              I think that this string are really good,full of power and easy to strigs,but the down side is that the string notch very quit in full set, but it you hybrid with a strings that won't cause too much of the friction it will probably help.it doesn't change whether is all alone in main or cross the half will must performance well with another string of your choice. It broked after 3 match game on the top from serving, I do really swing hard this with a full set.

              If you break strings often you might want to give this a try. It's lively, has good feel, the 17g version creates some good spin. It has to be cut out of the racket long before it breaks.

                    I am a 4.0 player utilizing both spin and power. My grip is semi-western. My racquet is a Wilson Prostaff (90") and use 62 Lbs of tension in the summer. With other polyesters I would break the strings after only four or five 3 set matches. These strings last for about 10 matches and I usually remove them if they have not broken by then. I did go back to other brands a couple of times but I instantly would feel the strings were dead. These are the very best.
