    I'd like to string my racket with strings similar to pht, but a little cheaper.
    im only fourteen, and the pro shop i go to charges like 15 bux for stringing, and i dun have much money. my parents wont pay for it
    i play really well with pht

    To tell you the truth , I am a PHT user and I don't think there is anything out there that will give you any response like PHT. It is a very unique string. BTW, do you have trouble with the PHT going dead? That is my problem, because I use gut on the cross , I feel I am wasting my money because I cut the string with the Gut imo having more life in them.

    I ordered 5-6 polys and I am going to give them a go over a period of time.
    I think I am going to start off with Pro Supex Big Ace 17.

    i dont have a wide experience with poly's, but pht has hit particularly well for me the first week or so, and then they die and its kind of a chore to hit with at the same level. But for that week they are some of the best strings iv used.

    I couldn't agree you with more. The first week I must say I play so well, get so much pop and feel. Then it starts to go down from there.

    I need to get a string that will give me the same response day and day out for a good amount of time, so that the Gut i use in the crosses don't go to waste.

    PHT is one of the stiffer polys out there. I dont think SPPP is a good replacement for it, it's on the softer side IMO.

    I'd recommend Topspin Cyberflash.
