Toroline is a new American string brand in an already congested market. But they do make some high-quality strings! Here is my Toroline strings review.
I wrote about Toroline strings as soon as I got my sample pack. I did like that they split each set in two (saves time) and that the total length was 13.4 m instead of 12 m, which gives the stringer more to work with. They included a couple of different strings in the sample pack: Caviar, Absolute, and Super Toro in green and blue.

Toroline Strings Review – Caviar
Let’s start with their yellow, hexagonal string Caviar. It’s a pretty cool name in my opinion for a string compared to most on the market. There are plenty of yellow shaped strings though. Other polys that come to mind in that color: Volkl Cyclone (Amazon affiliate links), Weiss Cannon Ultra Cable, Mayami Magic Twist, Yonex Poly Tour Pro, HEAD Lynx, yeah the list goes on!
Out of all of these strings, Caviar is my current favorite and it was the standout string from Toroline for me. What I appreciate is the control and tension maintenance from this string. It stayed playable even after 10 hours in my Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT and it wasn’t too stiff or harsh. Instead, I found a good amount of topspin, similar to Cyclone, but a bit less than Ultra Cable (which I find a bit too stiff).
So Caviar is the real winner for me in the play-test so far.
Super Toro is the most recent Toroline string. It feels a bit softer than Caviar. I tried it (blue) in my HEAD Prestige Pro 2020 and in green in my Babolat Soft Drive 1997. The green felt livelier, more spinny, and but offered a bit shorter tension maintenance. The blue felt a bit more controlled and slightly softer to me. Perhaps it’s just color difference (which can have a slight impact), but that’s how it felt to me at least.
Caviar offers a bit more spin and a firmer string bed in my opinion, while the SuperToro feels a bit softer and less lively.
I am yet to try the softest string of the bunch, Absolute. It’s made for hybrids and for players looking for an arm-friendly setup.
I will update this review as soon as I have tested it properly.
Now I am keen to hear what you think about Toroline strings!
