Compared to Polystar Energy, you won't find any other poly that's softer, has more power, does NOT go dead, and plays perfectly right from the start with no break-in required.
I've been using Polystar Energy 17 (reel) on some raquets. It was quite soft on my Prince Rebel 95 (R.I.P. T.T), but it felt quite harsh on my Dunlop Bio 100 (@48 lbs cross). Usually I bashed the stringbed onto the back of my shoe a few times to soften it out. The ball pocketing are different on those two. Now I want to try other options other than PSE.

@pvaudio: o yes, having more pop is a big plus, especially on mid size racquet.

List of suggestions:

Dunlop Black Widow ($12.95)
Kirschbaum Pro Line X ($8.00 - Buy 3 or more for $5.33 per set!)
Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution ($12.50)
WeissCANNON Mosquito Bite ($9.95)
WeissCANNON Turbotwist ($12.90)
L-TEC Premium OS ($16.9)
MSV Co Focus ($7.90)
Genesis Black magic ($7.90)
Topspin Cyber Flash ($7.49)

Thank you guys, I'll do my best to try some of those strings starting from WeissCANNON and Kirschbaum ones..... Unfortunately, they're quite scarce here. T.T

BTW, how about Volkl Cyclone? I suddenly remember I saw a Chinese store sold its 210m reel for about $65.
