Just as the title says, I'm wondering if there is a difference between Co-Poly and Poly?
I've seen both terms thrown around, but I'm not sure whether they are synonymous.

Poly is a term that is short for polyester, strings composed primarily of polyester. Newer generation strings have advanced technology and a mixture of assorted elements to help with tension maintenance and comfort, these are referred to as copolys.

copoly when i get asked i say are a combination between a poly string and synthetic gut
they are much softer on the arm then polys, but yet offer about the same responce in regards to play as the poly strings, they stretch more also then poly strings,
seems like copolys has all the benefits of poly strings without the harsh feel of them, thus giving a little more power back, and thats why they are much more expensive then the poly strings, such as luxilon, thats a copoly

i tried to copy and paste the information from the web site, no luck, so here is word 4 word, "luxilon is not a polyester string, its a poly-ether-ether blend"
