Our playtest team found Volkl Cyclone to be a very user-friendly co-poly with no real downsides. Unlike some strings that require either an onerous break-in period or constant tinkering with swing speed and tension, we thought Cyclone's playability was exceptional right "out of the box." This doesn't mean that Cyclone is for everybody.
The string combines impressive spin production with controlled response and excellent durability. Big hitting players who can bring their own power but want spin and control will find a lot to love.
