According to the grapevine, Tecnifibre are working on a revolutionary string, a co-poly multifilament, that is meant to end the reign of Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power. Tecnifibre are going to hand out free samples to the pro's at the French 2010. The difficulty has been finding a glue that can hold the poly filaments together, but they have apparently cracked it. I can't wait for this one to come out.

Nope, it's a bunch of very thin poly filaments glued together, whereas normal multi's are made up of nylon-based filaments.

All strings claim this. Plus Technifibre strings are as overpriced as Luxilons.

They are overpriced, but not to the extend of Luxilon (whose prices are ridiculous). And if the world's nr. 1 string manufacturer (and multifilament specialist) claim they have a Alu-beater, I'm at least interested in seeing the result.

Are you aware of Tecnifibre's Promix, already out too? http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Tecnifibre_Promix_16_String_/descpageACTFUSA-TPMS.html

And Prince's Lightning Power? http://www.racquetsportsindustry.com/articles/2005/01/prince_lightning_power.html

See the lab test tension loss and stiffness results for both then: http://www.racquetsportsindustry.com/issues/200809/200809allstrings.html

The Promix (combination of nylon and poly) and Prince Lightning Power (solid core with multi wraps), are not comparable to this new string, which consists solely of poly filaments.

I for one will be very interested to see this and give it a go. I alreadsy find tecnifiber strings better than luxilon so it should be pretty easy for them.

I guess you can expect some softening, but will it lick the problem of excessive tension loss? Frankly, when it came out, I thought Lightning Power afforded the best solution in play for its type, especially due to its Powerfoil wrap, which finally afforded us some touch in a polyester-affected string. But, people continued to prefer hybrids, strangely enough.

Obviously,these 2 are great companies,when you talk about strings,but the string market today ,Thank God,has great strings all over the place just as great as these big companies have,and even better in some circumstances.
Ex:Signum Pro,MSV,WeissCannon,TopSpin...and cheaper

I agree, but still looking forward to testing if this new string will keep its promises :twisted:

I agree that the Multi strings in particular from Tecnifibre is pretty much overpriced, just like Luxilon, but they sell a lot, so why not charge this high price - even though I would like it to be cheaper, I still buy Tecnifibre strings on occasions, because they make really high quality strings.

Isn't WeissCannon Turbo Twist composed of multiple co-polys twisted and heat-fused together? It's a great string.
