    There MAY have been a thread about this... But it was from a while back. Its a fairly stiff poly, right?

    Try Dunlop ICE... Its a crisp, everything you want in a poly, poly. I read somewhere that Gamma Zo Tour (I think) was similar to it.

    Maybe try Pro Red Code? Its another fairly stiff, red poly that you might like. Revenge is super stiff, so the two strings listed above may be worth a try, though they will offer a slightly different feel.

    Cyclone Tour feels pretty soft to me compared to Cyclone.

    Cyclone Tour is the twisted one and it's softer than Cyclone.

    I strung it up at 52 pounds

    I felt it to be too stiff.

    When u hold it out before steinging it can almost stick straight out

    Maybe it felt stiff to you, but you can use TW compare strings tool to test and it shows Cyclone is stiffer than Cyclone Tour.

    CT plays really soft, I've had two sticks strung up with each and played side by side with them and its pretty noticeable.
