Best Solinco Poly in a full bed
 
Which is your favorite SOlinco string in a full bed -- and explain (please).

Not tried Revolution or Outlast, Barb Wire feels like plastic and Tour Bite is IMO a top 3 spin string. Fabulous, albeit lacking in feel.

Seems like people very hot and cold on barb wire, heard it has no tension maintenance though

Only have experience with Tour Bite 17, but I have yet to find a better string for me...Dunlop Black Widow 17 comes close though.

Would you say they are similar? I found that Black Widow has that plasticy feel that pvaudio mentioned with barb wire, which I don't really like.

Tour bite running away with it, I voted for outlast (never tried tour bite)

Tour Bite 18 @ 23kg

Try Tour Bite mains w/ Iontec Hexa 1.20 crosses. i stumbled onto this setup and it's awesome. Great spin, control and feel.

I have a new batch of TB coming in, so I can make a better comparison. Black Widow has this slight difference in feel...not as crisp, if I recall. But it goes away after maybe 10 minutes of hitting, then it's all good.

looks like tour bite blows barb wire out of the water

Tour Bite is a beastly string. It's one of the best spin hitting strings ever IMHO.

Tour Bite 17 in my prestige was very powerful. Great spin and effortless winners! Bit stiffer than Alu power but similar in other aspects.

Gus88 12-11-2012 09:33 AM

cant wait for the "butter" string. SOFT in a 16 and 17 gauge. coming very soon.
-tour bite

Tour Bite by far in every category

hebrewhammer 12-11-2012 12:50 PM

I'm going with Revolution, as it has a very soft feel like outlast, yet plenty of spin. Great all around string

MarinaHighTennis 12-11-2012 02:11 PM

@JDMasFCK
nope Solinco Outlast all the way! Great feel, spin, pop, etc. Probably not as crisp as Tour Bite but the feel is much better and less stiff. Durability it wins too

In these vids im using Solinco Outlast full bed and I do alright with them haha

Thanks for the input all, looks like barb wire is the loser

Agreed. I play with full bed Solinco TB 16g in a Tecnifibre TFight 325 racquet. Spin & control is amazing! Plus these strings have great durability and solid tension maintenance.

I coach at a Solinco-sponsored academy. For our players, it is all Barb Wire and Tour Bite, in that order.

Definitely! For some reason I go through TB pretty fast, as it wears down quickly for me. Everything else is top notch though.
