I've been considering to start using this string because of the good customer reviews on TW and the price. But I would like to get more opinions, pros & cons, and which gauge?

I use a Wilson BLX 6.1 95 18x20 and play a very baseline oriented game.

Thanks guys.

It is a good string but you shold go with the 16, the thinner ones do not last too much.

I found both 16 & 17 to be very soft...and doesn't feel anything like Alu Power as many had suggested...

How much longer does the 16g last compared to the 17? And how is the comparison for spin potential between the 2?

Not much a difference, but if you aren't a string popper, 17 gauges feel better in a tight string pattern. I have a prestige and I always get nothing above 1.25 gauge or else I hate it.

17L essentially just means is drops tension quicker, no?

I'm not really sure what the L means, but I think it may be a bit thinner.

I am not sure about spin potential, I would assume that the thinner gauge is better for this. About durability, as other said, it is up to your type of hitting. Just as a reference, for a friend of mine the 17 gauge lasts a week and the 16 gauge last a month. He is hard hitter and uses a Pure Drive.

17L means it's the thickness between a standard 17 & 18...

I like the 17g
Most of my customers have found the 17 gauge to play the best - a little bit softer than Luxilon but it's worth the cheaper cost

Also, how does this string work in a hybrid? most likely with prince syn gut

Not sure where you got this info from, but I string a friend's racket (Babolat Pure Storm Tour) w/ the 17g at 65lbs, and it lasts well beyond its playability life. And he's no slouch, being a 4.5 level player w/ a serve topping out at ~ 130MPH.

Now, I'm not sure how his arm doesn't fall off at 65lbs, but that is how he likes it.

Personally I like the Concept Pure better. I tried CyberFlash but developed wrist problems, although its not 100% that it was due to the string.

I normally play with ALu at 50 and Cyber falsh at 52 and they have the same characteristics. IMO

It is just my experience, I am sure it is not the same to everybody.

Use CyberFlash and CyberBlue in Wilson tour.
String the blue at 55. 17g
Flash at 53. 17g
Not a string breaker, cut them out about every two/three weeks.
The blue plays more muted for me.
Flash is crisper in feel.

CF is a great Lux Alu Power clone. It's alot more comforting then Lux for sure.
