I have read a few posters sugesting the new co-poly's. What are they? How do they differ from a regular poly? What are some examples? What are the benifits and disadvantages of them?
Thanks

Softer/not as stiff as 1st gen polys and better tension maintenance. Disadvantages? These co-polys provide more power therefore some people may claim superior control with 1st gen polys.. I don't think so though.

Not sure about the exact technology but very sure about my experience. Co-poly is supposed to be a little more arm friendly than poly while still having most of the bite/spin. It is true-so its a trade off. Having some success now with Topspin Cyber Blue which is a co-poly. Not as much performance as Lux BB for example, but not as harsh. Worth a try if poly hurts your elbow but you still want to try for the edge poly gives you.
