    It's very very soft for a multi. TOO soft.
    If you like a mushy feel, then Addiction is your string. There is very little feel, and the string has absolutely no crispness at all. Addiction gives you a soft, mushy, "dead" feeling string bed. IMO, Addiction is more of a power string than a control string. I had to string 2-4 lbs higher than my normal string since Addiction doesn't hold tension too well. As soon as Addiction loses tension, I have to cut out the string or else the ball flies everywhere.

    ^^^ What he said. Not much spin potential either. I tried it once and cut it out after about 10 hours.
