My take is that here are so many polys out there and the folks here tend to try all of them. The bottom line with this string is that it is a very good price/performer and the RSI review also indicates the same. Folks tend also not to answer when there is 35 pages of feeback, a TW review, customer feedback and a very positive and well done RSI review to read. The regulars here are sort of sick of answering questions that have been asked over and over and over...not to mention the newbies that can't seem to do a basic search to find info. This thread has been active for almost a year. Some very good folks tested this product and they have moved on. How much can you add to a thread... buy a fews sets a low price of under $9.00 and take a chance. Yikes...it is not the best string in the world.. but a great string for the price.

Playtester comments

“Who says you can’t have it all? This string has an incredible combination of spin, control, comfort, and power. It handles low tensions very well. If you haven’t tried a co-poly yet, this is where you should start.” 4.5 male all court player using Babolat Pure Drive Roddick strung at 47 pounds CP (Solinco Tour Bite 1

“Good feel, outstanding spin. This could be my new string.” 4.0 male all court player using Volkl V1 Classic strung at 56 pounds CP (Wilson Hyperlast Spin 19)
