Tension used for playtest: 54lb main, 52lb crosses.
Regular string set up: Kirschbaum ProLine II at 54 lb. Also use Luxilon M2Pro
Racquet brand and model used for test: Head Microgel Extreme MP
Power of test string: About the same as Pro Line II. Good power for a poly.
Feel: Not bad for a poly. Good feel at the net as well.
Spin: Good spin provided good technique is used. Much better than the Gamma test string. About equivalent to P II and Lux M2Pro
Comfort: Excellent. I used to have TE and shoulder problems. None with this string.
Durability: I am not a string breaker but it is equivalent to ProLine II. Good durability
Playability Duration: Very good. Have used for 6 hours and there doesn't appear to be any significant drop off.
Control: Excellent as per most poly strings. I can swing out without fear.
Compare to the string you use most often: I use Kirschbaum ProLine II. This string is very similar. Similar feel, great control. Good feel.
Tension recommendations I would recommend less than 55 lb on a 100 sq inch racket.
Summary: List 1 or 2 primary likes and dislikes.
Likes: Control, power, and feel (in that order).
Dislikes: None really.
I definitely would buy this string to use if it was cheaper than Pro Line II
Thanks for TW for allowing me to participate in this string test!
Update: Played some doubles over the weekend with it. Still great playability. I now think that I should have strung maybe a pound or two looser(around 50). Still everything I said above is true.
