Tourna Irradiated is definitely one of the best and least expensive multifilament strings on the market right now. It has a gut-like feel and is easy on the arm. It also holds it's tension well and seems to last at least 5 times longer than other comparable multifilaments. However, it doesn't provide a great deal of power so you'll want to drop the tension (about 10%) to get more "bang". From: David
This is one of the better strings I have tested. I would consider using it more. It’s reasonably priced and definitely worth the money! From:Mark
Great string for the price. In my mind, Tourna Irradiated – 17 plays better than Wilson NXT - 17, and it's also cheaper. A very good bite on the ball is produced, and as a 5.0 hard-hitting player, having good topspin for ground strokes and the second serve is crucial. All in all, a great string that beats several of its higher-priced counterparts in terms of playability. From:Nathan
