Gosen AK Control 17 String

Comments: Strung this up at 62 lbs in my Prince 03 Red. Frankly, it feels like a semi-firm nylon and moves a lot right out of the gate. And the power this string generates is almost uncontrollable taking a full swing even at 62 pounds. Not impressed.

Comments: I bought a set of these but wasn't sure about them. I gave them to a friend for him to try on his new Pro Staff 85. His described this string as "awesome". I will buy some more.

Comments: Very bitey, yet still soft. I used it on a Head Prestige MP as the mains with Luxilon ALU Rough. It's a dream to hit with.

Comments: I hybrided these with polylon ice in the crosses. These strings played more like a mix between a synthetic gut and a multifilament. It didn't have the power or softness of a multifilament but it made up for in durability. I felt that one needs a fairly fast swing speed in order to fully bring out the potential. When do so, the strings responded very well creating great depth and good amounts of spin.
