Hey, could you recommend some good valued reels?

I'm looking for Syn Gut reels under $50, Multi and Poly reels under $100.

Already have a reel of Gosen OG Sheep Micro 16ga

I'm using a stock TT Warrior OS and full Gosen just moves too much.

I've already tried a Cyberflash / OG Micro hybrid and it made me feel elbow discomfort for the first time.

I did not like the feel of the racquet leaded up.

Priorities:
* Price
1 Comfort
2 Durability
3 resistance to movement

About the only multi I am aware of that is under $100 for a 660' reel is Wilson Sensation. There are a lot of mini and half reels out there cheaper. You can also get some cheaper strings at times on auction sites, but it is buyer beware.

Alpha Gut 2000, Alpha Viper NXT, and Technifiber E-Matrix are low priced multi strings but I have not seen them in reels. The prices are similar to under $100 a reel though.

I'm all about Forten @ $49.95 a reel!! Great string IMO

Other solid Syngut options less than 50 are:

Pro Supex Titan
Pro Supex Spiral Flex

Multi under 100
Pro Supex Maxim Touch, 79 a real I think.

All Syngut's and multi's are going to move, that's just what happens....

if your concerned about string movement, either string your crosses tighter, or add string savers.
