Spent the weekend testing several setups and finally finished a few hours hitting with this string.

Full set or hybrid


Hybrid

Tension used for playtest

52 lbs

Regular string set up

VS Mains with Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution(PLE)

Racquet brand and model used for test

Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT

Power of test string

Much lower than PLE

Feel

I thought the string was average. This is softer than Alu Power but not as crisp.

Spin

Spin was moderate.

Comfort

A more comfortable string than Alu Power.

Durability

I have about 4 hours on it and so far doesn't feel dead like Alu Power.

Tension maintenance (how long before it became too loose or unplayable)

I noticed a slight tension drop but still playable. Will see if this holds up to the 10 to 15 hour mark.

Control (predictable trajectory? performance on different strokes and swing speeds?)

Due to this being a low powered string, control is definitely a plus with this string.

Compare to the string you use most often


Compared to PLE, this string is not as good in all categories except it has more control due to it being a lower powered string.

Tension recommendations (after hitting it, would you recommend a different tension? Why?)

I would go lower to try to increase the power maybe around 48lbs.

Summary: List 1 or 2 primary likes and dislikes.

likes- control

dislikes- underpowered

I had high hopes that this string would be the replacement for Alu Power and address the only issue with Alu which is durability but this is a totally different string.

Thanks TW for the string and the shirt!
