Best non-poly, spinny and comfortable string?
 
Guys, could use some help.

Which one?

Must be spinny, thinner? and comfortable enough? And ideally some power 2. Cant handle the poly, with my shoulder.

Head Rip control?

Natural gut.

You can have a look at this link. Personally, I am still trying Gamma TNT2 and Mantis Comfort Synthetic.

RIP Control and Hexy Fiber are the two spinniest multis. Hexy is softer has more power but does not last as long.

as long as you dont mind a muted type string, rip control is it.

RIP Control 16 mains with Hexy Fiber 16 crosses is a good combination. RIP give it durability and Hexy gives it comfort and touch.

Natural gut, it is more expensive than poly but the feeling is awesome :)

Veninga 10-12-2012 08:57 AM

thanks guys,

rip or hexy.

- which one is more powerfull?

- and read somewhere that hexy will go dead pretty soon. In 8 hours or something. Anyone any experience on this?

RIP Control is low powered for a multi but in the 16g is had some random springiness that I did not like. Hexy might break on you before the 8 hour mark.

Veninga 10-12-2012 11:46 AM

8hours for a multi... wow, that is the same as a poly.

maybe gut is the best choice overall then..

any other options to consider?

Try gosen og sheep micro 18g at lower tension. You will get surprise result in spin and comfort at a very affordable cost.
Normally i use 17g on my crosses with a soft poly on mains.

Veninga 10-12-2012 12:41 PM

ok, lets see if i can get it somewhere..

How does it last? 18g is pretty thin?! So brakable?

I do gosen og 18g on mains and 17g on crosses. Good durability, comfort and spin friendly. Look at the cost and your won't be afraid it break.
Now i only use 17g on crosses and switch my mains with different type of poly.

I used the 17g Gosen one time and it lasted a whole 14 games. :mad:

If you won 61 61 it was good buy:)

I'm going to have to say +1 for Hexy fiber and RIPc. I've been popping Hexy fiber around the 5-9 hour mark, but I've been swinging pretty aggressively lately. Definitely more power and (IMO) better feel. I'm actually going to move to RIP for less power, but i've played the 16 and reaaaaallllyy want to try the 17. I'm looking for a reel to buy or someone to give me a set lol.

If you don't mind premium prices, I met a solid 4.5 in another city that loves Gosen Powermaster. I didn't get his impression of its durability though.

My personal choice is gut. I found that the durability justifies the price, and along with that, it plays better. I always carry a spare racquet with synthetic strings in case it rains or the courts are damp.

Again, I found the RIP mains / Hexy cross combines the best characteristics of the two strings. It will outlast full Hexy and break at around the time RIP starts to feel mushy. It will also be more comfortable than full RIP, and for me, the touch was much better. Head's packaged hybrid, Intellitour, is also a pretty good combination, but I liked RIP/Hexy a little better.
