    I love the stuff. Excellent durability and feel. Using it in Prestige mids @ 52 lbs. Strings do move a lot. Would probably knock up to 55 lbs. next time. Normally do 57-59 lbs. on this racket with other string.

    Dynamite

    I've always like Ashaway Dynamite strings. The Zyex is so responsive. I also like to bump the tension up 3-5 lbs., it seems to play better, although they recommend dropping the tension 10%. I now use Dynamite strings as a hybrid with a multifilament cross string. This seems to last longer and costs less but plays very well.

    What did you guys think of how Dynamite breaks in? I loved the durability and tension maintenance of this string, and I loved the feel the first time out... but I really disliked the feel after the string broke in. It went from soft and responsive to "crispy" and kind of dead. Did I get a bum set? (Strung 20% lower than usual; tension/power level seemed right.)
