The only feedback I got was that it was nothing like Stratagem 8. I know, not helpful :cautious:

I also got ichiban.spin, 16g,
I strung that up on 3x of my h.radicals 46/44lbs,, im expecting that to feel nice!!??
 
Review of Strategem 10

Myself and a friend use it we both enjoy it a lot. He is a former UTR 12 in juniors and I played in college.

It does not do one thing spectacular, but it's a really good all around string and can compliment a wide range of playing styles. Strings move around quite a bit prior to breaking but it's overall a great string for the price.

@loosegroove @niketennispro
just strung it up
"PROS PRO STRATEGEM 10"
no crazy coil memory, normal
acted rather stiff at first touch, but it stretches while under tension
I strung it on my yonex.vcore.tour.g 16/20 at 49/46lbs
no issues stringing
easy to weave for a poly
does not stretch like pp.red.devil, but there was a bit of stretch, little, so at higher tensions (high 50s, 60s), I think you would see a bit more stretching under tension
but for me it seems ok in the high 40s,, i also think that because of this the 17g i ordered is a bit thinner now, i also expect that a 16g version of this string would play more like a 17g poly, so thats not bad
i bounced the ball a bit after, feels good, comfortable at first impression
i still do not see/notice any "edges" (expecting to feel/see 10 of them),, at times i think i see some flat edges, but I'm not sure?!, if the edges are there, they are way too small for me to see for sure
it does feel round, seems to have very low string friction, so this string would work very well on a cross situation with any main IMO,,
play test to follow!!

Well the Big T description does say ”With a round profile, it compares very favorably to the softest co-polys on the market." So you're not crazy!

@loosegroove @niketennispro
got a chance to finally play with this string (pp.strategem 10) this past friday
right away very comfortable for a poly
like @niketennispro mentioned, nothing stands out, its ajust a comfortable good feel poly
spin was good, power good, control was good
I was targeting my serves pretty well as expected,
the feel is like a round lux.alu.power but I would say the lux.alu.power would provably be a bit/tad crisper/solid
this string is pretty good for both mains and crosses
like i said, no notisable edges, so it can be crosses with multis with no issue

I strung this at my normal tension
I strung it on my yonex.vcore.tour.g 16/20 at 49/46lbs
next time I would string it up at same tension, since I know what to expect from this string
durability wise, it should hold for 3 weeks for me, anything less ill report back
