I just tried SPPP Hextreme yesterday (1.25mm), was nice. As much spin as a very small gauge (Like timo 18, 1.10mm).

My number choice . Cyberflash hold tension very well and has very nice pop. Polar Poly is very soft, tension holding not as good. Strings break in the 20-25hours range for Polar.

I hybrid both with Forten Sweet. Keep tension near where you string sys gut strings at. I started at too low a tension.Like both strings

In a hybrid, cyberflash holds tension around 6hrs, then dropped for me afterwards until my multi crosses snapped 3hrs later. After the tension drop the CF felt comfortable and great. Before the drop it was low power and stiff feeling.

I have not used another poly similar to CF.

I found that my new Goosen Proform Tuff 15G gave me more spin then my previous NXTs. Maybe its just me but my opponent told me that he noticed the difference in spin.

There are at least three grades of spin imparted by strings sold to do that. All of them are textured, but the texture wears off in fairly short order. The best way to generate better spin is with thin string strung at a fairly high tension. The textured ones are out there for those of you who break the thin stuff.

Well really u don't need a string for top spin and you should be doing the spin itself and learn to do it with any string. I heard luxilon is good because its not stiff.

the OP is talking about the brand topspin, not strings that give you the most spin.

Here is what he actually said: "i was wondering about trying topspin strings. can anyone tell me how they feel or any other string that is similar."
