This has got to be the worst string ever. I picked up a couple sets for 3 dollars off the Bay because I thought it would be worth trying. I think i'm just going to throw out the second set. String moves like crazy, feels like a board, and almost hurts to play with.

Amen to that. Probably the worst synthetic gut I've every played with. I think I like tournament nylon better.

They're basically identical to the Super Fine Play it replaced. SFP had high remarks from users here, myself included. It is a basic syn gut and cost less than $4...can't expect to play like a pack of $43 VS gut, no??

And did it ever cross your mind that there might be a reason that it is under $4 a pack?

Yeah, keep using your top notch, expensive polys that go dead after 5 hours and screw all your arm joints and then you will praise synthetic gut like everyone else.

It's worse than basic synthetic. I've used gosen and psgd, which are around the same price. This stuff is tenfold worse. There's just nothing good I can say about this string.

To you perhaps...I personally rank basic syn gut as Gosen Super JC > Babolat SFP > Wilson syn gut extreme > Prince OSG > Prince SGD...

As for stiffness, PSGD is stiffer than SFP...
