Has anyone ever compared the performance between Tecnifibre NRG2-17 and Wilson NXT-17 as far as power, control, shock, tension loss, and longevity are concerned?

I would say the following about these two strings, NRG is a softer string the NXT;

NRG2 - more power (than NXT), less shock, greater tension loss, less durability
NXT - more control, more shock (than NRG), less tension loss, more durability

I am actually testing out strings, and I have used nrg2 already, but not NXT. NXT will probably be the next I use. But the nrg2 was very soft, and offered excellent feel, but durability was pretty bad. I shredded through the strings in about five hours of playing time.

Totally agree with @ce. NRG is more elastic/bit more resilient and NXT is probably a bit more durable.

Thanks for all your input! I typically use NRG2, but I was forced to restring during the middle of tennis camp, and only Wilson strings were available at the pro shop. I thought that NXT was closest to NRG2 given the choice of NXT, Sensation or Stamina strings.
