String Topspin Cyber Flash 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (9 hrs.)
Great string with great price/performance ratio. Impressive power while it blends well with the control. This string also fits nicely in a hybrid with Isospeed Control crosses, which is a bit cheaper compared to using Alu Power in the mains. I use the Cyber Flash / Isospeed Control hybrid for practice and the Alu Power / Isospeed Control hybrid for tournaments and team matches.

I like the Topspin Cyber Flash a bit better overall. Great alternative to the Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power.

Plays nice. Good alternative to the more expensive polys like Alu Power. It lacks feel and sometimes the shock is really high, I don't like that. Maybe this can be compensated by lowering the tension but then again you lose control. Well anyway this is a great value.

Alu Power is definitely better but is too hard on my arm, the Duralast is better in this category. Price/performance ratio is better than Signum Pro Poly Plasma.

I tried the string as a full job and in combination with Isospeed Professional crosses. With the hybrid I did have sufficient touch and I was really happy with it. But with the pure string job the strings were dead after 6 hours. That didn't happen with the Poly Plasma, however it also happened with the Plasma HEXtreme.

Stringing was easy. Awesome spin, control, and feel. Durability was also very good at 9 hours. I will try to use Isospeed Professional in the crosses at 24/27 to get more power.

Compared to the Alu Touch Hybrid, the Ace Touch Hybrid provides better control, feel and spin. Only the power was better with the Alu Touch Hybrid.

Very easy to string. I was also satisfied with the durability of 10 hours. I've also tried the Alu Power in combination with the Isospeed Professional, which had better playability than the Alu Touch Hybrid. Now I will use the Big Banger Ace in the mains and the Isospeed Professional in the crosses, an awesome combination!

Compared to the Ace Touch Hybrid, the Alu Touch does not provide as much control, feel, spin and comfort, but the power is better and the tension stability is the same.

Great string. Great control at moderate power. The playing characteristics are well balanced. I prefer the Isospeed Control over the Isospeed Professional due to its better durability. Otherwise the two strings are absolutely identical.

The string provides better control and feel than the Signum Pro Poly Plasma. The only downside is the lack of tension stability and durability.

Great string, I never had such a good feel with a poly before. I will try the string in different hybrid combinations, e.g. with Isospeed Professional or Isospeed Control, as well as the Alu Touch Hybrid. If you can afford this string you should definitely try it.

The Signum is a bit worse in every category except power. I had much better control with the Luxilon.

Great poly. Can almost keep up with the Poly Plasma. The string provides a bit less spin, feel, and control than the Signum and it comes at a higher price. However I was very satisfied, I could get a bit more kick on my serves compared to the Signum.

Plays great. Incredible feel and power. You just need to find the right tension to start with.
Now I will try this string in combination with Signum Pro Poly Plasma.
