Does anybody use this in a full bed and if so how does it play?

We used it a few years ago. Pretty good pretty durable Poly. Think of a cheaper version of Alu Power. All our guys that used it though eventually switched to Wilson Enduro Pro. Overall I'd recommend the Enduro as a better string, but everyone has different preferences.

It was just a matter of preference for our players. It's more durable than most of the other Polys we've tried. It's fairly similar to Alu Power, though it doesn’t have quite the power. Some of our guys actually prefer it to Alu, again just a matter of personal preference.

I heard nothing but bad things about Wilson Enduro on this forum in the past. The most recent review was last week...

I was reading the feedback on tenniswarehouse, and ppl said the spin wasn't so great, and spin and angles are big in my game

Some of our Guys love it, and all the ones who used Prince Tour liked the Enduro more than the Prince Tour. Like I said, it's just a matter of preference. But we're getting a little off topic.

I'll hijack this thread even further - tigerstring, what does one have to do to be the equipment manager? It sounds interesting. I don't have the goods to be a D1, D2, D3 recruit, but it'd be fun to help them out.

It went off topic when Enduro was brought up...

Regardless, Prince Tour isn't the best poly in the Prince strings, actually, Prince polys are not that great to begin with.

I have tried the prince poly exp, and it was soft and not very good at all.

odd, i thought it was rather stiff.

but Tournament poly is a good generic string to use for first time poly users, especially those getting their rackets strung by me!

does everything a poly should do pretty well, but nothing great.

i still prefer cyberflash or luxilon (any) to prince poly's, though.

only reason i do use tournament poly is that my tennis club can get me reels of it for like 35 percent off the listed price, being that they carry prince models there. (ssh!)

i heard the cyberflash moves around alot, have you tried pro red code, or weiss silverstring?

The only one of those that I have experience with is Pro Code Red. It holds it's tension very well, but is fairly stiff compared to a lot of other polys available. So I’d recommend it only if you like a stiff string bed.

The Prince Tour loses a lot of tension. Enduro Pro holds tension quite well actually and it is proven because of the testing TW did on the string comparison tool. One great Poly thats cheap is Signum Pro Poly Megaforce. Under 90 dollars for a reel and is in the top 3 for tension.
