I've only heard good reviews of it. Nadal's string is a cheap string and he does fine with it, just personal preverence. May not be the Prince string though.

This is the link to the new string by Yonex in Japanese. To make things easier, I will be translating the page.

In late February of 2010, we, at Yonex, will introduce a durable, high quality tennis string, "PolyTour Pro 125".
PolyTour Pro 125 is a string co-developed with the 2009 All Japan Tennis Doubles Champion and Yonex Advisory Staff, Satoshi Iwabuchi.
Typically, polyester is a durability oriented material, but has a tendency to shrink. Once the material shrinks, the quality of the material deteriorates.
The new PolyTour Pro 125, thanks Yonex's special "Thermo Pre-Stretch Technology" which stretches the string in a controlled temperature environment during manufacturing, increases the string's durability and prevents the shrinkage of the material. This process increases the longevity of the string's playing characteristics and the sound.

Yonex Stats:
15% Increased Durability (compared to other 1.25 mm. polyester)
1.3% Playability Retention (compared to other 1.25 mm. polyester)

I read elsewhere that Yonex has a natural gut too. I don't see it for sale anywhere. What is your email?

Yonex Natural Gut is made by Pacific, and it is only available in Japan as a half set. The closest you can find is the half set Pacific gut available at TW.

G string with spaghetti straps hybrid actually, combines both power and feel, twice as durable as Lux/VS hybrids
