    Well i play with a POG 93 and have been testing out some new string combos. Any suggestions for something i can try, i like crisp feeling string. ive tried klip lightning which i loved because it pocketed the ball so well. and im using Livewire Xp mains and topspin crosses right now and its a little too soft, and the livewire broke tonight without even fraying. any suggestions would be helpful, thanks!

    A friend of mine used Prince Polygut 16/Prince Synthetic Gut Duraflex 16 with pretty good results.

    the only thing that feels good on my POG is just some plain cheap synthetic gut. I find wilson synthetics to be better than princes.
    I have tried using Hurricane mains + synthetic crosses, it felt good, but a little too stiff for me. (It may be good for you)

    I think it's on the stiffer side yeah. Maybe try the string combination I have in my signature that I'm using on my O3 Tours. It's pretty nice and I've got a weak wrist that I'm trying to care for but it's making life livable.
