    I just got my Pro Open strung with NXT Tour 16 cross and what my coach/stringer said 'orange poly' that made up for Pro Hurricane Blue main both at 54lbs.
    Okay if you can tell what strings are by loads of close up pics and stuff, I'll take some pics with my phone.
    Also how can I measure the gauge accurately? Thanks

    Also I love this poly and I want to find out the name. It IS my holy grail

    I have a set of Signum Pro Poly Plasma with me right here. Color is pearly orange and there are indeed no markings on the string.

    It might be that then.
    I want to post pictures to make sure though, if that is okay?

    Did you ask him? Sounds like SPPP... but several other orange poly's are out there. A darker orange could be WC Matchpower

    Yeah sure but it may be hard to tell just by looking.

    I would say that I'm 90% sure that is Signum Pro.

    I'm going to add a 10% on.
    I really think this may be SPPP

    And it looks skinnier than the NXT by a hair so I would say 16L (1.28 mm) gauge.

    Yeah I just had another look at the close ups and it may be smaller than 1.28 (16L). Maybe more like 1.23 (17) but it's really hard to see from the pictures.

    You guys must be bionic... I can't tell jack from those pictures, haha

    Signum is a solid bet. I think TCS makes an orange poly too
