Spin potential was apparent even before playing when the stringer told me the sharp edges were a literal pain to string! A good test for a string for me is always in the winter months when its dealing with heavier balls and colder conditions. Even though it lost about 10 lbs after about 3 months it was still playable and retained the majority of its characteristics of control and comfort. It also looks great compared to other dull looking strings!

Tecnifibre Black Code 1.24
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Fresh from the stringer YPTS plays very comfortable and spin friendly. The Black Code gave me arm troubles which I was never in trouble of doing with the Yonex. I have put this in my DR98 and also in a classic Dunlop F2.0 Tour at 58 lbs which would be too high in anything below the player spec weight but again unlike the Black Code, the Yonex managed to play well. A real all rounder for topspin players or those with longer flatter strokes.

I had this strung at the lowest initial tension I have yet tried - 20 kg, 44 lbs. At that tension with most strings one would expect severe trampoline effect and a loss of control. On the contrary, this string's response is so muted that even at that low tension control was excellent - one of the best I have experienced. OTOH power was low, even at that tension. Spin was excellent, almost up there with Hyper-G. Yonex could have justifiably named this string Poly Tour Control, but these days it would not catch as much interest as Poly Tour Spin, which is also befitting. Just don't expect much power.

n.a.
Played indoors on carpet with Dunlop Fort balls at 15-17°C (only doubles).
Strung on a Gamma drop weight machine in two pieces without problems, crosses were easy to weave.
Power, control and spin were average for me. I did not recognize an improvement in spin. The string feels a bit stiff on impact, and my serves don't work so well.
Durability seems to be equal to Poly Tour Pro. So far (after 6 hours of play) there is almost no string movement. The profile wore a bit round in the sweetspot.
Overall I'm undecided. I think the Yonex Poly Tour Pro still provides the better package. I might try the Poly Tour Spin in a hybrid with a multifilament cross string in order to improve feel.

There is no big difference between those strings for me, except that the Poly Tour Pro is more comfortable.

Very solid string with great value and performance even in soggy astroturf and cold conditions here in the UK.

Compared to:
Babolat RPM Blast
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Compared to RPM Blast 17 this certainly feels more harsh. However, it has kept tension much better from what I have had from it so far and it also gives a much more connected feel on the ball. Off-center hits felt a little more punishing but when you meet the ball correctly there are no issues.
