    Hello Galdust,

    we sure will! But as of today we have no confirmed date of delivery.
    We will keep you updated here.

    thanks,

    Sorry to highjack, but I'm so relieved about this. I like PPA (renamed into PPC for the new line) and well, it doesn't last forever, so I didn't want to struggle to find that string.

    Well it would be hard because I don't seem to find a multi string that's really comparable. PPA just seems to have no real weaknesses for a multi string since it's not really fragile, has some spin (good on slices), little pocketing, works really well at lower tensions since it's low powered (in the high 40's lbs for example) and has a really low price tag, around 7-8€. And since it's a multi, I can leave it in my frame and not worry too much about tension maintenance... or the health of my arm.
    RIP Control has more spin but more ball pocketing and lower tension maintenance. Same for Dunlop Hexy Fiber, which is a fine string (and moves a lot), but also has much more pocketing and a really muted feel. Premier Power (or known as Premier LT for the moment) is great, but the price tag is almost twice the one of PPA, and being a student I can't really afford strings that have an high price tag or that I have to restring much more frequently.

    I still have some leftovers in the closet so I'm not in an hurry yet. If Prince strings comes in Europe around late November or December I'll be more than happy. Unless I start breaking on shanks. :)
