I gave up on poly as well. I was in the middle of a 10 or 12 game losing streak ever since I switched to poly. I strung up PPA 16 last weekend, played my first match with it and won.
it could be luck, I may have won it either way, I can't tell. all i know is, I have the "feel" that i'm looking for with multifilament. I don't have that feel with poly. Sure, I get tons of spin, but what good is spin if the shot doesn't go over the net or is hit wide?
My next purchase is a reel of PPA. that stuff is magic.
