I really liked my Prince Premier Softflex, a nice soft string with touch, a good mix of durability and playability. I'm sure it's not the best but I like it.

I haven't played with many by any means however:

Wilson NXT Tour 17g

Its feel is really its only strength (soft yet crisp). Otherwise, I found the string to be average. It doesn't pocket the ball as well as some other strings, and the mains move all over the place.

The tecnifibre x-one biphase is an excellent string, it feels so darn close to gut.(multifilament)

Klip Legend Nat. Gut. NBMJ's comments got me to try this string, and I really like it. Besides it's great play, it has a great sound when hitting the ball.

I wholeheartly agree. And it's $10 less a set than VS.

Luxilon Big Banger Original..... the heaviest ball you will ever hit, if you can generate enough racquet head speed.


An amazing all around string, although not particulary great at any one thing, however the mix of all of it's different properties produce an amazingly lively and heavy ball off of the string bed.

have tried Prince Premier softflex, nxt tour, X1, lux alu power, and lux bb ace 18. currently testing out lux timo 18 in my shark. Was attracted to the touch aspect and extra control over the ACE 18 it supposedly has. durability is not an issue as the polys usually lose it's playability before they pop for me.

off topic...@ biggiestuff.

are you playing with the 27' standard shark?
I am thinking about picking up the LongBody on TW for 80 dollars, seeing as i've played with Prince sticks in the past and I think the Shark will fit my game.

What do you think about your Sharks? What game style do they fit?
