    ahaha....poly that is arm friendly? riiiiiiight.....

    i say, just hit with a cheap syngut to see how it plays. then find the string thats right for you.

    a poly in that frame might have weird results right from the start so i wouldnt recommend it.

    Have you been replacing your "ands" with "n" because you bought the "n"code?? :) just kidding.

    I don't know of a soft poly.

    Topspin Poly Polar, Kirsch Touch Turbo and Rab Monoflex are some of the softest feeling polys.

    i would do a hybrid if you want the durability of a poly in a softer package. something like lux alu in the mains and a soft synthetic in the crosses might work.

    Rab Monoflex plays soft when you lower the tension; 9 pounds for
    me. This is the hardest string to string(I'm not a Englist major). The Touch Turbo has more power but does not hold tension as well.

    Two very good choices

    Go with Touch Turbo, but if you want more control with the strings, u'd would have to string it at a higher tension coz it's really a lot softer than your regular poly strings like Luxilon, Super Smash Honey and etc... I strung mine as mains at 59lbs on my PS 85 and my shots were flying all over the place for the 1st half hour!!!

    federer was using wilson gut mains, lux alu rough cross in his t90 - would assume he's the same in the n-code. Tension around 58 on the mains, 53 on the cross.

    Unique Tourna Poly Big Hitter got excellant reviews in RSI magazine. Better than Luxilon BB Alu in their opinion.

    I used the Kirsh SS for 3 yrs then TT for the last yr. The softest poly = Gosen Bio Gut Poly. You can find some on **** for under $6 shipped. Good stuff - breaks when tension is lost so your not kidding yourself just because the strings are still set.

    TT hybrid with Gosen Micro OG Sheep at 54 lbs. Very soft and cost is very low at about $6 if you buy by packs.

    Not sure if this qualifies as a poly but Gamma Zo plus strings as easily as a multi and plays soft even without lowering the tension by 15-20%.

    I agree with jings . . .Go with a NG/Poly hybrid. Put the NG on the top of the tension scale, and the Poly 10% less.

    In USRSA lab tests, the Tecnifibre Promix 1.25 tested the softest in dynamic stiffness of all polys, beating even some nylons. TF Promix 1.30 was in second place.

    Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power 16L is the best all around poly I've tried.

    If you don't want to spend that much then go with Kirschbaum Super Smash Honey 17g.

    Touchy T , I was thinking of a string set up with kevlar mains and Alu rough in the crosses . Kevlar strugng at very low tension (47) So I see you said you can string Lux at low tension . Do you think this will fit for my set up ? Thanks for your time..
