    These come to mind:

    Luxilon Ace
    Kirschbaum Pro Line II 1.15mm
    Pro Supex Big Ace Micro 1.15mm

    What thin poly do you prefer, feel free to list others.

    I'm thinking of trying Luxilon Ace on my next string job since my racquet is so flexy and has such a dense pattern(ProKennex Redondo Mid), a thin stiff string plays pretty well in it(I've tried the Pro Line II before).

    I've been curious about the Pro-Line but never had the chance to try it, but I am currently using Ace and the micro. I'd be keen to hear your comparison.

    For me the Ace is far superior to the micro even if it is twice the price. The feel and playing characteristics of Ace far outlast the micro and the strings move around less.

    I enjoyed Lux's TiMo 1.17. Thing is, that is the thinnest poly I have used and the rest were 17 gauge. Must say, I thoroughly love the thin polys and is going to be the next reel I get.
