Tension used for playtest: 48 lbs
Regular string set up: Volk Cyclone M & Prince SG X @ 48/55
Racquet brand and model used for test: Babolat PS Tour

Power of test string: Low-Medium power, takes more effort to drive the ball on ground stoke. 4.5/10

Feel: It was crisp and somewhat soft. At slightly off center contact there are some unusual vibrations on the string bed. 6/10

Spin: Average. The combination of low power and spin give this set-up an above average conrol. 5.5/10

Comfort: Good, even when played for long hours. 8/10

Durability: Good, string snap-back in place after 7hrs of play. 7.5/10

Playability Duration (share thoughts on if/how the playability changed over time): Very good. The string feels stay consistent for 9 hrs of play and slow gradual drop-off thereafter. 9/10

Tension stability: Very Good 8.5/10

Control (predictable trajectory? performance on different strokes and swing speeds?) Good, ground strokes, volleys and serve had good predictability and control. 8/10

Compare to string used most often Compared to Volk Cyclone M & Prince SG X @ 48/55, this string has more control and that’s it. Volk Cyclone M & Prince SG X @ 48/55 is superior in every other category (comfort, spin, feel..etc).

Tension recommendations (after hitting it, would you recommend a different tension? Why?) String it at 40lbs, to see the string would produce more power.
Summary: List 1 or 2 primary likes and dislikes.
Likes: it’s Orange, Control, and durability
Dislikes: Nothing really
Overall, it’s not a bad string; I would definitely try it in a hybrid for more power and feel.
