Received a string sample from Tier One (did not hear about this company before). Used my standard poly setup. 50 lbs mains and crosses. By far the best spin I ever experienced with a string. Tension held exceptionally well for a poly until it broke. Usually I would play 2-3 hours longer with other polys but the overall experience and affordable price will outweigh the lesser durability. Would recommend this string to anybody who is trying to add extra spin to their game!

FireWire is the latest string that really wowed me! I received a sample at a tournament in San Diego and I am glad I gave this triangular string a try. I have never played with a string that offered that much access to spin. The string felt crisp. It was well balanced in the power/control department. Durability was all right. I would highly recommend this string to player with a rating at around 4.5!

Although Tour Bite was my go to string for a while I just switched to FireWire. Extra power and never seen access to spin made me switch to this incredible string. Tour Bite is the winner in the durability category but Firewire holds the tension extremely well.

I used RPM Blast before, and this string offers even more spin! I haven't noticed any deficiency as far as control, power, or feel either. The one problem was that it is fairly stiff, so I accidentally strung it too high. I would recommend stringing it a few pounds lower than your usual tension. Other than that, it's fantastic!
