For the player seeking a soft, comfortable feel and a lot of power, the new Dunlop Biomimetic Silk 17 comes complete with a natural gut like feel. Slightly thinner than the 16 gauge version of the string, this one will provide a bit more power and spin, but will see reduced durability.  The entire Biomimetic line is designed by studying natural evolutionary designs and applying them to products for tennis. Silk is aptly named after one of the world's softest and strongest natural fibers, and does not disappoint. The Pure DuPont PA66 multifilament central core results in a generous sweetspot, and excellent power. Using small fibers bonded with thermo elastic PU resin makes this string feel extremely soft and comfortable. The closest synthetic to natural gut in the Dunlop line, this is a good string for the player looking for gut's comfort, but at a much reduced price tag. Featuring a bonded polymer outer coating to reduce friction between strings, the string will have enhanced durability as well as increased spin generation. Silk is a perfect string for players with arm discomfort, as well as anyone seeking a large sweetspot with power and feel. 

Construction: Multifilament polyamide
Color: Natural
Gauge: 1.25mm

OK string

I am always looking for a soft, comfortable string that is spin friendly and predictable. This string partially fits the bill. It is soft but that comes at a cost; there isnt as much feel as I would like. Spin production is good. I have played with more comfortable strings. Considerable tension loss after about four sets.

Been using Dunlop 17g Silk for several yrs now. Does provide a natural feel upon impact. Holds tension well& can produce significant spin. Well pleased w/this string.

I recently 5-16-12 bought some Dunlop Strings for a new Dunlop racket that I bought at the same time. It has been only about a month but the strings have held up fine. The strings and racket have felt good on my shoulder, elbow and wrist. I play 3-4 times weekly. I string my racket at 55 lbs and the strings do move aroung alot. that is my only problem so far. I will try to write again after a couple more months to see how long the strings last. j.t. Howell

I have always prefered playing with 17 gauge, but over the last few years have not found one that is soft and has power as well. I like the feel of the string and it does not hurt my arm, but maintains the power and control that I like.
