    so I strung a full bed of solinco tour bite 17 @47lbs and while the pop wasn't lacking, this string is STIFF. I am comparing it to genesis twisted razor. can anyone tell me how volkl cyclone, volkl cyclone tour, msv hex, and msv hex soft compare in feel and spin to tour bite? I am thinking of trying these strings but don't want the same stiffness of tour bite.:)

    I played with all the mentioned strings. Tour bite is the best IMO.volkl cyclone is almost as good as the tour bite, but I found it a bit more stiff even. Try and string it at a lower tension, it wont feel so stiff

    Tour Bite "SOFT"
    I think it is on the market now or real soon. Heard good reviews.

    Tour Bite Soft definitely addresses the stiffness issue. Tennis.com had a preview article last week that said February release.
