Best Babolat Multi for spare stick?
 
What's the best Babolat multifilament for my spare stick?

I would ideally like to use natural gut, but seeing as the racquet will probably spend most of it's time on a shelf in my room, or in a sports-bag, I'm not sure that is the best choice. Am I wrong?

The racquet is different from my regular stick (I use a Wilson Steam 100) so matching is not an issue. I only use it to test strings, or to complete my session when the strings snap on my regular stick. Cost isn't an issue either as it's not my main stick. It's currently strung with Wilson Sensation 16g. I want to give Babolat a try. Maybe a 17g multi.

What Babolat multies do you like? I'd prefer control/feel over power if that helps.

XCel is arguably their top end multi. It hits with a fair amount of pop but it does have plenty of comfort! :)

It is for sure. Addiction has more spin and is cheaper but plays very stiff for a multi.

Try technifibre NRG2

Thanks for the replies guys. I'll check out the XCel.

I don't think they have technifibre at the shop I go to.

I got the XCel 17g. Hit with it today. Feels great even though it's a bit stiffer than the Wilson Sensation 16g that i normally use (might be the higher tension that i used). It's still soft on the arm and feels like it has more spin on the slices/topspins.

Thanks for the recommendations.
