So I made the switch from PHT to PolyStar Classic and was impressed with how good of an all around poly it was! Having used PHT for a long time, I was skeptical at first, but since hitting my first ball, I haven't looked back. The Classic is a rather soft poly, has pretty decent ball pocketing, and has a lot of power. The control was average, but made up for it with good touch. A lot of spin came naturally, I felt my hits had a tad more kick to them. The great thing about it is that the price is extremely cheap. I felt this string is sort of a hidden gem, as it is not sold on TW, and is not talked about often on TT, but I feel it's a string many people should try.

Dayvdenko generally uses Polystar Energy 1.30mm, although depending on surface and opponent, he changes to 1.25mm. Earlier this year however, his brother Eduard did make a request for PolyStar Classic as well, also in 1.25 and 1.30mm. His brother is very methodical about his gear and is known as an 'equipment guru' by stringers on the tour.

I can't vouch for PolyStar Classic, but my boy just strung up my frames last weekend with PolyStar Energy and I am mighty impressed. Absolute quality.

In about a month, Classic will be available in 1.10mm and production will be very limited.

What are the differences between these two strings?
Which is softer?
Holds tension better?

How would they compare to ProSupex Big Ace? (My go to Poly at this point in time)

Thanks

Energy holds tension better and is crispier. Classic is softer, old school, 1st generation.

Classic is a very good string, but polystar energy 1.25 is just another level IMO.

More than a few players have tried the sample pack and have come back wanting Classic. It's all individual prefs.

Hi BigT,

Could you please let me know the following details.

Is Poly Star Classic a first generation Poly ?? Is it a co-poly ??

Also how about PolyStar Profile.

How stiff are these Strings. I mean are they hard on the arm/elbow.

Thanks

Classic is a 1st gen. poly. It is not as harsh as others like Polylon, for example.
Profile is on the softer end, but not as soft as Energy.

I tried Classic and its nearly as good as Energy. Strings started moving and losing tension really early and just felt cheap or something. The dollar difference to upgrade to Energy to me was worth it.
