    As you can tell from my sig, I'm using the Control right now. It's one of their nicer multifilament offerings. It's got nice pop, easy on the arm, and some nice control. They also make some nice quality poly's and some other multi's like Professional, which is the same as control only thinner, and Energetic, which isn't as crisp or as durable IMO.

    One thing I liked about all the isospeed multis I tried was the noticeable increase in spin I got when compared to other multis. Still not on the level of polyester, but the increase was obviously there.

    I LOVE THEIR STRINGS!!!! I use pulse and control in a hybrid and i love it. they are good for my wrist which hurt before, and provide great spin and speed. definitely give it a try if you can. quite affordable to, and durability is good.

    i just bought a reel of baseline spin 17g

    i love this poly.
    to me it feels like pro lines or a softer version of red codes.
    my set up right now is 62 on my k90.

    ok so according to iso speed website (not TW), hybrid spin is actually a polyester. polyesters are known to be bad at holding tension. I have been using Isospeed pulse which is a polyester with a coating and it has been very good at keeping tension. I think these strings should be find especially since you plan to hybrid them and isospeed spin is string with characteristics similar to gut and is recommended to use as a cross.
