String Oehms Black Pearl 1.18
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/57 lbs Dunlop Aerogel 2Hundred 16x19 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I've used a lot of polys, expensive ones and cheap ones, but the Black Pearl is a great string for the price. All the characteristics (durability, spin potential, feel, comfort) are up there with other polys which cost up to 4 times as much.

Thumbs up for the Pacific PMX 16L. Very easy to string. Great feel and comfort during play. Normally I'm not good at volleying but I was able to control the volleys quite well.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability

Compared to the Alu Power 1.25, the Rough version provides a bit better comfort, otherwise both versions play equal. However I don't think that the price difference to the MSV Focus Hex 1.23 is justified.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (10 hrs.)
Compared to the 1.25 mm version, the Topspin Cyber Flash 1.20 provides a bit more power, but less durability. If you hit with heavy topspin, the string notches quite quickly. But still a great string for the price.

String Polyfibre TCS 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/57 lbs Dunlop Aerogel 2Hundred 16x19 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (15 hrs.)
After playing the MSV Co-Focus 1.18 for half a year, I tried the Polyfibre TCS 1.25.
No problems during stringing.
Played on clay with ARP S-TU balls.
Compared to the Focus, the TCS provides less power, less feel, and less spin.
Nevertheless the TCS is a solid string that is up there with other top polys.
I found the control very convincing.

String RAJ Poly-Twist 1.23
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
57/57 lbs Dunlop Aerogel 2Hundred 16x19 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
The string's behavior during stringing was similar to the MSV Focus Hex and the Signum Pro Plasma HEXtreme.
During playtest it turned out that the string moved more than the above reference string. I also had the impression that the string notches more easily. Nevertheless I'm satisfied with this string. The Poly Twist is a string that every poly player should test. I would give it a B- grade overall.

String Babolat VS Tonic+ Ball Feel 16
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/57 lbs Dunlop Aerogel 2Hundred 16x19 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
After extensive poly testing I finally tried natural gut from Babolat. You have to be more careful during stringing than with polys, but if you pre-stretch the string, you will take away some of the recoil memory.
Playability and comfort are of course excellent, only the durability is not sufficient for me.

String MSV Co-Focus 1.23
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
57/57 lbs Dunlop Aerogel 2Hundred 16x19 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (15 hrs.)
I previously played the red MSV Focus Hex 1.23 and now tried the "round" version. I'm really happy with this string. It does not fully reach up to the Hex but it's easy to string and provides good characteristics in all categories.
For topspin players like me I would recommend the Hex.

String MSV Focus - HEX® 1.23

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability

I'm really satisfied with this string. I was able to test the HEX on my favorite surface (clay) and it performed great in all aspects. The major advantages of this string are tension stability and spin. I tested the light blue color.

String Oehms Black Pearl 1.23
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/57 lbs Babolat Pure Storm Team (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Highly recommendable at the low reel price. Strings like any other poly, no problems here. The Black Pearl 1.23 gets a "good" rating in all categories. Definitely on the same level as Poly Plasma, MSV Co-Polymo Focus, or Topspin Cyber Flash. Certainly worth a test for people who want to try something new.
