Hi guys. So here's my next string review. This time, I'll be talking about the (already mentioned) Pacific ATP Power Hybrid. This is a prepackaged hybrid combination offered by Pacific, consisting of a half-set of their Power Line solid core synthetic gut in 16L gauge, and their Poly Force (I think it's the Original) monofilament polyester in 17 gauge. At $10.95 a job, this combination needed to impress me, as I'm frugal at heart . So here's how it played. ----- Stringing ----- Well, not quite. I'll start with how it was to string it up. I went with the Power Line synthetic in the mains, and the Poly Force in the crosses, at 50/48 lbs of tension. There's supposed to be some sort of "exclusive pre-stretch system" to increase tension maintenance. In any case, I went ahead and pre-stretched it myself anyway before I strung it up. The synthetic was pretty easy to string up, while the poly was a little harder than I'm used to. Then again, I am a tyro stringer at best, so I took it slowly and carefully. ----- Initial Impressions ----- My first thoughts were- wow. Very crisp feeling. Dwell time seems high. Ball pocketing felt really good. The string bed felt very soft, with a good amount of control and stiffness added from the poly. Spin was accessible. Volleys were my favorite shot; the strings cupped the ball. Drop volleys refused to come back up, while putaway volleys were placed close to the line with confidence. Ground strokes were solid. Serving had a lot of bite. My kick serve was landing short in the box before I adjusted. I had to aim my slice serves at the left net post of the adjacent court to get them in the court. More to follow as I play with the strings more.
