Designed for exceptional spin, Solinco Barb Wire 1.20 offers the greatest spin potential and features the same square profile geometry as the popular Tour Bite. In order to offer even greater spin potential, the string is subjected to an axially twisting procedure, increasing the surface roughness for increased grip. The result is that Barb Wire is the most spin friendly string in the line, while offering some interesting playing characteristics. The unique co-polyester construction combines excellent durability and resilience for power. Best suited to hard-hitting baseline players looking for maximum spin and durability without sacrificing all feel and power.
Construction: Co-polyester monofilament

Love the spin
I absolutely love this string. It definitely bites the ball. It has taken my kick serve to a new level. I highly recommend this string if you are looking for more spin. It is a poly, so expect it to feel a little dead. But, once you adjust to the feel you will love the spin you can generate. 3.5 player. Prince O3 Red at 62 lbs.

Love the spin and control this string has. It is extremely stiff and can be hard on the arm, however if you back off the tension it is much eaiser on the arm.

Love the control and spin, however can be hard on the arm. Suggest using the lower end of recomended stringig tension for your racket.
As a club 4.5 player I use top spin for many shots; this barbwire string grabs the balls like no other. It allows me to really power the ball and has a tremendous amount of control and feel as well.
If you use topspin, there is no other string Ive come across that performs like this.
Im a believer.
all around string
The string is all around and satisfactory, but I found the Sloinco Tour Bite power spin string to have more power and spin to get the job done.
