Guys I'm sort of in a small dillemma. Right now, I'm using tecnifibre pro redcode on the mains and PSGD on the crosses. I like it a lot, mainly because it has a generous sweetspot, and is very powerful. Some dislikes are, it vibrates a little too much, and its lost a little too much tension, but I did string it kind of low, 57, so next time I'll string it higher. I want to see if switching to a multi would be better for my game. I'm a baseliner 80% of the time, and like to come into net on approach shots. I use spin, and love to have power on my racket (n6.1 95 16 x 18). What would be somethings that I'd lose, and gain? would this be a smart choice? basically I'm wondering if switching to a multi would give me more feel and power, but I don't really want to lose spin or control or tension stability.

You don't lose spin or control (except, as with everything else, through tension loss) and any *multi* tension "instability" is dwarfed by what you experience with polyester. And you don't say here whether you're considering a full multi job or just replacing the syn gut crosses.

oh sorry, I was considering a full multi job. But I do like to have that crisp feeling when i hit my shots, not something mushy. Maybe it'd be best just for me to replace the syngut with a 16 g multi.

Wilson's Reaction and Babolat's Syntronic Brio are both firmer multis.

So is the 16 gauge Dunlop Max Comfort, which is really darned cheap too and so is a good way to give it a try.

Dunlop Max Comfort is a really nice string, i too would recommend it

Max Comfort is cheap, but frays early and loses tension fast; it's a better choice for someone who already knows what a multi is and isn't bothered by the performance compromise it is. andyroddicksmojo doesn't fit that bill, so far as we know; Max Comfort would discourage him.

Laserfibre Supreme is a crisp feeling multi. You'll probably need to increase tension some if you don't want it a whole lot more powerful.

And the Laserfibre Super Natural Pro Stock is good too. I have just put it in a PDR to test that racket and have been really impressed. As a long time NRG2 and Gamma Livewire user -- both very good multis -- I am very impressed by what the Pro Stock dies for that particular racket.

Yonex 850 "Spin" is another firm multi worth considering, if coming from polys. It's gauge is 1.32 mm, but don't worry, it bites the ball fine. It has a special coating for this purpose. YONEX IS THE SPIN EXPERT. So, when they say they have engineered a product for spin, you can believe them, with your eyes closed.
