String Babolat RPM Team 17
Test Conditions Tension Racquet

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability

Tried the blue version this time.
A competitive but nice playing string! Good spin potential and unique feedback as with the other silicone coated strings from the RPM family. The RPM Team also has a special sound on impact, especially on the first serve.

String Tecnifibre ATP World Tour Multi 1.30
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
50/52 lbs Wilson BLX Blade 93 Amplifeel (MS, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (3.5 hrs.)
Ambitious multifilament! Even after some time of play there was no string movement which is quite unusual for a multifilament! Spin was excellent, power was sufficient. Had good control. This multifilament does not focus on touch but rather on competition. It was the first multifilament for me that played similar to a poly in terms of spin, control and snapback, but still provided typical multifilament feel. This is truly a new generation multifilament. Definitely worth a try. Thanks to Tecnifibre for the sample!

String Babolat M7 1.30
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/51 lbs Wilson BLX Blade 93 Amplifeel (MS, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (1.5 hrs.)
The new Babolat M7 combines 7 polyester strands into one string. It looks like a Syn Gut - and plays like that too. Rather direct feel but touch is still good. Power and control are okay but not extraordinary. It lacked some spin and the string movement was quite bad from the start.
The string broke after only 1.5 hours in the center of the string bed.
For me a bit disappointing for a string that is advertised with high durability.

Probably the touchiest multifilament I have played for a long time. The string pockets the ball very well and provides good power, but also good control at the same time. String movement is little initially but then increases. Touch and comfort are great. Durability is also acceptable. Must try!

Test Conditions Tension Racquet

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (3 hrs.)
Great multifilament! One of the few multifilaments that provide really good spin potential, although the strings move a lot. Feel was typical for a multifilament, with nice pocketing. The X-Natural provided very good power on flat drives, while still maintaining great control.
This black multifilament is suitable for advanced spin players.

String Kirschbaum Gut Feeling 1.30
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
50/52 lbs Wilson BLX Blade 93 Amplifeel (MS, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (0,75 hrs.)
Great multifilament that provides a maximum of feel and comfort on flat strokes. Power is great and strings don't move too much. When hitting with spin, the string sometimes feels a bit "crystalline", but not uncomfortable. Nice dampening of the shock on impact. What's interesting is that this string does not fray - it notches.
My current favorite in a hybrid with Kirschbaum Max Power crosses - unfortunately durability is much too short...

String Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
56/54 lbs Wilson BLX Blade 93 Amplifeel (MS, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (4 hrs.)
Interesting direct but deep touch on impact. The prohfile looks like the Alu Power Rough, but the Diamond Rough is not a Luxilon clone. The Solinco is not as powerful and more control oriented. The spin potential lasts until the string breaks. The Diamond Rough not only notches but also the cross strings seem to flatten with time when you are a hard hitter, so towards the end the string looks rather edged than round.
Compared to the standard Tour Bite, the Diamond Rough is a bit softer, but not as soft as the Tour Bite Soft which is significantly more comfortable.
A nice update to the Tour Bite, which also looks very nice.

String Babolat Origin 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/55 lbs Wilson BLX Blade 93 Amplifeel (MS, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (5.5 hrs.)
The Origin should be strung softer than usual unless you want to have a killer stringbed stiffness.
Feedback on impact is nice and comfortable, but not as soft as a multifilament. The Origin provides lots of power so there was significant lack of control on fast strokes.
Strings were moving around a bit from the first hit.
The Origin does not fray but it notches and then breaks.
