    had interest in it early on, but then found out that the kevlar strings come only in hybrid packages or in reels, there4 have decided to pass, to boycott it

    i highly applaud manufacturers like Babolat, in which certain strings of theirs come in half sets. i think this is the way to go. it would encourage more string setup experiments, in turn would be good for the game of tennis, and the string industry as well

    :rolleyes, please step off the soap box.

    a pack is only about $9 friggin'. if you had interest in it, i don't think this cost would break your bank.

    back to the OP, i've used it and really like the bite on the ball, especially after a slight tension loss. i strung it up at 55# M and 60# X. i enjoyed the thin 18g mains and they last a long time.

    if i am gonna use it, i'll go full kevlar, or combine the kevlar with other cross string. what use is the other half set of cross string it provides for me?

    i dont like the way they do thing, and i've every right not to be supportive

    for other posters in this board who asked about POSG, Gosen OG Sheep Micro, etc, u go tell them to just go ahead and purchase them, as the cost wouldnt break their bank anyway

    for those who ask about vibration dampener you give them the same reply as well

    It was one of the first Kevlars on the market, and I keep a mini reel ( 360 ft) for the players I service. The crosses in the sets are soft, so for my major string breakers I use a more durabile cross.:cool:

    I use it and it's great. Seems to be about the same as Prince Problend , but at half the cost.

    You can't beat the durability of a Kevlar, and spin potential is very good. And you get a lot more predictable ball response than with poly hybrids. Kevlar strings soften up during the first few times that you play (the break-in period). Then they stay the same for a long, long, long, time.
