Ballistic (Polymono)is more of a traditional or less modern poly that is pretty stiff, but Pro Hurricane is softer and holds tension better and is a bit more powerful.Pro Hurricane is a competator to Luxilon's BB ALU Power while Ballistic is more of a competator to Kirschbaum's SSH or Gosen's Polylon.I prestretch all strings, but these too because they are stiff and harder to manage and prestretching makes it easier and allows for better tension holding even on my CP machine.
