    on a certain site, it claims that it is polyester; but it is a co-poly, correct? By the reviews, I've heard it to be an excellent string; with decent comfort in a poly, especially going to poly from a syn. gut for the first time. is this correct?

    You are correct, it is a co-poly. It is a decent string with better than average tension retention for a poly.

    Poly isn't supposed to have any power. It's a control string for those who create their own power.

    It is not true. What if it is a soft poly like Cyber Blue and thin gauge like 1.20mm or Big Ace in 1.15mm? Should give you a lot of power.

    difference in gauges will not give u any more noticable amounts of power. the type of string isd much more important.

    SlapShot is right, poly is not a power-oriented string. people use it for control. if u're trying to get power out of poly, u're looking at the wrong string.

    Compared to what?

    Compared to natty gut or a good multi, poly doesn't provide any additional pop that you don't bring to the table yourself, even with a soft co-poly.

    When I tried Cyber Blue 1.25, it had so much power and no control that I could barely put a ball in the court. That is definitely a very very powerful poly.

    It's all relative to racket, tension and string compared to, right?
    (maybe a few other things too)

    of course, 5263. racquet, string, and tension combinations will change playability vastly. i dont think many people on here would say they could barely put a ball in the court with cyber blue, but it just goes to show how opinions can vary greatly on this board.

    Yes, I use "player" racquets so they are not powerful. When I tried the Cyber Blue, I still had my BB11 racquets midplus and if you look on TW, it is quite a low powered racquet. The Cyber Blue though just made it a cannon!

    okay, thanks. Also, for a reference, I strung Pro redcode at 53lbs today, and I absolutely hated it, it was too overpowered.
