Comments: This string is very soft. Great feel and low power. Softer than NXT, NRG2, Quasi-gut, multi-feel and Sensation. After 2 hours of play though, they move around a lot and notch making the durability the weakest characteristic. One set of string will usually last me 3 hours of hard hitting. For the time they are on the racquet though I love them.

Comments: Soft, less-powerful strings. Excellent for sore shoulders, elbows and wrists. Very playable strings.

Comments: This string has worked fine for my game which is primarily focused on hitting groundstrokes. Both the Silk 16 and 17 strings have given me a better feel when I hit my groundstrokes so I intend to use this string for several years. I believe these Dunlop silk strings are "sleepers" because not many of us know how good they are.

Comments: Very happy with this string. Plays identical to Donnay Micron 17. Very soft -- strung best in a tight string pattern 95 square inch head racquets or smaller. Great feel and touch. Softer than NXT, Sensation, X-One, and a touch softer than NRG2.

Comments: I am quite disappointed with this string. It plays stiff and moves a lot. Everything about it is just mediocre; spin is so so, the power to my surprise was also rather low. On the bright side it seems durable - I have not seen a sign of fraying after 3 hours of heavy blasting. I compared it full bed at 58lb with Technifibre NRG2 17 in two of my Volkl Powerbridge 10 Mid and Technifibre outperforms it in every aspect. I have another set left, so will try it in a hybrid, but for the money there are many better premium multis out there.
