It's apples to oranges. If your arm can't take poly, it's not an option unless you want to restring it every 3-4 hours.
I just ordered some RIP Control 16 at the new price. I've been breaking too many multis on shanks recently. I'm hoping that RIP Control 16 will pass the shank test. I'll be using it as a main with a softer multi cross like Hexy or PPA. That combination seems to work for me.
