    I'm sure it was discussed before, but I don't see any recent threads.
    Can anybody recommend a good quality multi that is more durable and won't break too soon? I'm planning to use poly in the mains, something like Kirschbaum PL2 or SPPP.

    I recommend to use something like Wilson NXT 16. No better multi on the market. Now with that said something like a Gamma Livewire would work quite well as would Gamma Professional!!!

    I would also say that if you find that Multi's are breaking I would look into an extremley soft polyester string! I really like Head FXP Tour it has a poly core but feels a lot like a multi!!! It is so stinking soft!

    Genesis Thunder Blast is a great multi cross for poly mains.

    Power Fiber II black is very durable and I think it is 50% off now when you buy two sets...
    It is a great string to hybrid with silverstring!

    Multis do not blend well with polys. Try a solid core synthetic like Babolat N.VY

    Multis do not last as long but they will soften up the string bed more.

    It looks like a good deal and might order it. How is it for string movement?
    Also, do you know if there's any difference between black and natural color? Black reel is cheaper than natural.

    All multis move. TW does not currently sell Genesis.

    I have found Prince Premiere Attack to be a great cross for poly mains.
    it reminds me a lot of Nvy.

    I hit with PF Black 16 @ 52 in a hybrid with silverstring for over six months.....very little movement....
    I've never played with the natural color one...it should be softer but it might not have as good durability as the balck one
