    Let me repeat what I said on that other thread:

    In the past, I used to try lots of textured strings. Some work much better than others, but they all have that problem in common.

    This is true for BG, too.

    The strings start out VERY low powered, but soften up into a manageable string. I'd look elsewhere if you're looking for sheer performance, but it does pack a load of bite.

    Blue Gear has tons of spin, not very soft compared to Big Ace or SPPP in my opinion, however there have been people here claiming that Blue Gear is softer than SPPP. All I know is that Blue Gear is NOT for everyone. If you have lots of spin now, then you do not need it.

    Yeah, hopefully it has the same power level of sppp and increased spin.

    I wouldn't say that it's super textured. There are some very narrow and shallow grooves the run the length of the string. You have to look close to see them.

    At the baseline...
    I´m a SPPP user and decided to try Blue Gear 16 @55lbs. At the begining the string had tons of spin and control. My initial impression was very very positive.
    After some few hours the string started to loss tension and control. Some of my shots landed in the fence. I cuted it out and returned to my original SPPP 1.18 @55lbs.
