    Due September

    I wrote Babolat to ask them for some sample string, and they told me they didn't have any, but they would be in stores in the US in September. I've been tempted to buy the Babolat Tour Duralast string, but I might just wait for the Pro Hurricane Tour. Mr. Federer...where in Canada can you get it???

    How is it supposed to be different from regular Pro Hurricanes?

    Someone mentioned before (Rafa's Tech), Nadal uses a string called Duralast. It's a 135 and only available in Europe.

    I've used Pro Hurricane +, it reminds me of monogut, all the way down to the smell when you cut it out.

    If you want to buy in Canada, Try tennis*on.com (the * is the letter z). But that stuff is pretty expensive, more than Alu Power!

    Test hurricane tour

    I have tested the new hurricane tour in 1.25 mm, it is yellow and have a textured surface. I use it together with exel crosses in my Prince O3 white, it is a very nice combination.

    Compared with original pro hurricane it has a little more power and feels slightly softer but still firm. The string is very spinfriendly.

    In Sweden the string was released about 3 weeks ago.

    They are octagonal, yellow and I tried some today. It was just in the mains, with tonic in the X's. You can barely notice the strange shape. I don't even like polyester, even the high-end sutff, but this hybrid felt great to me (probably 'cause of the gut). I think Hurr.Tour comes out in the US really soon. I wonder if it will feel good for a couple of weeks, like the multifilament I currently use.

    EDIT: Not today. It was yesterday -- I happened to be there when the rep came by avec demos.

    Tour on X's and M's

    Any problems with just trying to string the mains and crosses with the Tour? I've never actually tried hybrid before. Would it make a huge difference (sorry for the rook question)?
