    I'm using Solinco barbwire right now and i've notice that these strings are like chainsaws. They cut through things really quick. I really like the spin that they give, i was wondering what would be a good durable cross string that doesn't have a bad feel or stiffness. Is there such a string? (i think probably not but if anyone has advice please feel free to post :))

    So far OG micro has been serving me pretty well. Cheap solution too

    We have been finding Barb Wire a nice string.
    For my daughter, Barb Wire 1.2 in the mains and Pro Stacked 1.3 in the crosses. The Pro Stacked lasts quite well for us.
    My son however, users Tour Bite in the mains and Barb Wire in the crosses. He realy like this combination. He does not like a multi string crosses. So the Barb Wire just softens it up a bit for him and has great spin.

    It's not necessarily the type of string that matters, i want string that feel good but also lasts which i think it's hard to find =P

    Wilson's Red Alert is supposed to last twice as long as other synthetics. I have found it durable. If the red color doesn't bother you, it's worth a try.
