    I'm using PSGD with Silent Partner Synthetic and I'm looking for a string that holds tension better than them. What do you guys recommend? (No natural gut)

    Have yourself a look at the LaserFiber line, they've got some really good synthetics that actually hold tension. I'd say my two personal favorites, for what they are, is the LaserSupreme and LaserTour.

    Is there anything cheaper? I'd prefer something about 5 dollars or less.

    For $5, expect $5 results.....including $5 tension holding capabilities. $10 for a set of strings that actually play well is a deal IMO.

    Ashaway Dynamite. Not the greatest string I've tried, but it drops almost no tension at all over its lifespan.
