    I LOVED it. I was suprised since it is 15L. I just ordered another set from TW today. I usually use Prince Tour 17g. I will hit with it a few more times, and see if it takes the place of Prince Tour, as of now it is tied.
    Anyone else have any experiences with it.

    Did the string generate the some extra spin like it claims to do?

    I wouldn't get too used to it. Luxilon discontinued it--that is unless they have decided to bring it back.

    i could always stockpile it for a while I suppose Steve, but thank you.
    I have an extreme western, so I always get spin, but it did seem like I was getting a little more spin.
    It felt very crisp, I honestly was almost shocked that I like it considering the gauge.
    Not sure what to compare it to, perhaps a crisper, less soft version of alu power, though I dont know if it neccessarily had less power. Ill play with it again tonight and post my thoughts in the next few days.
