    I ended up with an M-fil 300 by accident and have decided after seeing some of the guys here using red mains or red crosses with hybrids in this frame I would go for a Red poly in my mains. Just curious what your favorite RED poly is and why. So far my list is:
    Pro Supex Big Ace
    Tecnifibre Red Code or
    Kirschbaum Pro Line 2

    Thanks for any feedback on the subject.

    How would you compare the two? Just trying to get a little feedback before I order some of each actually. I am going to order 1 each of the 2 I pick and put 1 full pack in each of my frames.

    The only RED poly I've played with is KB Proline II 18g, and it is one of the best I've ever played with. The only string I like better is TS CyberPower but it's a light blue color.

    Favorite Red Poly

    My order of preference is Kirschbuam Pro Line II, Red Code, then Pro Suprex. Pro Line plays soft enough that I can play as a full poly and the other two, I have to use hybrids, in an NCode 6.1. Plus the Pro Line is offered in four different gauges. I've played long enough with Red Code to know that it will shear even in the 16G. Also break in time correspond to the order of preference with the Pro Line requiring the least.

    i like Big Ace 1.25... a touch more power than SPPP and i like the feel, a touch soft... and does not move.

    I use pro red code, it's a really nice string. I haven't tried the other ones so I don't really know.

    Ah it looks like I will just have to buy all 3 to try out. The M-fil 300 came with Gosen Polylon and honestly it's terrible. I am sure it's the string as I have had this string in three different racquets and thought it had the most plastic feel of all the strings i've hit so I cannot wait to cut this stuff out.

    So far though I think the Pro Line II will get strung as a full poly or Pro Line II mains and Yonex 850 Pro Spin in the crosses as my first stringjob in it.

    Don't forget about the MSV Focus and Focus Hex in red.

    Hehe for DISGUISE!!

    I have 2 racquets of the same model and thought it would be bloody funny to string one with Tecnifibre Pro Redcode and the other with Tecnifibre X-One Biphase Red.

    But in all seriousness, the Pro RedCode seems a lot more stiffer than the other polys i've tried. I used Luxilons (non-red) but they were too stiff.

    Red code is very confortable for a poly. You can't go wrong with it.
