Hyperion/Mircronite Hybrid Review
Did Hyperion in mains and Micronite in crosses.
Comfort – 9/10 ( Fantastic )
Stiffness – 9/10 ( Very soft and elastic )
Liveliness – 2/10 ( Didn’t feel lively at all )
Response/Feedback – 9/10 ( Very good feedback on touch shots. Good pocketing and dwell time. )
Power – 5 ( Was getting good power on touch shots, but low power on hard shots. )
Spin – 3/10 ( not any where near a full poly set-up )
Durability – 8.5 ( 16 Gauge ) ( This is very durable for a multi-filament! )
Durability – 7 ( 17 Gauge ) ( Will fray as quickly as normal multi-filament, but even in its frayed state, holds playability and tension as well as before and takes a good time before it bursts. )
Tension Stability – 8.5 ( Excellent been testing it so far and is barely losing tension )
Playability – 9 ( Excellent, string feels the same each time I use it so far. )
Control – 9/10 ( Touch shots ) ( I found it to be perfect, but I am sure natural gut will be better. )
Control – 6.5/10 ( Hard shots ) ( The strings were really soft and elastic but trampoline effect was still minimal, the great pocketing and feedback/response from the strings does helps a lot with control.)
Feel ( My subjective opinion ) – 9.5/10
This is the best Poly/Multi hybrid I have ever tried!
This set-up feels more comfortable than a full multi-filament set-up . Was extremely soft and comfortable with lots of responsiveness and feedback, giving me great feel for touch shots. Excellent Plow Through.
This set-up feels Gut-Like and would now be my go to set-up for comfort and feel for touch shots.
Hard shots were very cushioned but the lack of spin and ‘pop’ doesn’t match a full polyester set-up at all.
Hard flatter shots on this set-up felt much more controllable and has nice pocketing/cupping effect.
Main Characteristics that stands out when compared to other polyesters/multi hybrid –
Comfortable , Tension stability , Playability , Strong Response/Feedback and Pocketing.
