    Whats the stiffest string you've ever played with? I've used a lot of harsh polys but I keep wanting something stiffer, any suggestions? (Apart from Kevlar)

    gamma edge. if you purchase 2 packs of this, use the metallic strings of both for your racket's main & cross, you might get the stiffest string ever

    Harsh polys are too soft...someone doesn't like to volley. Lol. I didn't realize there was anything between "harsh polys" and kevlar. Man, I feel sorry for your arm if you like these strings because they're stiff. Maybe you could try a poly in the mains and aramid in the crosses. That might form whatever kind of compromise you are looking for.

    lmao yea I do stay back, its got Kevlar, I hate that stuff....Ti-Mo is a bit to soft but almost harsh enough, and I think I'm going to try Pacific Poly Force, and the other 303 one ( I forgot the name) lol

    I think if you're looking for a "stiffer" playing string, the luxilon/newer co polys are not what you're looking for, which might be nice for your wallet ;)

    Babolat Ballistic
    Prince Let 'r Rip/Polygut
    Gosen Polylon (i would suggest this last)

    The mentioned Gamma Durablast is similar to let 'r rip, IMO...
    Kirschbaum Super Smash series is a good one, maybe you had them a little loose..

    I know you've tried the SSS, maybe Ballistic will fit the ticket.
