red code is very very stiff and nothing close to cyberflash or any of the strings you mentioned. I dont know how john isners arm stays a=on when he hits the ball with full redcode.

I feel it's not that stiff, but at the same time not that soft, more of a crisp feeling poly. Very nice IMO (full bed).

Soft and comfortable are not words I would associate with Redcode. I tried it once it was very stiff. Much stiffer than the others you mention. I thought even more so than big banger original. I would say it "has no give" if that makes sense. I only hit with it once though and I had it at 58 so maybe too tight

I find PRC much harsher and stiffer than Luxilon strings. Its very very uncomfortable and vibrates a lot. Not a nice string...it hurt my arm.

I use a full red code set up on my dunlops, its a stiff string but thats what i like, but if your looking for a softer poly, this isnt it.

I use full redcode at very low tensions, around 44 lbs on a Head Extreme Pro, I like this racket/strings combination a lot. I use to have a loads of problems with tennis elbow, but since I use these strings they are gone. I found that despite the low tension I can control the ball very nicely, my consistency has increased a lot, I hit with quite some topspin specially on the backhand side.

The racket is very forgiving and with the redcode it has a "dead feel" but that's OK with me since I know that if I "feel" the hit, it "feels" in my elbow.

I will try to hybridize it next time with Synthetic gut, the full poly is lasting a lot, its been there for 2 months already and I strung all 4 rackets with it. Normaly syn gut lasts me a week or less.

People have different tastes, I was using kevlar hybrids but they felt too harsh on my elbow.

Compared to the strings you put on there, Red Code is a rock. It's a stiff string that's mainly about control and spin.
