    Hi,

    I see this string is now listed @ $5.99 a set and the 16 is no longer listed. Is this string going away? Anyone know? It was a great string at $7.99... $5.99 seems like a steal. Thanks for anyone in the know..

    According to a competitor's website, the Max Comfort has been renamed the Synthetic Comfort. If true, TW is just getting rid of old stock with different packaging. I'm sure, somehow, it's "new and improved".

    Whoops! I believe that's supposed to be "Comfort Synthetic". Pardon my dyslexic ruminations at this hour.

    I did hit with the Max Comfort once in a demo. Decent string as I recall. I may just have to pick some up at that price.

    Ditto, great heads up!


    Dunlop is doing all sorts of funky things with their string names. The old Max Touch is now x-life hybrid too!
