    These are 2 polys that seem to be getting lots of positive reviews. Which one is better (in your opinion)?

    Fresh, they seem to be almost equally playable. Tour Bite is better because it remains lively for longer.

    I personally prefer the richer, more unique feel of TB.

    i have tried the 1.17 and the 1.24 and i prefer the 1.17; i find more spin, power and control. less durable (of course) but i prefer it. great string and i have just bought a reel and swaped over having tested alu rough, rpm blast, blackcode and all the big names and i tink tornado 1.17 is the best

    I use them both! My two favorite copolys! I have two APDC frames, one strung up with each (mains only, gosen micro sheep in crosses). All 17g. I found I couldn't get any control with either string in a full bed but as a hybrid they both shine for me. Tour Bite is my default frame, but the Tornado allows for a little flatter power hitting so if the matchup dictates, I'll use that one.

    I had 3 racquets with each, and TB held tension better (actual DT measurements, not feel). They were both good, but so far the only string I've tried that holds better is SPPP, and only by a tiny amount.
