    Best I tried was Kirschbaum Pro Line I 1.15 and Lux BBA 1.12

    Of course CF 1.20 and MSV Hex 1.10 were also very, very good.

    Luxilon Ace, Turbotwist and MSV Hex are some of the thin polys I really enjoyed. Another worth a mention is Signum Hyperion 1.18. PLII must be even better in 1.15 as I thought the 1.20 is good stuff already!

    Hood, I thought you liked PLII better than PLI. At least it's what In understood. What's the difference about those two? from what I can see in the RSA string table, PL I is a tad crisper and holds tension better. But are there another differences?

    Are you guys using full poly or hybrids with these thin polys? I always can't decide what to put in the crosses. I can choose from Maxim Touch, Spiral Flex, Gosen OG Micro, and Forten Sweet --- too many variable, especially if you consider tensions too.

    I didn't like MSV Hex, and I've tried it on 1.18mm and 1.10mm.

    Using a full poly stringjob with these thin polys is just great, especially if you like low tensions.
