Description

With the greatest spin potential of the Tornado family, Signum Pro Tornado 1.17 offers an updated molecular optimization on the popular Poly Plasma. The excellent spin generation of this string is aided by the heptagonal (7-sided) shape along with the axial twisting which increases the amount of ball bite that is possible. The new co-polyester formulation for Tornado increases its elasticity for greater comfort and power than typically polyester strings. Signum suggests stringing Tornado around 10% lower than your normal string due to the enhanced tension maintenance. The string is recommended for strong baseline players that want spin and power from a durable string.

Construction: Co-polyester monofilament
Color: Anthracite
Gauge: 1.17mm

Great Bite
5/5
The Tornado has very good bite of the ball, reasonable power, it is a little stiff however. I have strung it with natural gut in a hybrid combination. So far feels pretty good. I will check in later with durability comments.

great string for mains in hybrid
5/5
Ive tried several co-polys or polys, including MSV Focus Hex, SPPPP, and Technifibre Black Code, as the main string in a hybrid stringing arrangement and imo Tornado beats them all. It has great feel, good pocketing, and excellent durability. I wish it were a bit cheaper but even at $15 a pack it is still worth it.

great string
5/5
This is a great string that provides lot of control and spin. Ive got it strung at 63lbs in my Dunlop tour 400 and couldnt be happier. I also have technifibre black code strung in the exact same same racquet with the same tension and they are nearly identical. I couldnt tell which string I was playing with and would go with either.

Tornado 1.17 Tennis String
4/5
Player profile: 4.0 baseline player. Head Microgel Radical OS 18x19 pattern. Previously tried Tecnifibre X-one biphase 17g @58 lbs; Luxilon BB ALU Power Rough 16g @40lbs; Signum Pro Tornado 18g 1.17mm @44 lbs for the same level of power. The Tornado is relatively not easy for stringing work because it coils. It is a bit softer than Luxilon Power Rough. I would say Luxilon Power Rough and Signum Tornado are more spin-capable than Technifibre X-one biphase due to string bed pocketing for the same amount of power producing. The Signum Pro Tornado 18g 1.17mm holds the position as good as Luxilon Power Rough 16g but not to my satisfaction. I will switch to Signum Pro Tornado 17g 1.23mm next time which holds the string in positin the best. 17g version is as spin-friendly and has better tension stability. I dont test durabilty because I cut string off when the strings become dead failed to snap back to posiion.

Great string
5/5
Even though it is the most expensive string I use I think Tornado is well worth the money. It has great feel at the net while providing good spin and power. I am a 4.0 player using a Head Microgel Radical OS with Tornado strung at 46 lbs and I guess because I hit a flat shot and dont hit that hard as I almost never break strings. As a result, Tornado seems to stay in playable condition for me for a very long time over many probably 40 to 50 hours of play.
