Good string for spin doctors.

It put my own strings. This product is kind of hard to put on, but once on your strings' bed is really good for spin and control.

Disappointed...but still happy enough

I've played the Black Widow strings for about a month now...perhaps 50 hours of play time. I really thought I'd like these strings better than I do. When I first began playing them I noticed great "bite" but they turned into ordinary poly quite quickly. I have been stringing all my rackets with poly for the past few years and after maybe 8 hours of play I saw little difference between the Black Widow and other polys. I also am a little disappointed in the "feel"; I purchase 17 ga and expected better ball response and control. With all this said, the strings are still serviceable after a fair amount of play and the initial price is really quite good. I wouldn't dissuade anyone from buying Black Widow but don't expect any miracles in your game because of them.

Dunlop Black Widow

The Dunlop Black Widow is a very special string with its pentagonal design. It literally bites into the ball as you hit leaving a mark just as a real black widow spider does in nature. I would highly recommend this string to anyone looking for extra spin and the quality of the string.
