    Great! The string arrived two days ago and strung Woven 7 to 30 lbs X 33 lbs last night. I took a few hits inside my room. Here is an initial impression:

    (1) very heavy string for 0.68 mmm -> lots of material

    (2) very consistent and high quality finish (German Made polyester multifilament)

    (3) very thick for 0.68 mm

    (4) quite responsive for just popping the bird around my room compared to BG-70 Pro

    (5) The outer sheath makes the string very slippery.

    (6) It's a different type of string in the stringing department. It feels like a fishing line and doesn't recoil and twist.

    Will extensively test it on Sat and will let CAppy75 and Sir CD-ROM test it out.

    Danggit Pete! That's not a real review. That's just speculative teasing.

    Please keep us posted.

    Don't underestimate Pete's skill at popping the bird around his room. It's unparalleled!

    It's a major disappointment. The Pacific Polyester 0.68 mm doesn't last 5 minutes at 30 lbs X 33 lbs. While it is intact, the repulsion is pretty awesome. The string doesn't take slice well.

    With you and 30x33, I don't think any string will last more than 5 minutes.
