Probably, Prince Synthetic Gut with Duraflex would be one of the stiffest monofilament nylon core strings.

The stiffest I have used is the Gosen Jim Courier.

Ashaway Monogut is the stiffest nylon string listed in the USRSA string database despite TW calling it a softer feeling durability string.

Yes, Courier did actually use that string for a brief period in his career.

This is why Ashaway recommends that the tension be lowered by 10-15%. When the instruction is followed, Monogut is indeed a very soft-feeling string.
