    If you liked bb alu rough and want something more arm friendly, I'd suggest you try bb alu flouro first (I like it @60lbs).

    With Cyber blue it a softer than cyber flash.
    String higher than with cyber blue and lower with the flash
    I have one stick strung with flash at 52lbs, and before had elbow problems. It really feels great on the arm. I too play a lot of doubles and have great touches at net play.

    I'd actually take a look at Concept Pure, also from Topspin. I used Cyber Flash for a bit, but I had wrist problems. I tried many different combos, but Concept Pure won out.

    I've also converted a few people I string for who used to use Cyber Blue. All of them say Concept Pure has more spin & is softer.

    Besides, if you buy it my the reel its only $5 per set...

    If you don't like ALU Rough I wouldn't suggest Cyber Flash. It's billed as being a poor man's Luxilon. Lux is a fantastic string which is why you've heard such good things about Cyber Flash.

    I have no experience with Cyber Blue but it is softer that CF so it would be easier on the arm.

    Cyber Blue is the better string.

    Both strings are top notch IMO. Blue is softer, needs to be strung a little higher and CF is ideal if you have a modern racquet. The Kblade felt pretty a little more low powered, so I'd try the Cyber Blue first.

    Good strings, I prefer Cyberflash but it does lose tension a bit faster. Cyberblue is a bit too powerful and mushy for me, will experiment with higher tensions in the future.

    The statement I was making was that this is a discussion forum, and not text messaging. If you would like an answer then write in legible English. After all, if you do not care enough to write in legible English then why should anyone care enough to answer your inquiry?

    I prefer Cyberflash as well, but I don't have to worry about tension as much since I break it before it goes dead. If you like a biting poly with great spin potential, and your arm can take it (although it is still softer then Lux), Cyberflash is the way to go. If you like a very soft feel (for a poly) and great feel, go with Cyberblue.

    Agreed. They feel very different. CF= stiff, "a poor man's Luxilon",

    CB= soft and powerful for a poly, good tension maintenance.
