    I'm looking for cheap Poly/multi blend available in reels (a reel of the poly and a reel for the multi).

    Any suggestions?

    For polys there are many:

    Average polys:
    Gosen Polylon
    Babolat Ballistic
    Topspin Poly Polar

    More popular polys:
    Topspin Cyber Flash
    Pro Supex Big Ace
    Signum Pro Poly Plasma
    Pro Supex Premier Ace
    Luxilon Big Banger series- not cheap though
    Polyfibre TCS


    There so many others. It is hard to think of them all. As for multis, the cheapest that comes in reels is Pro Supex Maxim Touch. NXT and NRG2 don't even come in 660' reels- if they would it would cost like $200 anyways. Wilson Sensation is also cheap but is crappy.


    *Note by average I mean they are not the greatest of polys. I am sure some poeple love Poly Polar, Polylon etc but hate Cyber Flash, Lux, etc.

    ^^^I had to write that or else people here get offended easily. :)

    I'm also looking for a good blend to go with Luxilon. I like full Luxilon, but its expensive and not the most comfortable thing in the world. What's a good string to go with it? (And would you put the Luxilon as mains or crosses?)

    Luxilon gets very expensive if you mix with a multifilament because it will then brake 5 times earlier than full Luxilon alu. I used to play with full Luxilon alu power and those strings lasted almost forever, so quite inexpensive in the end.

    Gosen Polyon Ice\Gosen Syn Gut == $60 for a 660' Reel of each and you will be able to string 30+ Rackets == $2 a racket can not do better than that.
