Low powered, spin string, not too stiff. Name types of string i.e. synthetic gut, poly, multi. And the name of the string.

Pick a number greater than 10 but less than 5.

You are not going to find a low power, spin string that is not too stiff. Take the string you like best and string it tighter. With more tension on the string you will have less rebound (power) and more spin. You may want to try lowering the tension in the cross string or raising the tension in the mains.

Wilson's new hexagonal one, Super Spin.

OP, this fits the bill as a synthetic gut-spin string, havin used it, but i got to say i did not like it too much, or rather do not care to try it again, personal preference i guess, you might wanna try it and see what you think
i got the same ammout of spin from a 17g synthetic gut string, like gosen
I.M.O. the 16Lg-wilson-super-spin = 17g-gosen-og-micro in regards to spin
also, the shape lost shape pretty fast, and stringing hurt, because of the edges on the string

Try the Co-poly MSV Focus Hex 1.18. This should fit the bill for what you're looking for, even though I don't care for it!

All textured spin strings wear down; the question is just whether they wear out too (since use returns them to mere synthetic gut status)--and that before you need to restring anyhow.

I really think you should be answering the OP directly yourself, not addressing me, my opinions, and so on, too.

Head "Rip Control" 16G Is a nice string.

I second this recommendation. Very good spin from a non poly.

Best spin from a control string I've ever tried was BB Original Rough. Though it is pretty stiff. I'd still be using it if it hadn't made my wrist sore. If you do try it make sure you string it LOOSE, since it is much stiffer than many of the newer polys we're seeing these days.
