Which one? Give you reason for your choice.
I just ordered a poly sampler pack with these strings in it. I am wondering which one to try first.
all good choices. Big Ace has been the most talked about, but Cyberflash has been the big voter on some website membership poles. SPPP does hold tension really really well, but i don't feel any control with it at all.
Big Ace for now. One Vote.
My response goes to Big Ace...just gives me all I need and it doesnt move at all either Not to mention it comes in 3 different colors ....red yellow and white
Cyberflash 17G & 18G all the way. The others are good but the Cyberflash has the perfect blend of power, control and comfort. This at a great price per reel. Great profit maker for me
lol I hear all these good things about Cyberflash and here i have a 17g reel of i and hvnt used it yet lol..damn strings wont break on my current racquets!
cyberflash and sigum pro are the best! The only 2 poly that I use frequently.
CF is pretty good. SPPP is soft but lacks control and doesn't give that much spin IMO.
Big Ace (particularly Micro) is where I'm going next.
CF 17 for me. Great spin, OK feel, a little power, hybrids well with PSGD and Gosen Micro, and very cheap in reels.
Full CF, no hybrids, very nice.
None, My string of choice is Blue Gear 1.28 M and Titan crosses
Amen to that! cept i like blue gear with sup gut and spirel flex
I love Big Ace mains. Lots of control, and even a little pop. I cannot really compare the strings (so my comments here don't matter that much) since I have only tried that one out of the 4. However, I haven't found a reason to try anything else because BA has MUCH better tension maintenance than Luxilon (from my experience. not just opinion) and is pretty cheap...
Oh, and as a hybrid, almost anything goes well with it. I have used X1 17 gauge crosses (terrible durability), Synthetic Gut Titan 17 gauge crosses (no issues with it), and PSGD 16 gauge crosses (no problems with it, I just have easier access to it than ST). Out of all these, I think I like the PSGD the most as my cross.
I use Signum Poly Pro Plasma Pure. It has a softer feel than some other polys, holds tension for a good bit of time, and provides enough spin for my game.
Cyberflash is also an excellent choice. It's a little bit stiffer than SPPP and provides more spin than the Signum.
Both CF and SPPP has touch of muted feel. But still fine strings. BA doesn't have that muted feel and nice all around string.
For all the people who've played with both Big Ace and Cyberflash and voted for big Ace on the poll, do you like Big Ace more because it's softer or just because of it playability? Just curious b/c I like both but I'm not sure which one to go with in a reel as they both have characteristics that I like.
I've only tried BA, CF, and SPPP. I absolutely hated sppp. And BA and CF are extremly close, but the BA had a little more umpph on everything by a little margin though.
By the way, I am only going to be using these as full string jobs.
To me, Big Ace delivers just about what Cyber Flash does but does a few things slightly better. It holds tension better and really allows great ball control.
Hmm, I've played with both and I can't say I agree or disagree with you. IMO they are both great polys. Both offering certain characteristics that make them equally great. I think ima go with Cyberflash for a reel though.
lol it was a hard decision for myself too...but I went with reels of both haha
luxilon ftw.....its soo crisp but can go dead w/topspin! =(
Personally, Signum Pro Poly Plasma is the WORST string I've ever played with.
Haha, good decision ^_^.
Neither... I choose Topspin CyberPower 17g
I know the feeling...can't bring myself to cut out strings..just like to hear the snap too much...unless I feel my arm falling off.
haha arm falls off...ouch!
Don't wait for strings to break. CF is so good you want them in your racquet NOW!!
SPPP one if the BEST poly on the market, IMO.
a few have written that Big Ace is about in between CF and CP in terms of performance, etc...would y'all agree?
and what does premier ace play the most like? CF?
i prefer big ace. it is just a great overall string. great control and tension maintenance, with better feel than the other strings.
Big Ace seems to have really caught on...
big ace =))))
supex poly power soft- is it similar to all these mentioned polys?
Is cyberflash 17L full hard on your arm at all?
Depends on how much you play and stuff. But compared to other strings, yes, because it is a fairly stiff poly.
