    Seeking maximum comfort and will string at 48 pounds in 90 sq. inch frame.

    Which string is stiffer?
    Which has more feel?

    Thanks.

    Red Code is softer and has more feel, but for me, that didn't outweigh the fact that the spin potential and control with this string (for a co-poly) is pretty lackluster.

    However, a lower tensions red code plays well and lasts sooo much longer than tour bite as far playability

    Even at lower tensions (I've done 30 lbs with Red Code in a K6.1 90), it's still pretty lackluster than Tour Bite in most all aspects, but it definitely does last longer. I prefer Isospeed Baseline, Topspin Cyberflash, and SPPP to those two anyways.

    I agree. Sppp plays much better than red code and lasts longer than tour bite. Not to mention it looks really cool.
