NXT 16

If it was durable, it would be a 5. Can’t have everything I suppose! Can’t imagine the short lifespan of the 17 gauge.

NXT comfort 16 is a great string. I can hit hard with lots of spin. My topspin lobs bounce 8' high and still land in the court! I play on several USTA teams and find this string very dependable. I was able to really get a great deal in June, 2015 on five sets. Thanks for the great offer and service by your employees.

I buy this in the multi pack

I swing fast and hit hard. hard flat serve. I find that when I use other strings, my elbow hurts the next day. for some reason, I believe what they advertise, "takes 70% of the vibration out compared to other gut" I absolutely love this string. I keep extra packs in my bag and always start a new season restringing all my racquets with NXT 16.
