    What is your opinion for the best string Genesis makes and why?

    I am disappointed in their products. Typhoon is by far THE fastest dying string ever. Even Lux has Galapagos tortoise's life expectancy compared to Typhoon.

    Black Magic is basically Topspin Cyber Black. Heptonic and Hexonic are below other comparable strings (by price)...

    Typhoon is awesome, loads of power and spin. Black magic has feel like natural gut, it's better than some multis I've played with. Genesis Spin X is a lower powered version of typhoon but retains tension longer and has the same pocketing. I have not tried xplosion, heptonic, or hexonic.

    i only tried the spin x and typhoon and both exceeded my expectation.. strings are subjective so just try it out and see if they are good or not

    I have tried black magic and spin x. I think both have good ball pocketing (for polys), maintain tension well and have good pop. I prefer the spin x over the black magic, to me it's a little more lively.

    Spin X
    Black Magic
    Typhoon

    all 3 are very good strings. Good tension maintenance, ball pocketing, pop, and spin.

    depends which one feels best to you.

    Got some samples and I'm really diggin the Black Magic. Its my 1st time playing with it. It has suprisingly impressive ball pocketing in both the 1.29mm and the 1.23mm for a co-poly without being mushy. Really outstanding feel for me at the net. The 1.23mm has a little bit more power and spin.
    I'm a bit concerned about the durability of the 1.23mm, as there's some pretty good notching after 3 hours of hitting, but the tension maintenance has been very good.
    I'm playtesting the same gauges in the Spin X next... can't wait.

    Cheers!

    I liked Spinx the most, I got MORE action on the ball on a 18/20 frame than with typhoon on a 16/19 frame. Spinx had more feel Typhoon was a let down after all the hype.

    I am currently enjoying Typhoon. I have a reel of BM to. It has become my standard poly for friends who want a hybrid. I use it with ProSupex Titian in the crosses. Everyone seems to like this combination.

    I tried all 3. I felt that BM had the best combination of characteristics for me.
