I play Yonex 002 Tour rackets strung with Cyberflash strung at 58lbs. Its how I received the rackets. I'm looking for a little more power out of the racket and was wondering what strings people would suggest that are more powerful, as opposed to those that dampen power like most polys.

Thanks for any input.

Just do a hybrid of Cyberflash mains and PSGM (prince multi) crosses. My favorite set up to obtain more comfort and power.

Too expensive. . . .but I suspect you knew that.

The most powerful strings are multifilaments from my experience.

Really powerful ones include Tecnifibre X1 Biphase, Tecnifibre NRG2, Prince Syn. Gut Multi.

Wilson NXT and Babolat XCel Premium are also kinda powerful, but not as powerful as the above mentioned 3.

what are your feelings towards cyberflash? do you like it? if so i would say to hybrid it with a multi or syn gut, and drop a few lbs of tension on the cf. this will give you the spin and control of poly with a little more pop and feel of multi or syn gut.

In general Synthetic or multi-filament strings give you the best opportunity for power at a reasonable cost. The variety of strings in these categories range from very high feel strings to more power and lively strings. I would look in this direction for more power. The flavor of the day seems to be to do hybrid stringing. Quite frankly, with the right synthetic gut or multi-filament, you can get the same response, feel, and power of a hybrid setup, by simply playing with tension on the mains and crosses.

I have no real complaints with Cyberflash. I'm finding good durability and the feel is satisfactory. I'm just looking for a little more muscle out of my current rackets.

Thats easy-just use a decent solid core syngut. No need for exotic hybrids or overpriced multifilaments or cow guts. PSGD is the most popular.

have you try the new cyber power? if you looking for more power.. this string is the one for you... this string is an imporvement on CF, with more power, better tension maintance, longer life span and to some better spin...

Those are all good recommendations. I'd also add any of the Gamma Live Wire strings to that list (and maybe even the TNT2's.
