I got a sample from TW some time ago. Strung it up in a C10 and played. It played really well, reminded me of the old days when I played with gut. I think it was because it was uncoated, but it transmitted a lot of the old "gut feel" that I remembered with wood. Downside? I played one match and that night it broke in my bag.

My experience with it was similar to Rabbit's. I managed to get it strung, but noticed a lot of variation in the diameter of the string. It seemed to have quite a few thin spots in it. I wouldn't put it in any of my customer's racquets.

I also enjoyed it for the one match it lasted.

I got a few sets(one from TW I think and the others from the company).My experiences were similar to topspin,Gaines, and Rabbit's in that I found variances in the diameter and although it was uncoated which some like durability was poor and didn't last a set in 3 racquet.

The string we got as a sample from TW was uncoated so it made for difficult stringing and broke easily. I remember that afterwards they had started to coat it more but I haven't tried that one.

I've tried 2 sets and I could not string them without breakage on my Klippermate. I HAVE strung Bow Brand and Babolat Tonic successfully multiple times without any breakage, so I don't blame it all on my technique.

Those of you who got it into your frames successfully, congrats.

jhon peter, I think the experience szladob posted on the old board is the exception based on what I've seen on TW over the last year or so and my personal experience. It's pretty inexpensive though, so try it for yourself and let us know what your experience is with it.
