    This is obviously a biased choice, but I really like Prince Multi. It's pretty durable for a multi and has good pocketing. It's a little stiffer than other multis, but still easy on the arm. It's got a nice buttery feel to it. Also it's on the cheaper side of multis.

    I personally also like the Prince multi out of these choices. That said they are all fine string.

    Valjean is a good bet for advice on multis, he knows a lot of them.

    These are your only choices?

    To someone with little string experience, I'd say take one of these moderately-priced ones instead (listed from soft to firmer, and paired to your selection order too):

    1. Prince's Premier w/Softflex
    2. Babolat's Addiction
    3. Babolat's Attraction/Attraction Power

    These are my recommendations based on this OP's question, where he comes from, and his current list. I thought I made that clear enough, too. What else would it be?

    VJ,

    Based on all these suggestions and your experience, what would be a "crisp" multi with good feel?

    Thanks.

    Now, come on; there are likely a dozen threads in here about "crisp" this and that. (And they all pretty much seem to bog down on what that means, too). Review those, and then I'd start one of your own, with that problem in mind, if it means that much to you. But I think one thing that would help you get the feedback you want too would be to start with the kind of play-need that's involved and indicated by the type of game you play, experience you have, string and tension, and racquet--you know, like the USRSA playtesters routinely provide.

    sorry, didn't mean to disturb your peace. Since none of them was on his current list, i misssed the connection. I don't have time to read every post and cross ref all the info, for every question I have.
    I was impressed with your rep for having knowledge of Multi's and had the question, comparing the the MT string to your choices.
    I'm no expert and use polys mostly these days for full job.
    I'll try to make sure I ask someone else next time I have a multi question.
    thanks anyway,

    VJ,

    Sorry, I was just trying to pick your (particularly multi-experienced) brain. I have run many searches, and done just a such thread: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=218120

    Sorry your re-reading didn't take in more than my list.

    I'm also disinclined to go much off-topic.

    Better luck next time.

    tech xr3 is great IMO, for a more controlled, low power "crisp";) feel

    To me, Wilson K-Gut is even better than NXT.

    Give Technifibre Multifeel a try. Plays very similar to NXT and is cheaper.
