Kevlar for sure, Ive never played with it but my coach uses it as he CBA to string and he's had it in for ages

how often do you play? how hard do you hit?

i play about 4 hours a week avg. sometimes more and i hit with moderate topspin, but mostly a flat hitter

Hi LanEvo,

Just wondering, what makes kevlar your string of choice? Over say a co-poly? Or anything else?

Regards,
Steve

well for now im really into the thinner poly strings because i like the spin generation from polys, alot of multis that i have tried have too much power, like nrg2

Kevlar would most likely win but that is just a guess.

Kevlar has that fiber stuff inside. I pick Kevlar.
