Solinco Tour Bite voted the poly/spin of 2011 in stringforum


The string vote result just came out. It's interesting to see Solinco Tour Bite rising up the top in 2 categories (poly and spin) and in top 5 of other categories, and there is only one entry for Luxilon ALU Power Rough. This is similar to what I heard from a string room at Thailand Open 2011. My stringer friend strung more Tour Bite and less ALU Power Rough this year.

Hall of Fame
How can a string that was introduced years ago be a contender for String of 2011?
Spiky SharK? Lux BB Ace? C'mon, what kind of poll is this anyway?
And Tourna Big Hitter nowhere to be found?
Let's give the Grammy to Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd!
Nothing against Tour Bite.
PSGD and Lightning XX are among the 5 best selling strings in the US. So what?

Ratings are always subjective. But, I think the fact that Signum Pro has the most strings in the 2 categories should tell you something. I am a big fan of Signum Pro poly strings. Currently have reels of Tornado 17G and Hyperion 17G and like them both a lot.
