Simple yes or no needed. Is Gosen BioGut TecBio string a poly?

No, quite far from it. It's a very soft multi.

Composition: Special Polyester Monofilament/Bio Degraded Multifilament/Nylon Multifilament and Nylon Monofilament mixed/Bio Urethane coating.

I see the confusion

A poly with a urethane coating is still considered a poly no?

Court Jester, I see from your signature that you have a Tour 9 strung with Gosen Biogut Bio XPC. I also have a Tour 9 and it is strung with the Gosen Biogut TecBio 16 at mid. Do you know what the difference is between these two strings?

I used this racquet for a match on Tuesday and now my wrist is very sore - the strings felt harsh compared to what I usually use.

Not the one...I don't think tenniswarehouse carries it anymore, as an earlier thread dealt with someone trying to find some of this string. Thanks though.

My XPC string is not as comfortable as I thought either. It's probably because the core of the XPC is made up of several monofilaments and it's surrounded by nylon multifilaments. The Japanese Gosen website doesn't have any information on the TecBio (discontinued?) but TecGut is their line of traditional multifilament strings.
