    i was wondering what the difference is between the two? does the poly one play stiffer? also, if the mono is softer, how is the durability?

    thanks

    Poly plays stiffer than mono and has better durrability. Mono strings have pretty bad durability in my opinion it starts shredding quickly and if you are a big hitter it wont last a week.

    do you mean multi vs mono? cause if your are the multi will play softer.

    Mono vs Mono poly is the same thing. Mono describes the construction of the string while poly describes the material of the string. There is poly and co-poly which is poly with other materials added to it but it is still a mono construction.

    Mono construction just means one solid string.

    Their construction is all the same just that the Polylon SP is a little softer from what I've read on here than the regular Polylon.
