I saw your previous comments on BT7 where you acknowledge Babolats intent to improve durability and that there are many trade offs in life. Would you acknowledge that in this case Babolat took the worlds best playing production tennis string, increased durability a bit for the trade off of a stiffer string with less power and feel?

Look forward to your response!
This sounds like a loaded question...but here goes.

BT7 was added to make the string more durable without grossly changing the way gut plays. From your phrasing, I'm going out on a limb and guessing you feel it plays stiffer, with less feel, and less power. I hear you and if you read the thread, I've relayed this information to our string product team.
