ProTour Blue is a soft co-poly great for players who want to transition to polyester strings from a multifilament.
The ProTour provides the best response compared to other conventional polyesters. Its exclusive patented Low Molecular Weight Technology (LMWT) with added olefins and lubricants reduce friction, while giving it a unique appearance and brilliance
If you are looking for a soft co-poly which holds tension very well, then the ProTour series is the string for you! This string maintains the SOFT yet powerful feel of a multifilament, while giving you the control and durability of a polyester string.
Because of the round shape its a great choice for hybrid setups.
I really loved the pro tour blue, but wanted a thicker gauge and it was only offered in the yellow color. I am a strong 5.0 and former division II player, and while the yellow is just as good as the blue, for some reason it is significantly heavier to where I can noticeably tell it added weight to my racquet. Never felt the weight of different strings before but it is so noticeably heavier I will have to go back to thinner gauge.
I strung my prince ripstick 280g with a set of protour lime @48 lbs. with this setup, i can practice serves for hours, hit with the ball machine until the battery runs out or feed numerous carts worth of balls with 0 discomfort anywhere in my arm or shoulder. this string at this tension is extremely forgiving, so much so that it almost feels like synthetic gut or multi. make no mistake, though, it plays like poly as was evidenced by the ability to hit offensive shots from a defensive court position. i noticed considerably more spin than from my usual syn gut setup and there is no wear or notching after 6-8 hours of use. i would say that protour lime the most comfortable poly i've used up to this point (although much of that could be due to the tension). this may be a good candidate for a player's "first poly".
I'm a 5.0 level player and a former #1 at my high school all four years and played with these strings last night for the first time. I got the strung at 52 lbs in my new Prince ATS Textreme Tour 95 and it went phenomenally well. The string basically did everything right. It gave me great spin, control, power, stability, touch, and comfort. It had perfect ball pocketing and was a nice blend of soft and stiff: stiff enough to produce good power but soft enough to not kill your arm. It just felt fantastic and I love the lime color so much, and it's so affordable! Thank you to Ivor for making one of the best strings I've played with!
I had been using the PROTOUR Blue, and decided to change up the color palette. This string generates good spin and easy power. Minimal tension loss and smooth texture make for good durability.
Next on the agenda is the Square X Sharp
