    Well I'm in a pinch. The Swedish Championship is drawing near and I'm out of strings. Hopefully the Multifeel strings are in stock and will arrive in time. Since it took 3 weeks last time, Im not so sure I want to risk it.


    So now I'm wondering, what strings are most similar to Multifeel?
    (Something that's sold in 200m reels and the same price range)

    Thanks in advance

    I too second the addiction. I prefer this over the attraction that they brought out.

    Thanks :)!

    Just one more question. The Addiction costs 800 sek (swedish money) and the Multifeel costs 1100sek. Is the multifeel worth the extra 35$ (660 feet reel)?

    Or should I switch to Addiction after the tournament?

    You could also look at Pro Supex Max Touch, a good multifiliment and a cost of 90.00 usd for a 660 ft reel.

    No, it's not; according to lab testing Multifeel holds tension slightly better due to its center core, and, yes, it's somewhat softer too. But Addiction performs better. At that price differential I would switch over.

    I would but unfortunately they dont sell them in Sweden :(.


    I just called three different online stores and none of them had multifeel in stock. They did however have Babolat Addiction so I ordered a reel =).
    Thanks for all the help!
