    This is a great string. It looses tension quick so I would account for that in the stringing unless you are going hybrid or per-streching them

    Prince Topspin Duraflex

    About 15 years ago I tried many topspin strings and settled on Prince topspin. Then I discovered the Duraflex (PTD) version and it lasts twice as long -it's very forgiving and generates power when you have to. The string gives me good bite on the ball and gets it over the net but in the court. I've tried other hot-shot strings that the 'pros play with' that gave me more power but no control and also can't stand the metallic titanium feel - the guys who recommended those 'power' strings all have shoulder problems!. So back to PTD and all's well. Just ordered a dozen packs for the year.

    Prince Syn Gut 17G is a great buy. I hit flat with a head light racket and this string feels soft and provides great control when strung at 58 lbs. I wouldn't say that the playing properties last as long as other more expensive strings or that it provides maximum power but you can't beat the price and it will relieve some of the stress on your arm produced by stiffer strings.

    I love this string. I usually string my racquets with poly mains and Gosen Proform on my cross strings, and o love the durability and the feel. It is a very good string to string and for the money you can't beat it. I string a lot of the guys I play tennis with during the week of all levels, and they love it. I have used this string for at least ten years, and I have nothing bad to say about it.

    Gosen makes a quality made in Japan single core synthetic gut comparable to prince synthetic gut and other well known synthetic guts. I use it as a cross string in a poly/synthetic gut hybrid. The white version is a bit stiffer than the natural colored one. So if you prefer a softer string, get the natural color. I get a bit more spin on my serve using the 17 vs the 16 gauge.

    Prince Syn Gut with Duraflex is the best synthetic gut available. I have strung many racquets with different types of synthetic and this one definitely lasts the longest and is the perfect combination with a polyester string. I use it for all levels, from beginners who string their whole racquet with this, to highly competitive players who use a hybrid.

    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.

    The string is an excellent value and plays very similar to the gamma synthetic gut, but at a lower price. The lower cost does allow me to play around with string tensions without worrying too much about price. I also string my own rackets, about 1 per month, I play about 3 - 4 times per week.
