    I've used Topspin Plus twice in the 16g. It only lasted 2 sets both times. Maybe you'll have better luck with the 15g.

    I think this is not Topspin

    Topspin comes in two versions Duraflex which is more durable than the non d/f Plus
    The poster has an older string, note the sub 40 ft length, that won't last long for modern hitters. It would work as a cross string.

    Prince Spin Plus synthetic is a high performance string. It's textured finish gives you a rougher surface that will grab the ball for added topspin. All Prince strings have high durability(high tensile strength) and low elongation(low stretch factor) which is important to playability in Prince racquets.

    Because of its length 36',probably the 93 sq in racquet string--the mid not the oversize

    Yes they are,,an older string strung from 70- 80 lbs,,theres no new string I have heard of thats strung that high-like business as usual ? Anyone else have strings that are strung for beginners/intermediate at 70 - 76 lbs,,advanced players 74-80 lbs ?
    Those are the strings tensions recommended for those racquets listed with spin plus tennis strings.
