For the first 60 minutes I did not feel comfortable with this string. But then it softened up and provided great feel. No string movement which is very important for me. A durable string that is suitable for a powerful game.

 (9 hrs.)
Tested outdoors on hard court at 10-15°C.
This string has a good tension maintenance and a good overall playability. Great string in gauge 1.30 on 645 cm² like Pure Aero for example. For me, easier to play than the Luxilon Original string.

Good poly but I felt uncomfortable in my arm after longer sessions. Worked very well on volleys. Great precision.
However I don't know why you should spend that much money for a polyester string!

The Solinco is better from my point of view. The Luxilon is not a good value at this price.

n.a.
Although these are very good strings, they're too powerful for me and once the tension dropped on them they started spraying the ball long; but for comfort and feel without losing out on control and spin these are pretty good. If I were to try these again, I'd have to string them at 65+ tension (regardless of whether Luxilon recommend I should lower the tension by 10%).

The Luxilon 4G and Yonex Poly Tour Pro are very similiar strings, but I do think the Luxilon are better, even at the higher price. They're more comfortable, accurate and consistent than the Yonex strings.
