i know there is a monster thread on BHB7. however i wanted to try the string and post a review separately as it would get lost in the larger thread. play tested BH black7 16gg in a prestige pro pro-stock stick (12.4oz 350sw, 7pt HL). strung on a stringway ML100 at 47/45 pounds. a quick review: strung up OK, sharp on the fingertips when weaving crossing. i have mixed feeling about this string. it comes down to sheering type shoots vs ball pocketing. what i mean by "sheering" is: BH slice, kick serve, droppers, sharp cross court top spin, the string performed well. when hitting "ball pocketing" type shots, flat serves, FH or BH drives the string did not pocket well or create "heavy spin". the direction control on "pocketing" type of shots is not as good as other strings. additional note, on ball pocketing shots there is a lack of power compared to many other strings and it lacked control. edit: the string did not have much lateral movement when striking a topspin drive. this is something i look for to know know the ball is dwelling for a long time. for me the lack of good ball pocketing is a deal breaker. i could go to a lower tension but to me it feels like a square peg round hole issue.
