String WeissCANNON Ultra Cable 1.23

You can't get more spin from a string than this. It provides unbelievable spin potential like no other string I have played so far. Absolutely top class. Very good power and control too.
In contrast to some other reviews that mentioned stringing problems I did not have any particular issues during stringing, maybe just a bit harder to string but not dramatically.
Highly recommendable for young hard hitters that rely on heavy spin.

Great poly. Compared to the Focus Hex, the Ultra does everything a bit better, including comfort. Spin is excellent. There is no real weakness. Highly recommendable, even for players with flat strokes.

String Polyfibre Tour Player Rough 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
46/44 lbs Pro Kennex Ki Q Tour 295 (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Really nice string. Contrary to the recommendation on the package, I would not reduce the tension by 15%. Tension loss was rather bad, but that is the only drawback. Directly after stringing DT 34. After around 5 hours of play down at DT 29 but now remaining constant.
Otherwise an outstanding string, among the best I have tried in the past few years. It provides excellent control. On clean hits, power is huge. Also comfort is very good. The rough surface provides very good spin.
I will also try the normal Tour Player and write a review.
Thanks to Polyfibre for the sample.

String Yonex Poly Tour Fire 1.25

The string feels very crisp and direct. As it is rather low-powered, you need to be able to generate the power yourself. Control is very good on the other end. Very predictable. Great spin for a round string. If the Poly Tour Pro is too spongy or unprecise, then you should try the Poly Tour Fire.
Comfort is sort of okay but not as good as with Poly Tour Pro. Still overall I prefer the Poly Tour Fire due to the improved precision. The Poly Tour Pro is too powerful for me. Definitely a great string.

The Hyper-G is a very good string with great spon potential, excellent power, while still providing control on a high level. The string seemed significantly softer than the Solinco Tour Bite. I did not have any arm problems.
I really like the green color.
Recommendable string! Thanks to Solinco Germany for the sample.

The MSV Focus-Hex Plus 25 plays significantly more comfortable than the normal Hex. Spin is on the same level. Power level seemed higher. I especially liked the soft feel. Would prefer this string over the normal Hex in any case.

I'm really happy with this string. In general, I prefer round polys, and the Silverstring is definitely one of my favorites.
I had great power and consistent control. Since I hit rather flat, I cannot really rate the spin potential, as it is not really relevant for me.
Tension maintenance was very good too. I really enjoyed hitting with this string. Great feedback.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.

I liked the string. Excellent spin potential. No string movement. I have played it for 6 hours now and it still holds up great. Great choice for string breakers. Control is very good too. Comfort is okay but you should not string it above 21 kg, otherwise it will be too stiff.
Overall a recommendable string.

Good spin potential and excellent tension stability.

String Prince Beast XP 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
51/49 lbs Prince EXO3 Tour Team (MP, 16/18)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
For me the Beast XP is currently the best poly on the market. It provides everything you could want from a good string. Comfort, spin, power, touch and control. Even at low tensions there is no string movement and you don't have that trampoline effect as with other strings. Comfort is really good for a poly. I did not have any arm problems with this string although I do have a very sensitive arm.
It would be great if this string was offered in another color though. Let's see... :-)
