So comfort is relative to how much topspin you put on the ball...
Almost perfect for Spin score ,w0w, 97 out of 100 ! Thanks TW.
Is the comfort rating compared to all other strings or just polys?
Curious that after about 3 years of being on the market, this gets playtested as Luxilon launches its new flagship which costs to the cent the exact same amount. Also curious that this gets absurd marks in spin generation when one playtester remaked the closest thing he's ever played with is Polystar Energy, and he was coming from using Volkl Cyclone.
And this is just a rubbish theory:
What's wrong with that theory? A glancing strike will feel softer than a straight on strike. Right?
Agree with spin potential. but i felt that this string was not that comfortable. it did hurt my shoulder
No, just think about it for a second. As the first poster said, the comfort level is dependent on how much spin you put on the ball by that theory. If you hit a tennis ball properly, you are making solid contact regardless of whether you hit it flat or hit it heavy. There is no "glancing" strike when hitting a heavy topspin shot since it requires that you make solid contact with the string bed to be effective.
True. But I was thinking on a flat serve i feel more thud on the string than a kick serve.
Perhaps yes, but even then I don't see that being that relevant either. You're still hitting through a kick serve and most people don't talk about comfort in terms of serving. Even Rafa makes nearly flush perpendicular contact with the stringbed:
Well yeah. On a good ts fh your clubbing the ball too.
