Although it was officially launched in early 2020, Confidential, a shaped co-polyester string from Solinco, has lived in the shadows for a few years. Much of the information surrounding this co-poly, like the proprietary ingredients used to make it and the names of the players who helped develop it, is confidential. What isn't confidential is the nearly off-the-charts control score our team gave this string. The control comes from a familiar Solinco formula consisting of a stiff monofilament construction punctuated by four grippy edges (think Hyper-G and Tour Bite). The result, according to our team, is the kind of spin-friendly precision that brings the ball down on a dime. Although our crew reported no downsides, Confidential is likely too underpowered for beginners, and it may not win over players who require the plush feel of a natural gut or multifilament nylon. However, for the experienced ball striker who wants a durable co-poly that rewards full swings with pinpoint accuracy, Confidential is hard to resist.
