    Hi, what's your favorite copoly that you've played with strung at very low (sub40) tensions?

    For the past year I've used BHBR16 strung in the high 30s and am quite happy with that, but I'm nearing the end of my reel and was wondering if there's anything else I should try. I've also had good results with SPPP Hextreme and SP Tornado/Hyperion, but I like BHBR slightly better.

    Thanks,
    kaiser

    solinco revolution 17g at 30 pounds for me .. same spin as tour bite at low tension but very soft with tons of control . I also like solinco outlast at low tension , much less power but a lot of control and as much spin as you would need

    I like Tour Bite, but nothing beats Polystar Energy. I string my frame at 34 lb. It's magic.

    Thanks for the suggesations and sorry for the long radio silence. It strikes me that all but one of the suggestions are Solinco offerings. Does this mean that Solinco strings are particularly ameanable to very low tensions, or is it just coincidence?

    I like the sound of Tourbite, but it is 50% more expensive than BHBR here in Europe. Is it that much better at very low tensions?

    On the other hand, Polystar Energy is even less expensive than BHBR so that sounds very interesting. Tony, could you expand a little why you like it so much? Have you ever tried BHBR?
