    I really enjoy hitting with these two strings, Dunlop Black Widow and Tourna BHB7, especially the spin I get. What I am looking for is a similar shaped string that has a little more pop on it. I have tried the thinner version, but it didn't make enough difference and when I go too far down in tension I lose too much control.

    Any thoughts?

    Hybrid it? Get a racquet with a higher swing weight? Swing faster?

    Try BHBR. More pop, same if not more spin. You'll like it.

    In my hybrids I like the softer mains, so with a shaped poly it just saws right through it. I end up breaking them within an hour. :evil:
    I play with a pure drive plus and I have pretty good bat speed. The strings just feel more dead than the normal poly. Maybe its all the spin:confused:

    I will give that string a look.

    How about Dunlop Juice or Polyfibre Black Venom? Any experience with these two?

    Both have less power and less spin.

    I tried BW and liked it quite a bit -- however I have been stringing my racquets lately with Mamba O-Power which I find affords me a little less spin than BW but more control coupled with good power and comfort. I used the BW 17G previously and have tried the O-Power 1.18 and 1.23.
    If you like BW but want a little more controlled power I think you might be ok with the O-Power. I prefer the feel of the thinner gauges but you might have to experiment a bit with the gauge and tension to find the right feel for you.
    Incidentally, I also tried the Pro's Pro Plus Power (1.18 and 1.23) -- as far as I could tell they are the same strings as Mamba's O-Power.
