I will certainly say that it strung up nicely for a poly - it felt stiff coming out of the package but weaved quite well. I think it seems softer on the stringing side than PL2, but maybe I'm just crazy.
As an update, I've got a couple of hours on the Pacific Classic/PLE setup. So far, playability is very good, spin is very good, but the feel is just a little bit more muted than I like. It's certainly useable, and I'll use it until it is worn out, but I think I'd look for something a touch more crisp over the long run.
For people wanting a softer poly to cross with gut, I'd say PLE is in the running for sure. It's got good amounts of pop and ample bite.
