    Anyone ever play this string? What are your thoughts?

    On the powerful side as polys go, felt like Silverstring but with less control and a bit less comfort. I believe I used a 1.28 or something like that.

    If you want a round poly, it's good. As I recall it's kind of good all around with no one quality sticking out. A little more pop than B5E.

    Yes it definitely has more power than most polys.


    B5E is a bit lower powered for sure.

    There's a slight break-in period as well, at least that's what I've noticed, then it plays really well. But yes, definitely a potent string.

    It is the string I carry all the time. Its power is above average poly. Nothing really stands out and every aspect is above average. One key trait of this poly is its direct response. You have the total control of where the ball lands. Valley and touch shots are two of my favorite shots with the string. One thing I notice is the different stage in its life span: First, great all around string for first 4 hours, then becomes somewhat more powerful, then drop down to a decent string, and then it is dead. I always purchase a reel and cut it out or break it around 10 to 12 hours

    To bring out the best of the string, you need to string at lower tension, somewhere between 47 -52 lbs.

    My experience pretty much exactly.

    It's a great string for someone who wants a very neutral string, one that isn't going to define how they play.

    Weird feel, too much power and not enough spin to bring it down. Really was the worst poly I've ever tried.
