    My coach is offering me a reel of polystar energy for $65. I have never used the string before but my teammates have told me it is the best poly on the market.

    Does the string stay lively very long? (unlike lux) Is this a good deal? Thanks.

    I wouldn't know really if it's a good deal. But I can tell you that tons of people on this board love the string. Saying it's the best is going a little far though.

    Try the string before you get the reel. Polystar Energy is just mediocre for me. Soft for a poly, but nothing that makes me want to switch to it. I'll be willing to play with it, but it surely isn't "the best" on my list

    it does lose tension pretty quickly. when i used polystar energy i cut it out after 20 hrs of hitting. it got springy and then went dead

    $65 for a reel is pretty good - works out to a little over $3 per string job

    20 hours for a poly is REALLY long.

    That's what I thought too.

    Christ, I only get 3 hours, 4 if i'm lucky, with BAM. 20 is just insane, especially since you cut it out.
