BABOLAT Pro Hurricane Tour 17g Strings
Our staff has not reviewed this product yet.
Further advancing their copolyester products, the Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17 provides players with some extra spin in exchange for some durability compared to its 16 gauge version. The string offers a number of innovations over previous polyester based strings. The first thing to notice over standard polyesters is that this string is made of different blocks of polyester which are combined and extruded to exhibit unique characters than each makeup would alone. In the case of Pro Hurricane Tour, the result is a string that offers greater flexibility, which makes the string process easier as well as providing additional comfort during play due to increased ball pocketing. This string also holds its tension better than typical polyester strings, again thanks to the combination of properties that is possible with the co-poly construction. The octagonal profile of this string helps to generate additional spin by allowing the strings to bite the ball more during the additional pocketing. Pro Hurricane Tour also features a silicone coating, which helps durability by lessening friction as the strings move across each other during play. All of these features combine to create a string fit for the heavy spin, power baseliner of today's game. Recommended for strong players seeking durability and spin, with a touch of extra comfort.
Construction: Extruded co-polyester monofilament

Great string for babolat pure drive full bed @ 60lbs. It just does not get any better. If you have a pure drive try it. Not a hard poly on arm. Like it way better than rpm blast or comfort etc. Florida 4.5 player

Ever since I switched to this string my overall game has improved by leaps and bounds. I like the performance so much that I bought extra strings and gave them to my tennis buddies. More spin, more control and a lot more power!

First off looks great on aeropro drive. It has great spin but not as much as RPM. i got the 17 because i wanted a little more comfort. The stencil will come off with polyester but you cant really do anything about it. great lively feel. doesnt die out at all! great power and helps keeps shots spiny and deep from the baseline
excellent power and spin

I've been looking for a string that would last a bit longer than 2 weeks for my son's racket Wilson BLX 95 16x18 for quite sometime until he suggested to try this string. Since polyester is hard on the arm I had him strung it to the main frame at 55 lbs and used Gamma TNT2 RX 16g on cross at 53 lbs. I have notice more power on his shots and a lot more spin on the ball. He likes this hybrid set up and seems like it is soft enough that he never complain any elbow pain and the cross string dont break easy which last for a little over 3 wks.
Amazing Strings at a great price!

These strings are great for players that enjoy using lots of spin. Great for topspin and power.
Pro Hurricane Tour 17 strings
User: Rodney Parsons, CA
These strings are great in a hybrid setup. I like them on the mains around mid tension with a softer string on the crosses. Good power, spin and durability for a 17 gauge. They are also good full bed, but lower the string tension a few pounds less that for a nylon synthetic gut.
Pro Hurricane Tour and Live Wire Together
User: Tom DeRose, WA
Based on the recommendation of a club pro, I strung my racquet with a combination of Bobalot Pro Hurricane Tour and Gamma Live Wire. The combination provides strength and great action on the ball. The folks I usually play with are complaining that I am getting way more action on the ball--both in serves and in-play hits. Great string combination. And I seem to be able to hit harder with less effort--not sure how that happens, but Im pleased with these strings.
pro hurricane tour 17g strings
User: andy pham, California
the pro hurricane 17g strings were perfect. My shots were more precise and sharp. I can feel and control every shot. Id recommend this string type for any tennis player that wants leverage and control.
It didn't make it
User: Jing, VA
Well, it could just be my bad luck, or a lack of proper QA from the manufacturer, but before I finished stringing it @58lbs on my Boris Becker Pro, it broke. And I don't think it had anything to do with damage during stringing, as I have done the string job so many times.

I'm really enjoying the performance of these strings. What was really great was being able to learn about which string I should get on the Tennis Express website, so I got the perfect strings for me. My game has improved with this new racquet and strings.
User: Tommy, Texas
These strings are the best for power hitters. At the right tension, these strings can be really deadly. It gives great spin to those that really need it. It can dramaticly change your playing.
User: Andrew, Texas
These strings will change your game, in a good way. They help you provide deadly power and spin, the perfect string for big hitters like myself, who like spinning alot as well. Overall, one of the best strings around the market these days.
