    I am wondering which string to try out for a new replacement poly. which one should i get? Any other inexpensive polys that provide good spin potential?
    Thanks for the future advice.

    That depends on what you cross it with. Bgu will give arm problems if too tight. Og micro cross, forten sweet, forten nylon cross, etc.

    If you played with either string or both of them can you please tell me what you thought of them and which one should I purchase.

    Very pleased with Volkl Cyclone 17g in full bed, but I reduced tension quite a bit to help with my tender arm/shoulder. If you play spin, it's great.

    I also liked the playability of Big Hitter Blue 17, but because of its softness, it notched and broke easily.

    Haven't tried Blue Gear, but I hear good things.

    I suggest you try both. Feel and playability of string is very personal. Both are reasonably priced.
