Another unique offering from Alpha, Sphere 16 combines a multifilament core with rectangular shaped outerwraps to provide not only a responsive, soft response, but improved tension maintenance and durability. While the multifilament core allows for impressive elasticity, the geometric shaped outerwrap layer of Sphere 16 resists fraying. The rectangular fibers of the outerwrap provide increased strength for long-lasting playability. Our testing found that this string played best after a short break-in period allowed the power level to stabilize. In addition to being one of Alpha’s most powerful offerings, it is also one of the softest strings available. Designed for all-court players seeking ultimate playability, Sphere provides consistent feel and power from any area of the court.

Composition: Multifilament Core with an Octagonal Multifliament outer wrap

Color: White

Gauge: 16G/1.30mm

Length: 40 ft

Not bad at all.
3/5
I got a bunch of different strings free from Alpha when I bought a stringing machine. My dad is 67 years old and broke his luxilon strings and I strung his Wilson Sledge Hammer with this string because the normal multifiliments and then the small multifilimets in the center seemed like it would be a pretty good string thats really playable. I tried it and its pretty good, not the best, there is better but this string isnt bad. Matter of fact my dad likes it too and then beat me. I dont know about durability yet.

4/5
This is a review to follow up on this string. Durability was excellent! It lasted a full year in a racquet that breaks multifiliment strings very easy. They were notching, fraying, cut almost 3/4 of the way through and they still didnt break. Matter of fact I had to cut them out to put new strings in because I didnt think they were ever going to break. They are powerful strings and soft on the arm. Its a real playable string. If you dont have the money for Wilson NXT strings which I also love, go for these. I highly recommend them.

Sphere - special string power
5/5
Very special performance for almost a year for me - for this aggressive flat hitter, neutral grips, and a smaller 18X20 racket, this Alpha offering is a unique standout. Tried quite a few, thought a natty gut hybrid was pretty good, but then I heard of Sphere from someone who really knows his stuff. For those who like a lively powerful string with great touch in a low-medium powered frame that rules out most of todays technology, this multi is perfect. After a break in period, maybe a few days, it somehow settles into a very stable and lively feel. Two of my string jobs are going on 4 months with 3-5 days a week playing. Reasonable price, outstanding durability in a dense smallish string pattern and produces controllable power for this old school player. Great pocketing - stable power - a coating that keeps strings in place and a great price - its all there. Has brought my Prestige Pro alive - superb serving string - great pop. Real popular with other players in my large metro rec ar
