How does it play compared to Prince Premier with softflex? Or just how does it play in general? Anyone used this before?

*edit*, nevermind, I was just informed that it is a very crappy string, lol.

By who? I've heard it's a pretty crisp and nice string.

Give FXP a try it is not a bad string at all.

There's a little search button up on the blue bar there *points*

Results says it's a generally nice string.

fxp is a nice string, nice and low-powered as far as synths go.

Crisp is not a word I'd use to describe it. It plays nicely, with good power, is elastic, and is soft but not at all mushy; but I would not describe it as crisp. I have one of my racquets strung up with it right now.

one of my tournament friends told me this. By the way, do you think it exceeds the Prince Premier with softflex?

They do different things. Prince Premier with Softflex is a soft, comfortable multifilament with good power; FXP is a Head string with Head's usual muted, laid-back feel, reduced power and high durability--due, in this case, to polyester being mixed in.

Is this what they would put in a brand new head microgel extreme pro directly from head?

Maybe; although you might want a bit more than a control-and-durability string to balance out an already low-powered racquet like that one.
