Me neither. It's all personal preference, but for ME, it's not worth the tradeoff. The little bit of extra spin I get isn't worth it. I much prefer the feel and touch I get with a soft multi or gut main. After my racquet with full B5E snapped, I picked up my nat gut/copoly racquet and it was like "why did I ever leave you? "
For me, poly's work well as a cross with a nat gut or multi main. Gives a little extra spin and tames the power of the soft mains. That's all I will use them for from now on.
