Name: Gauge: Material: Diameter: Stiffness: Tension Loss:

Topspin Polypolar 1.25 Polyester 1.25 230 22.25
Topspin Polypolar 1.30 Polyester 1.28 235 24.72
Topspin Cyber Flash 1.20 Polyester 1.20 236 17.47
Topspin Cyber Flash 1.25 Polyester 1.23 240 15.54
Topspin Cyber Flash 1.30 Polyester 1.27 258 15.28
Topspin Cyber Power 1.20 Polyester ? ? ? ?
Topspin Cyber Power 1.25 Polyester 1.24 233 15.66
Topspin Cyber Power 1.30 Polyester 1.31 246 20.38

TCP 1.20 is missing. Is it possible to have the test result even for cyber power 1.20?

I've been a PP and CF user for a while now, so this is interesting info.

The tension loss on the poly polar ( 1.25g) is very high at 22.25.
CP much less tension loss at 15.66 with very similar stiffness (233 v 230).
CP has very similar tension loss as CF and a bit less stiff.

Sounds pretty good. I'm looking forward to trying CP.

The Poly Polar was not strung properly for this test and the numbers are thus not accurate. Anyone who knows this string knows you have to wait before clamping to allow the string to elongate. Failure to do this will result in skewed numbers like those presented by the USRSA.

I've always wondered about CyberFlash 1.20. Looks very similar to SPPP 1.18 which is
1.19mm 239 stiff 15.6 tension loss


thanks

Polar poly has always felt much soft than cyber flash to me, I do not agree with the stiffnest numbers for these two.

Am now playing with gut/sys gut hybrid, and former wrist pain is gone, I do believe that gut is more than twice as easy on the wrist, arm, etc than polys.

so cyberflash is the stiffest? i just tried pp and thought it was a little too soft for me. does cf give more spin than pp?

i have a reel of 1.20 cyberflash
it's in my ti.radical mp at 73 lb on a drop weight
there is more of a ping sound when you hit than the 1.25
also more crisp
don't think the tension lose was that much
i actaully had to step on the racket to soften the strings cuz it wasn't losing enough tension (hoping it would drop to around 68)
and thats my experience

I feel that CF is quite a bit crisper and does produce more spin that PP. One thing that is important with PP, and it has been mentioned many times here, is that you let it stretch out before clamping. If not, it will feel too soft/mushy. Even so, it is still much softer than CF.

Problem with those test results is that half of them feel wrong. I stopped paying attention to them long time ago.

ya cant agree more... Data , test result are base on the reviewer and tester themselves. Most important is to test and feel it for yourself... you are the one using the string, you should be the one comfortable with it 1st.....

hi ripper,

Welcom come to the CP club, i have string full CP on my pure drive plus (56/59) wow it actually felt better then my full CF

thanks. i definately let it stretch before clamping. i was amazed at how stretchy it was. i read that it was really soft and stretchy but it was stretching like a multi or something! i will be giving cf a try soon.
