poly of the year 2012...
 
whats your vote? will it be tour bite still...

Torres 11-21-2012 03:56 PM

Why would it be Tour Bite? The only website that ranks Tour Bite highly is String Forum and we know that their polling is ridiculously flawed, ie pollsters can rank down strings they've never even played with, or rank up one string even though they've never played with the other strings in the poll. It's all absurdly skewed.

Tourna Big Hitter Black 7 for me. Great string.

Yes.. me too. Great Price/Performer

For outstanding performance in a new string: Lux 4G.
Won't talk about price.

The string of the year poll at stringforum is a reputational poll.

Their surveys of strings is a year-long continuous process so that's the best source of string information in the world.

The reputational poll should only be used in conjunction with their database.

4G was a nice surprise.

pvaudio 11-21-2012 08:23 PM

^^^And it's also terribly flawed and should only be used to see what is trending in a given category.

tistrapukcipeht 11-21-2012 08:30 PM

To me:

#1- Yonex Poly Tour Spin
#2- Yonex Poly Tour HS
#3- Luxilon 4G

Overall from those I used for a long time and liked them more, my favorite top 5 are:

#1- Yonex Poly Tour Spin
#2- Yonex Poly Tour HS
#3- Luxilon Alu Power Fluoro
#4- Luxilon Big Banger Original
#5- Tecnifibre Black Code

Well, everyone knows what my poly of the year is since it's simply my favorite, so let's see...poly of 2012? This wasn't a huge year for strings aside from 4G. Nonetheless, since I discovered it only this year (personally I mean), I going to say Discho Iontec. Does absolutely everything well. Could be better in tension stability, but it's just phenomenal everywhere else.

I also give a nod to BHB7, but it just wasn't for me although I know of many who like it.

Bartelby 11-21-2012 08:53 PM

It's probably also poly-centric, euro-centric and a little clay-centric but still stringforum is great.

And I suppose the RSI got it all skewed and flawed when they did their test, hey. Its only your view on it I suppose. Oh and Tennis Warehouse got it all wrong too.......?

Please do post a link to RSI and TW saying that tour bite is their poly of the year.

Oh that's right. You can't because all they did was rate it above average, and in the case of TW, super stiff.

roadworkky 11-22-2012 05:16 AM

Volky cyclone for me (may not have been new this year but I just started using it a couple months ago).
