Surprisingly, I think I prefer the Silk in this frame. The stringbed feels very uniform and offers a very quick response. I'm also able to get a bit more control on my groundstrokes with Silk.
That said, I probably wouldn't pay full price for Silk.
It's odd that the name of the string is "silk", but its one of the stiffest feeling multis around ??? But I agree Homi...it feels like a syngut to me.
