Comments: First, let start by saying I’m NOT a heavy hitter. String broke the very first time I used them on my Pro Kennex KM 175 FFT (tension 33lbs). Very disappointed, going back to Ektelon Strings.

Comments: Great string for the money.  I'm not a string breaker but have had great durability with this string and love the playability.  A great upgrade from factory strings to add a little pop to any racquet.

Comments: Great string all the way around. The only thing is that 17gauge is going to break on the higher level players fairly quickly, but this is also true with all 17gauge string. If having too many breaks, than switch over to 16gauge. I break my strings often, but the playability of 17gauge string I believe is worth it.

Comments: I bought 2 packs, one for me and one for a friend. My friend however broke these strings in exactly 2 weeks time. He's an A level player and a hard hitter, so if you hit hard and are above C level, I suggest getting the Ashway Killfire 16.
