    As of 2015 Isospeed Touch Poly V18 1.12 is the softest poly yet tested, rated at 156.

    The new polys are coming down dramatically in terms of measured stiffness.

    Yes, definitely.

    Lots of choices measuring in the 160s, 170s, and 180s.

    Basically the same stiffness and syn gut, now the question is does the same stiffness transfer into the same arm friendliness?

    Yes, it should.

    (In my experience, low stiffness polys do feel rather soft. Although I will admit that multis tend to be more arm friendly.)
