
I thought I would try these out several years ago and have used nothing else in my long strings since. I use superspiky for longs and prince synthetic for crosses. I use 17 guage and have never broken a long string even though i hit with a lot of spin
I'd give these strings 5 stars, but I've only got 8 hours on them. I had this strung in my Babolat Aerodrive plus at 58lbs, have Babolat RPM Blast in my second Aerodrive plus at 58 lbs. I really like the Spiky Shark over the Blast. I can generate as much spin with the Shark, but without the elbow becoming tender. I can really take heavy cuts and keep the ball inside the baseline. Tension holds well, haven't noticed excessive wear. Price is good.
Solid string, very durable, nice feel, and good for hitting heavy topspin.
Durable and easy on the arm, has a lot of bite and spin.
I hybrid Spiky Shark in the mains at 55lbs with Sensation Control in the crosses also at 55lbs in my Roddick PD Plus. I USED to be an RPM Blast guy but SS blows that string out of the water. I'm a baseliner that loves to grip it and rip it and SS allows me to do that! Plus people hate my lefty slice with this string!!! Another site also rates SS as having the highest spin potential than any other string. Having messed with a few other textured strings I believe it!
This 8-sided string has produced improved spin, control and pace on my serve. Have had good success serving at the 4.0-4.5 levels. Also, it has eliminated elbow pain that I've experienced from stiffer spin-oriented strings.
Read some good reviews about it and since I love the other Kirschbaum strings I've tried, decided to try this one also. As good as as the other poly's I've tried but a little softer and easier on the arm.
