    Hey, I was just wondering what you guys thought of this string. Does it really give alot of sping? How much more compared to a string like prince topspin? Also what are you charactaristics of this string.


    Thanks, Jay

    its pretty stiff, but breaks in easy. lots and LOTS of spin though. controllable power. pretty good IMO, but a tad pricy, as are all lux strings...

    I put this type of string on my wife's racquet at about 55 lbs. It felt really nice for her the first time out playing but the morning after, the string felt like it dropped in tension by 5 lbs or more.

    She did not like this at all and had me cut it out. It was probably one of the coolest looking string I have seen in a racquet in a long time.
