I really like this string, it's easy on the arm while still providing the kind of spin only a poly can provide. My only problem is with finding the exact right tension. I have come to the conclusion that with certain racquets and string there are going to be magic tensions that really bring out the qualities in the string. For instance on my new BLX 95 18820, I have a little lead in the head and some to balance in the grip. However, one set I strung at 55 and hated it, but moved up to 58 on the next string job and there was the magic. So, you can take that theory or not, either way this is a very solid string for an 18g poly.
