    Alright, tested both these strings. strung at 55lbs, and here are my initial thoughts.

    Comfort/Softness
    : Big Ace
    Power: Cyber Power
    Spin: Big Ace
    Touch: Big Ace

    So I guess Big Ace is the winner. However, will still have to test them as a hybrid. I'm going to hybrid with Gosen Sheep Micro 1.25 in the crosses and mains, and see how it goes.
    The poly's are sweet by themselves, but I think a hybrid will give my shots more dimension. Found Cyber Power to be just a little harsher on the arm compared to Big Ace.

    Thats strange that you found CyberPower harsher than Big Ace....its the softer string of the 2 (by a long way)...its in the top 3 most comfortable polys (with Poly polar) IMO. I would also give the edge to CyberPower for touch...

    Each to their own!

    I would agree with your opinion, but I feel Cyber Power to be too mushy and way too powerful for me. Big Ace is better for spin though.

    Okay, so i've had abit of time to play with both strings and a change of heart:


    Comfort/Softness
    : Cyber Power
    Power: Cyber Power
    Spin: Big Ace
    Touch: Cyber Power

    Have just ordered some more Cyber Power, massive fan of this string.
    I've also ordered some 'Poly Polar'. What are the differences between the two? Are they the same string?

    No the only thing cyber power and poly polar have in common is they are both blue and both soft, they play completely different from one another.

    Sounds like you have played with both. Which do you think is the better string?

    Well string choice is a very personal preference thing and my preferences seem to differ from most on this board.
    But for me poly polar is a very unique string, it has to be strung relatively tight compared to other polys but offers a feel that is just not available in any other string.
    Lots of polys are soft but polar is soft without the sponge/mushy feel that most soft polys have. It still has crispness. It is a string that fits directly in between a syn gut and poly.

    Cyber power does nothing for me in a full job, havent tried hybriding it yet.

    Jman, I noticed you are from Australia, where did you order the strings from?

    Hey, I ordered my Cyber Power from 'stringsdepotplus'

    I strung my Cyber Power at 55lbs and had great results with it. Are you saying with the ploy polar to string it a little tighter because of it's softness?? Would 55lbs be too low??

    Could you recommend me a synthetic gut string to hybrid with either CP or PP. One that is arm friendly.

    Hey Jman, I sent you a email,

    I would string the polar a couple of pounds higher than cyberpower as it drops tension quicker. Polar will not last nearly as long as cyberpower.


    For a syn gut cross pro supex titan gut is soft and very economical.
