    I'm currently using CF1.2 in a hybrid with Pro Supex Maxim Touch. No problem so far with durability. Comfort and feel(which I rate very high in string characteristics) are also much better than I expected.

    What will I gain by switching to CB1.20 or should I stick to CF? Maybe another gauge like 1.25?

    i think you'll get a softer feel and a bit more power then with CF..

    You'll also get better tension maintenance with CB

    I just switched from CF to CB (both are hybrid with SynGut). For me, CB gives me too much power but not enough bite. It probably due to I string the CB with too high tension (CF: 52lbs; CB: 57lbs).
    Next time I will try to lower the tension and see how it goes.

    I had big ace strung at 58# and it was way too powerful. I usually string at 56, but I think BA needs to be done in the low 60's.

    Is this also the case with CB?

    gauge and tension being igual
    cyber flash is good
    cyber blue is better, slightlly softer, slighttly more power
    bite should be the same since they are both round co-polys, tried them both, i like the cyber blue over the cyber flash, but either are great starting copolys,
    i dont think they would be better than lux or the high priced copolys , but like advertised, they are "the poormans' lux"

    Same for me, the CB was too powerful. Felt nice, but I didn't like it otherwise.

    Spin is definitely not the same in my experience. Much less on the CB than the CF. I felt an exaggerated power/comfort/"softness" emphasis on the CB. The CF is a very good poly for the price.
