    Ok, I'm nearing the end of my current reel of PSGD 16 and am getting ready to place a string order.

    Is ProSupex Syn Gut Titan 16 a one for one replacement for PSGD 16 in your opinion?

    if you are looking to replace your PSGD, the closest string I have seen so far has been the pro supex syn gut spiral flex

    haven't really played psgd. but i heard it was a crisper string and out of titan and spiral flex i would go with spiral flex. it is the crisper out of the two. can't really find anything to complain about with the string. unlike most strings that i find goes mushy after a while spiral flex plays good till the end for me.

    The Spiral Flex is advertised as being similar to PSGD, and I'd trust the opinions posted above.

    From what I've read on here, Titan is much softer, and in the realm of Forten Sweet.

    yep. titan is definitely softer. many people on this board has stated it as well. for some reason though the rsi stiffness rating says it is actually stiffer than spiral flex contrary to what it is promoted as and by player experience.

    any difference in play between the Black and Amber colors?
