    Is this a Kevlar? I was having issues with breaking poly rather quickly, so the stringer at my club suggested I try a Kevlar hybrid. Wilson Hyperlast 15 is what he ended up giving me. I looked up the string on TW (here) & noticed that the mains are Technora Synthetic Gut, but it doesn't say anything about Kevlar.
    These strings definitely don't feel like a syn gut.

    Kevlar and Technora vary on a molecular level, but in application they are very similar and are essentially two different brand names from two different manufacturers.

    Anyone else care to comment on this string? I'm interested in the thin gauge (they make a 19), and have read a number of various threads on kevlar-type strings with varying accounts of arm-friendliness or lack thereof.

    What is the lowest tension you've used with a Kevlar/Technora/Aramid main string? It's super durable but do it's playing characteristics hold well/ok/poorly over the duration?
