View Full Version : Poly string similar to Head FXP 16.
11-08-2007, 08:26 PM
Hey everyone. I am currently demoing the Microgel Radical Pro, and its strung with Head FXP 16. I usually play with poly's though (Polylon SP 17, and Pro Supex Big Ace) so does anyone know of a poly that plays pretty similar to the FXP 16?
Any input is much appreciated. Thanks in advance

a cat cant bark
and a dog cant meow
FXP is generally a multifilament (lively responsive)
a poly is a different animal
I think you meant in terms of feel
well you already have BIG ACE (regarded as good feel poly) <ordered me a reel still waiting>
others feel free to add to the short list

If you like the FXP why not just use it? I guess durability is the factor?
FXP is reasonably low powered for a multi, I guess Big Ace, Signum SPPP would be the closest. But still a long way off from feeling like FXP.

Yeah, for the most part feel, durability and string movement are the main factors for me... and i hate having to constantly readjust the strings after each rally. I only have had the demo for 3 sets, and whaddaya know, the FXP snapped... guess it gives me a chance to string it up with BA.

Gamma Revelation is very similar to FXP power (I haven't tried regular FXP).

ever considered doing a hybrid?
so you have the durability of a poly in the mains (big ace?)
and put a multifilament in the crosses like FXP for feel
look up the best setup for your racket in the racket section Im sure some people posted their preferred setup for your MG radical PRO or here in the strings forum
CF for mains poly
HEAD RIP control in the crosses a Multifilament
