Spin and more spin
It don’t mean a thing if I ain’t got that spin! I’ve use many strings over the last few years, but Black 7 tops them all. Feel for the ball is second to none; the lack of wear and tear on the arm is second to none; the spin action is second to none. Playing with Black 7 string may cause you to display an uncontrollable little Cheshire cat grin – because the competition is playing with blah-blah-blah string and you’re about spin their world.
I've tried some more expensive strings, but I always end up coming back to these. Like the way they feel and my serve improves when using them. Nice blend of pace and spin.
Solid string w/ spin and power
the string helps me produce spin and pace I was looking for. with 53 lb, it has that soft, ball catching feel which gives you lots of playability. I might try using this string with different tensions to find out the best for me
The string lives up to its spin promises. It really "bites" into the ball, even leaving black marks on it where it chomped down. But there are counterpoints to make: 1. The edges on the string wear off quickly, so the spin potential doesn't last all that long. Fine if you always string fresh, but your performance will deteriorate over time. 2. I found it to lack feel when strung in both dimensions (I use the Lendl pattern, to soften the shock when hitting at the edge of the stringbed, but the sweet spot is strung with one string in both dimensions). 3. Those that expect the mains to dance around like Wilson pushes with their spin-effect racquets should look elsewhere. This string is so grippy that even threading the cross-strings is a challenge when stringing it as a hybrid. The mains are stuck where they are, and nothing will move them. Bottom line, if you want that bite that an edgy string can provide, this can do it, but I would do it as a hybrid, to retain some feel, and don't expect "sp
Love these strings, they have very soft feel and strangely feel a bit "wet". I used couple of soft poly strings and these seem to provide best power, control, and obviously the spin. As for their durability, they seem on par with other poly strings, if you're a hard hitter don't expect these to last all that long, not necessarily because you might break them, but because as all polys, these strings will go dead after good 10 hours of play.
I like the way the strings feel. Had been using rpm blast , these spin the ball better. Have better control of my serve.
