    Hello all,
    Just wondering if you could help me out with some recommendations for my wilson k95.

    I've tried luxillon before but I cant take it because of my bad elbow. Ive been using cheap multis and synguts but now im looking to upgrade.

    Im looking for something that would be comfortable and easy on the arm, and most importantly give the best control, whether it be hybrid or full job I dont care.

    Id like to use a poly, if there is one that is easy enough on the elbow. but i also heard they lack touch/feel :neutral:

    thanks in advance for any responses!

    Well, recently my friend got a full string job with Technifibre X-One Biphase 17 string and he said it works like a charm. Its a multifilament string i think, he strung it on his wilson k 95 at 60 lbs. You can try if you want.

    Topspin Cyberblue or Poly Polar are softer new generation polys, they might be easier on the elbow.

    Try hybridding your polys. Luxillon works werll with X-1 Biphase or NXT

    a multi in my favor would be Tecnifibre multifeel. a poly in my favor would be Pro redcode or signum pro poly plasma.

    A hybrid of sppp or big ace mains and rip control crosses. Give this a try at 56/60

    I use Head Rip Control 16 in my 6.1-95 - 16x18 @ 58lbs and it works great. The string soft, low powered and easy on the arm. I also use Babolat Xcel 16, this string is softer than the Head R. C., low powered and easier on the arm. Hope it helps

    This suggestion hits the mark.

    You are looking for a high shock-absorption, low energy-return material, like polyofin or zyex, e.g., Isospeed or the strings Isospeed makes for Head (rip control, intellistring and their other ribbon technology strings).
