    Has anyone here played with this string? There's good ratings here; http://stringforum.net/strings.php?sdnr=5069. I'm intriqued and have called the company directly and looking to buy a reel but would like some TT members to comments prior to doing so. Thanks!

    I second that. Doesn't look like it's easy to get. Hope someone comes forward with experience with these.

    Funny, I am interested in this string as well. Euro Co., have to import, did not see any on the bay when I looked. If you get some we could do a trade if you're up, we've traded before oOlun.

    The Next String Combination

    I really like TB, but looking at other combos.

    Has anyone played with the following:

    WC Black Edge
    Cyclone Tour
    Discho Iontec Salmon
    Dyrex Back Edge

    I have heard great things on all 4 of these strings.

    You can call dyreex directly by their contact on dyreex.com. Ive contacted them in the past and got through easily. They are in France but have a toll free number. At the time a reel of black edge was $155 shipped. I disnt proceed because I couldnt justify spending that much on a reel where i believe the reviews on stringforum.net are hyped up. I could be wrong, but I also have a lot of strings to go through prior to any new string purchase.

    ok got dyreex 55 lbs mains klip legend ng 17 58 lbs. Taking string off from the reel was very soft and smooth easy to string. After stringing I bounced the ball to check for feel and it felt very lively and crisp. I did couple of volley against the wall and wow it felt great. Will give a review tonight.

    Yes I played with yonex pro poly the black one. I personally didnt like yonex it feel dull and boring. Dyreex by the other hand is crispy feeling. It sounds and feels stiff but feels soft.

    best poly out there

    Ok hit with it today and it was great. The sound of the strings sound so good coming off the racquet. Strings are super soft, and friendly on the arm. The feeling of the strings is one of a kind. Has power level of lux alu but not that dull metallic feeling. RPM feels dull compared to these strings to. Yonex the same dull. The feel of dyreex is super. The spin is the superb. As I posted my string collection. I like these strings best overall. All of you poly players these strings is a must try. The hype is real!!

    hey jisop,

    I'm excited about this string from your and stringforum.net reviews. I ordered a reel of dyreex black edge 1.25 too. They gave me a tracking number and a link but it cannot locate it. Do you know how to track it? How long did it take to get yours? I ordered on 9-12-13.

    Jisop or TenFanLa - Since both of you order a reel, would either one of you consider selling me 40 feet of string? E-mail my user id if you are interested in selling me a set.

    Weiss cannon black five edge feels like msv focus hex to me dull and boring. Dyreex is more exciting, and has more feel. The pop the strings make feels great. More spin, comfort, feel, all of the above.

    I would be curious if any one has tried Cyclone Tour and can compare it against Dyreex.

    So far, out of all the polys out there, I find Cyclone Tour to offer the best balance of spin, decent power, and a soft feeling poly.

    Ordering this Dyreex string is hard to do as the website is
    now under construction.
    What is the toll free number as no reply from email contact?

    I am interested in trying the Cyclone Tour.
    Is it better as a full bed or Hybrid with something?

    Finally got my Dyreex Black Edge 1.25mm reel

    Came in the mail after 2 weeks. Strung it up on my Microgel Radical Pro 45/50 Dyreex/Discho Microfibre 16g. Hopefully hit with it tomorrow. String has nice coating but you can definitely feel the edges like Cyclone. Feels pretty plush for a poly. When stringing it stretches a little like RPM/Cyclone.

    According to my 6 ft, blonde French model girlfriend, Dyreex means 2 weeks in French. Not sure if it means their poly lasts for 2 weeks or it takes 2 weeks to get to you.

    1st test: Dyreex/multi hybrid

    Felt awful compared to my normal babolat gut/ltec 4s setup. Gut/4s setup is 1 year old. Didn't play tennis for 1 whole year. Picked up the racket and still feels great. Great pop, spin, comfort but can be a little too powerful in hot weather.

    Dyreex/multifibre had little spin, pop, ball movement comparatively. The strings moved all over the place like a full bed multi. Not easy on the arm either. Felt stiff. Part of it could be I'm used to sweet gut/poly and another part is my tennis muscles have atrophied from not playing for a year.

    Next test, full bed Dyreex. If it doesn't perform, I will have a 600 ft reel for sale.

    P.S. To be fair to Dyreex, I've never found poly/multi to play as well as full poly or gut/poly so this hybrid test may not mean much.

