Default Volkl V-Twist will only twist your wallet!

OK, here is my review in the TW format of the Volkl V-Twist 16.

Stringing was a little more difficult than normal, the string had a tendency to try and kink from coil memory. It seemed like it would be able to create some spin on court testing proved that wrong.

Tension it is strung: 54 pounds on a lockout machine full bed
Your regular string set up: Discho Microfibre 16 @ 54 pounds on a lockout
String pattern of your racquet: 16 x 18
Power (or lack there of): Medium powered multi
Feel: Great feel
Tension maintenance: Seemed to hold the entire 2 hours until breakage
Price: $14/set
Overall comments and feedback: See below

General: This review will be short. When a $14 string breaks in 2 hours I say quite simply "It sucks".

Serve/Return of Serve: Serves lacked punch last night. Returns were average.

Strokes: Spin was a chore to create.

Volleys: It feels pretty solid on volleys.

Touch shots: It is very good for drop shots and drop volleys.

Softness: About average.

Tension: If I knew the string would last, I'd say go up a few pounds in tension.

Durability: Terrible. Terrible. Terrible.

Movement: String movement is average for a multi meaning it moves a decent amount.

Conclusion: This is a below average multi string with a premium price and **** poor durability. Stay Away!
