Description

Appropriately named after one of the world's deadliest predators, the new Dunlop Biomimetic Black Widow 17 will allow strong players to dictate and attack like never before.  In their first foray into the geometric string market, Dunlop brings a heptagonal, seven sided, profile to give players a lot of bite on the ball and excellent spin generation.  Black Widow uses a copolymer construction, which is able to give players impressive durability in a more player friendly package.  The high tensile strength extrusion process results in a highly durable string, while the copolymer mixture allows for increased feel and surprising amounts of power.  This string is perfect for the power baseliner who uses spin to dictate points with hard, heavy groundstrokes.  Due to the geometric nature of this string, durability will be slightly lower than round polyester strings, but the trade off comes back with the spin and power that can be generated.

Construction: Extruded copolymer monofilament
Color: Black
Gauge: 1.26mm

String with BITE!
5/5
I love this product! Dunlop has hit a home run with this amazing string! If you are looking for a poly type string with touch, durability, and enough BITE to tear the felt clear off the ball then this is the string for you!!

Good performance
4/5
This string performs as advertised. Good feel and spin. The only factor keeping it from being rated a 5 is durability.

Great String
5/5
This string lives up to its reputation for power and control. It has a nice soft sound when the ball hits and delivers great accuracy. It also looks pretty cool.

spin to win
5/5
This string will give you tremendous spin, depth, and control. With this string, i beat my opponent by wipping deep, high, tospin ground stroke. Balls will usually fly high and looks like it is going out and then the last moment, it drops. It then kicks and bounce high, cathcing the opponent off guard. Be warned, that this is not a powerful string. The power is generate by the hitter. This string forces you to hit the ball with follow through. if you do not have a good follow through, look eslewhere. Once you see the rewards of using good follow through, the hitting becomes so addicting. So addicting that i play too much and have had sore arms everyday.

Black Widow brings the spin
5/5
4.0 player and I play 2-3 times per week. Looking for more spin and better feel on volleys and this string does that for me. Played with this string since March 2012. Restrung racquets I play with 2 equally after 6 months with same string. No wear or fraying but they lost a little tension after 2 seasons of regular play. Lasting longer than my previous Big Banger. Overall great strings. I made the change to 17 gauge from 16 which also seemed to help.

Black Widow at low tensions
5/5
Dunlops Black Widow strings are my string of choice. Black Widow is much more arm-friendy than comparable offerings from Babolat, Luxilon, etc. However, to take advantage of the softness of this string you must go down in tension. I string my racquets Babolat Pure Drive Roddick at 42 lbs in the winter and 45 lbs in the summer. Trust me--youll still have control at these tensions but with added power and comfort. I get about 4-6 weeks out of these strings at these tensions before they go dead.

Black Widow Bite
4/5
I am very pleased with this string. It is easy to work with stringing. It gives a nice bite on the ball so you generate a bit more spin. I thought it would break easily but has not so far. My only complaint, it lasts a little longer than I expected.

Black Widow String
5/5
Dunlop Black Widow string is an excellent choice for all players. The string is very durable does not slide during play. Black Widow string also provides excellent spin and power on the ball. One of the best features of this string is it lasts a long time. These strings rarely break so you wont be restringing your racquet as often. I highly recommend this string to my students at our club. Try it, youll love the feel.

Black Widow String
5/5
This is the second time I have ordered the Black Widow string. I find it to be the best string I have used since I began playing tennis about ten years ago. It is very durable and I am able to get plenty of spin on the ball. Not enough spin was a problem for me before using the Black Widow string. I play with a Dunlop racquet and the combination of the of the two Dunlop products helps me to play my best! I plan to keep using this string for a long time. It is the best!

2/5
I am a 4.0 player and I hit with top spin - but still like to get some power on my shots. I recently purchased these strings and did not see either the power or the spin I was looking for. I found the string to be a little dead and lacking in bite. I had them taken out after playing with them twice wasted money. I went back to the Volkl Cyclone Tour.

black widow 17g
4/5
I liked the play of these strings, incredible bite and spin. They dont have the endurance as the previous strings I use. They are still worth it when you consider how much they change the spin dynamics. I string my own racquets so that helps. Im thinking of going to a thicker gauge. Overall Ive made the Black Widow my first choice string.
