I strung it at 46 in my blade 16/19, it felt incredible. I really think it is a contender to hyper g. Plus it is way more easy on the eyes, which is always nice.
Damn right you are! This string is nothing like hyper G. Hyper G is one of the worst strings there is in my opinion. I hated it. Hyper G is very shaped. Lynx tour ist almost completely round.What a great string this is. Power, control and spin. Minimal string movement like 4G it gives you almost the same solid feel. I don’t know why people compare it with Hyper G when clearly reminds more of 4G. I also found it to be quite stiff which i like and one of the best in terms of tension maintenance..... they only one negative is it’s ultra muted feel. I am curious of silver and orange if they have better feel and less stiffness.... it would be ideal.
Which color?Tried once mixed feelings. 1.25mm at 50 lbs. Loved it during first session. Had lost a lot of tension and was too powerful during second session. Had to cut it out. Worth trying again at higher tension?
Play with Confidential normally. Lynx Tour is much softer, closer to hg.
I think the 17 gauge is a little thicker than 1.25mm, hence the weight difference with KB Max Power.Strung my VCP330 with 1.25 full bed at 51/49, and hit with it for a couple of hours yesterday. First impressions very good, this is definitely my kind of string.
Interestingly the strung racquet came out 1g heavier than KB Max Power and 2g heavier than Yonex PT Strike. I always string this frame the same way, 1-piece with Parnell knots.
Will it give more control than a full bed of Lynx Tour? Thiem used Lynx Tour 16 mains and Head Hawk 17 crosses just for the record.Those of you still using or looking at Lynx Tour - I highly recommend trying a hybrid of Lynx Tour 17 mains and Head Hawk 17 crosses. (In)famously used by Thiem to beat Roger at IW last year. Testing it alongside Crossfire ZX and it's just superb. Feels like a Klip gut hybrid I did with 4G awhile back, with less power. Really great for hitting flat and through the ball, but still gives good spin when you need some height. The feel of the strings is what is drawing me closer and closer to buying reels of the stuff.
For reference I'm using it on a Six.One Team 18x20 w/ leather, 50x47 pounds.
Oops. I forgot size does matter.Will it give more control than a full bed of Lynx Tour? Thiem used Lynx Tour 16 mains and Head Hawk 17 crosses just for the record.
I haven't used Lynx Tour in a more open 16x19 pattern in a larger head sized racquet, only my 95in 18x20. A full bed of Lynx Tour for me locked up and didn't give me anything in particular.dunno, head hawk has power rating substantially lower than lynx tour in the TW review, which is also corroborated by TWU stats.
Good choice, this string does everything well and I really couldn’t find anything I disliked about it. I had the same experience as you with it having good directional control. I am curious if they will release a 1.20mm version.Just ordered a reel of this in 1.25/champagne colour from TWE, will commit to this for now with no hesitation.
