    Iso-Speed Baseline Spin vs. Cyberflash vs. WeissCANNON Silverstring?

    I’m thinking of getting a reel of poly to try in hybrids. A reel will last me a long time thanks to its durability, so I don’t want to make a mistake.

    I’m an all-court player with 1hFH and 1hBH, and moderate spin on both wings. I’m addicted to thinner gauges like 17L or even 18g. I like crisp, zingy, lotsa feel and playability strings. I like to hear and feel the ball when I hit it. I don’t care for soft or mushy, dead or boardy strings.

    I think I’ve narrowed it down to Iso-Speed Baseline Spin 1.20 at $40, Topspin Cyberflash 17L at $68, or WeissCANNON Silverstring 1.20 at $120. Whatever I get I shall hybrid with many “high-feel” multis (like Kipper Zyex, NRG2, K-gut, Gamma TNT2, Maxim Touch, X-1 Biphase) to try to find the perfect combo.

    Is Silverstring really worth its price? Is CF that much better than Baseline Spin? Other suggestions?

    Which will be the best value?

    Silverstring 1.20 plays the best out of those choices...

    Now down to 4 feet behind the baseline.

    You're about to come under fire for not saying that Cyberflash is the best string in the world. Lol.

    I would go with Cyber Flash. Have you tried Baseline Spin?

    I absolutely love the Silverstring, but I have to admit that I've been playing with Kirschbaum P2 lately in one of my racquets and I like it.... a lot.

    I'd almost say the P2 has more spin and power than the Silverstring, with the same level of feel and touch.

    P2 is good stuff...

    I absolutely love Silverstring 17 mains with Forten Sweet 16 crosses. I would not be afraid to spend the extra money for the reel of Silverstring because you won't need to spend a lot of money for the reel of the cross string. I think the Silverstring/Sweet combo is perfect and Sweet is inexpensive. The combo plays extremely comfortable, powerful, controlled, lots of pop, great spin, and lasts. Try it out and see what you think. Regardless, I would buy a few individual sets during your testing phase instead of investing for the reels without trying them out first. In other words, listen the the responses to your post but don't trust us without trying them yourself. Good luck.

    Bruiser,

    Good point. I will try Silverstring before investing in a reel. The only one I have tried is CF, and it was "pretty good," but not extraordinary in my opinion.

    Sounds like I should also try Kirschbaum P2.

    Anyone else?

    (Sounds like P2 or SS are the ones to try.)
