    Depends on the flex, I use the Redondo and I like it with gut mains and poly crosses. Nice feel and isn't too soft.

    Softer string for sure, but also sometimes a hybrid with poly mains.

    That must be a real comfy hit in a 18 main racquet.

    Yeah, I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it. I don't feel the uncomfortable stiff bed that everyone dislikes about kevlar. Its the best string combination I've used. Topspin, power, control and ultimate durability.

    But I'm probably making it sound Godly. I do have to break it in when I first string it.

    Lol! I thought the same thing. Be careful of your elbow/wrists with that combo at that tension.

    :)

    I've never really understood this sentiment. Before I went to Poly I used Gamma TNT2 Fusion Plus 16 also at 65. I've never had any arm problems whatsoever. I really, really, dislike a soft stringbed.
