Why do you always ask about Tecnifibre X-one Biphase then???

It was too springy for me.

Maxim Touch 17 is very powerful. Like gut it is great on serves and overheads but hard to control on groundstrokes.

This is a great string, just lacks a little feel on touch shots.

Mantis Comfort
Gamma Live Wire XP (very similar to Professional but considerably less expensive)
ProSupex Maxim Touch

I think the Technifibre strings are overhyped personally.

Another off-brand that is very good is Tier One Triumph.
Mantis Comfort is the softest string but not durable. I'm getting ready to try Gamma Pro soon. If I like it, I'll try Live Wire XP. I just finished with Tier One and it is very similar to my favorite string Discho Microfibre.

NRG2 16 had no spin for me either. RIP Control 16 has the most spin but I found it lacked the control and feel I desired.
