This string is very bad. Started splits from day 1 and broke in 7 days of practice. If you are looking for long term don’t buy this.

Good pop and pockets the ball nicely. Wrist & arm injuries need a comfort string, and so far this is treating my arm well.

I've been using this string for a few years. It has the best gut-like feel of any synthetic I've used. Good control and power by pocketing the ball in the sweet spot.

I brought the 17g X-One Biphase tecnifibre for my 3 Wilson Clash strung at 55lbs. I’ve hit and played with all 3 four times a week in a two week span. I’m a teaching pro and my level of play is 4.5. The strings plays great and the feel is awesome. The downside, is the strings longevity is short lived. Now, I’m debating trying 16g to compare and possibly going with another brand. This why, I give this string a 4. Was hoping for tecnifibre to be way better.

3.5 (USTA rated) level male who exclusively plays doubles in my 30s. I really liked my prior Gamma Live Wire XP but my store stopped carrying it and highly recommended Technifibre X One Biphase 16 as best all around string at my level. Like many of you already stated, it’s really excellent for feel, comfort and control. I tend to string mid range so I don’t pop strings often if ever; seems many here are critical of the durability. Any string is more prone to pop the more tension you opt for, that should be common sense. The one knock is I agree for power and top spin its not as “helpful” to me in my game compared to my older Gamma live wire, particularly on serving and a volley i’m trying to punch with velocity. But maybe thats just the tension being too low and not the strings itself? But for doubles it’s a truly great string if you fancy yourself a shot maker who is cable of hitting a variety of angles/pace/depth. And are willing to sacrifice a little (not a lot of) help with power to get there.

The most akin to natural gut for players looking for an arm friendly string as well as play-ability. The only down side, is its longevity which is quite short comparing to the others.

I use NRG2 18g in the crosses with Pro Supex Big Ace Micro (19g) in the mains and it provides me with a silky smooth blend of power, control and playability I haven't been able to replicate with any other multi - including Biphase. Compared to Biphase, NRG2 feels more plush and doesn't require the break-in period the former requires. It's silky smooth from your first stroke and when it settles in, it's so nice. Durability for my setup, despite the thin gauge, is pretty impressive in my POG 100's with a 16x19 pattern. Love this stuff.

Terrific string and arm friendly. The natural seems a bit softer than the black. I prefer the natural. String at mid + 2 or 3 for a great feel. My string of choice. The 17G also has a bit more feel than the 16G. Best multi I have found. My other half now uses it and prefers it over a Babalot Natural Gut / Luxilon ALU power Combo. I am a 3.5 player. Swing away!

Let's start with the positive. This string has great feel and control. It gives me a feeling of being in complete control all the time. For power, I would give it an average mark and same for spin. The 17 gauge strings definitely get more bite than larger strings, but not sure it has a lot to do with the string itself. I would recommend these strings for older players that play a placement game.

Soft String

After a few years of hitting w/ polyester strings (RPM Blast, Tier One Firewire), I contracted tennis elbow. As a result, I switched to the X-One BiPhase strings. Very soft, gut-like string. Xlnt for arm pain. Nice touch. But nowhere near the power and spin of poly. That's the trade-off. Would likely be good to mix w/ a soft poly in a hybrid fashion.

Perfect

My son is 11 and plays with this string because of the playability, control, power, and most importantly arm friendly qualities of this string. It does fray and break faster than any string I have seen. But, it is so well worth it. My son gets about 20 to 30 hours before they break. I used to only use poly string and after buying a stringer to keep up with my sons string breaking, I tried it. Wow, I was so amazed. First, the serve. Spin, check, placement, check, power, check. Groundstrokes same with the added touch of being able to drop or lob. Net was also better with angles and just great pop. I highly recommend any serious player to try this string, and you will see all of these instant improvements. Unless your Nadal, which I assume you are not, stick to this multifilament and stay away from poly.

Dan from IA on 4/17/2014 12:00:00 AM wrote:

I have tried all kinds of polyesters (luxilon, Wilson, babolat), but the Black Code is my favorite. I use 18g, so that in combination with the shape of the string makes for big time spin in a hybrid. Its also the softest polyester I've played with, so its great for preventing arm/wrist problems. And it seems to have adequate durability. I'm sure a 16g holds up longer, but I play 3+ times a week at a 5.0 level and might break 2-3 per year. Most of the time the crosses of the hybrid break first. Excellent string- a little pricey, but its worth it.

Best feel of them all

I've tried out all kinds of multifiliments (nxt, sensation, nrg2, silent partner) and none has the feel of the biphase. I think it actually has better feel than even a nat gut (Wilson). I have used 18g biphase both in a hybrid and by itself. I loved the feel of it by itself, but durability is a problem. One set I had broke 3 games into a match. So now I use it with black code 18g in a hybrid and I love it!

Looking for control like NXT but was popping strings every 2-4 hrs. Didn't like Big Banger or RPM as lost feel- like Head Gut PPS for pop and control, but needed to switch when I was playing 6 hrs/day as was breaking around 10 hrs. This has endurance (14 hrs) and control- lose some power compared to the Head, but I didn't need.

The string is an excellent value and plays very similar to the gamma synthetic gut, but at a lower price. The lower cost does allow me to play around with string tensions without worrying too much about price. I also string my own rackets, about 1 per month, I play about 3 - 4 times per week.

Lasts at least 4 rounds of 2 hour play. Feel is excellent. Super comfort. Not overpowering. Dumped poly due to shoulder pain, but even without the shoulder issues I would have made the switch back to a multifilament, and this is at the top of what I've tried. Tried the 17g and 18g, 18g wins for spin. Groundstrokes are pinpoint, volleys are solid. I'm a big hitter, with lots of topspin.
