Was somewhat disappointed with this string. Initially thought the lack of power would not be a problem, but found that there was a bigger difference in power depending on whether it was a pure hit or not which I think accounts for the lack of control. May need to play with more, but now do not feel it is as good as the SPPP.

Strung this as hybrid with Gosen OG Sheep Micro crosses on a Prince Shark. Disappointed with both power and consistency of string on mishits. I felt that shots in the sweet spot had significant power, but any shots out of the sweet spot had significantly less power. This creates a lot of problems with control and feel.

This is one of the best strings I have played with. Great feel and control. I played some of my best tennis with this string. With the added control I felt I was able to hit the ball much harder. My only disappointment was that it did not last longer.

Excellent string, for a poly not too bad on the arm. Excellent tension stability.

I was very dissatisfied with this string. I found it too powerful in my Shark MP. Very little pocketing of the ball which meant very little control. The ball seemed to just fly off the strings not even with the trampoline effect one gets after strings lose their tension. It was a very comfortable string, but I was happy when two mains in the center broke after about 6 hrs of play. Would definitely not use again.

This string came with a Prince Turbo Shark I recently purchased. The string seemed to play well though it broke the fourth time I played with it. I do tend to go thru strings in that I hit with a great deal of topspin off the forehand but that is much too fast for me and I would not purchase this string again.

I am primarily a control player with heavy topsin off the forehand. I played about 12 sets with this string before it broke. It took me about 4-5 sets to get used to the string. Initially I found it inconsistent with very little power on offcenter shots. Eventually I did find the control with the string quite good. With the lack of power and the lack of durability I would not use this string again.

I recently restarted playing tennis in the last year. I played in college and my game is primarily as a scrambler with heavy topspin off the forehand, though I will chip and charge and serve and volley on hard courts. Initially I played with the Prince Pro Blend string which I liked except that it seemed to lose its tension after a couple weeks. This string seems to hold its tension very well, does not move much so much less fraying and I am able to generate some exceptional spin most of the time. I found the power and control of the string comparable to the Pro Blend. I think the string is fairly easy on the arm compared to other Luxilon strings.
