Produces spin well, but loses tension too quickly
For the price this string is good.
have used this in hybrid with MSV Focus Hex and full bed at 60lbs,,, good pop, control, good tension main. soft cushy feel, hard to decide what has better playability, PSGO or this? The ball really has a loud whack when you hit it, almost like a firecracker going off. can really get a lot of feeling off it. using full be on wilson K Factor 6.1 95
Great feel and control with good power. Holds tension well. I hit with a dense string pattern Head Prestige Mid. My practice partner hits with a more open pattern and more spin with his Pure Drive but he also likes the string a lot.
This is my first ever reel of strings. I'm a cheapy, so this was a great value. I strung a full bed on my friend's Prince TT, and he said it felt good. I've read that a hybrid would work better, so I'm looking forward to doing that on my Gamma Tour 320x. Great racquet btw.
Great cross for hybrids
I bought a couple sets to use as crosses for my hybrid setups. They seem to increase the sweet spot, as they say, and makes the overall stringbed feel soft and powerful. I recommend them, not only for their performance, but also for their unbeatable price as well.
Aside from being durable, it gives more power and spin to my game. The cheapest Kevlar string. So sweet!!
The Best in 20 yrs
I should qualify by saying that I love kevlar in the mains (as did Agassi) for control but also for the way it compress the ball. I used to use Tennex Hi-Kev (no longer made). These are better and surprisingly, cheaper. They bite the ball and the harder you swing the more they bite. They are at their best on volleys. Contol, Spin and they last forever - what more could you ask?>
