String Rating (Hide Explanation)

Many manufacturers are now quoting values for various characteristics of their strings. These characteristics cannot be taken in isolation as any particular restring should take into account several different factors. The most common characteristics are:

  • Comfort - how comfortable (touch, feel) are the strings to play with?
  • Durability - how long can you expect the string to last before breaking?
  • Spin - is the string designed to help with spin production?
  • Power - how powerful is the string?

Where the manufacturer doesn't quote figures for these characteristics, we have inserted our own, based on our experience and comparing with other similar strings.

Please note that as these ratings are manufacturer based, they may not represent an accurate comparison between brands.

Each set of ratings refers to only one gauge of the particular string as the rating will be different per gauge. This is indicated by the text "(Ratings refer to xx variant)" after the ratings.

Our own tester has given the following feedback:

  • 10/10 for power - strung up at 47lbs, the strings gave effortless power from the racket
  • 8/10 for durability - played well for 6-8 hours, but you could notice a loss of tension more than the testers normal Yonex Poly Tour Air
  • 10/10 for comfort - was very comfortable to play with - recomend low tensions around 44lbs
  • 7/10 for spin - less spin generated than other polys so would suite a flatter hitter
  • 7/10 for tension maintenance - playable for 6-8 hours then needed restringing

All in all an impressive string especially for aggressive baseliners. The string felt good on all shots as it firms up on fast swings to provide more control. Being a heavy topspin player, I would like more spin production from the string.

It is very easy to string with - feels soft and doesn't notch easily.
