To answer your question on my rating, to me NTRP is very subjective. Those that play in the USTA will understand what I mean. For those that are interested, I have done a few reviews for Wilson, Luxilon and most recently Volkl, but most of all I am a string enthusiast that enjoy working with players at all levels to optimize their gear so they can focus on technique and solid fundamentals.
Laney Tennis - Based on the information that we collect from our customers we believe T1 Firewire is a more lively string than Durafluxx. Often, players with high racket speeds make a judgement about a string by how well they can control the ball. For those players I would recommend string Firewire 1-2 lbs higher than Durafluxx. For players who look for more power I would recommend staying closer to 52-50 lbs. That said, if you like Durafluxx at 52 lbs I would give Firewire a try at 54-55 lbs.
