Just to be clear, I'm currently hitting Cyclone Tour which is a twisted version of the regular Cyclone. It is red, and from what I have read, it is a substantially different string. That being said, I haven't noticed any significant performance decrease yet after 2.5 hours on court. The real test will come on the next outing, I think. Spin was good, but Blue Rough was better. Odd random thing that I remember someone else writing about, too, is that I was literally tearing into the ball. There were a lot of little patches of fuzz on the court--kind of like little yellow toupes. Strange, but made me feel cool
I'll write some more after I hit again. Might be a while, though, with the holidays coming up.
