    looking for a poly with lots of spin and not much power. i am guessing there are lots out there, but would like to hear some suggestions. the cheaper the better, and durability and tension maintanence are not all too important because i string for myself. i have tried Gosen Polylon Ice and Poly Polar, and will be trying tecnifibre Spinfire soon. any suggestions are welcome. thanks.

    i am leaning towards CyberFlash and Pro Supex Big Ace. they are both reasonably priced and seem to be quality strings. are these strings soft enough to do a full poly job with? i might just cross them with og micro to save some money anyways...

    Kirschbaum P2. It's a stiffer, low powered poly that plays really consistently and has low tension loss. It's good for about 40 hours of play for me and I'm a pretty hard hitter.

    sounds like it has the characteristics i want. will have to look into it. do you use a full job or hybrid? i was thinking about finding something soft enough for a full job for less power and extra spin, but could also go for a hybrid.

    Tennis Warehouse asked me to test the P2 a while back. Here's what I wrote:

    I don't know if I wrote it in the article, but I always use full poly stringjobs.

    SPPP definately. Generatesly a heap of spin and gives so much control. A low powered string though.

    Although technically not a polyester, the Luxilon "rough" strings are definitely worth a try...they play very well, and have great bite for spin.

    Rough does nothing for ball spin, all it does it just grind into the cross
