No, here in Germany it's an old poly. It's very very stiff.
I don't if you can buy it in the US.
Does anyone know?

No, Nadal uses Tour Duralast, that's sure.

Is the Tour Duralast string "playing characteristics' similar to the ashaway dynamite 17g string (at low tension approx. 50lbs tension)?

It's a pain in the arse to string with - it's so stiff it's like chicken wire, I used to string a few Pure Drives with it for a colleague of mine, 65lbs with that stuff was like hitting with a 2x4 for me!!
