You probably mentioned it somewhere already, but how does the playability of scorpion change over time compared to silverstring? And how is the surface of of scorpion compared to SS? Slipperiness? Dent-resistance?

I've been using SS as my cross with kevlar, and been very happy with its tension maintenance. But would like to find a slicker poly with at least as good tension maintenance as SS. By the way, I'm not sure why, but when I used SPPP as a cross with kevlar, it didn't hold tension very well, and the stringbed turned into a mushy sponge within a few days. But silverstring holds up much better and stays firm a lot longer.
