    Hey guys, I've been a mostly copoly, cyberflash and big ace, user. But I tried out Technifibre NRG 17, and I forgot the great feel of lots of ball pocketing and power.

    I broke it today, so I was wondering what multis should I go on to next, that play similar or better.

    Thanks!

    NRG-2 is a very good multi.

    I like the Yonnie 850 as well. It doesn't have the same level of feel and grab as NRG, but it maintains its playability for an impressively long time, much longer than NRG.

    Please note, though: the 850 comes in 16 ga / 1.30mm only.

    Also, I've heard very good things about Wilson NXT Tour from a friend who knows strings. I have a set of 18 ga / 1.21mm -- looking forward to trying it soon.

    I have NRG-2 17 in a Prince Mono and the strings just aren't moving. I've been serving hard with it and played quite a few sets of doubles and some singles.

    I haven't had the longevity issues people have complained about, although it doesn't hold it's tension as well as 16 gauge natural gut. What does?

    If you ever want to find similar string for something you like go to the string page in TW and look at the bottom. For NRG2 go to

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACTFUSA-NRG17.html

    I like the Wilson K Gut string and if you are using a poly blend the 125' reel comes in handy. TW also has a sale on the Wilson K Gut now.

    I second this strongly. The 850 maintains its playability until it breaks and lasts longer than NRG2. I recently bought multiple sets of the Yonex string from the user breakpoint on this forum. I put it on my K90 and the feeling is amazing. Also the NXT Tour is a very good string even better than Yonex but it is almost double the price on yonex. Go with the Yonex baby - you won't regret it.

    Agreed with all of the posters that the 850 is a very nice string. Play with the NRG 18 and that is a nice string.

    850 Regular - it has more feel and playability than the PRO version which has a spin coating.

    I was referring to 850 regular. Haven't tried 850 Pro yet.

    Aren't the Yonex strings limited to 16 gauge?
