    Hey guys. Have any of you hit with the new Wilson OPTIMUS string that's coming out in 2014? I just received a sample and was wondering what the initial feelings are regarding this string.

    I'm thinking I'll eventually hybrid with Pacific PRIME Gut. I'm hoping it will TRANSFORM my game.

    That's a great combo.

    It might work even better in a Volkl C10 or any racquet with a bumble bee paint job.

    I didn't knew about this string at all. Can you tell us what it is basically?

    Nice work. I like that. Should be the ultimate hybrid.

    Now we just need a Megatron hybrid.

    Looks like some kind of multi. The outer wrap looks braided/woven...some kind of texture. It has an iridescent finish.

    Just got a sample set today. Definitely a funky iridescent finish. It is also supposedly available in white. It's being touted as a multi that is focused on tension maintenance.

    I love fall when the prototypes start arriving.

    I got mine as a thank you gift for work I did for a retailer. Decided to mess around since I have a drawer full of prototype and test string right now. Strung it up as a hybrid with 4G rough and am going to hit with it for the first time tonight.

    Saw the optimus string at a local tennis proshop. The guy told me it is supposed to be super soft string and the cost would be around $20 a set. I don't think it's worth it but that's just me.
