Disneos - In my humble opinion, I don't think a soft multi like TF x1 Biphase is a good choice for any of these three sticks you've mentioned. X1 is awesome, I played with it for many years, but with a decent swingspeed, all those frames have quite a bit of pop. You'll need to make the ball dive into the court with top to have it stay in the court, and access to easy spin is a big help. If your arm can stand it, and you don't come to net a bunch, a not so stiff textured poly like Dunlop Black Widow 18 or BHBR 17 would be a good choice for baseline bashing. As a doubles specialist I can tell you that textured poly is simply awful for volleys though. Gut mains with poly crosses will give you all the access to easy spin from the baseline, but is much easier to volley with for sure. And lastly, if you are not snapping the crosses in X1 in about 6 hours or less, you might not have the swingspeed or topspin to tap into all the qualities of the Pro One, it's not a tweener, and is geared more for developed strokes. I get 20+ hours out of a good gut/poly set up, and its far less expensive in the long run (and better performing) than the premium multifils.

problem is i live in texas and it tends to get humid here quite a bit, i either need a good multi or a soft enough poly because i really cant take the risk or more pain or injury and cant afford anymore downtime, feel like around here a gut string wouldnt last long.
