    I've seen many threads commenting on Solinco Tour Bite and Revolution but nothing on Outlast. There is also no customer feedback on Outlast.

    Has anyone used it? And what is the string similar to or what are your thoughts on it.

    Currently have it in my apdc+ at 56lbs, full bed. Fantastic string! Soft but crisp at the same time if that makes sense. Really a control string...been playing for 8hrs with it and tension is holding really well. Usually use proline 2 which in my opinion is a bit softer but less bite on the ball. Switching to this string, at 8$ well worth a try...if you don't mind the red.

    Yes, finally someone is talking about it. Outlast is a great string IMO. It feels kind of like Red Code, or Pro Hurricane. Pretty crisp. This is a string though that plays very differently at different tensions. I really enjoyed a hybrid with Vanquish strung in the high 60s. A lot of control and good spin, it was a little low powered that high though. When I went mid-low 50s I felt the ball fly a little bit. I would say string it at around 60 and adjust from there.

    Sounds cool I have been wondering about this string. BTW Babolat15 carpe diem literally means "pluck the day"

    I've been trying outlast on the 200 tour and PST. The tension hold is fantastic! The first time I used it I got two practices and a full tournament on one string job. I plan to buy a reel next month.

    Sounds sweet. I need a string that holds good tension!!!

    Do you have something that measures your tension?.. or are you just going by feeling..
