The bright green (optic yellow according to Prince) are called Poly EXP, while the other string is called Premier LT. They are selling them in hybrid packs with 17g Poly and 16g Premier (Hybrid Power EXP 17/16), and with 18g Poly and 17g Premier (Hybrid Spin EXP 18/17). Haven't had a chance to try them, but a lot of the new EXO3 demos have been strung with it.

Premier LT 16g was FANTASTIC for the first 2 hrs. Felt like a very soft 18g poly. Amazing bite on the ball on my bh slices......

BUT, it went dead quickly thereafter... lost a lot of tension... had to cut it out.

I would LOVE to play a set/stringjob with this string if $$ wasn't a factor.

Probably should pre-stretch then, huh? Thanks for the info. You just saved me a disappointed customer.

I just strung a sample pack in my Prince Speedport Black Team and love it! I havent noticed much tension loss as it plays the same yesterday as it did last week when I strung it.
