String Kirschbaum Pro Line No. II 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
58/58 lbs Babolat Pure Control Team (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Bought a 200m reel of 1.25 due to my old string always breaking at the frame. Felt quite tight and stiff for the 1st hour then suddenly it came alive. It had ridiculous levels of power with a suprising amount of control. Tension loss was just noticeable and durability was great for me and I found it soft enough to not aggravate my arm. Great string for its price and playability. Try it out!

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
The 1.25 was extremely easy to string, took less than 20 minutes to string which is good for me. When I started playing I was immediately unimpressed. The string bed felt dead, gave little feedback and the control was poor. Would not recommend this string to anyone who has any amount of string.

Ordered the new Hyperion string as soon as it came out. Signum Pro recognised that the old Poly Plasma was prone to breaking at the frame and they have said they have developed a newer more resilient string. They were spot on. Broken 4 sets now, all in the centre! Feels better than all other Signum Pro strings. Same characteristics but better in all areas. Best string ever, and it's BLACK!!

Took quite a while to string due to its extremely rough nature. 30 minutes. Great control string with huge amounts of spin. Highly recommendable string!

Got it as a free promotional from a company I get my strings from. Don't usually go for a hexagonal string because the grip normally wears out after 2-3 hours of play. Easy to string and was similar to non hexagonal but with a bit more spin and lacking some touch. After 4 hours the string kept its shape. Recommend it.

Have previously said that I didn't think I could find a better string than the SPPP 1.23, I was wrong. Topspin Cyber Blue has much more control, huge amounts of power combined with some real nice touch! I am really impressed with this string and they are still going after a week with minimal tension loss. Would recommend to anyone seeking an awesome string...

String Tennis Tech Synthetic Gut Plus 1.30
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
58/56 lbs Babolat Pure Control Team (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung at 58lbs on my Babolat Pure Control Team. I played 4 sets with the 1.30mm on grass. During the first set the string felt quite tight with not much feel but after the string just woke up. It gave me great touch on the volleys and generated ample at the baseline. They were quite forgiving on the off-centre shots and at such a reasonable price the average durability was not an issue. I have bought a reel which is a popular choice of my customers.

String Pro Supex Blue Gear 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
58/58 lbs Babolat Pure Control Team (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Was a good string to string. Fantastic colour and I found it really suited my game at the baseline. Was able to hit with so much spin and power but with only average control. After an hour of play on grass I developed a slight pain in my arm so would only recommend this string for those without any history of arm injuries. After around 10 hours of play the string lost its octagonal shape and I was able to hit less spin. A good string for the price but much prefer any co-polyester Signum Pro.

String Luxilon Big Banger Original 16
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
56/56 lbs Babolat Pure Control Team (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
This is possibly the hardest ever polyester to string. Added about 15 minutes to my usual 20 minute string time. The only plus point I found was that it lasted a long time with minimum tension loss. The string agitated my injury within minutes due to the stiff and non-forgiving string bed. It gave me little confidence to hit the softer, more precise shots as I felt it gave me little control and touch. Would not recommend this string for the reasons above combined with the high price tag. Really not impressed by all the hype.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
A big improvement on the Big Banger Original. Strung at 56lbs on my Babolat Pure Control team. Was much softer on the arm and I found it gave good power and spin but I have found that with the majority of Big Banger you get insufficient control and comfort so would only recommend it if you're a truly awesome player. Only then will the strings feel how you expect.
