I instantly felt comfortable with this string and it worked well for me on this frame. It provides good touch on slow strokes and very good comfort. On hard strokes from the baseline it does not provide the same level of control and spin as a good poly, but on the other hand it provides great feedback and precision.
I will definitely play this string again, probably for the indoor season.

Comparison relates to Wilson NXT Tour 1.30. For me, the NXT 1.24 plays better. Good feel and comfort. I also had good spin potential (certainly due to the thinner gauge).

I've strung NXT in my two players racquets, my Pro Staff 6.0 85 (46 lbs) and my Yonex Vcore 89 (56 mains 52 crosses - although I think I should have strung it lower), it was relatively easy to string and am rather surprised with the results. I'd expected a more butter like touch and comfort (touch is good but at 46 lbs I'd expect it to be the highlight) but got accuracy, controllable power (this may be to do with the racquets though), adaptability (can hit everything with it) and am very much enjoying being able to tee off on my forehand and hit nasty slice backhands, without too much of a compromise on my topspin shots.

Excellent string and am looking forward to hybrid it with a few polys.

It played similar to Head Rip Control 1.20 (the 1.30 is too muted and under powered for a multi), although I haven't played with the NXT for too long I'd just give it a tad more accuracy than the Head Rip Control.

Very comfortable string, would recommend if you suffer from tennis elbow and arm problems. The string had great control along with the power which was great for flat shots. However it was hard to generate topspin but that's to be expected from the type of string. Overall was nice to play with but not a good choice for spin players or hard hitters as durability was not good. There was also noticeable string movement almost immediately.

My test racket was highly customized with 8 grams of lead tape at 9 and 3 o'clock, and at 12 and 6. The sweet spot seems enormous and less twisting seems to occur on impact.

Wilson says this string effectively increases the sweet spot 10%. I believe them. I actually prefer the NXT to natural gut. It's very easy on the arm, offers exceptional feel, excellent spin and control. Even at full retail, this string is worth it, but you can always find deals for just a few dollars more than say Tecnifibre Promix.

Played on clay in a hybrid with Signum Pro Poly Plasma 1.18 mains.
The NXT provides great comfort, lots of soft feel, and great control. Power is almost on the same level as the Tecnifibre X-One Biphase, but it doesn't fray as much. It frays just a little and then it breaks quickly. Feel and sound are different from other non-PU multifilaments. No significant tension loss during the 8 hours.
I would recommend to string it 2-4 lbs higher or pre-stretch.
Once my stringer put it in the mains and crosses - it lasted only 2 hours.
The only thing that keeps me from using it as my standard cross string is the high price.

The NXT feels a bit more competitive compared to the Gamma Live Wire Professional/XP, but it's twice as expensive as the Gamma.
