    I'm looking to switch from Topspin Cyber Flash to something a little softer so I can stick with a full poly setup and save my arm. I can't decide between these two. Can anyone make a strong case for one over the other?

    Thanks!

    Cyberblue is definetly the softer of the two...ive used it in my crosses before and it feels nice. Get good touch and control...def. worth trying at least

    Both are soft and feel good in full setups. I think if I had to choose, I would prefer a full CyberBlue setup. I felt I could get a little more control and spin from CyberBlue. Both are nice and soft too, so they should not be too harsh on your arm.

    Both are similar strings. I prefer Big Ace mainly due to the fact that Cyber Blue has too much power! And with too much power, there is absolutely no control. Otherwise, both are softer than Cyber Flash. Test both of them out and see which you like more.

    I've tried both with pro supex titan crosses.

    BA -- stiffer; more control; a bit harder on the elbow
    CB -- softer; more power; a bit easier on the elbow

    Overall can't go wrong with either. Both good value; softer copolys; more durable than synthetic or multi.

    I've always found the Topspin strings suit my game more than the Pro Supex. But there are plenty here would say the opposite.

    So I agree with all above, best to get a few sets of each and determine which works best for you. They are so cheap, its worth a few bucks to find the one that works for you.

    Very similar strings, can't go wrong with either one for the price. Big Ace may be a smidge on the stiffer side.

    I just switched over from CF to CP mains and am very impressed with CP's superior tension maintence. I guess I should try BA too!

    I was hoping to buy a reel of one and be done with it since it's so much cheaper that way. Since it seems I can't go wrong either way, I may just go with the Big Ace 1.25. I really like that red color for some reason.

    Do you think these strings are better than Tecnifibre Pro RedCode?
    I like Pro Redcode, but I'd like to try something else.

    Both strings are softer than RedCode... and I do think they are both better.

    Thanks
    I'd like to try some hybrid. Can you recommend me some crosses with Pro Redcode mains?
