Comments: I use a Kfactor 90 and BLX 90 which are relatively stiff compared to other racquets. My arm has been feeling bad; however, I used this string and it gives me great feel during impact. Really soft feeling as well as really close to the gut feeling. The feeling is totally a plus for anyone uses this string to play. Durability is not too good which is pretty obvious since it is soft multi. After probably four times hitting heavy, the string start to peel off the outermost layer. But it will still hold for a couple of more time until only few thing fibers hold there. It is the best string I ever hit and if you don't mind the cost, go for it.

Comments: I strung a full set at 58 lbs on my Head Graphene Radical Pro and it feels wonderful. I got 13 hours of solid hitting before they broke.

Comments: I loved the string while it lasted. However, the string only lasted me about 3 days of hitting... About 10- 12 hrs. I expected it to be more durable.

Comments: Strung at 68lbs on my Yonex RQIS tour 1, I found this string to be a perfect match for my style of play. It is durable, and offers a lot of spin. Before I used Wilson NXT 16, and once I made the switch I haven't looked back.

Comments: In order for live wire to be durable you have to put them in the crosses. Otherwise put a fork in them.

Comments: I tried these strings on the mains strung at 58, with ALU power rough on the crosses at 54 of my k- factor six one tour. The feel was ok (i.e., nothing exceptional), but NO DURABILITY....they broke in less than 3 hours. I am a 4.5- 5.0 player.

Comments: I am a junior player and these strings are great. Their feel is comfortable in all aspects of the game. These do tend to fray in about a month but overall I love them!

Comments: This strings are wonderful. I love their feel and durability. I know a lot of people who play with these too and they all agree that they are well worth the money.

Comments: Love these strings. I am a serve/volley player but I believe this string will be better for baseline players who want some extra pop and more spin. This string lacks a little touch on volleys but makes up for it in all the other categories.

Comments: I have been using these strings at a very competitive level for about a year now and they feel great. You get the power and the feel of natural gut. Mine wear or break within a month or so, but that is from playing a lot. Overall, they are a great buy.
