Gauge of playtest string - 16g
Tension used for playtest - 46
Regular string set up – Solinco Barbwire 16L @ 46
Racquet brand and model used for test – Head 25th Anniversary Prestige MP
Power of test string - Solid power for a poly. Not too springy or uncontrollable. Good combination with lower powered racquet.
Feel – Nice feel around the net on touch shots, drop shots an angle volleys.
Spin – There was enough spin for my game.I hit flat off both sides and didn't feel as if I was missing needed spin on groundstrokes. I could appreciate the spin on my kick and slice serves.
Durability – Durability has been very good. Very little notching after about 12 hours.
Playability Duration – Still playable after about 6 sets of doubles and a couple groundstroke sessions. Very good for a poly.
Control – Control was about average. I did not feel any loss or gain of control with this string.
Tension recommendations – Should be strung loose in dense string patterns, 46-48 for my stick. I could see how this string could be springy/spongy in an open pattern if strung to loose however.
Compare to the string you use most often – It plays similiarly to Barbwire. I think the Barbwire is a little more crisp and maybe not quite as powerful.
If you have played with the original Cyclone, please compare – N/A
