    I cannot decide between Signum Pro Poly Plasma and Technifibre Pro Red Code. Your opinion? Thanks.

    both are very good. But it depends on with one you are getting.

    Get SPPP, better in almost every catagory except "cool factor" (red color)

    Almost is correct. PRC plays . Depending on what racquet you have SPPP can feel very stiff. Both are great strings.

    I meant to say PRC plays much softer.

    I would probably recommend SPPP from personal experience. I found PRC to be dead and quite stiff, resulting in some arm discomfort. This "deadness" also eliminated any kind of feel that I possessed on my shots. I highly recommend Topspin Cyberflash however, found this string to play great despite being outside your preferences.

    I have reels of both SPPP 1.18/1.25 and TFRC 1.25. Comments from my customers and also my personal exprience is that SPPP has a slightly more "crisp" feel after stringing. TFRC has a slightly softer and more comfortable feel.

    Power, control and playability is very even between both.

    However, as a stringer, TFRC is much easier whilst SPPP requires a bit more care to prevent kinking. The SPPP has also snapped whilst stringing and during play on the first outing. No such issues with TFRC.

    I have my Tour Diablo strung with RedCode and it hasn't failed me yet. I don't know if it's my frame or strings, but i've noticed a lot more control than my other stick (Bab Pure Drive Cortex+ strung w/ hybrid natural gut and pro hurricane).

    Plus, the spin I can produce is inhuman with the Technifibre, so if you have a topspin forehand or slice a lot like I do, go with the RC.

    Hope this helps!
