    Forten Sweet17 is outstanding for me. I cross it against Cyberflash17. A reel is about 50 beans.

    PSGD is also good, along with Pro Supex titan.

    way too expensive IMO, especially to be crossed with what i expect to be a poly

    Never played it as a cross, but I've played it as a full job on a demo racquet my friend had, and it played fantastic overall.

    Pro supex maxim touch is really cheap in a reel as a multi.

    I have to disagree. I think the WORST match for poly is a multi. the poly will just shred the multi. Gut does much better, as well as soft monofilaments like forten sweet, gamma tnt, etc.

    Try Pro Supex Titan 1.30. You will have to string it tighter.

    I like iso speed control. feels good.
    Don't use tnt--- worse than a multi with durability.

    As a cross, you should get a synthetic gut since the differencee between a multi and synthetic gut is not too noticeable, and not worth that extra money.

    So, the best synthetidc guts I found were.

    Forten Sweet
    Pro Supex Synthetic Gut Titan
    Pro SUpex Synthetic gut Spiral FLex

    Ya, I second Titan or Spiral Flex. Both are very comfortable and really cheap in reels.

    I'll have to look into spiral flex and forten sweet myself. Seems to get a lot of good reviews for syn gut.
