    i really dont know anything about this subject, pros and cons of each? the only things that i know is that poly lasts longer and its stiffer, other than that "0".

    nylon is softer, inherently has more feel, usually more powerful, and more comfortable.

    poly has more spin, more durability, less if any string movement and somehow translates to more control for me.

    It depends on the tension and your racquet.

    nylon:
    more power
    more comfort
    less control
    less durability
    less spin

    poly:
    more control
    more durability
    more spin
    less power
    less comfort

    I did not go into feel and tension retention because: 1. People have different definition for feel 2. new co-polys are able to hold tension better than nylon

    That is about teh simplest and best explanation you will find. Start trying some poly/co-poly's and see what you think. Like many of us here, you will find a way to incorporate it into your game.
