String Blindtest String15 1.25  blind test
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
49/49 lbs Topspin TPC 1000 (MP)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a. n.a.
Strung in one piece without problems with ATW pattern and played in indoor on clay court at temperature around 10° C.
I am very sorry because the string was broken after 30 minutes of play.
However I'm quite pleased with this string because I had nice touch during impact and low vibrations. The string had good ball bite and supported spin generation, good balance of power/elasticity. The control did not give me excellent impression.
I would call this string comfortable and it looks like a good syngut, suitable for young top spin players.

Spin was not signifcantly better than with the MSV Focus Hex. The important differences are the power and the elasticity.

Excellent! In contrast to its sisters the Savage (black) maintains its tension very well until its "natural death". It provides good topspin and slice and the control is well balanced. It also provides good feel on the volley. Overall an excellent string in all aspects, also in the price. Strong competition for Tecnifibre Black Code!

Strung in one piece in ATW UKRSA stringing method without problems despite the twisted texture.
Played on indoor clay court at around 11°C with Head ATP standard balls.
The string's profile grabs the ball very well on topspin and slice. Decent power, little feel. It started to quickly lose its elasticity and the control is lost, and after 4-5 hours of play I experienced vibrations to my arm. Due to this and the very quick initial tension loss I was forced to stop the test. I have to admit I was disappointed by this string.

String Isospeed Axon multi 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
51/53 lbs Wilson KBlade 98 (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (5 hrs.)
I liked the Axon multi much better than the Axon mono, even despite I use monofilament strings most of the time.
The transparent wrap that protects the internal structure is very interesting. The best feature is control, but what amazed me the most was the good amount of top spin and well balanced power. Feel is good too. Innovative and very interesting
for top spin players looking for comfort: the string doesn't move, it looks just like a monofilament!
From my point of view, the only negative thing is that it loses tension very quickly, just like any other Isospeed string.
In short, a very good string that is similar to Luxilon M2. It would be very interesting to have it in reels as well.

n.a. n.a.
No problem while stringing, I used an UKRSA RTW pattern and tested the
string on clay court at around 29°C using Wilson Australian Open balls.
Crisp feel at impact - and soft at the same time - with good initial elasticity despite the monofilament structure.
It is little powerful, little reactive to top spin shots and with little feeling that didn't satisfy me as much as it did at the beginning.
After one and a half hour of play (match and practice) I verified a good tension maintenance but the string became rigid and 'boring' and I have interrupted the test.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability

I have had some problems during stringing because it was not easy to weave. I used an ATW UKRSA method and I have not problems with knots. I have tested outdoors on red clay at approx. 17° C and 70% humidity. As Nikita Original that I had the honour to test, the Nikita Red Star has shown an excellent power/control ratio, good spin and no string movement. Unfortunately it lacks comfort and feel and the string seemed "dead" quickly and I felt some pain in my arm so I had to terminate the test. Therefore I cannot provide a judgement on the durability.
Conclusion: Excellent powerful string suitable for topspin players looking for control and not feel.

 (9 hrs.)
Strung in one piece without problems. Played indoors on clay court at around 16°C with Babolat VS N2 standard balls.
I have played five singles matches (5 hours) and two doubles matches (4 hours).
The string maintains its tension pretty well and has very good playing characteristics: good power and good control, great for topspin players. I prefer the string over the Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power because it has a fantastic price/quality ratio and the difference in control and spin was not that significant.
I would not call this string comfortable but suitable for extreme topspin players.

String Pacific Premium Power X 16

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.  (6 hrs.)
Strung in two pieces without problems.
Played indoors on clay court at around 13°C with Head ATP standard balls.
Very good performance during the first five hours of play: power, control, feel and little tension loss (good surprise for me, I'm used to play monofilaments). Normal string movement, not suitable for heavy top spin players. I expected above all more comfort.
I cut out the string after six hours of play because the performance, despite the good tension stability, had decreased significantly, or at least the performance did not satisfy my expectations, above all the control. The price is not negligible either.
