    I have big strokes and I use a wilson 6.1 pro staff. I've been using nxt for a while and I really like it but I'm looking for something a tad cheaper...or something similar so I can buy a reel. Does anybody have suggestions?

    I forgot to mention that I wouldn't mind trying out a different kind of string other than multifilament.

    the Volkl Catapult is a great string, not AS crisp as NXT but an all round good string at a great price.

    I used NXT in the 6.1 classic for a while when it first came out years ago. I like Prince Premier Softflex better now. You also loose no playability by using the Softflex in the main and hybrid with Forten Sweet as a cross. Total string cost for this hybrid is only $7. The only thing better in my opinion is natural gut.

    Another vote for PS maximum touch. Can't beat it for the price.
