Suprisingly Pleasant Experience All-Around Gauge 17 Tension used for playtest 60 mains / 46 crosses, both pre-stretched. Pre-stretched by leaning on one end of 20-ft segment (with about 80 lbs of force) until the relaxed length stopped noticeable growing. I added about 7” to the relaxed length of the 20-ft segment, more stretch than most poly. Regular string set up Ashaway Kevlar 18g / Monogut ZX 16g, 66 / 46. Racquet brand and model used for test Prince EXO3 Graphite Mid, Shortened to 26-3/4”, leaded to 367 SW, 13.6 oz., 12.55”. Playing Level: 5.0 (as long as I practice at least twice a week) Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by this string. I normally dislike full beds of round poly, but this string seemed to really work well with the high tension differential to negate all of the undesirable qualities that I normally associate with round poly. Power of test string Seemed slightly high for a poly. Nothing unusual. Feel Surprising comfy given the control I was able to get, was softer feel than my normal setup. I normally associate soft feel and longer dwell time with loss of control, but somehow this string seem to work when strung at the high differential. Spin Spin was better than a typical round poly strung normally, but I think much of that had to do with the 14-lb tension differential. The string has surface that is quite slippery and on the firmer side for a poly, which I believe helped with spin. Comfort As I said already, this was surprisingly comfy. No issues here. Durability There is a little bit of denting, but no signs of breakage after about 4 hours of play. I will update if this changes. Playability Duration (share thoughts on if/how the playability changed over time) I haven’t noticed any loss in tension after 4 hours of play. The string seems to hold well after a thorough pre-stretch. Based on how much it elongated in pre-stretch, I would think the tension maintenance would not be very good if not pre-stretched. Will update if this changes. Control (predictable trajectory? performance on different strokes and swing speeds?) I seemed to be able to control all of my shots quite well with this setup. It was better than any other full poly setup I have tried, but then again, this is the first time I have strung full poly with such a high differential. I liked it for spin shots and flat shots alike. Even touch shots. Compare to the string you use most often I still like my current Kevlar/ZX setup better (which I’m using on my Blade). My Kevlar/ZX is a little crisper and gives a bit more accuracy, and also a bit more spin. Nevertheless, I will be playing a tournament for the first time in a while this weekend, and I feel confident enough in the EXO Graphite with Ripspin to use it as one of my official backup racquets to my Blade. Tension recommendations (after hitting it, would you recommend a different tension? Why?) I think I nailed the right tension. I wouldn’t change a thing.
