Disappointingly, I couldn't get a clear shot of the sharp edge on the Weed Wacker; the edge on that is sharper than on any other string!

Well, now all we need is a play-test comparison from you!

I think he already reviewed the weed wacker.

Anyways, are you a frequent string breaker? if not, I'd go with the Blue Gear 17g

I understand polys started to be used in tennis after some guy installed weed wacker strings on a racquet and discovered the kind of control that could be possible with the same. Then, the tennis companies made them thinner. And, later, started experimenting with formulas exclusive to tennis use, in other words, the co-polys were born. So, why should we be surprised of the similarities? Poly tennis strings come from weed wacker strings. So what?
