I will restring and test the string as soon as it arrives!
Watch this space!
Ok the reel of Poly Star Classic is here !
Poly Star's spiel:
POLY STAR CLASSIC is a monofilament, co-polyester all round tennis string. Continuously improved in the last 30 years with proven performance. Weather resistant and particularly durable thanks to the special preparation process, which reduces the friction intensity at the crossing points in the stringing grid and thereby increasing the durability. The elastic characteristic of natural gut strings has been integrated into our Classic’s attributes. The POLY STAR CLASSIC, like all POLY STAR tennis strings are effective at minimizing elbow and wrist shock.
Ok here we go stringing my PowerAngle racket,
First impression is that this string is soft and elastic, no normal poly kinks or twists!
wow very easy to string with almost like a natural gut or very soft synthetic!
Strung at 53Ibs giving a Dynamic Tension (DT) of 35, we will now leave the racket for 24Hrs and retest to see the tension loss.
(had more string left than for a normal poly after stringing - which would mean that this string really is elastic and stretches when tensioned)
back in 24hrs!
Right just checked the DT of the racket and a total of 3Ibs tension drop in 24hrs, That is a 6% drop which is acceptable.
I played 3 sets of mixed doubles today (social tennis) and I decided to just play a relaxed game style.
I didn't try to force anything and I found I didn't have to, the power from the strings was really good without losing control, it felt more like a multi or natural gut with the power. I missed the directness / crispness of the feel but I still knew were the ball was going. The serves were quicker without the effort and the comfort was very high! one of the opposite players said that the balls were kicking up with more topspin than normal (so I am pleased with that :-) )
I will carry on using this string it will become a "comfort / soft poly " that I will use and advise players to try it !
I have made this string my special for April 2021 first 5 restrings with this string for only £10 per restring, that is a bargin!
hope this helps!
