Likes: With these strings, I am putting much more spin and power into the ball. These strings are amazing! Cons: The stings reflect light very well and sometimes distract me and my opponent.
Generates a lot of spin, soft feeling
I like the soft feeling of the string especially right after the rackets are strung (I switched from Babolat RPM). This string also generates a lot of spin. You can hear the string moves when you hit balls. The price is also good, especially when you purchase more than 3 strings. However, the string suddenly loses the elasticity after 6-hr play, resulting in stiffer feeling. I usually break my strings after 6-10 hours of playing, so stiffening is not a major issue for me though. Overall, I will give this string 4 stars.
I like the feeling and spin on the racquet!!!
Great while it lasts
Black widow has tremendous bite and seems to provide incredible spin whether attempting top or under spin. It is a poly string so the life of the string can be short particularly if you are a heavy hitter. This is my string of choice however, I wish I strung my own rackets...
