Being Energy a soft poly and X1 Biphase a crisp multifilament, how do they compare and which do you recommend?-(Tension, spin, comfort, feel, durability, control, power, etc.)

Thanks Parasailing for you reply in other thread concerning this question.:)

Tension: Biphase, Energy does not hold tension well (doesn't really matter as you should string polys low anyways)

Spin: Energy, obviously better than biphase

Comfort: Energy should be comfortable enough, but it's obviously not as comfortable as biphase

Feel: Both are nearly the same

Durability: Energy

Control: Energy

Power: Energy

I highly recommend energy. You can't really compare a multi and a poly, but if you are a stringbreaker try out energy. If not, try biphase.

Would you put gut or Biphase (or another multi) as a cross with Energy to make it even softer?:)

Oh, I thought that you were using this as a hybrid. The only setup more powerful than that would probably be PL2 crossed with natty strung low.

I agree with most of your assessment except for power. Biphase has more of it and if durability means breaking the string, I would probably agree with you. But since Energy loses so much tension, it becomes unplayable so even if it's more durable, it's loses it playability.

Energy represents a good value for those who can string for themselves.

Energy is the most powerful poly and string that I have ever used. IMO a bit more power than biphase even. But yeah the tension maintenance is the only let down of energy. Other than that it's perfect.

agree with you here.. energy is very powerful and soft.. if it held tension better, than it would put every other string to shame but you can't be the best at everything..

Other than that it's perfect.Sorry, even among multis, I cannot think of one more powerful than X-1. Energy doesn't come close. X-1 launches balls just looking at it.
