A massive update to the popular SilverString, the new WeissCANNON Black5Edge 17G/1.24mm offers a number of incredible properties explaining why it receives such high praise. Building on the original chemical composition of SilverString, this string is reinforced with fluorcarbon elements and chemical additives so control the playing properties for maximum performance. Black5Edge 1.24 is extruded through a pentagonal dye and then surface treated to ensure consistent and sharp edges for easy spin generation. The surface treatment is designed to allow the strings to move across each other with minimal friction, which helps to generate additional spin and opens the stringbed for a bit of extra power as well. These surprisingly soft co-polyester strings also hold tension extremely well, ensuring maximum performance over the life of the string. Black5Edge is recommended for any player seeking a versatile, soft, durable string that offers everything: spin, control, power, and comfort.

Construction: Monofilament co-polyester
Color: Black
Gauge: 1.24mm
Length: 660' / 200m

Black5 Edge String
5/5
This is a great string. Its got crisp volleys, good spin and great control. This is the best Weiss Canon string Ive tried so far.

Good Spin, frequent restringing
4/5
I bought a 17g reel because I loved the Weiss Scorpion 1.22 strings and was hoping to get enhanced performance. Im currently trying to find the right tension, because the strings are alittle stiff. Spin is good from the baseline and on serve. After about 12 hours of hitting, the strings move quite abit and seem to go dead. Also braking more of these vs. the scorpions 1.22. For the price, I wished I tried a few others before committing to a reel.

Good, inexpensive co-poly
4/5
I was using Tecnifibre Black Code and decided to give this string a try. When freshly strung, the two strings are very comparable. Soft on the arm. Good spin production. Better feel than Tecnifibre Red Code or WC Scorpion or Silverstring. My main gripe about Black5Edge: I wish this string held tension a little bit longer. I usually end up cutting them out after about 5 sessions on the court. However, I have had the same issue with the other co-poly strings also.

I played with the Weisscannon Scorpion my previous go to string and decided to try the Black 5 edge to add a bit of spin to my game. Top spin groundies are amazing and my friends are left flat footed at the added spin on my kick and second serves. I previously played with the RPM and I like the livelier feel of this string, it honestly feels closer to a multifilament than a copoly.
