    For fanciers of Prince's Synthetic Gut Multifilament (such as there are), Tecnifibre's Multifeel, and Babolat's Addiction I recommend this head-to-head playtest:

    Babolat's newest syn gut, N.vy, versus Babolat's Addiction

    I tried both around September last year. Both had a similar feel, kind of boingy, if that's a good description. N.Vy was indestructible while I cut the Addiction out fairly fast as it wasn't working for me. I had both in PDGTs at 55lbs. They probably would have been better at 58-60 lbs for that frame.

    As for MultiFeel, I don't see the similarity except for cost bracket. N.Vy will certainly outlast MultiFeel, that's for sure, but who wants to play with dead strings?

    Anyway, Valjean, you are the string guru! What do you think?
