Even at 60 pounds this string still was very soft and offered arm friendly play. This string had tremendous feel and played with great control. As I continued to play throughout the week these strings held there tension and continued to play great. I played for 2 hours with this string each day and by the end of the 2nd week they began to fray and that allowed amazing spin control. 3 days into the 3rd week they broke but I hit with a lot of spin and break strings very often and these held up longer then other multis I have played with. Although they are a bit expensive they played the softest had the most feel and control throughout the strings life.
Is it really better than Gamma Professional 17g which lasts incredibly long for a 17g. I think because it is irradiated.
