Tester Gernaux (120), 2017-04-29  Trusted Tester Residence: Germany male seniors team player upper league, hard strokes with moderate spin, offensive baseline game
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
51/51 lbs Head MicroGEL Prestige MP (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces without problems.
Played indoors on carpet and outdoors on clay with Head No. 1 and Dunlop Fort balls.
Good control, low power are the main characteristics of this string. Moderate spin is possible. Can't complain about tension maintenance or comfort either.

Conclusion: Good string, but nothing extraordinary.

Thanks to TWE for the sample.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
Played indoors with Dunlop Fort TP balls.
The setup with Völkl DNX9 did not convince me.
The strings felt stiff, stiffer than other "pure" polys.
Power was average or slightly above, same for control.
Due to the stiff feedback I did not enjoy this string.
Thanks to TWE for the sample.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.  (>8 hrs.)
Strung on an electric machine in two pieces. Easy to string, very little stretch.
Played indoors on carpet and Canada Tenn.
The string does not have any particular highlights, but no real weakness either. I liked its control and tension stability (without measuring). There was only a minimal change in playing characteristics during the first 8 hours of play.
I don't think this is a good value. In this price range there are many better strings.
Thanks to TWE for the sample!

49/46 lbs Head YouTek Graphene Prestige REV Pro (MS, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Srung on an electronic machine in two pieces.
It is significantly stiffer than the Double AR Sylikon.
Overall a decent string, but there is no category that stands out. So it is hard to recommend this for a specific type of player.
If you are looking for a solid allround string you might want to try this string. But there are certainly some good alternatives in this category.

55/55 lbs Prince EXO3 Graphite 100 (MP, 16/18)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
Strung on a Stringway machine in two pieces without problems. The string's profile reminded me a lot of the MSV Focus-Hex.
Played indoors on fast carpet with used (1 hour) Dunlop Trainer balls.
The Double AR Pura 25 provided very good touch from the start, solid spin, but depth control, even with spin, was a bit harder due to the high power when compared to stiffer polys.
The string worked very well on serves and heavy spin strokes.

The Double AR Pura plays similar to the MSV Focus Hex, but provides more power and less depth control.
