Have you tried blackout, pro pro version of bc?
Spot on Meaghan, yes the downside of the BC is that it's a bit pricey, I have a reel though and have switched a few friends onto it who help finance my addiction
I haven't tried blackout but I have tried Genesis Black Magic and found that to be a very good clone, just not quite as lively and didn't find as much spin.

I would agree with most comparisons, I was also at the Yonex launch of PTS string at this year's Aus Open and that is exactly how their rep described it, a stiffer and lower-powered version of PTP. Even at a lower tension I think you would still notice greater stiffness but that is only comparative, the PTS isn't an extremely stiff string. I don't think it has as much pop but probably feels a bit crisper that PTP.
I currently have Signum Pro Firestorm in one of my frames, that is a great string in terms of power and feel.. about as stiff at PTS.
