Guess I'll see if I can get a replacement set but I'm probably out of luck. All I can say is that I hit a decent drop shot on the one I tried. This did seem to have a lot of spin.

So I used the B5E/MCS hybrid the rest of the 2.5 sets I played. I lost the first 4 games I played with that string. Definitely a different feeling than a full multi job. Once I got it dialed in, I played fairly well with it. Spin did not seem overwhelming but it was pretty nice in all areas of the game. I'll post a full review after I've hit with it some more.

Thanks everyone for the soft poly suggestions. Keep 'em coming.

Would Black Magic be good in a BLX 6.1 16x18? What tension do you suggest? I normally string poly at 57.5/56.5.
