    Maybe, a very soft multi just won't be very good in the spin department, I'm not sure... Anyway, I've found that multis with polyurethane coatings bite the ball well. X-One Biphase is popular right now, because Djokovich, supposedly (I wouldn't bet on it, though), uses full jobs of it.

    Since cost is not a factor, I highly recommend Wilson K-Gut – and especially K-Gut Pro which feels like a chainsaw tearing into ball fur, producing massive spin, with phenomenal control for both spin and flat shots. Both are listed by TW as arm-friendly – I found that to be true, especially at low/mid tension. Note that the Pro is not quite a soft as the non-pro-version -- as Pro produces greater spin.

    Others may also recommend Technifibre X-One Biphase, used by Novak Djokovic. It’s also listed as arm-friendly, but not ultra-soft.

    I would try out gamma professional spin if you don't mind using $20 on strings. I've tried regular professional and its a pretty good string, just too expensive for my budget.

    I'd agree both K Guts are good enough to recommend for this. The difference between K Gut and K Gut Pro is much smaller than that between NXT and NXT Tour, though--with K Gut Pro being more comfortable than NXT Tour. Don't be mislead. When using both side-by-side, one-after-the-other, I frequently found it hard to remember which one I was using--not at all hard to know with the NXT twosome. For a less expensive alternative with a firmer feel too, you could try Tecnifibre's TrC.

    Technifibre Multifeel might be worth a try. I didn't have any problems with it's spin production, it was soft, and it's reasonably priced.
