Not quite the 80's, but I used Prince Synthetic Gut Soft until the day it became "Elekton" string.
Loved the string. Being a teenager at the time, loved how it came in all kinds of colors, and it was dirt cheap so my part-time job could sustain it.
"Elekton" just didn't play like it, or maybe I stopped using it because I couldn't get it in purple/blue/green anymore.
