Absolutely love it!Review by Todd

I used to use luxillon rough and nxt control and thought it was a great setup. I am usually a defensive 3.5/4.0 player. I won my first two matches ever at 4.0 singles playing this string and was able to be much more aggressive and kept the ball in the court much better. I could not be a bigger fan of this string.

Tier One Firewire Boost Hybrid 1.30mm (I think it was 16g, I threw away the package months ago). Thanks to Tier One for shipping me a free sample to try.

This is a poly/poly hybrid meant to have the very sharp Firewire in the mains with their Neos-2 smooth poly in the crosses.

Tension it is strung: 60# on a lockout
Your regular string set up: Volkl Cyclone 16 @ 60#
String pattern of your racquet: 16 x 16 (Prince Tour 100T ESP)
Power (or lack there of): Medium powered
Feel: Between good and great
Tension maintenance: I forgot to use RacquetTune, sorry everyone.
Price: $8.95/set
Overall comments and feedback: See below

General: If you've followed this thread, you know I'm a fan of shaped polys. Awhile back, I tried a full bed of Firewire and really enjoyed it. Since I'm not a clean ball striker, it broke after only a few sets on a shank. So I was intrigued by this offering wondering if this may help the shank problem. Read on for the results...

Serve/Return of Serve: Serves have nasty spin with this setup. My first serve has been dialed in recently with Cyclone and this string so that comparison is a wash. I was able to be aggressive on returns and put a lot of balls back in the court. It was rare to miss a service return unless I was pulled way off to one side.

Strokes: I felt the most confident I've ever felt on court with this setup the last 2 matches I've played. It literally feels like its grabbing the ball and slinging it. Flattening out balls I had all the confidence in the world to take big cuts. If I missed taking a big cut, it usually hit the top of the tape so I didn't miss by much at all. Even my slice backhand which is average came alive with this setup. I'm a defensive grinder but this setup gives me the confidence to take control of the points when I have the opportunity.

Volleys: Good on regular volleys, terrific when hitting drop volleys probably with all the extra spin it provides.

Touch shots: My drop shots were pretty good with this setup.

Softness: This felt pretty soft on the arm. Definitely no arm issues.

Tension: 60# played great. I love the crisp sound of the ball on contact.

Durability: I've been using this on and off for months for a random set at a time because I didn't want to switch strings too often during league play. I don't really see much notching on the crosses, so I may be able to get quite a bit more life out of it. I didn't keep track of the hours but in a 16x16 pattern, I'm surprised how good it still looks for the number of hours I've logged with it. No shanking issues yet.

Movement: Some string movement but nothing too bad. I think the smooth cross poly allows the strings to slide mostly back even as they age. The OCD folks will like this one.

Color: The red and white color is pretty nice IMHO. Federer and Stan should consider this one. :)

Conclusion: I think I may be looking for a home for the rest of my Cyclone reel that I just opened. The spin with this setup is off the charts, the durability is outstanding and the price is reasonable. If you are looking at the sub $10 poly class, this may be better than Cyclone or Cyclone Tour if you are a fan of either of those strings. I think I'll be making the switch to this hybrid!

Great String All AroundReview by Michael

I've tried most of the leading polys, multis and hybrids over the last two years. The boost hybrid is the best I have tried. Control and spin are excellent, but it also isn't hard on the arm and it holds tension well. (Posted on 7/30/17)
F*cking Awesome...Review by Darius

SHHHH! don't tell your competitors about this string. This string is f*cking awesome, played the best match ever after stringing my racket with this Hybrid , I have been using FireWire 'full bed' for the past year or so (didn't think it could improve) . Was I wrong, working as designed, the mains (FireWire) easily slide n snap back on the smooth crosses, to produce more spin, better control, solid feel, & lots of power to spare, whats there not to like. I have the 17G strung @ M at 57 & X's at 59. in a stiff RA 70 racket, and still very smooth and easy to play with no arm problems. I have tried them all from gut to multis. If your looking for an edge over your competitor, if your looking for a little confidence booster get these strings... (Posted on 4/11/17)
