    I was just wondering what's a good red colored poly string. I know of Pro Red Code but is there anything better.

    Thanks in advance :wink:

    imo, there is no other red poly that is better than prc
    you could try pro supex big ace, overall good poly. Kind of like the PSGD of poly's

    I am really digging Topspin's new CyberRed 17g. It is a pretty soft/powerful poly--but that is what I like :)

    There is no better all-round poly than Kirschbaum Pro Line II (and it's red)

    I wouldn't go with Revenge... It felt really stiff and I use full ALU POWER.

    Pro Red Code is my favorite

    Genesis Spin X and Pro Supex Big Ace Red are good too

    Kirschbaum sucks imo

    When you say the red one, are you referring to Cyber Red? If so, how did that compare to Cyber Blue?

    Tried both Red Code and Pro Line II and Red Code is one of my favorite strings. Red Code gives a lot of power at a hogher tension without sacrificing control.

    I am a big fan of the Kirshbaum Hybrix Spin. Nice firm mains with very soft crosses. The strings have great feel and generate a good amount of spin. Not to mention...three for the price of two at Tennis Warehouse.

    Yeah, I can't imagine going back to Luxilon because Red Code is that much better. It doesn't lose tension like Luxilon if you use 16g and you get way more power from a fresh string job.

    prc is really stiff at 16g. it also is not a lively poly per se. I think it might be ok at thinner guages and maybe lower tensions. I didn't like it in an ag200. I think it would be okay with opne string pattern.

    No it wasn't Cyber Red. I think it was called like Alpha Redline or something like that.
