    I'm currently using topspin cyberflash and luxilon big banger in the mains of my racquets, and i like the way the strings play (i like cyberflash a lot more than the luxilon), but they're a bit rough on my elbow. I'm looking for a poly string (or any other type of string) that plays like cyberflash but it a bit softer and easier on my elbow, mind that i use soft multi's in the cross strings of my racquets (NXT, technifibre X-one biphase).

    Does anyone have any suggestions? i'm thinking of trying out a softer poly like sppp or topspin poly polar

    Those have been praised repeatedly, though i've never tried either. One of those two with a multi would make for a crisp, but soft response. Good luck.

    Try Cyber Power, also the new ALU Power FLUORO, eventually sppp-pure ... and for a totally different type of poly try Luxilon Monotec Supersense!

    I like Hurricane the best.
    But Pacific Poly Soft is great, too...softer.

    Both great, coupled with gut.

    Softest poly is Poly Polar.

    Another soft one, but not remotely as soft as PP (no poly is) is MatchPower; it's softer than SPPP.

    Yeah I found CF 1.25 to be pretty stiff, much stiffer feeling than sppp 1.18 even though they're very close in stiffness rating.

    I wonder what CF 1.20 is like, anyone tried it?

    YonexDude, it sounds like you prefer stiffer setups, I don't know if you'd wanna go as soft as some suggestions; softer usually means more power, less control, less spin etc. SPPP 1.18 is close in playability to CF 1.25 but much more comfortable, I found.

    thanks for the input. I think I'm going to buy a set of poly polar and sppp and see how they work out
