A local stringing customer proposed the following question to us today. It is an excellent question and we believe others can benefit from the question as well as our response.
Q: My son is currently using WeissCANNON Scorpion and he loves it. However, my husband wants to know what is the next step up?
A: The WeissCANNON line of tennis strings are premium in nature. They may cost slightly more than many competing brands, but our customers will tell you the quality difference is evident. In short, WeissCANNON strings are top of the line and it is difficult to find superior products. Your son is already playing with a top-of-the line power copolymer.
Specifically the Scorpion is a powerful copolymer that provides excellent comfort. In terms of powerful copolymers, we have not found any better product currently available. The Topspin CyberPower is an excellent string, perhaps even a bit more powerful, but while it is good, it is hard to say definitively that it is superior. The Scorpion and CyberPower are clearly the top 2 strings in the power copolymer category. Honorable mention to the Signum Pro Poly Deluxe and Pro Supex Big Ace which also fall into this same category of copolymer. We do not however find them to be superior to the WeissCANNON Scorpion.
The WeissCANNON Silverstring is the benchmark by which many comfort copolymers should be measured, but it is not as lively as the Scorpion. It is consistent and excellent in all areas, but it plays differently and fills a different niche than the Scorpion.
