    If you are referring to cheap reels, then Forten Nylon is good.

    I would suggest MSV Hex and Topspin Cyber Flash has both excellent preformance to value ratio.

    Topspin reels give you one extra racket on top of the normal reel discount

    Agree. Personally, when compared to other strings in it's category, it is too cheap.


    Anyway, another one is the Gosen OG Micro.

    NOT referencing to cheap reels. Those can be easily found on tennis warehouse. I am referencing to playability to cost ratio AND reel cost to set cost. Ill give you an example. NRG2 is around $185 for a reel, X-1 is $245 yet NRG2 is only like $1 cheaper. So how come the reel is so much more expensive?

    FYI there are a few places still selling Gosen OGSM at the old price. Stock up now. ;)

    Gosen Polylon is one of the least expensive polys out there.

    I think one of the best values from good poly would be a Topspin Cyber Flash. Reel 722'
