Test Conditions Tension Racquet
51/49 lbs Völkl DNX 9 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
If you hit the ball well then you get enormous power, but on slightly off-center hits or slow hits, power is rather low. Control is good. Feel is a bit muted and stiff. Spin is very good.

For me this is rather a control oriented string. In combination with the DNX9 it causes me pain in my arm. But since I have a sensitive arm, this may not necessarily apply to other players.

Played indoors with Dunlop Fort TP balls. This string provides less power than the 1.19 mm version. Still power is sufficient. I like the soft feel of this string.

String Klip Lightning 16/16
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/53 lbs Völkl DNX 9 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I'm not a fan of the Klip Legend, but this hybrid surprised me. While the Legend felt very stiff for me in a full stringbed, it felt much nicer in this hybrid.
I had the Legend in the mains and the Excellerator in the crosses.
The combo provides lots of power and moderate control. Comfort and feel are great.

String Solinco Hyper-G 18
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
49/46 lbs Völkl DNX 9 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Due to the gauge I strung 4 lbs lower compared to my standard setup in order to maintain some elasticity.
Played indoors with Dunlop Fort balls.
The string provides a nice soft touch which worked well in combination with the DNX9. Control and comfort were also good. Only drawback was the moderate power.
Definitely worth a test.

Due to the gauge I strung 4 lbs lower compared to my standard setup in order to maintain a certain elasticity.
Played indoors with Dunlop Fort balls.
The string feels a bit stiff in this setup. Control was good, power was also okay. Could have been more for my likes. Touch suffers from the stiffness. Comfort was sufficient for me.
