Yeah i tried it this summer and for the people arguing about what produce spin. I can say that badminton string with low tension produce more spin than Nadal. But good luck in the long rally cause it last about 20 hit

please keep us updates... i always wanted to try the trimmer line... the hex shape will definitely bite into the ball and produce some crazy spins.

Maybe it produces more spin because the string is so thin? I want to try that but I don't have a stringing machine and I wouldn't go to a shop and ask them to string my racquet. Might think I'm some sort of a kook.

Reviving an old thread ...

1) Is the tie-off knot a problem? If so, how do you overcome it?
2) Since durability is obviously a problem, has anyone tried double-stringing (so that where there should be one string now there are two ...)?

Thanks.
