On a side note, how much crisper is BHS compared to BHBR. can anyone compare the spin potential?
I really didn't see the huge difference that some BH fans tout. Silver is a bit crisper, and more predictable than Blue. The best way I can describe it is that silver bites a bit more and gives a bit more of a linear shot. Blue pockets a touch better and gives you that extra "Hmm, that should have been out" factor. Personally, I liked Silver better than Blue but that's just me (Note, I also played them in 2 different frames). Generally though, I don't like surprises with my string bed. A perfect example would be Dunlop Black Widow. Fantastic spin potential, super comfortable. Horrific tension maintenance. From one play to the next it's drastically different.
