    I remember having a little discussion on this string no longer than a week ago.

    Run a search and you should be able to find the thread. (Sorry I can't help you since I have never used this string before).

    Full Job for me. I actually enjoyed it. Tension loss was (as usual for zyex) pretty dramatic at first, but it held decently after that point. Power was good, a little on the high side for my tastes, but the response was relatively crisp. Spin production was about average compared to polys and other spin friendly strings. I thought touch was decent, but nothing to write home about, and durability was pretty crappy. The klipper zyex notches quickly and pops pretty quick. I hit with Dynamite (Ashaway's zyex) a short while after and I couldn't even notch the stuff before the tension loss got to me. I'm typically a string cutter-outer, but the Klipper Zyex broke just about when I'd want to cut it out, anyways.

    Overall, I have a positive view of this string.

    I really love the 17g version. It lasted quite well for me for a 17g string. Good feel power and tension maintenance. I think I got around 13-14 hours out of it. If it was cheaper I'd probably use it a lot.
