    I like Blast on my APD at 50lbs but it dies too quickly for me. Which Kirschbaum poly is most similar to Blast in liveliness, pocketing and spin? I don't want too stiff a poly. Durability not an issue.

    Try Pro-Line II first. You may also want to try Black Shark/Spiky Shark if you like textured poly's. The black shark will be less powerful and a tad stiffer.

    Not sure how much it is like the Blast, but I play well with the Pro Line X. It provides me more spin than any poly other than Lux that I've tried, and it is reasonably comfortable

    Agree with the post above. Pro line X is a very nice string.

    I also use pro line x and I love it. It's also a great price

    Pro line x is a great all around poly.

    Could any of you compare how stiff Proline X and Evolution play compared to other polys you've played with? Testimonies are varied on this subject and the data suggest they are stiff. I'm looking for an above average spin producing poly that plays on the soft side, so I was considering Kirschbaum strings.

    Spiky Shark 17G would be good and they are on sell.

    Pro line x is not as stiff as lux alu power but not as soft as lux m2 plus.

    Pro Line X is my favorite of the Kirschbaum strings I've tried (Spiky Shark, Pro Line II) I'm trying out Super Smash Orange soon, so no comments on that, but Pro Line X is great.
