    Can anyone compare: Supex Blue Gear Platinum (I gues the blue one is the same) and MSV Focus Hex and Signum PP HEXtreme. The Signum is much more money, probably not worthy... maybe just the first two in 17 gauge. I'm thinking use them on mains for hybrid.
    Thanks.

    My favorites are:
    1) Blue Gear
    2) Hextreme
    3) Focus Hex


    The Blue Gear gave the most spin. It is also pretty soft. The Hextreme is also a great string but I felt it had much less pop and not as much spin. The Focus Hex I just hated it. No increase in spin and felt kind of "dead".

    Yep, I feel the same about the Focus Hex. Played today BG, but too tight for me ( 59 + 60 SPPP cross). Will try tomorrow BG platinum and Gut on cross. Do you think the BG is softer than MSV Hextreme? Thanks

    ^^^ You mean Signum Hextreme? Yes I found Blue Gear to be softer.

    Sorry, my question was if the Supex is softer than MSV.

    Played today first set w. hybrid BG+Armour, second Big Ace full. For some reason the Big Ace feels better, more control and power...?
