    Now, are you thirding my first or thirding my seconding which would actually be seconding as I was seconding some one else's seconding, but if your thirding my seconding that would actually be fourthing as I was seconding a seconding which would in reality be thriding.

    Stupid! All of you!

    To answer the OP: The cyberflash is harder to chew through with your teeth, but the dunlop taste better.

    I have not hit with cyberflash but currently have dunlop explosive 16 gauge in my apdc. One word to describe these strings, STIFF. Drops tension fast. Do not recommend at all.

    Not exactly what you're looking for but I've used
    cyber blue and dunlop.

    The dunlop is stiffer and not something I'd string up full poly.

    The cyber blue strung fully poly still feels good and has good spin.
    btw, this was on a k90. I've since sold my k90's and am back to
    my PS85 + dunlop /gosen hybrid.

    Could someone talk to me about the calorie a carbs intake?

    See, first the carb gets itself a niiiiiice, fresh string. Then it heads on down to where all the calories are expected to gather. Once there, the carb casts this string into the stream of calories and waits for one to bite the string. Now hopefully the carb is a smartcarb and made the string nice and attractive to those calories while keeping the weight of its casting rig to a minimum. This way the carb can make more casts late in the day to keep tempting those calories. Anyway, once the carb has a bite it proceeds to bring in, you could even say reel in, the calorie slow like. Taking its time, letting the calorie have it head when it tries to run, slowly reeling it in when it tires. As the struggle continues, for some odd known reason, other calories tend to grab on to calorie that's caught. This makes the carb work a lot harder but then it's hard to have just one calorie. However once the carb finally gets its haul into where it's at, the carb scoops them up with some type of net and sets off to make itself a little dinner. Often, to increase the overall affect of the calories, the carb will mix those calories with some herbs and spices such as Oreo cookies pieces, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and yes, even some hot fudge, butterscotch and even some occasional cookie dough. It'll mix the calories up real well, kind of like how swirling snow in the middle of a blizzard gets all mixed up, and sit down for some fiiinnneee eating.

    And that, SFrazeur, is how a carb intakes a calorie.

    Hmmm...in terms of tension loss, is it comparable to, say, Luxilon BB ALU?

    Dunlop Explosive 16 Polyester 1.29 253 16.98

    Topspin Cyber Flash 1.20 Polyester 1.20 236 17.47
    Topspin Cyber Flash 1.25 Polyester 1.23 240 15.54
    Topspin Cyber Flash 1.30 Polyester 1.27 258 15.28


    Looks like CF is softer and holds tension a little better.
    I've tried only the CF 1.20. It is one of my favorite polys.
