    I have 2 reels of this stuff and have never strung with it. Can someone give me input on this string? Is it stiff? Does it lose tension fast? Compare it to something else. Thanks in advance.

    it's outdated and outclassed by todays polys. yes it's stiff and it loses tension very quickly. but it is cheap.

    Dont use unless your arm and wrist are in perfect condition and you are under 25.

    It is stiff and loses tension quickly. Polystar Classic would be a better choice for a 1st generation poly; much more comfort.

    Classic 1st generation poly, meaning - it sucks. Stiff as hell, loses tension quickly, little playability and really, cheap is relative. It's what $3-$4. Ashaway monogut is about the same price and is 10x better and monogut isn't even great.

    I'd rather play with a full bed of kevlar in a woodie @ 65lbs than that stuff... and I'm 21...

    Tried using it about 3x and cut the string out within the first 20 balls of hitting each time. VERY stiff, tension goes bye-bye faster than TNT and Isospeed Baseline combined
