Very peculiar string

The coil will create for you a birds nest right out of the package. This is a very brittle string with a tendency to crimp during regular handling. This could be a plus for one using a floating clamp system as it holds well routing through adjacent grommets. Playability: offers good spin, power and comfort. The feel is below average, and the durability way below average.

Looks like I've found a new string.

Extremely easy on the arm for a firm hitting polyester string, and I've had a recurring shoulder/arm injury for years.

Low power, strong bite... perfect

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.

Dunlop Black Widow 16

First time user, great bite, ample power and control. Easy on the elbow and shoulder, so far so good!
