    I like Babolat Xcel but that is expensive, Babolat Attraction is a little cheaper, or Prince Syn. Gut Multiflament this is cheap also.

    These are some choices, hope I could help

    Wilson Reaction doesnt last a whole lot longer either. Try Head RIP Control, REALLY good durability for a multi

    Dunlop Max Comfort is not bad either

    Head's RIP Control and Dunlop's Max Comfort--the latter after the briefest interval--afford next to no playability, the typical reason for choosing a multi.

    My own experience is that

    Head Rip Control is a decent string but seems to have a big tension loss.

    The Prince Multi IMO is no wear near as soft as the TF string.

    I am not big on Polys for their harsh feel however I have converted after I tried Signum PPP Pure 1.18. Feel like a syn in a poly and only $9. Goes down to about $6 if you buy it by the reel.

    People who bring up their string's durability always seem to be overlooking string savers.

    Some people rate the Yonex 850 also. I found it too soft and lacking crispness but it appears I may be alone :).

    I liked the Prince multi mentioned below. Reaction if I remember correctly was good also

    I like HEAD RIP control myself, as well as Biphase, but that's ALWAYS on backorder.

    My stringer said that RIP control was like stringing barbed wire, basically, but it still feels great to me!

    I string RIP control, it is stringing like barbed wire, it friggin hurts.

    Honestly, it's one of the reason why I hybrid RIP control, because it's a pain to weave. It's like barbed wire with lotion.

    But the result of RIP/Reaction hybrid is excellent! I'm currently trying a cheaper alternative for the cross (E-Matrix).
