    This string is terrible it's too stiff. I had nothing but elbow and shoulder problems after hitting for 2 hours. I changed out the strings the next day, no more elbow pain.

    I am a solid 4.0 player and use these strings in the mains with natural gut crosses. Simply put, these strings offer more spin potential than anything I had used before. The difference in simply amazing. Control is also excellent.

    Excellent String. I am a 4.0+ all court player, use New Pro-Staff, 55 lbs. Thinner gauge provides excellent spin while only giving up slight durability. String has outstanding control and feel. I use this string for full racket and have no arm issues. Provides very consistent feel and precision of shots. Plus still able to rip a 90 mph forehand. best string I've tried. Both my daughters play college tennis and they are now using this string.

    Expected result I've got

    This is a mid-end quality string not as superb as Luxilon Savage, but much better than synthetic guts. (the usage experience of string is very subjective in my opinion). The reason I bought this instead of Salvage is the decent price offered by Midwest Sports.

    Love it!

    I have been a long time Technifibre fan for my poly and by far this is way better than any Technifibre string I have ever played with! I strung this with a wilson synthetic gut and strung the poly at 54, and the synthetic gut at 57. Amazing. Took more spin to keep the ball in but it's possible to get that extra spin with this string. I was shocked at the difference the string the same price point! I am a medium-high level high school player, and the string maintained its tension for the amount of time I played with it. Best poly string ever is the only way to describe it. I definently reccomend this for anyone that wants spin with some power, and the ability to control balls at the net.

    Arm Friendly and Lots of Spin!

    My son uses the Luxilon Big Banger ALU Rough 16 as the mains, and use to sue the Tecnifibre X-One Biphase as the crosses, all strung at 55 lbs. However, the Tecnifibre strings simply did not last, so I convinced him to try these. Not only did he find that he liked these strings better than the Tecnifibre, but the last longer too, so it was a win-win all the way around.

    Great string!

    These are good strings with enough comfort, spin and just the right amount of power. It's a great price for a Luxilon string, but just didn't last long enough in the open string pattern of my Wilson Steam 99s racket (about three weeks). Good string for big hitters since it's low powered, but is a little stiff. Overall a good string and would recommend it.

    Loved just about everything about this string. Strung it pretty low for a 18 gauge. I went with 52 lbs. Played about 2 hrs of doubles and singles for my high school team. I am a big counter puncher and love to play out a point and this string was great for that. Awesome power when needed but then amazing playability when approaching the net. LOVE this string and will continue to use it.

    I love this string! It is a little less expensive than other high quality spin strings in the market, but it is still expensive to do a full bed of this (Which I don't think you should try...) I use this in a hybrid setup, and the amount of spin I got was so much more than the Big Banger alu power. All in all, I love this string because I tend to hit flatter strokes, and I need the extra spin. I will be using this in all of my tournaments!

    I got this string because I was unhappy with the the strings that I was using. All the types I tried and I tried about 5 or 6 were either too much spin and not enough control or too much power and not enough spin. I wanted a good string for spin and speed. This string delivers in a big way BOTH SPIN and POWER. And surprisingly has touch too-very unexpected. Anyway, I will no longer use anything else. DONE!
