    Which string is better overall? Best bang for buck?

    1. TopSpin Cyber Flash
    2. Luxilon ALU Rough
    3. Weiss Cannon Silver String
    4. Kirschbaum Spiky Shark (for best of buck think of the 3 pack for $24)

    Or people that don't like paying 4x as much for a string that goes dead in 3 sets. :)

    5. Isospeed Baseline.

    It's $40 for a 660' reel and it's a nice soft/comfy poly

    That's about $2.50 for a full job or $1.25 for a hybrid.

    IMO, this is by far the best deal on the poly market, currently.

    As enticing as buying a reel sounds, I dont really want to buy a whole reel without having even tried playing with the string first. Plus I cant seem to find the Iso-Speed Baseline single set.

    What about the Weiss Canon Silver String or the MSV? Anything good there?

    I want to buy 2 sets since I just broke both of my Babolats and I want to try something new.

    Haha forgot about the Baseline spin for bang for buck. Great string, I'd buy it if it were $80 a reel.

    Yeah, thats understandable. I've got a reel of baseline spin and I could cut you off 40ft for a few bucks. I would try both the weisscannon silverstring and the msv focus hex. Both are great strings. Me personally, I like the silverstring a bit better.

    Sliverstring overall is the best IMO. Holds tension and playability extremely well. Cyberflash is almost half its price though and that's a very good string as well.
