    Seeing what the Polyester revolution has done for those looking for spin control, I predict the next big thing will be a string with even more resistance to moving on the string bed COMBINED with a thinner gauge - perhaps 19 or 20. Now THAT would be some real spin potential with awesome feel.

    Perhaps Poly manufacturers can make it even more stiff than it is now in its "bend-a-bility", possibly by putting a stiff core in the middle.

    Just my thoughts, any thoughts out there ?

  2. Why would anyone want a string that is even stiffer?

    They used to make steel strings. Perhaps you're looking for a set of those?

    I don't mean stiff as in the way that kevlar is stiff (low elongation). I'm talking about the strings ability to stay in place in the mains without shifting about. Tension would have to be lowered as it is with a kev or poly job. But if the gauge were thin enough in combination with the non-movement I spoke of - that would be awesome.

    The next big thing... Synthetic that plays as good as natural gut but doesn't move like poly
