String Big Star Styx 1.18
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/55 lbs Head YouTek IG Extreme OS (OS, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic Gamma machine.
Played with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls at various temperatures.
Stringing was tedious due to the structure of the string, but it's worth it.
Despite its profile the string provides great tension maintenance (measured with ERT), and durability is very good despite the thin gauge.
This is an extraordinary string which I will add to my portfolio for clients who are looking for a spin friendly string.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic Gamma machine.
Stringing was no fun due to the string's profile.
Played with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls at various temperatures.
Overall an interesting, polarizing string. I found that durability and spin stood out. However I had to get used to its feel, did not quite like it.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample of this very unique string.

Compared to the Gamma Moto, the Hyper-G provides a bit better spin and power, but less control. The Gamma is more balanced overall.

String Kirschbaum Max. Power Rough 1.20
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/53 lbs Head YouTek IG Extreme OS (OS, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic Gamma machine. Played at various temperatures with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.
A bit harder to string due to the string's texture. Overall a string without drawbacks, very balanced. The name of the string is misleading - it is not a power string. But perfect for players hitting with lots of power as it provides very good control.
The "spiky" texture does not enhance spin as much as I had expected.
Clear recommendation for all players looking for a very good, balanced, classic string.
