Hi everyone. I am about to order some string from tennis warehouse, and I thought I would ask to see which of these is the best:

All are in 18 gauge
Tecnifibre Pro Red Code
Babolot Pro Hurricane
Wilson Enduro Tour
&
Iso-speed Baseline Spin(17 I think?)

If relevant, I am somewhere between a 4.0 and 4.5. I am mostly an agressive all courter, but mostly using groundstrokes. As far as string breaking, I have never really used poly to much, but I am looking something to hybrid with Gosen Micro or Tecnifibre Syn. Gut. I break the Tec. syn. gut in about 6 hours. Thanks for anyhelp

Babolot Pro Hurricane

&

My favorite of the bunch personally would be the Iso-speed Baseline Spin, because of it's playability, it's color, and it's price.

Next in line would be Red Code, but it's a little stiff/harsh for my taste,

then Pro Hurricane which initially hits fairly well after the break-in, but then the tension drops like mad

and then the Enduro, which is really stiff. Helps a lot with control/spin I'd say, except volleys on this thing is horrible. No feel. It also dropped tension quickly, imo.

Could you write what you're looking for? Like a softer poly, or stiff, power or no power, etc It would help find a poly you're looking for

Well i think that I would like a poly thats pretty crisp, but not so stiff. I use a kblade tour, so something with medium power. Thanks for any help :)

Pro Supex Big Ace 18!!
Very soft. Can hybrid it but its soft enough to use as full job

O. I use a KBT as well. My personal favorite setup is Leopard Plus Control 17 hybrid w/ Isospeed Control 16. I'd say go with Big Ace...that's probably a string you'll like. For some reason, I just like the leopard better, but everyone else I know loves Big Ace. Like the guy ^^^ said, it's soft and crisp. I prefer hybrids, so you might want to go for a soft cross.

I swear by Pro Redcode being the best on the market, although i am not using it at the moment as i havent sourced any for the right price yet after my last reel ended.

i would try big ace micro, very soft and crisp!

use it in a full job though, idk how it would work in a hybrid, maybe too soft for my tastes...
