Toroline Absolute is an excellent offering that offers a firm response with great spin and good control. Absolute is built for the modern baseline game and the player looking to get control with penetrating spin from the baseline. Serves and volleys are pinpoint, but do lack a little bit of feel.
Toroline Absolute: Tennis String Review
When I first strung up Absolute, it took about 20 or 30 minutes for the string to really settle in, but then it was an excellent offer. For me it was on the firmer end of what I like to play with, but for players that like a crisp response, it will be right up their alley. I would say Absolute falls in the Hyper G family, but with slightly less durability, but much more spin. Absolute isn’t the most touchy-feely string, but for players that choose deader polys, they will find something more forgiving than some of the more common dead strings.
The baseline is where this Toroline offering thrived. Flat shots were very flat, but went right where I told them to. On top spin shots from both wings, the ball had excellent shape and went deep in the court. The ball was consistently heavy, but rarely got away from. Off center hits weren’t harsh, but try to take pace off the ball wasn’t easy.
For serves, Absolute produced good but not great spin on kicks and slices, but still offered solid feedback and easy targeting. Flat serves were a dream though. Whether shooting out wide or down the tee, I felt like I had to try to miss.
Toroline Absolute is definitely on the lower powered end of the spectrum, even for a poly string. If you’re not taking a full cut, I can’t recommend this string for you. Especially on my backhand side, to get the pop I was looking for, I really had to square the ball up well. I tested this string in my Prince Phantom Pro 100P, which was a little too under-powered of a racquet for the pair.
Overall, Toroline Absolute is a great choice for the modern baseliner looking for a deader response to rip big spinning ground strokes but doesn’t want to sacrifice their arm. This string thrives on offense, and shines with a big server as well.
