      Comments about Dunlop Black Widow 16:

      I swing hard. Probably too hard. I want my string to give me control and spin, and zero added power. After using RPM Blast on a new racquet for a couple of matches (the shop didn't offer Black Widow with new racquet string jobs), I cut it off and went back to Black Widow. Ahhh, much better! Low power and great grab on the ball. Like all polys, it is a bit tough to string because of its coil retention. And it also will rub your fingers raw if you're not careful, due to the sharp edges on the string. But I ordered 12 packs of it when it went on sale. I string it in a hybrid setup - this on the mains, and a synethic gut on the crosses. String around 58 lbs.

          Comments about Dunlop Black Widow 16:

          The Dunlop Black Widow 16 is an awesome string. I have it strung on a Wilson Pro.Team BLX Fx 103 at 55lbs. It's very comfortable and has very good power! The spins it creates are just insane! The tennis balls just drop like a sack of potatoes! Regarding durability, I've about 10 hours of playing time, and the string still feels fresh, but with a little of tension lost, which is natural for a co-poly but is no big deal. I highly recommend the Dunlop Black Widow 16(the 17 g version probably plays even better, but have not tried it yet)
