Wilson Reaction 16. I recently tried it and it blew me away. It is extremely comfortable, yet it plays very firm. What I mean by firm is that it feels almost like a watered down version of a poly, but you still get the feel and comfort of a multi. Also, it is very durable and barely moves. I'd give this string:

Comfort:8
Power:6
Control:8
Durability:7
Ease of stringing:5(careful of friction burns when tensioning)

Another relatively arm friendly string, if you want to go poly, is Topspin Cyberflash 17g. Very coushy feel for a poly string.

Just saying if you wanted a poly string, that would be the one to try (having hard time thinking of more arm friendly poly...). Some good syn guts that are easy on the arm are Gosen OG Micro and PSG.

Yeah, Reaction is a good string, ok for spin, very good for comfort, but it broke way too easily for my liking (and it was NOT my stringing method ATS ;) ). Xcel really didn't impress me, seemed like a little souped up, more comfy Forten Nylon (which really isn't as bad as some people make it to be).

Yonex 850 Feel....soft but not mushy, doesn't move much, excellent touch, very good durability.

I've had reaction for about 2 weeks now and I see minimal signs of wear(no fraying and coating is still in tact along the whole string bed). Played every day exept Sunday cause it rained. I even did a five set-er with my hitting partner and to test out the strings durability I kick served the whole match and the string barely moved and I only double faulted 3 times(guess that shows it can produce nice spin).
