    Hey, all.
    I've been using Wilson Reaction 17 in my LM Radical MP for a couple years and it really works for me. I've tried Babolat Addiction and a couple random hybrid setups but keep coming back to Reaction 17. Now that it's discontinued, any ideas on a very similar string I could use? Thanks

    Maybe not similar - but a good solid Multi for the buck - Tecnifibre Multifeel.

    Pretty crisp feel and very good tension maintenance - just like the Reaction string had.

    I switched to Forten Nylon 16 with no problems after being an avid reaction 17 user.

    you should try it out. very good value string.

    Sorry, but I can't agree with this recommendation. I found TF Multifeel to be much less crisp than Reaction -- in fact, I wouldn't even call it crisp. Very muted response, ime.

    There are a few sets of Reaction 17 still available on the bay. Might get you through a few months?

    I'd want to say Yonex's Tour Super 850, then.

    Yeah - I found a couple sites that have enough where I can stock up. I guess I'm thinking I'll buy a few sets of Reaction and keep one Radical strung with it and the other trying out some of these recommendations. Thanks for all the feedback. Keep them coming!

    OKidoki :oops: :oops:

    Point taken - I only played with it 3 times each, because I tend to use the more expensive strings, so I probably should have just put a lid on my mouth :-?

    Pretty much the exact same string

    I too am going through Reaction withdrawl. I have started to gravatate toward Technifibre strings for some reason. The most comparable string I have found is Technifibre NRG2 but I have to string 2lbs heavier to get the same feel.
