    Hi LanEvo,

    Just wondering, what makes kevlar your string of choice? Over say a co-poly? Or anything else?

    Regards,
    Steve

    well for now im really into the thinner poly strings because i like the spin generation from polys, alot of multis that i have tried have too much power, like nrg2

    Kevlar would most likely win but that is just a guess.
