    Yes please update this tread if u want!

    Are you going to play with the string until it breaks? Since I expect the 1.25 mm version to be almost as durable as the 1.30 mm, I think u should be able to get at least 25 hours out of it.

    Thanks in advance and have fun with this fine string!!

    Can anyone tell me if the durability of the Yonex PTS 16L is the same as the PTP 16 L?

    just played with poly tour spin, liking it very much, slightly stiff but still pleasant unlike the ptp- couldn't get used to the muted feeling,

    the pts jus lands in, with good pop

    I'm going to test it soon. What tension did u use and which rakcet? Do you think it should be strung lower than the PTP because it's a underpowered string?

    I use a head prestige mid - my signature
    When I used the ptp I had 48/52, but as the PTS was describe to me as stiffer (stiffer strings for me-I like 1 tension for mains/cross) I used 52lbs-PTS.

    on stringsforum the ptp is considerably more powerful than PTS, as I've used two different tensions - I can't say.

    Ive only used the PTS for 1hr - most likely gonna play 2mrow

    Did u have problems creating power on 52 lbs?

    I'm also very curious to its durability compared to the PTP, so pls let me know when you have played enough hours with the string to judge it in that department as well.

    Yesterday was too much much wind, coming from 12o'clock to 6- around 14mph winds,
    I had no problem creating power from the string, my strokes are flat - but i dont think im a good player. Im the type of person who keeps strings in my racket 24-40max hours, as i generally only play 1-2 a week

    anyone use this in a hybrid as a cross with gut mains? Currently use co-focus, but always interested in learning about something that may be better. My one issue with co-focus is that over time the control suffers a bit when trying to flatten out the ball. Stays real strong for topspin, but just a little wild as it ages when trying to tee one up through the court.

    THanks.

    I had it as a cross but wasn't impressed with the performance. My biggest issue was that it felt muted and didn't really complement VS mains.
