Which one is crisper? Which one is more powerful? Which one do you like more and why? Thanks in advance.

Oh and which one is best for spin?!

Baaah, feel like I'm talking to myself here... Anyway, I decided Syntronic Brio in gauge 17 is what I wanted. So, I ordered it from our good friends at TW...

Have been very pleased with my current playtest of SynBrio 17 @ 60# in PSC 6.1 95. Tested FiberTour a while ago and did not like it. SB has a nice crisp, yet soft feel; FT felt much stiffer. SB has superb feel on volleys; FT felt boardy. Serves and overheads much better with SB than FT. The SB has controllable 'pop.' Up to now, the only 2 multis I've liked are Laserfibre Supreme 17 and Head Rip Control 17. I still want to get more playtime with the SB but, as of now, I'd add Bab Syntronic Brio 17 to my multi list.

I agree with the above. Brio is much better than Fibertour, which is entirely overrated in my opinion.

I haven't used the Syntronic Brio, but I will say that FiberTour does soften up nicely over time. Very crisp initially though. I think FiberTour is a good product.

FiberTour is crisper, SB is perhaps a bit more powerful, and both would lend a consistency to your game. At this point, you might consider the price break you get with FiberTour, too, and a durable string it is, at that... An' I think you might need a further comparison, with Powergy, to satisfy you...

i've got fibretour 16 in my racquet now. been a few years since i used it last but remebered it being crisp. well, must say i like the string. it's softer than poly, crisp feel, good durability. however, i do notice a reduction in spin but not too much. just doesn't seem to grab the ball like lux did. for the money it's a great string.

brio, if i remember, is a touch softer than fibretour. liked that one too.

I like Brio better. It's softer and plays better.
