    Hi folks,

    I'm playing with T-fight 295 VO2 max, but can't find my good string, I'm a rather big hitter, with decent spin but love to strike a flat winner, 1hbh and many volleys to play. I'm searching for a good string (multi I think) with touch, feel, power, spin and durability), and the most important is: the cheaper the better !

    If it wasn't for your last comment about cheap,I would say nat.gut,as the feel, power, and comfort is like no other.Everyone should try it at least once.You can go with a high grade multi, like Kgut, or similar, as a minireel of K Gut is reasonably priced on TW.The power is not the same as real gut though, as no other string compares to it.Maxim touch 17g. is a cheaper alternative if you are $ concerned, but I found out with customers,that the 17g.maxim touch does not last very long as some other multis, but is more economical/set.If you go with that brand, I would consider to go with a 16g.
    All the features you want would be difficult to obain,(especially being cheap,and durable), as there is a trade off with each feature.

    When you find this combination, let us all know. A lot of us have been looking for that for decades.

    I like SPPP and X-1. I am trying to give my shoulder a rest though, and am now hitting with just X-1 17g in there and love it.
