    I need a softer poly because of arm tension I like the looks of Luxilon Big Banger Ace 18 any suggestions?

    It used to suck at holding tension, apparently, now it is the best... Not sure how they reformulated, though. It is a good to great spin generator.

    I know you have also tried Gosen Polylon SP. How would you compare that to Poly Polar, especially in terms of arm-friendliness?

    how about gosen polylon 17g...it is just as soft as synthetic gut, but less powerful and more durable :p
    I have been playing with topspin cyber flash 17g at 53/55lbs on my ncode 6.1 95 and i tell ya, it is spin friendly, soft and comfy. Try it out for yourself

    Timo 18 and ace 18 are nice, Timo is nicer then ace.

    Signum poly-pro plasma 18 is awsome. Softest of them all.

    Only problem with these is durability. I brake timo in 10 hours, ace in 8 and sppp in 5.

    btw, I just installed SPPP Hextreme yesterday (1.25mm), it's very very nice. Lots of spin.

    Maybe too much..... But spin serves were awsome....

    Topspin backhand was too much spinned... i'll need to get use to it.... was always falling short.

    Polar poly and cyberfash. Forget Luxilon strings if you want soft.

    Pro Supex Premier Ace is softer than Topspin Cyberflash. It is also lower powered and spin felt less. Tension has been stable for the first 5hrs. My experience is in a hybrid.

    since you are saying that premier ace is softer than cyber flash... which string has more control? better durability?

    Both strings are priced "cheap" for a poly. cyber flash- $68 and premier ace- $59

    what are you hybriding this string with?

    More control: PA
    Better durability: I don't know. They have not broken on me. My crosses break first.
    Hybrid string: Klipper Zyex multi. Second time was with Gosen OG-Sheep Micro
