Description

Alien Black Diamond 17 generates "out of this world" spin and offers more feel than the original 16 gauge version. The standard co-polyester construction is taken to new heights thanks to the unique extrusion process that combines stretching and heating in order to align the chain polymer molecules into a single direction. This ensures consistent playability while the crosslinked mesh of chains increases durability and control. The most noticeable advantage of Black Diamond is that their synthesis process results in a polyester based string with exceptional retention, ensuring that the playability remains relatively constant throughout the life of the string. Our playtesters found that this string had a surprising amount of feel and control without feeling harsh. We feel that this string is best suited for advanced baseline players looking for a solid combination of precision and ball pocketing with lasting durability and consistency.

Construction: Monofilament Co-polyester
Color: Black
Gauge: 1.25mm

The best spin-friendly poly out there !
5/5
Ive used it for an year now. Started from 16, then changed to this 17. So far, my feeling is that its giving me much more spin with weirdly good control, and it feels much softer than other poly strings. According to the other guys across the net, its got this strange dip b4 the bounce, and push for the ball after bounce, that sets the pace faster than other strings Ive used Tourna blue 17, Gamma poly, Babolat RPM, etc... I tried 58, 60, and 62 lbs on my Babolat Pure Storm Tour. 58 lbs seems to be losing tension too fast after few days, ends up low 50s over about four days of playing. 60 and 62 lbs setups are almost identical, with 62 a bit more control initially, but 62 sits high 50s after couple of days, which is good. So tension maintenance is not really good with this string, but strangely, I got more spin on slackened stringbeds than with a newly strung racquet. As Andres review, this string does NOT move around, but it I think it moves around at the impact, just comes back fast a

absolutely amazing
5/5
I went into using this string with very little feedback about it, just wanting to try something different from everybody elseits not that popular. Hitting with is feels amazing. Doesnt feel like a poly string. You get amazing spin, feel and control out of this along with power! Ive played with Wilson revolve and babolat rpm blast, pro hurricane, pro hurricane tour, ect.. but this is the best feeling poly out of all of them. Would definitely recommend this string!!
