Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour Strings
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.
It didn't make it
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.
pro hurricane tour 17g strings
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.
Pro Hurricane Tour and Live Wire Together
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 17 strings
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.
Amazing Strings at a great price!
These strings are great for players that enjoy using lots of spin. Great for topspin and power.
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.
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
Pro Hurricane Tour
I changed to the 17g recently and have had excellent results. Its shipped quickly and arrives on time.

Good hit tin strings
I just love the way these strings hit. I highly recommend.Ive been using this type of string for 6 years now and have never been disappointed!
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!
hurricaine 17 guage strings
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
good string but not for me
The next time I string with Pro Hurricane I will remember to drop the tension. It is a bit hard on my elbow. Other than that, it is fine.
