    I intend for one of these strings to be my main and Tecnifibre x-one biphase 16 to be my cross, both probably strung around 55lbs. I think I may want the more powerful of these two strings... not positive, though. Which of these would you recommend?

    Those strings aren't very similar. Tour Bite is stiffer feeling and is one of the best spin strings you can buy. If you are a flatter hitter there isn't much reason to buy it.

    Any feedback on SPPP 17L vs TB 18 (or TB Soft 17)

    Had reels of both for awhile. For durability go with Signum. For everything else go with STB if you don't mind the short life. Sig plays muted, comfortablish but sucks at the power and spin department. STB is lousy at durability but plays like a dream. Given that you are using bi-phase, a "feel" string, as cross- STB is a better match up.

    Go with the 18 gauge for max playability. Enjoy.
