    I'll probably just string one of each, in the mains with VS gut in the crosses. I'm interested to hear from those who have used both, or perhaps just those who have used either.

    I've heard they're both fairly soft for their string type, and I'm curious how they compare. I also heard they hold tension relatively well also.

    Thoughts? Kirschbaum Pro Line II vs. Luxilon BB Ace?

    I used Lux BB Ace a while ago. I really liked how it played, especially when I used OG Sheep Micro crosses to cut the harshness down.

    It did have one flaw: after about two weeks of use (2-4 times a week), it went dead and had to be cut out.

    That's just me, though. Some folks aren't bothered by that, and, in fact, prefer that dead, no feel and no power phase.

    Thanks.

    I'm leaning toward Pro Line II, but there isn't much information on this one. Rave reviews however over at the string forum.

    Pro Line II is better, but Ace is a good string aswell, you should try both.

    Any experience hybrid poly with nat'l gut 15L???

    I'm bored with full gut 15L right now, I still have 4 set of them. I'm looking for a power and durable poly. Do you know which one is good in this term?? I'm playing with mid size racquet and tention about 57 -55 lb.

    I'll probably take your word for it and try Pro Line II. I've played with Comp. and it was great.

    I have not played BB Ace, but I have been playing a 50/50 of X-1 and Pro Line II. It's okay, but doesn't offer me anything more than I'm able to get from an all X-1 string bed. The all red does look nice in the T-Fight though.
