    so you are saying you feel like ZX is much more closer to NG than origin or X-1..? and then do you think ZX has more power than X-1 or Origin ?

    Yes and no comment as I never used X1 or Origin. Why not try them?

    Those 3 strings are closest to natural gut.

    Never tried Origin but ZX definitely has less power than X1 in my experience. I have ZX Pro as a full bed in my wet weather setup racquet, and it's got such a unique feel. Crispy like the feel of synthetic gut but very soft on the arm.

    ZX looks like 2nd rate product. X-1 and Origin are 1st class strings...so they must be better....... I think

    Most of FedAce's posts are like this.

    FedAce lives on in another form. You called him out again! Just admit it FedAce and we'll move on. Mikeler is the man! Enjoy your tennis everyone...

    If it costs more and has better marketing and advertising behind it, it must be better, right?!!

    Actually, typically there are a lot stupider than this so maybe he is taking some classes on common sense 101 from stanford when he is not on the forums... Gotta love Jim Cha aka Fedace aka Nostradamus

    More, but could be I'm fooled by Zyex's drastic tension-loss.

    In my opinion Origin has a controllable power. I think Origin is a really good string, stays playable for a long time, keeps tension extremely well, and offers poly-like control. I am very surprised it doesn't get more praise. I like it best in a full bed.
    The only downside for me, is that I feel a little disconnected on touch shots.
    On groundstrokes and serve: A superb string, at least in my frames.

    I have played with a full bed of this string in 16 gauge for the last couple of weeks and I really, really like it. The feel on touch shots, volleys and slice is wonderful. Strangely, it becomes even better after a few hours. Like it grabs the ball better, and becomes even more comfortable. Needs to be strung in the upper half of the recommended range to be tamed. Easy on the arm, and excellent feel. Recommended for all-court players with tender elbows :)

    I've put Maxim Touch in a lot of racquets of people who've said, "just give me something nice and soft with good power". Have yet to have a complaint, and in fact, I've hooked quite a few people on it, which is why I keep a few reels on hand. It's not the best multi in my opinion, but for the price, the performance is great.

    What's your favorite multi, and why?
    Do have any recommendation if I tell you I like the feel of Maxim Touch, but would like a little more control? Thanks :)

    It does have great feel but is a little too powerful for my game.
