Why we carry this string: It would be irresponsible not to make it available to our customers. It is quite possible the Turbotwist is the perfect combination of power, spin, control and comfort that many of our customers seek. Yes, the twisting process does create coil memory that makes it a bit less easy to install than other string products. Yes, it feels very firm and wire-like out of the package. But once installed, the performance reaches height previously untouched. It is a terrific playing, highly-sophisticated and advanced offering.

Comments:  The TurboTwist is an entirely new breed of string animal.  It does not fit into the poly-based string kingdom, nor does it fit into the world of synthetics.  Rather it is a class of itís own.  In a word, it is INIMITABLE.

From purely a construction point of view the Turbotwist is classified poly-based family, but it is a rebel.  The level of comfort, the power level and the feel will make the user swear s/he is hitting with a crisp synthetic.  In fact, because of the high level of elasticity, the manufacturer suggests stringing at the same tension as multis.  No need to drop tension like you do with firmer poly-based strings.  These strings, like natural gut, need a bit higher tension in order to tame the inherent power.

Even though the feedback you receive will make you think you are hitting with a synthetic, properly strung you are going to realize the control you get with a poly-based string.  It truly is remarkable.  The spin potential with this string, in a full stringbed setup, is as good or better than any.  You will be hard-pressed to find a more spin friendly setup.

As an added bonus, the longevity of the Turbotwist is exceptional. This string does experience an initial tension loss on par with most synthetics, but after the initial loss, it locks in and holds properties for a prolonged period of time. In terms of durability, it is poly-based string like performance all the way.

good combination
I strung my mains with Scorpion 1.22 and the Cross strings with turbotwist 1.18. This combination seems to keep the control I like with added topspin.

UFO technology and quality
The Turbotwist 1.18 is on top of the top! This string gave me from the first hit an incredible sensation of confidence on court since my tennis elbow injury (almost healed). I use it on crosses with Babolat VS team 1.25 ont the mains on a Yonex rdis 300 racquet. I instantly forgot all other strings and brands. There is no possible comparison! I first tried the Silverstring but it is more for flatter hitters in my opinion. One curious thing : I left a feedback on a very renowned american tennis site but half of my feedback was removed where i was saying that Weiss Cannon had a huge technological advance compared to other brands. It seems like they are afraid for their business since Weiss Cannon's UFO technology appaired. Merci beaucoup to Guts and Glory who made me discover such a magnificent string. I am now a happy player who is having fun on the court. Best salutations from Paris, France. (Sorry for my english)

My Search is Over
Your TurboTwist 1.18 product is without a doubt the finest string on the market today. As a long time consumer of poly and poly-based string (with emphasis on Luxilon and Babolat), this offers far superior performance (exceptional control and spin), is more durable, and holds tension better that any of the competing products.

Itís a bit more of a challenge to string than others, due to the amount of memory, but thatís a very small price to pay for the pleasure of using such a fine product. BTW, this tendency is not as pronounced with the reel since the wind is not as tight.



Currently pairing this string with several Kneissl Black Stars results in incredible performance. Have not found a better combination.

Thanks for your efforts. The search for the ultimate string is over!
