Can anyone comment on this string? Tension maintenance? Crisp or soft? How does it compare to Cyberflash in these categories? I want something just a bit softer than Cyberflash. Thanks.

It's a pretty soft poly, never played w/cyberflash. Overall, pretty good, strings don't move much, holds tension very good for 1-2 weeks (as long as I had it).

There have been some reviews in the forum. I am sure you if you scroll down in the threads you will find something.

I just tried it and found it to be quite soft. My typical set-up is gut mains and WCSS in the crosses. I substituted the Spiky Shark in the crosses and found it to be less crisp and lower powered than WCSS, but it had better touch/feel. Tension maintenance was comparable to the WCSS which is quite a bit better than most poly's.

I suspect it might play better with a full set or using it in the mains and gut in the crosses. I haven't tried this combo yet.

Does it give extra spin because of the texture?

String it Loose like 55-58 lbs range. at higher tension, it is way to stiff and has NO feel whatsoever. As it loosens up, it gains feel and power. and Spin potential is good. Little better than the Pro Hurr tour.

Thumbs up to this string. The magic number seems to be 56 for me. Depend what your crosses are.
