Dunlop Ice?
 
What do you guys know about this string?:confused: It looks cool but does it perform well too? I'm used to strings like TB or PHT so would this be a good string to try out?

Not much feedback on this string yet. It's pretty new.
Give it a whirl and let us know.

db10s 11-04-2012 05:22 AM

I'll grab a set and try it out.

Had a feeling that was the case. Nothing solves that problem like a little personal experience so i'll give it a try. Luckily i've yet to meet a poly i don't like.:lol:

I am playing with it right now... 8hours playing and still feels like new, but now strings started to move, and are about to break.
Tension drop wasn't bad after 8hours, and it gives a lot of spin, very close to AluPower-Rough, but with more grab/spin on the ball.
Racket: Customized Wilson PS-BLX 6.1 95-16x19, strung @ 19/17kilos.
Very very good string, with a good price.

Awesome. I'll be using it as a main with Solinco Revolution crosses at 54/50 (is that weird?:lol:) in my tour Diablo mid thats coming on friday. so thats tensions 42/37 lbs right?.

db10s 11-04-2012 09:02 AM

What about the power level?

Torres 11-04-2012 09:50 AM

The price is extraordinary. $65 for a 200m reel?

Definitely worth trying.

The Dunlop Juice also sounds interesting though it seems that no one has tried it even though its been out for some time.

If you have already used AluPower-Rough, you will notice almost the same "power", but with more spin/grab, so your ball will land a little shorter at the same tension, so just drop 1 or 2 kilos in tension.
I use to play with Head ATP Tour balls, and in 1~1.5 hours playing with this string, the balls are "bald".

I would say this is until now, the best string for spin that I have used, among many many co-polys.
As for comfort, I use co-polys at a low tension, from 21kilos to 17kilos, according to temperature and racket/pattern.

db10s 11-04-2012 03:57 PM

Thanks... I'm ordering some now...

Actually i'll be holding off on that:oops:. i had a hit earlier with a friends racket. One of the few people i know over here who even know about gut/poly and now i'm hooked:twisted:. so i've decided to save the Ice for later and replace it with Babolat VS Natural ThermoGut 16 Touch Black in the mains at 52/49. I'll Probably try Ice in my redondo mid once the strings break as they are starting to fray.:)

I just ordered a set of the 17. I loved the juice on serves but had a little too much pop on groundstrokes.

What does TT recommend for tension? I normally play with Black Widow at 56.

I honestly have no idea. BW is a super super soft poly, (If not the softest one there is) so I would recommend a few lbs down to account that Ice might be a bit stiffer. Maybe 54lbs?

Thanks, that's what I was thinking.

Black Widow it's a very soft copoly string.

Dunlop ICE it's more stiff/crisp than BW, just like AluPower-Rough.
I would drop from 56 to 50, or 48. Notice that I am using it @38/36 :)

I have played Juice 17 and really liked it, held tension well, just moved too much on the stringbed for my liking....maybe it needed a few hours to get settled in.
