String Wilson Extreme Synthetic Gut 16
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
50/48.5 lbs Wilson KSix-One 95 18x20 (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (>20 hrs.)
I am probably a 4.0 player taking the ball early, and trying to be aggressive S&V-ing regularly and using the drop shot, as well as big cuts on forehands and single backhand.

I use the K6.1 95 18x20 and this string is a great match.

If you play an aggressive game with a lot of variety - and you are are 'feel' player - I am confident you will like this string... I do not quite understand the negative comments about this string.

I find it easy to take the ball early with this string, with plenty of time to make a decision on what to do... so half-volley pickups are much, much better than with the polys I have tried.. those are numb and boardy to me and I will only use poly on clay to save money.

Yonex Poly Tour Pro 125

For someone like me the Yonex Poly Tour Pro 125 does not even come close with regards to feel and tension maintenance.
Indoors, I'd take the Wilson every time.

Plenty good string for all under, shall we say 6.0 players, especially for players who play with variation in their game.

Compared to the WeissCannon Explosiv!:
Much better spin, durability, control, tension stability.
A bit harder on the arm, but still OK.
This is a severely underrated string!
Newer is not necessarily better!
WeissCannon Explosiv! has zero spin potential and loses tension faster than a bankster loses credibility, especially when wet. It also costs approx. twice as much as the Dunlop M-Fil Tour which is a steal at the price it is sold at. Even with 18 x 20 I can generate lots of spin.

Compared to the venerable (should I write "old"?) Dunlop M-Fil Tour, this string does provide much more power and feel. But since I can provide both of those myself, I found the Explosiv! lacking in: spin, control and especially tension stability. This seems more like an older senior's string as it is very kind to the arm. But forget using it outdoors in case of any moist!
