Help me out!!!

I have been using babolat xcel in my head IG youtek racquet. However, I have been breaking it in 4-5 hours of play.

I would like to chose a soft, durable poly. I have been given 2 options by my club Head Sonic Pro and Babolat RPM Blast.

Which would you chose?

I would say RPM. I used it on my APDC. It has enough power, spin and control. It's also very durable. I have it for 6 months on my racquet and it's loosen up a bit after 3 or 4 months ;)

forgive me for my English...:p

If you are looking for softness sure you should go for the Sonic pro 17g.

Sonic Pro is better, in my opinion. RPM loses tension far quicker than Sonic Pro...

I should mention that my order of preference would be

Soft
Durable
Playable

Is durability defined by time it takes to break or time until it starts losing tension?

I use the IG Speed 315 16x19 and I've strung mine with both Head Sonic Pro 17 and Babolat RPM Blast 17. I love RPM Blast, but in this frame, I really like the Sonic Pro. It feels plenty soft and very responsive. Incredible bite.

That said, it dies rather quickly. For me, I do not want to get my frames re-strung every two weeks or so. This weekend I had my stringer install Prince Recoil and I'm very pleased with the results.

If you have the bat speed, you can get incredible kick on your strokes and serve. I alternated between one of my frames with Sonic Pro and the other with Recoil, and I was getting significantly more kick on my serves with the Recoil. I was playing with a former college player, so keep in mind that you really do need to have the bat speed to get the benefits of Recoil, IMO.

Out of your choices, Sonic Pro is the way to go.
Also, consider Genesis Black Magic. I thinks it's like $10, but it's pretty amazing. All the benefits of poly with the soft feel and comfort.

It's no contest then - Sonic Pro is much softer than RPM. Frankly it performs very well in all areas. I'm very happy with this string.

Sonic Pro hands down.
