I was intrigued by the idea of a multi with poly strands, so I bought a pack of Asterisk Tour 17g and strung it in the mains of a TT Rad OS with Weisscannon Scorpion in the crosses at 59/56. Considering its low stiffness and tension loss ratings of 180 and 12.53 I was expecting Asterisk Tour to pretty much feel just like a multi. It doesn't. The feel, sound, spin and control really resembled a soft poly. It was definately less powerful than the multi I usually use, Kirschbaum Touch. I would say that the Asterisk Tour main/Scorpion cross hybrid felt and performed more like a soft poly main/multi cross hybrid. Despite having a lot of the stiff feel of a poly, I found Asterisk Tour to be very comfortable. I don't use poly mains because of my tender elbow, but I experienced no pain after hitting and playing doubles for two hours. I would definately recommend Asterisk Tour to those wanting some poly-like performance in an arm-friendly package.
