    Interested in this string and was just wondering from those who have used both what their preference was and why.
    Thanks.

    I like them both for different reasons. I think the 850 Pro has more control and plays better at lower tensions. The 850 seems to be a bit more durable and more suited to slightly higher tensions.

    Both are soft and have good feel. I would probably say 850 Pro would be my favorite if it weren't for the lower durability. I can only get about 6-8 hours out of 850 Pro even on my 18x20 PSLs. That's mostly teaching and drills with a little bit of practice.

    Pro is a very crisp multi and a good one to try if you are coming from crisp syn guts.
