    What string performs the best at lower tensions? I find shaped polys that are on the stiffer side to work well (Solinco TB).

    I've got Solinco Tour Bite 17 crossed with Solinco Barb Wire 17 and they are holding tension well (only 2 lbs tension loss after 5 hrs of play) and play great

    The best strings at low tensions for a good price are usually co-polys. Second is natural, third is synthetic.

    I've heard that the Mamba strings work very well at low tensions.
    In fact, they recommend it.

    i have actually found the slightly softer shaped ones to be better for me . I find i get more spin with solinco revolution 17g at 30 pounds than I do tour bite at 30 . Of all the strings i have used at low low tension Revolution is the best for me