    I think we are on the same page when it comes to L-tec 4S as the best cross to use with natural gut mains.

    2nd test: Full bed Dyreex Black Edge (DBE)

    This time 45/45 full bed DBE on MG Rad Pro...

    WOW! What a difference! Full bed DBE snaps back nicely like a poly should. Wicked spin, check. Great control, check. Great feel for a poly, check. Good comfort for a poly, check. Then...something I didn't expect. How you say in American....ah..pocketing, wee...eh..explosive, yes.

    Due to work I only got to play 1 hr of doubles but DBE gives me BHBR, Cyclone, ALU type of spin, better feel, more comfort and more explosiveness. It kind of feels/sounds like the string's gears are grinding up the ball for spin and then boom, shoots it out with the type of power rarely seen in polys.

    Still gut/poly gives easier power, better feel and comfort esp. in cooler conditions but if you can generate the racket head speed and full bed of rpm, cyclone doesn't bother your arm, DBE is a must try. Full bed DBE gives me precision and control that only a full bed poly could, without sacrificing much power.

    I can see a 4.5, 5.0+ generate some sick, controlled spin and pace with these strings. You can see the opponents getting pushed back, flustered when the ball bounces high up to their backhands.

    It's only 1 outing so can't get too carried away but I've never had so much free (yet controlled) power from a poly with spin, control, feel and relative comfort. I was serving some flat serve bombs (these strings give off a boom, cannon like sound) and sick kickers.

    DBE is for someone who is truly a poly player, advanced with high racket head speed. You can put the ball anywhere on the court with pace and tell your opponent, "I can make you run wherever I want you to."

    Thats what I said earlier, but you explained it alot better than me, it does make a boom sound when you connect with the ball.

    3rd test with DBE

    Played 3.5 hours of singles. It's been a while since I've played full poly but I can't recall getting this much BOOM in power and sound. It's like BHBR in terms of power and spin but with much better control. The pocketing is unbelievable for a poly. It's quite comfortable for a poly.

    The weather is getting cooler at night and my arm loves babolat gut / ltec 4s. So comfortable, so much free power and spin. Only downside is it's not as stable as a full bed DBE. But my arm health comes first, so going with higher tension gut/poly in the fall/winter months.

    If you are a full bed poly player, you must at least try this DBE string. It's unlike any poly I've tried before. I'm putting it down as 2013 String of the Year - Poly.

    It's plush and comfortable for a poly but still a poly. You won't mistake it for gut or multi.

    1. BDE / multi = fail
    2. full BDE = great
    3. gut / BDE = ?

    My Tonic 15L/ltec 4s was about to snap so I was going to string it up with the same setup at 55/50 but I saw BDE and I thought I'd give it a shot as a cross since I love gut/poly (specifically gut/4s) so much. I'm hoping that higher tension will make it more stable in hot weather and against hard shots. Also 4s is pretty stiff so hoping BDE will be a little easier on the arm as a cross. Hope to play Mon night...

    ok, 1 more question is that how powerful is it, as on stringforum - its very high on the power stat,
    is it as powerful as prince beast - i thought that for a poly was very powerful.

    Just when i get it, i play with a prestige mid - in this racket for me going anything 55+ is really unforgiving and stiff & going into high 40's becomes to powerful, so generally i string full bed poly between 50-53lbs,
    dont wanna waste a set, really looking forward to this.

    thanks

    Never tried Beast but I would rank it up there with BHBR, Polystar Energy in power. But the BIG difference is control which is much better with BDE than with the other 2 powerful polys. It's like Cyclone, BHBR spin and power with ALU, Ltec type of control.

    If my arm could handle full poly in the cold, I'd be using full bed BDE all the time. I used 45/45 full bed in my MG Rad Pro. No way I could do that with BHBR or PS Energy and still swing away freely. I think you should try 50-52. You should get great pop (for a poly) with lots of spin and control.

    Ok, ive never played with cyclone or energy, have played with bhbr - wasnt that impressed - but i don't have the swing path/technique for pure topspin shots, im more deep flat hitter.
    Currently have tour bite at 52lbs - very good string, but its really giving me shoulder/ especially elbow problems.

    On stringforum black edge is described as soft - i really like the softer string.

    1 last question, is have you ever played with poly tour spin - if so how does it compare in tension maintenance
