    I just switched to the Pro Line, and I simply love it. And I was just curious if any pros out on the tour at the moment that use it, if not, pros that use Kirschbaum strings?

    I believe Gaudio moved to Toalson strings a couple of years ago.

    I don't think that Pro-lines 1 and II are "pro" strings - too soft and forgiving, which is why I use pro-line II on all of my racquets.

    I think he was sponsored and had the stencil by Toalson but never used the string.

    One of our players is using touch Turbo 1.25. A couple of Rice's guys were using Kirschbaum string last year. You see it occasionally in college tennis.

    Iowa University uses them--I think around half their team has Spiky Shark 1.25.

    its a great string though, but mainly for topspin players, there isn't much feel w/kirsch strings but u get massive spin, imo

    On tour, Canas, Schnyder, Hrbaty, Stefano Galvani, and Ashley Fisher use Kirschbaum. Gaudio used to use Kirschbaum but now he appears to be using Luxilon(?). Last year's French Open looked like he was rockin BB original and now it seems to be more like alu-power but I dont know for sure.

    Kirschbaum is pretty big in the junior/itf circuit. Tiago Fernandes who just made the quarters of the US Open junior uses pro line 2 and Yana Buchina (US Open finalist) uses either P2 or touch turbo.
