    No, here in Germany it's an old poly. It's very very stiff.
    I don't if you can buy it in the US.
    Does anyone know?

    No, Nadal uses Tour Duralast, that's sure.
    I've never hit with it, but i will soon.

    Is the Tour Duralast string "playing characteristics' similar to the ashaway dynamite 17g string (at low tension approx. 50lbs tension)?

    It's a pain in the arse to string with - it's so stiff it's like chicken wire, I used to string a few Pure Drives with it for a colleague of mine, 65lbs with that stuff was like hitting with a 2x4 for me!!
