    I have no clue about strings , it is not my strong point. Is poly better for your arm ? I want to get big banger ace 18 because they're good for the blx blade , but I have had BAD TE so I have to be sure . Thanks ! :)

    Better than what? Better than Kevlar strung at high tension? Yes.

    But if you want something good for the arm, move away from the polys.

    You want to look into:

    * synthetic gut,
    * better yet, multis,
    * and the ultimate in arm comfort--natural gut.

    or you could try a hybrid if your arm could take it

    If you've had elbow problems, please, please stay away from poly and poly hybrids. Why risk long term injury? It's simply not worth it.

    APDGT with Revenge is no pillow, my friend. I would try a hybrid first, just because gut/multi in that racquet is going to launch balls farther than NASA launches space shuttles. If you still have arm discomfort, you can go for a lower powered multi.

    Search for Gamma Edge. Great for an arm, a bionic arm.

    Prince Original Synthetic Gut, hands down! It's good for your money and has reasonable durability.
