    What do you guys think? Which string is overall the better string minus the pricing of the two.

    blue gear,hybrids well with other strings ... full blue gear job is a bit overkill..

    I have just strung a racket with Blue Gear Ultra 17, and the spin is much better then Spiky Shark. Touch and power are about the same.

    I would say Blue Gear Ultra is a better string than Shark !
