WeissCANNON Turbotwist 1.18 / PerforMAXX WhisperTouch





Stringing: For all of these reviews with gut crosses, I'll just focus on the poly. The Turbotwist was actually the easiest to string up in the mains by far. It had little to no coil memory, and even though it was on a reel, that is still an issue for some strings (as I'll discuss later). Nonetheless, TT has an interesting greasy coating to it which I'm not sure about. I'm not sure if it's there to give more spin, or is just a byproduct of the manufacturing. Either way, it's annoying to have that grease on your hands when you're about to string up gut. I purposely used the coated gut with this string for that reason. All in all, an easy poly to string. Having played a fullbed (but at a high tension which ruined the string), I can tell you that it's not too difficult to weave in the crosses either. Strung 53/55, 10% machine prestretch on gut.
