What tension are you playing it at? I had to bump my B5E to 52 with Thunder Blast at 56. A little higher than most of the low tension hybrids we are typically hearing about. Agreed about this being a great setup for full on attack mode.

I have not tried that one yet.

Also, although the Prince is a pretty wide 16*18 pattern I am experiencing minimal string movement--especially for the first 5 or so hours. Durability is also impressive lasting right around the 12 hour mark (I do use string savers at notching areas which may help here).
I think i have finally found s super "elbow friendly" setup that still allows me to play aggressively and consistent.

All in all, impressed with this string setup and with the mini reels on sale at TW ($33.00) you are getting 3 full sets at only $11.00/per. Now, will I continue to play this string at upwards of $17/per pack--not sure, but right now am really enjoying the "boring" setup, but most importantly being able to play PAIN FREE!!
Hopefully that elbow pain goes away for good. $17 for a multi is too much. Might as well go back to natty at that price.
