I'm just curious on what everybody thinks of theNXT line. What is better : NXt Max, NXT Tour, Or just the original NXt
 

North

Professional
I have found the original NXT too mushy on other racquets I've used in the past, including the ProKennex 5G and Prince MoreControl DB. But the NXT is great on my Slaz 1 -very playable, allowing great feel on touch shots (I mostly S&V) and with the best synthetic gut-like feel of any other string I've tried on the Slaz.

Semi-Pro
NXT on its own I felt was very VERY nice at first. But became dead very quick, probably after just 2-3 hours of hitting the strings went dead. That was the original NXT

nxt is good as long as you string em up tight...i am using the regular nxt at 63 lbs and i have used the nxt tour with good sucess as well...

I like several other strings better than NXT, but NXT is pretty good. It does seem to work better in some frames more than others. Yonex 850 is a good less expensive alternative IMO.

Slightly off-topic, but does anyone know which NXT TW strings in the demo racquets? When I did my racquet demo-ing about a year and a half ago I was told all racquets were strung w/NXT at 2 lbs over mid. My point is: I thought the strings were better feeling in stiffer frames like Wilson's PS than in softer frames like PK Ki5 PSE or Volkl v10 mid.

TW demos I've hit with have been strung with NXT Max, the longest-lasting (in terms of tension hold) but for me the least satisfying (in terms of feel) of the NXT family.

Occasionally, TW will string a higher-performance demo racquet with NXT (can't think of an example right now.)

NXT max is really good I wish they made it in smaller guages, I am going to try out 18g tour in a week on my LMP+

I'm kind of deciding between NXT max and NXT tour now, what do you guys think i should go with basedon playability, i dont care about durability.

NXT Tour is the best of the NXT bunch

NXT Tour is the best, by far. Hence the reason it is more expensive ($15.95 vs $13.95 for Max and $13 for regular NXT). You get what you pay for. I wish they sold NXT Tour in reels.

I would definitely go with NXT Tour. Way more feel that NXT Max.

i think os is junk...it doesnt play anywhere close to the others....
Have you even tried it? NXT OS is a 16L meant to stand up in larger racquets. Do a board search here...

yea, i tried it and couldnt get it out of my racquet fast enough...i usually go with either nxt or nxt tour...i dont really feel that much difference between these strings maybe just a bit more feel in the tour...
