I am currently hitting with pro redcode 17 gauge :) and I love it. All about it except for the elbow-shoulder pain it creates. I love polyester strings and donn't really wan't to go elsewhere. :oops: If anyone has a suggestion for a softer (still high performance) polyester (preferably 17 gauge) I would appreciate it. :-D Thanks :-D

Redcode feels fairly soft to me, so polys may not be the best choice.

But if you want a soft poly, I would suggest Weisscannon Turbo Twist. It comes in a 17g and it is probably one of the softest polys I have used. To me it actually felt like a firm multi string. I prefer something a little more firm.

I think I was wrong about it (prc) creating the pain. I think it just makes the pain worse that's already there.:cry:So sad that I have to switch from either my fave string (prc) or take a break from tennis for a while to let my elbow-shoulder get better. Thanks for the suggestions, I might get the Weisscannon TT if I don't take a break.

I think two of the softest Polyester strings are HEAD Sonic Pro 17 (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_Sonic_Pro_17_Strings/descpageACHEAD-SONIC17.html) and Tecnifibre Pro Mix 17 (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Tecnifibre_Promix_17_String_/descpageACTFUSA-TPM17S.html)

I have a reel of tecnifibre black code and a reel of tecnifibre red code, I only use the red code in hybrids for the reasons you've stated, and i too like the red code. The black code plays really similar but softer, and i am not afraid to use it in both crosses and mains. might be worth a try.

I just tried out Topspin cyberblue. It is pretty softer than the usual poly string.

PolyStar Energy is all about comfort. Concept Pure also.

Where can you get Polystar Energy? I wouldn't mind trying it out as I am looking for a soft poly.

PLII is a nice string, also Touch Turbo 17, M2 Pro, and Poly EXP 17 are great. I was susceptible to arm pain until I started using these strings.

M2 is a great soft poly.
