Top Spin Tennis View: Nathan's view - I previously tried out this string at my usual tension and I found it to be really tough on my wrist. So this time I had it 5lbs lower. Both times I have found the string to be very controlled. It allows me to comfortably pick places I want to hit on court and hit the exact spot. The other massive benefit I had with these was generating extra spin, which is great for a player who tends to over-hit the ball as the spin brings it back into court. Overall I really like this string but not recommended for anyone with arm injures (unless in hybrid form).
