    I strung up one of my extremes tonight before I went to go play with a technifiber 17 gauge synthetic in the mains @ 68 pounds and gosen OG sheep 16 in the crosses @ 65 pounds. I must say I liked the feel, cant speak for durability as I only used it for 6 games. It gave be a very responsive crisp feel that Ive never had before with any other poly syn hybrid or all sythetic or all poly. This is the tightest I have ever gone in a racket.

    What string could I try and string tight as a MF and get that same crisp feel? Im thinking something like a multifilament, I dont really want to use gut, because its too expensive.

    Try fullbed Wilson Red Alert.
    It's fairly stiff. You may not need to go that high, but you could.

    New syngut. Best syngut upgrade since Gamma TNT, Lightning XX, and Babolat N.vY.
    Firm, comfy, durable, and not too pricey(esp by the reel).

    Between the four what would u recommend for a full bed on a blade lite at 56-58 lbs. Arm friendliness/comfort first priority. Playing Forten Sweet at present.

    Try the Red Alert. It's a step up from the Forten Sweet. (which I like, too)
