    My first post in MONTHS, literally. Haha :)

    Well from the post title, my main racquet is a k90 strung with full OG Sheep Micro 16 at #47. I like the string, but since i've broken a string.. Once in my entire tennis life (Gamma LiveWire 16 i believe) i'm open to some alternatives. I like what i use, but i wouldn't mind a softer string. Also, i have no idea how 'powerful' OG Sheep Micro is on the power scale, so maybe i was thinking of something softer and lower-powered?

    Price isn't really an issue, but i prefer not spending 15 bucks a set, so natural gut is out of the question. I heard mantis comfort synthetic is a good multi?

    Maxim Touch is low-powered multi and has excellent pocketing, feel and touch. If you're a flatter hitter and don't require tons of spin, I would highly recommend it. Very well priced, too.

    Mantis Comfort is the softest multi I've tested to date and one of the lowest powered ones. I found Maxim Touch 17g to be too springy for my liking but it is very soft as well.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I was also wondering, where would OGSM be on the power scale ..from 1-100?
