Affordable allround string which reminded me of the Polyfibre Cobra. Not only the texture is similar, but also the feel on impact.
The string is rather soft, good cushioning, maybe a bit too much so I lacked some feedback from the ball and I thought the string was absorbing some of the energy.
Overall no particular weakness, but no remarkable strength either.

Very interesting string with a very edged look and feel.
Similar profile as Alu Power Rough or Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough. Would have loved to play those in parallel.
Similar feel compared to the Diamond Rough - not stiff but not soft either. Excellent spin and great control.
At times I felt like the string was hurting my arm.
Due to the extreme profile it is almost possible to get the strings straight during or after stringing.
If you like odd strings, you should try this one.

I'm not a big fan of nylon strings. But the Touch Titanium was great!
Awesome touch, nice large sweetspot, and very good power.
Unfortunately the strings start to move a bit, but I've seen worse than that. The control is sacrificed a bit, also due to the high power.
Due to the good touch I am considering trying the Touch Titanium in a hybrid.
It's a shame I have not discovered this string earlier...

Very interesting string with enormous dampening characteristics. Despite the soft feedback it does not feel dead or spongy, but provided decent power and liveliness instead.
The string provided good spin in all variants. Durability is average on my scale.
If you are looking for a soft comfortable poly of the new generation, you should definitely consider this string!
I'm curious of the bicolor strings play like this white poly.

The Sonic Pro Edge does not have much in common with the classic Sonic Pro. The color is a bit lighter, rather dark grey, while the Sonic Pro is really black. The Sonic Pro is soft and comfortable while the Edge is stiff and wire-like. The sweetspot seems smaller with the Edge.
I didn't like the feedback either, much too stiff. I even cut it out after 2 hours because I could not find much positive about it.

No longer comparable with today's standard. When it was launched it was probably a long lasting poly that had its fans. Played like the Polystar Classic but a bit tighter.

Could be strung 2 lbs lower. A highly competitive multifilament with good spin potential and control. Rather low-powered. Touch was okay but had expected a softer touch. Not a multifilament for a sensitive arm.

My clients like this string, and they're right. A multifilament with nice feel and very good power. Comfort left nothing to desire! Very good allround multifilament and a good value too!

Did not like the feedback of this string at all. The sweetspot seemed so small I could hardly hit a clean ball. Maybe I have to try it like Evgeny Korolev at 18 kg... maybe then the performance is better. At 24/25 kg it is not playable for me, unfortunately.

I was positively surprised by this string. It has a nice comfortable feel on impact, but does not feel dead. Power is quite high, control is very good. I really loved the touch I had with this string! Did not take any getting used to and the string gave me lots of confidence. Highly recommendable!
