    Im looking to buy a reel of string and am undecided. Im looking for an arm friendly co-poly with decent spin that holds tension well. Im undecided between SPPP, msv Hex, and cyberflash/blue.. Any ideas?

    I have used Cyberblue and SPPP, cyberblue is more arm friendly, but tension maintenance was shocking compared to sppp!

    Cyber Blue is one of the most arm friendly polys I've hit, for my arm at least. I'm hitting SPPP 18g in a hybrid right now, along with BAM, and just finished with Cyber Blue in a hybrid.

    I like how SPPP plays more than the other two, but even in the 18g, it's less forgiving on your arm.

    Cyber Blue is also the most powerful of the three I've discussed.

    Go with Cyber Blue.. another pretty arm-friendly poly that has everything you mentioned is polystar energy.. very soft poly with good comfort and spin

    I believe I remember reading, this is not from my own experience, but Polystar Energy isn't the best for tension maintenance. Is that the case?

    Cyber Blue does loosen up quite a bit as you play with it. Balls will fly on hot days with these strings, though.

    My suggestion is Topspin Concept Pure. It's a less powerful version of Blue, but equally good and soft.
