    Can anyone give me their feedback on Gamme Zo Verve 17g strings? From what I've read, they are very good strings with good pop and spin potential, but they're pricey at $17+ so I'd really appreciate more insight.

    Zo Verve = Devil Spin

    I use Zo Verve and Toa Devil Spin (both same model).
    I love this strings.

    Black and glay is more better for me.
    Red Gray model have little bit different ball hold feel,,, just my opinion.

    But,,,
    Yes, little bit expensive,,,
    Not good value by 200m reels too.

    Pls price down Gamma!!

    How is the tension maintenance and spin compared to others?

    I bought a Yonex 95D that came with the black/grey Toalson Rencon Devil Spin, which is essential identical to Verve. I'm not sure if it was the change in swingweight from RDS002T or the string, I was getting crazy spin and kick serves out of it. I also almost couldn't miss a backhand. Control and tension maintenace were also good for me. Power and touch were average.

    Toalson Devil Spin is available from European websites in 200m reels. A UK site is selling for GBP98.28 with free shipping. That's about USD170-180 I think, which is much better value than 110m of Verve for USD157

    tension i dont know because i snapped it in like 6hours but spin was superb! from teh first ball i could notice a difference right away. much more bite than other polys.

    to be honest though tension maintenance is overrated for poly. they are all about the same give or take. some go mushy others more crisp, but its not huge difference.

    Zo verve

    TOA/Toalson makes 90% of all Gamma strings hence the similarities.

    Ssssh! Quiet, or they will ban the shipping of TOA strings from the UK to the US!
    Perhaps Gamma does not have the clout of Babolat or Wilson, but let us not tempt fate.
    I'm not saying it's the same as ZoVerve(see the RSI playtest), but...

    A reel of Toalson Rencon Devil Spin is definitely on my Santa List.
    Oops, I meant Father Christmas. :)

    P.S It's actually around $113 + $37 shipping. (sssh! Say no more! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.)
