Solinco String Comparison

by TN

I’ve been asked to do string comparisons so here’s a Solinco string comparison between Hyper-G Soft, Tour Bite Soft and Confidential.

I’m keen to hear what string comparisons you would like to see next, let me know in the comments below. As you know, I enjoy Solinco strings and have been using especially Hyper-G Soft on a regular basis. I can also expand on this Solinco string comparison because this is not every string they have. There are some interesting strings I haven’t tried like Jenson Brookby‘s choice Solinco Outlast for example.

Like always, I think most people prefer to watch the video, but I have also written down some thoughts below to summarize.

For players looking for a livelier and softer feel, I recommend Solinco Hyper-G Soft. It’s a string I use regularly, but in more open patterns like 100 sq inch racquets with 16×19 patterns, it can be a little lively and doesn’t last quite as long. You can always go up in gauge then, which is a general recommendation. For more open patterns, go for a thicker gauge and/or deader string like Confidential in this case.

Solinco Tour Bite Soft is also a good option for players who don’t want to go for a stiff poly. It’s a bit more controlled and dead than Hyper-G Soft, but still pretty soft on the arm.

Confidential is another story. It’s not a harsh string, but definitely more focused on tension maintenance (softer strings drop tension quicker) and control. If you have a racquet with a lively string bed, I tend to opt for Confidential, which is a bit more comfortable than strings like regular Tour Bite.

Like I said above, you can dial in control using tension and the choice of gauge. Higher tension and/or thicker gauge for more control and lower tension/thinner gauge for a softer feel and better comfort/power. It’s all depending on your preferences, playing style, and what you want to achieve.

What strings of these three would you pick?

How would you compare Hyper G vs Volkl Cyclone in terms of spin, comfort, power, etc?

I recently went with the Solinco hybrid (Vanquish 16 in the crosses and Tour Bite 17 in the mains) and I’m really liking it. Controlled, some pop and still decent access to spin.
