    I heard Pro Supex Big Ace is fairly soft... I've never tried it myself though.

    I only have good experience with Pro Supex Big Ace, I strung it at 56 and have zero issues with my wrist or elbow. I have about 40 hours on the string and it still plays very very well. Took maybe 2 hours to get settled in and hasn't changed since. Bet of all, it NEVER moves.

    I like it !
