i really dont know anything about this subject, pros and cons of each? the only things that i know is that poly lasts longer and its stiffer, other than that "0".

nylon is softer, inherently has more feel, usually more powerful, and more comfortable.

poly has more spin, more durability, less if any string movement and somehow translates to more control for me.

It depends on the tension and your racquet.

nylon:
more power
more comfort
less control
less durability
less spin

poly:
more control
more durability
more spin
less power
less comfort

I did not go into feel and tension retention because: 1. People have different definition for feel 2. new co-polys are able to hold tension better than nylon

That is about teh simplest and best explanation you will find. Start trying some poly/co-poly's and see what you think. Like many of us here, you will find a way to incorporate it into your game.
