String Pro's Pro Vendetta 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
47/47 lbs Wilson BLX Blade 98 (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (10-12 hrs.)
A solid string, very cheap, for those who like to restring often. I've played with it using Wilson BLX Pro Open and Wilson BLX Blade 98, in summer and in autumn, mainly on clay (but on synthetic surfaces too). It's a good string, not very different from more expensive ones. On clay it does not help you a lot because it does not provide you very much spin. Good power, big loss of tension after about 5 hours. As comfortable as other monofilaments in stringing.

It's a solid string, cheaper than Babolat Pro Hurricane. It provides less spin but the other characteristics are not so different. To be tried as main in a hybrid combo.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Used for both mains and crosses on clay courts and in winter. It's more comfortable and softer than the average of polyester strings, but it lasts a little bit less. It provides a lot of power. The mains move more than normal polyester strings use to do.

Cheap thick nylon string. Easy to string. I've tried it both alone and hybrid as main string with Prince Lightning XX 16. It has a surprising durability for its elasticity and softness. It provides a good power but a very poor control.
