 (8 hrs.)
I have both the 19g and 18L. 18L is slight more durable, and lasts till the performance of the string begins to drop below 70%, which is when you want to cut the strings anyway.

RPM Blast 18g is stiffer and thicker, and so the stiffness gives the feeling that the tension is maintained. Cyclone does loose tension and bite on a curve, but that's because it's not as stiff and has better feedback in my mind.

n.a.
Due to its narrow cross section of 1.15mm, this string is 5g lighter than most strings of 1.20-1.25mm diameter. I added back 5g to restore the balance of my racquet, and yet the power level was at best average. Cyclone 18L's spin was good, but I was expecting the thin gauge + shaped exterior to bite into the ball better than it did. Nothing wrong with this string, and little to get excited about.
