So far though, the best string i've tried with the Ki5 is Technifibre NRG2 17, but it doesn't last long enough.
I predict the Fluoro won't be much different from other soft polys. For me, that usually means it's fine for the first 3 hours, but then I start feeling a numbness in my wrist after that. I hope your experience is better.
PPA 16 is a great multi. Lately, I've been shanking a lot of balls and breaking PPA prematurely. That's its biggest weakness for me, but if you're playing with a 17 gauge multi, you probably don't have that problem or else the 17 gauge wouldn't last you 2 sets. Normally, I find that PPA lasts longer than the majority of multis.
