Players with long, fast strokes should love Yonex Poly Tour Fire - a round polyester monofilament that will keep your biggest strokes inside the lines. The feel is firm but nicely dampened, with a surprisingly low level of shock on off-center hits. Yonex has made this string with its unique Silicone Oil Infused Filament (SIF) Technology. This is a manufacturing process that reduces string bed friction, enabling the strings to snap back with vicious force (resulting in heavy spin). Our TW playtesters were impressed by how much control this string offered on full swings. Although this might be a little too firm for beginners, we think it is perfect for intermediate and advanced players, especially if they want control, durability and spin. Tension maintenance is above average. Try this thin 1.20mm version for a little extra bite and feel than the thicker 1.25mm version.

Comments: I agree with Patrick. These strings perfectly complement a spin string in the mains. I strung them at 48 lbs. with Luxilon ALU Power Rough at 50 lbs. (mains). The ALU Power Rough snaps back quickly giving maximum spin. Incredible!
Comments: Everyone should have a reel of these strings for their crosses! When you are stringing this string, you realize straight away how slippery they are. People think that being slippery isn't good because it sounds like you can't grip the ball and think it will have less spin. But one of the largest factors of getting spin is having the mains move and snap back to its original place. This string is perfect for that purpose because it's slippery and this effect lasts. I've tried other slippery strings but it turns a little rough after a few sessions. Put this on the crosses with any spin friendly poly and you will realize this string is your best friend. I change around the mains a lot but never change the crosses. It matches well with the RPM Blast. The thin gauge really compliments the movement on the mains but if it breaks too much, try the 1.25 gauge. I don't know why Yonex made the 1.30 though.
Comments: This string is awesome! I have this strung as a full bed at 50 lbs in my Yonex Duel G 97 330 and it has a very plush feeling with great pocketing, spin, and control. Not as powerful as a full bed of VS Team or VS Team/Alu Rough hybrid, but my shots were staying in much more often due to the increased spin causing the ball to hook down at the last second instead of sailing long. Also found it to be more comfortable and playable than full beds of Alu Rough, RPM Blast, or Ytex Quadro Twist -- all of which I cut out after a couple of outings. Everyone is looking for something different when it comes to strings, but I think this one is definitely worth a try.
