    I currently use PHT 16 in the mains and Xcel in the cross. Looking for a new stick and thought i mite as well try a new string setup as well. I have heard good stuff about n.vy and just wanted to know what the difference between the two are. Also, i wanted to stick with babolat strings so if you think babolat makes a better poly ( something alot softer would be nice) i would like it hear it.

    Xcel is going to better in every department. However, n.vy is a good cross string. I've had it in a pro open, pdr, and Exo3 graphite with a poly in the mains. The new n.vy frays a lot more than it used to though. As for a softer poly, try rpm team. It's basically a softer, longer lasting version of rpm blast.
