    strung my APDGT with Kirschbaum Pro Line X 17, I 'm a baseliner who has high swing speed but I still feel like this string is dead at 55 lbs. Feel like 100% of the power is coming from my swing speed compared to RPM team, which was my last string. Anyone know a more powerful, lively poly I could use thats in the same, cheaper price range?

    To me weisscannon scorpion is a powerful co-poly. Tourbite is lively.

    Pro Line X is pre-stretched by Kirschbaum. You could try it at 3 to 5 lbs. lower. TW describes it as a control string as well = low power.

    As it loses tension over time will it become a little more lively?

    I used pro line X in the pat and found it to be a lively string. At the time i had it in a Vantage bast core 30 at 45 lbs

    Pro Line X is one of the longer lasting strings. I get 9-10 hours from it, instead of 4-6 like the others.

    Try it at 50lbs, then see what you think.

    As pro line x loses a little tension it becomes a lot more lively.

    Good to hear, I'm not really a string breaker, but during high school season, Babolat string was just too expensive to keep buying.
