    Where is that? Perhaps they call it something else.
    It's a yellow, 5-strand, twisted, fused string. 1.21 g

    I've strung Hitec Multifibre, Gutpower 1.30 and Gutex Ultra 1.25.
    I sent some for Mikeler to test. You can read his Reviews.
    Gutex17 is a great racquetball and squash string. Good, low-priced substitute for Prince Premier LT Softflex, Head Megablast, E-Force Oxygen. etc..
    Not for hard hitters with open pattern Tennis Racquets.
    Same with HiTec Multifibre. Good crosses for poly, though.

    Hot Stuff would probably be a very good cross.
    Try 52/56.
    Let us know how it works.

    Sure, but not with my K90. I will try it with my old ProKennex Copper Ace which is stiffer than K90 (just my feeling).:twisted:

    Oh, I think Plus Power is soft enough with 54/52 on K90. The control may not sufficient if drop it to 48/52. ProKennex Copper Ace is 90 head as well, so 52/56 should be okay for me.

    The shape of Copper Ace is a bit different from K90, so I strung it @51/54.5lb finally. I will try it by this week.:)
    (The colour of Plus Power quite match with the Copper ACe.:lol:)

    Here is my few comments for my new strings just tried last night.

    Racquet : ProKennex Copper Ace (90 sq in, 16x19)
    Stings : Pro's Pro Plus Power (51lb) / Pro's Pro Hot Stuff (54.5lb), both strings are easy to string.

    Power : Low to Medium
    Feel : Comfortable, no problem to arm even give it a big hit
    Control : Fairly control and better than full bed Plus Power
    Tension : Cannot comment after 2 hours ground stroke practice, the tension still okay after the practice
    Spin : Just okay, you can expected that the surface of Hot Stuff will not help for spin
    Movement : No movement for Plus Power but move a bit for Hot Stuff

    General : After hitting with full bed Plus Power with K90, I tried this new combination strings. The feeling of first hit is very comfortable and the sound of hitting is very soft. The ball tended to flat but still giving fair spin. The string bed is very soft, so you can hit harder and the ball still in. I will classify it as low power string bed with good control. I will try lower tension next time to see if I can gain more power & spin.
