    Which do you like better? Is there even a difference?
    The only one I seemed to notice was that the red had less string movement and was stiffer.

    Clear is clearly better :)
    Red is stiffer and hasn't got the same feel.

    The red has less vibration but the feel is crisper

    RED feels like a Dead X-1 biphase.

    I personally dislike all multis however if I had to chose it would be clear.

    Used one set of red and only had a hit for about 90mins with clear but the differnce was obvious.

    I am probably not the best person to answer this question as im more of a poly or a gut hybrid guy!

    I agree 100% with Fedace. X-1 is the best multi out there and the clear flavor is the only way to go....

    clear is better for full bed. Better for feel.

    Red is better for hybrid.

    Definitely clear. Almost feels gut-like. Im not saying im agreeing with this(because i haven't tried it) but some people say Laserfibre is the best multi on the market.

    Kind of off topic but, is X-1 better than some of those low-end natural guts like gaucho and global?
