    Volkl Cyclone - what is similar?

    I've settled on Volkl Cyclone 17 (Black) as my go-to string after much testing. There are only 2 issues I have with it: 1. The first hour of play feels too stiff and under-powered. If I go with a lower tension, it solves this problem but the string bed becomes too loose and launchy from the 2nd...

    Tension advice for 18 x 20 low powered racquet?

    Hey guys. I was researching this and there seems to be two camps on this. I have a Gravity Pro which falls under the "18 x 20 low powered" racquet category. I am experimenting with tensions. I use Volkl Cyclone mostly. I have always strung above 52lbs but I have read ppl suggest that under 50 is...

    Tension for Volkl Cyclone 19g?

    I recently started using Volkl Cyclone 18g on both of my Head Radical MPA rackets, strung at 57 lbs (the recommended range on my racket is 48-57 lbs}. I like the string A LOT and now need to replace them on both rackets because of wear, as the "texture" has worn out, and I am not getting the...

    Volkl Psycho users

    Hi guys. I am a fan of the Volkl Psycho string set. I would like to know how you guys use it in your racquets? I am still on the fence if I want to continue using it or a full bed of Cyclone. Thanks.

    Solinco Tour Bite vs Golden Set Snake Bite vs Volkl Cyclone

    I just bought a Head Graphene 360 Speed Pro and had it strung with Solinco Tour Bite (54lbs). I took a gamble since the company I purchased the racquet from did not have Volkl Cyclone strings which are my usual strings. Anyhow, after I tried the racquet for the first time, I was really...

    Does String Color Play A Difference In Cyclone?

    Most gauges for Cyclone have the option of black, orange, and yellow (Looks like 18g is the only one with pink). Has anyone tested out multiple string colors and noticed any difference in playability? Is control affected? Any difference in spin? Play duration? Also, are there any other big...

    Tecnifibre Black Code Fire / Lemon

    Is there one guy that tested the new Black Code Fire or Lime ? I heard the Fire would be like the Volkl orange Cyclone (that I prefer to the black one) and the lime like a Revolve spin green. Some reviews would be welcome !
