Polys slide and snap back whether they are rough or sleek, because of harder surface and increased stiffness. The only thing that comes close in terms of effortless spin is natural gut / poly hybrid, because of elasticity (snapback) of the gut mains and slippery surface of the poly cross.
I was thinking the exact same thing, but what other choice do i have if I want similar playability with completely different strings. There just ISN'T a compensation. Though i'm going to give these strings a shot anyways. I have the thirst to know. what these play like. I'm going to order hexy fiber 16 and have a go with it.
