A bit about me before I start. I am about a 4.0-4.5 player, who mainly plays doubles. Huge kick and slice serve, as well as an extreme full western grip forehand ( as the username would indicate). Spin is a huge part of my game. Ironically my backhand is as flat as can be, but is my finishing shot What gauge did you receive?: I received the 17g, 1.23mm Tension(s) used for playtest: Mains was 51 pounds, crosses 53 pounds. If hybrid, please list tension of M's & X's as well as the partner string.: Mains were V-pro and crosses Klippermate neon syn gut 15l. Mains was 51 pounds, crosses 53 pounds. Regular string set up: Normally I either use Isospeed Baseline speed 16l in a full bed at 50 or in a hybrid with Klippermate neon syn gut 15l. I wanted a true apples to apples comparison for my go to hybrid so I just switched out the mains and put Vpro in the baseline's place Racquet used for test: Babolat Pure Aero Power of test string: Right off the stringer, for the first 4 or so hours the string felt somewhat stiff and boardy. After the first 6 hour mark, string settled in nicely and had a medium-ish power. I wouldn't consider power to be its strong suit, but it is slighty average for a poly until it does out Feel (Stiff? Mushy? Muted? Crisp? Boardy off-center?): At first it felt boardy, but once it settled in it loosened up and had a bit more feel. It was not mushy nor too muted. It had a bit of crisp to it, but not enough to consider it a crispy string in my opinion. Overall, a nice blend of crispiness and control. Spin: Because it is a somewhat slick poly, it had a decent amount of spin to it. I wouldn't say it has as much as an RPM blast or a Solinco Revolution, but it has as much as you'd expect from a round poly Comfort: Originally the comfort was not too great, as straight off the stringer it felt boardy and somewhat stiff. Once they settled in, it softened up a bit, but still I would not consider it as a soft string on its own. Once around the 15 hour mark, the playability died off and the string became quite harsh. Overall, somewhat average comfort for a poly. Durability: Because I used the 17g the string did break on me at around the 17 hour mark, which is pretty average for me with poly/syn gut hybrids. I would say the durability is pretty good Playability Duration: I'm sorry to sound like a broken record, but again, the string's playability is incredibly average. Like any other round poly, it feels somewhat "eh" for the first couple hours, then once it settles in its feel and playability increases and feels quite nice. At the 15+ hour mark it dies out and loses all playability. Overall, it is ok for what it aims to do Control: Here is where the string shines, sort of. The string feels control orientated, but I would not say is it completely muted and stiff like a tour bite or a volkl cyclone. It felt like a "watered down" control poly, if that makes any sense. The easisest way to describe it is a string with 65% control, 35% power .Overall, nice control string that has a right blend of control and power Compare to string used most often: Isospeed baseline has more pop and power than V-pro, but V-pro lasted longer in terms of playability and was more consistent throughout the playtest. Overall, both are pretty above average best bang-for-your-buck polys for those who don't look too much into their equipment or for the home-stringer List any additional thoughts (optional).: If anything else, the string's color is pretty cool . Thanks TW and Volkl for the opporunity for the playtest! Hoping to be here in the future for more great strings!
