Soft Poly's that are easy on the arm
 
It took me a long time to go back to poly's and found
these are easy on arm then.
They are:

Pro Line 11
Hurricane
Spiky Shark
Sonic Pro

All are 17 gauge and I use ther Sonic pro full bed in a flexible racquet.

Since I don't know very much about strings, looking for a relative scale to understand - how would you compare to say a multi/syn guy? It it close or far off?

Beast xp, out of the ones I've tried

tlm 07-26-2012 08:03 PM

Your right about sonic pro very soft for poly, weiss cannon turbo twist is also very soft.

Luxilon big banger xp is pretty good

The softest string out there by the Racket Sports Industry after natural gut, surprisingly, is a polyester multi, Wilson NXT Control.

I used to string it in hybrid with gut (NXT-C mains/gut crosses) but the when the gut wore a little and got rough, it'd snap the NXT pretty quickly. I now play with a full NXT Control setup.

NXT control is not a poly.

Answer to SportsFan
 
Multi's or syn are suppose to be soft and have more power.
I have found some syn to be stiff and have no power.
The polys are great for control and spin whether you do full bed or
hybrid.
The multi's are good and inexpensie way for hybriding with ploy to
get max playbalility with your racquet.
I still like Gut to hybrid with as does the Pro's like.
Be careful with stiff polys as it can get TE then.
Just experiment and see what you like.

I've tried full beds of...

Prince Beast XP in my AeroPro and found it very arm friendly...
TF Code Black in my AeroPro and found it very arm friendly...
Head Sonic Pro in my Microgel Extreme MP and found it playable but i had some shoulder and elbow pain...

I prefer Code Black out of the three strings for playability, it was stiff to begin with but after an hour of hitting it softened up and became extremely comfortable. I had it strung at 58lbs.

For the first 2-3 hours many latest generation polys will be easy on the arm. For the next 5-7 hours none of them will.

No it is not, you think because it says polyester and nylon fibers in a bed of polyurethane that makes it a poly string?

Sorry bud but you are completely wrong on this, poly string is a solid piece of plastic, there is no nylon in a poly string. Nxt control is a multi fiber string, notice how there a combination of materials and layers in it, which immediately disqualifies it from being a poly string.

Here is the details on NXT control below please read the composition section. Notice how it starts with Multifilament Xycro micro fibers and then lists polyester and nylon fibers. This automatically makes it a multi not a poly. When they talk about it does not have the shock of monofilament polyester that is why because it is not a mono string, polys are mono which means one solid string.



Featuring polyester and nylon fibers in a bed of polyurethane, NXT Control provides all the benefits of a great hybrid. Offering the perfect balance between comfort and control, this one is perfect for comfort seekers who want to keep more balls in play. It's also great for power players who want more control but who don't want the impact shock that comes with monofilament polyester. A must try for players seeking an arm friendly control string.
Gauge: 16 / 1.32mm
Length: 40 feet / 12.2m
Composition: Multifilament Xycro Micro fibers with polyester and nylon fibers
Color: Natural

Indeed, NXT Control is not a poly.

Playing with NXT Control in a Yonex 89T demo and I am very suprised how well this string plays. Feels like a multi but I have the same control as a poly. The strings are new so I can't comment on the durability. I am not saying it is a poly but I do see some poly characteristics in its playability. I normally cant hit extreme crosscourt angles with multis but NXT Control gets the job done (atleast when they are fresh).

It's both. You're both arguing over nothing.

Its not both its neither - a hybrid multifilament is what RSI calls it.

Actually its a monofilament poly string that is a solid piece of plastic.

'Poly' simply denotes the material used, not the form of construction.

No one cares.

Ramon 07-28-2012 11:09 AM

Regarding internal hybrid multis, like NXT Control, the fact of the matter is that if someone is looking for a string that plays like a monofilament poly, he is going to be extremely disappointed, so there's no point to comparing it to that type of string.

Very true. You cant take something that contains polyurethane, and say it is not polyurethane.
