Well I finally tested this string, after 6 months I did it:mrgreen:


And ..... Drum rolll please........ Best stiff string I have played with!


In comparison to what? Pro Poly Plasma 18g (tested in LMIXL, not prestige)


Now the wave power is actually a hybrid of wave octogonal mono (has an octogonal shape going through out the string) and a softer more powerful mono
Gauge 1,28/1,20 mm

Racquet tested in LMP+ 18X20, now what I was looking for was more spin as I am a spin master/monster:mrgreen:


Most people would freak out over me using a stiff string like this in a 18X20 pattern, but this mono (mono is simular to poly) is very very versitile.

The string bed had very very good give to it soft for a ploy/mono but stiff compared to a synthetic, the string did not move what so ever at any point.

It was soft as stated but very very firm I would describe it as the best between a synthetic but all of the characteristics that is loved of a poly.

Power was very good and on par to a synthetic, comfort was high, crisp but not shocking and an ever so slight pocket, I did not lose tension even after 5 straight house of all out hitting

You have really feel the raspy texture of the octogonal.

Testing was done in real game scenario and in spin competition

For a poly/mono the spin was very very good, but as I soon found out poly/mono in a tight pattern of the LMP+ did not allow for full pocketing of the ball.

In spinning the ball with my LMP+ I totally need deap pocketing and dwell in order to get the spin out of the tight string patter.

I did reagain 75% of the spin but you need a completely different stroke and that through me off.

I feel that I would have had far superior spin results if I had used the string in an open pattern or a larger headed racket.


It was really acurate and I would say had the acuracy edge over the NXT I usually use


The string is much cheaper than Poly Plasma or anything that Luxion has to offer, but it in my opinion performs better, and best yet it is already a hybrid with much much thought put into it.


That is all I can think of for now, if you have any questions please ask, I have 3 hybrid sets left over and am will to allow some people to test this out as long as you compensate me for it. The sets are $8.50 that is how much it cost me shipped all the way from France:mrgreen:




So if you want to switch to something stiffer than a synthetic or if you love poly or kevlar ect but don't want to deal with the pain or high price or lack of spin.

Wave Power!

I have also try the Wave Power and it's an awesome sting. Do you know what? Before he switch to alu power/vs gut, Marcos Baghdatis was using the Wave Power. He use it during the year 2004 and the summer 2005! Try it, the spin potential and the control is amazing!
