I finally tried out my prince syn gut soft (aka ektelon power play) as a cross in a hybrid with sppp mains. It was amazing! The best initial experience i've ever had with a string job. Spin was incredible. The power was just right. And most importantly... my racket felt great!!! (i use a tt warrior mp.) The feeling when hitting the ball is hard to describe. It wasn't harsh at all. It felt soft... but at the same time crisp. It had a raw feeling to it as well. When I hit the ball it was as if i could actually feel the ball rolling along the stringbed. I've only played with it once so far... but hopefully it plays the same this weekend. If it does... then I've found what seems very likely to be my "holy grail" The problem is with the cross string though... I found them at a great deal (a little under $2.25 a pack.) and only have a limited supply. Buying ektelon power play for $6 a pop is a bit more than i'd like to pay... not to mention that it doesn't come in reel form (as far as i'm aware.) So what are comparable strings to ektelon power play? I've read that it is classified something like a "nonmulti soft syn gut" Lastly... if anyone has played with both... how does it compare with wilson sensation (which i've been considering for quite some time based on reviews and price.) EDIT: Once I get more sppp, I plan on comparing it to a hybrid with gosen og micro to see how similar it plays. Though, from what I've read, I think I may get closer to what I want with the sheep micro or the JC. For now though, I'd very much appreciate any and all suggestions!
