    Can anyone reccomend a value prices multi string or two? I've recently ben hitting with syn gut in an IG Speed and it just acts like a spring board in there. Need something a little softer I think.

    How about Genesis' new Thunder Blast. Plays really soft and comfortable. Great in a hybrid

    What is your cut-off price? If it's for example $10, I would recommend TF Multifeel and Yonex 850 pro...

    Pros Pro synthetic? Is that a multi or a monofilament synthetic gut?

    Perhaps they do both?

    In any case how does it play, I have access to it at a very cheap price, looking to hybrid with Alu/Silverstring mains.

    Thanks.

    I use Head RIP Control, >$7 a set. Some love it, some hate it, but for the price, you may want to give it a try.

    I tried this out as a cross string last night and was very impressed.


    MultiFeel is much better than the Yonex. Also check out NXT mini reels that are currently available. It is a premium string with a lower price in the mini reel form.

    Wouldn't softer be even more springy. Maybe increase tension 2-4 lbs if it is too springy.

    Good "value" multis:
    - TF Multifeel
    - Dunlop Comfort
    - Volkl Power Fibre II - you can get it for under $10 per racket if you buy a reel. But, I think TW is a bit high on their reel price - TW may match

    Wilson Sensation is $99 a reel/17 string jobs or ProSupex Maxium Touch is the same price per reel. That is under $6.00 per set..

    Pro Supex Maxim Touch, Gamma Revelation. You can usually find both for around $7-8 per set. Revelation is a basic multi, nothing special about it, but nothing bad either. Maxim Touch has more of an NXT feel to it (which is a good thing and at half the price) but durability is suspect.

    I have experience with three pro's pro multis...
    Tristar: I love this string. So much power for ripping winners, yet enough control to keep it in. lots of feel at net as well. got a good 5 hrs out of it.
    Torpedo: SPIN. wow its crazy. so soft and powerful as well. its like tristar, but more spin and a little softer.
    Gutex ultra: Stiffer multi, lots of control, better if you string lower in my opinion. BUT I did get ~10 sets out of it during a tournament (which I won :twisted:).
    Btw,
    All multis were strung in the crosses of my donnay x-oranges with poly mains at 60/57.

    Good prices for RIP Control in Canada.

    Amazing price in Germany for FXP control (if you do consider this a multi).

    Very good prices for Signum Pro Micronite and Pro Supex Maxim Touch in the U.K.

    What's your price range? Do you only shop from the U.S.?
