I was skeptical that I would like this string before playing with it. But after two matches, I was pretty impressed with the performance of this string. This was my first experience with a string from the Luxilon line. Ultimately, I feel that this is a worthwhile string to play with, if you are willing to pay the price. The only negative aspect in this string would be in the stringing of it. I did not enjoy stringing my racquet with this string. I now understand why my local tennis shop looks down on this string. Before I started to string my own racquets, the professional stringer in my community did not encourage trying out this string because of the difficulty of stringing it. I on the other hand will play with this string again.

If you play tennis a lot and generate a lot of spin, this might be for you. I did a complete poly job. I think I'll do a hybrid or a softer poly next time. The string has been on the racquet for almost 3 months now and it plays fine, though the strings move more now and it doesn't have the bite on topspin that it did a month earlier.
Btw, I use this string on a Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85. Because it is stiffer than synthetic gut, it doesn't make as nice of a sound upon impact, but better control is worth it.

This is the first poly I've ever tried. I had reservations about moving from synthetic gut, but this string has played very well. It's nowhere near as soft as a multifilament, and it can hurt your arm if you don't warm up and get strong. Since I'm in good shape, I can deal with it. I would recommend this string then only to experienced tennis players with good mechanics who can benefit from the improved spin and control of poly.

Cannot rate the durability yet. Quite easy to string. Good power, unfortunately too much for my Pure Drive +. I strung 4 lbs looser than usual because someone advised me to.
