Head FXP Tour 16 String
Comments: I have one HEAD Youtek IG Prestige S strung with FXP Tour 16 at 53 lbs. The TW reviews are spot on.
Good pop on the ball but a much softer feel than the HEAD Sonic Pro 17 co-poly in my other Prestige S. It has a bit of that poly
pop and control, but definitely more power. I have to work a bit more in the stroke to generate spin with the FXP Tour 16 than
with the Sonic Pro 17, but the power increase with minimal loss of control was worth it. Will string at 56 lbs next time. I'm 57
years old and play at the 3.5-4.0 level.
Comments: FXP Tour is easy to string with some coiling but little friction. 55 lbs on a Babolat Pure Storm GT. It
seems easier on the arm than my other setup: Volkl Cyclone Tour 18 main at 42 lbs and Sensation crosses at 45 lbs, but it
provides less spin and more power. It plays much stiffer than the reported number, much like any other multi. Longevity is
decent, I get about five hits before significant fraying and loss of control. I'm a 4.0 senior all court one handed both ways.
Comments: I've been looking for a softer string due to my wrist problems. After reading the TW review, I figured
that for less than $9, it was definitely worth a try. I've played with the string several times and I'm sold. It has a nice soft string
bed, decent power, control and spin. I feel that the TW review is spot on. I normally play with the Technifibre X-One at 58 lbs but
at $18, it's way too expensive. The one thing that I did do different was to string the Head FXP Tour at 60 lbs for added control,
which seems to be just right. I've also used it as a hybrid set up using the Solinco Tour Bite Soft 17g for the mains and the X-one
for the crosses. Overall, it was a decent set up but I got much more pocketing with a full bed of the FXP Tour, which allowed me to
take bigger cuts at the ball.
Comments: Feels like hitting with butter -- the smoothest strings I have ever used. The feel is amazing and hits
that way too. I love everything about these strings from all areas of the court.
Comments: Decent power but limited spin and limited feel at 58 pounds tension. It also seemed a bit waxy to the
touch, sort of like waxed dental floss. Needless to say, I did not care for this string. It also moved around a lot and I was
readjusting the strings after every point.
Comments: This string is good for the modern baseline game. It has good power and comfort. However, it has
very little feel.
Comments: Great string for me. I use it in a hybrid setup. FXP in the crosses at 58lbs and Solinco Barbed Wire in the
mains @58lbs. Compliments the Solinco nicely since that's a pretty stiff string on its own. I get great spin, good durability and my
arm isn't soar after a match. Worth a try.
Comments: This string is good for the modern baseline player. It has good power and comfort. However, it has
very little feel.
Comments: These strings are an interesting cross between a poly and a multifilament. It's a good string for players
who love the performance of a poly but who may have arm issues. Don't expect full poly durability and performance, but you get
a softer, arm friendly string with some of the good poly characteristics. It's definitely worth a try, especially for the price.
Comments: These strings are the most flexible and best tension held poly strings
available. I'd use them in the mains if they came in a 17 or 18 gauge.
Comments: Tried this string for the first time today. After using Syn Gut this is my first time with a
different type of string. This string provided a really nice boost in power. Also it provided more spin. A really good
string for a decent price.
Comments: The best string 16 gauge that I have used. It has the best price and good durability. The only
issue is the color available (Black or Blue). I prefer white but is not standard for this set.
Comments: This is a very, very nice string. I like the power, comfort, control,
and pocketing. It is very sweet.
Comments: Great 16g string with power/control, comfort, bite, and durability. I use 16g off-season, as
I'm a string breaker. All court aggressive with my home at the net. I use Wilson NXT Tour 16/17g, Tecnifibre X-One
Biphase 16g, and Klip Excelerator 16g. For $10.50, this is now my 16g string of choice.
Comments: Ah, I love these strings. They offer so much power and comfort. I'm an offensive baseliner
and I usually dictate play with my power and angles but I was able to change it up and put on some drop shots as well.
