I have tried lots of strings and for me, nothing plays like the ashaway crossfire 17. So much spin and control.

also can anyone can compare between polyester, synthetic gut and natural gut? like what are they good for?
cause right now I'm using polyester and I want strings that give more control and feel, should I change to syn gut or nat gut?

You will get more feel from NG but depending on the type of player and tension you use NG may not give you good control. For me NG only gives me control in putting the ball against the fence. A good Poly like ALU gives me the most control and since I don't rely on drop shots or lobs (other than heavy hit topspin lobs in doubles) I don't care about feel as much. I want to hit the ball as hard as I can, as deep as I can, and with as much angle as I can. For this, ALU is the best for me. If you want feel and control I would go with NG or a good multi like GAMMA XP or Wilson NXT.
