Hey guys, I currently use Biphase 17g on my Flexpoint Prestige Mid Plus. I have broken my last set of strings and am thinking about Excellerator 17g. If anyone has hit with both, I would appreciate if you have a summary of your experiences, and state which you prefer and why. Thanks

I plan on doing the same comparison soon. My expectations are that the X-1 will be more comfortable and potentially hold tension better, while the Excellerator might be more powerful, but stiffer. I love the X-1, frankly. It's giving my current favorite multi, Klip Venom, a run for its money.

I'm basing this on research that I've done on these strings and from other opinions from TW members. But the true test will be how they perform at comparable tensions in MY racquet. I plan on doing a side-by-side comparison. If you can wait a few weeks or so (maybe a month), I'll probably have it done by then.

I went from X-1 to the Klip...found the Klip livlier, lasted longer, still extremely comfortable and matched up w/the X-1 in other areas. So for me the extra durability and additional zip were the closers to switch. Both are great, IMHO, and you can't go wrong w/either.

I string biphase at 58, should I up my tension on the klip?

I'd string them both the same.
