2. Pro Supex Maxim Touch in the Mains at 61, Forten Nylon in the crosses at 58. This was MUCH better than number. Felt soft enough and comfy, but it lacked the feel and feedback that GPro gives me.

I have a lot of GPro but I hate to burn though it since I could be selling it to customers. There's just nothing else quite like it for me. It's soft, but not mushy. Comfortable, but not "spongy."

I would say the only knock against it is that it does lose some tension. But I'm also experiment with prestretching it, and I think that might resolve the tension loss issue. Although, for me, it doesn't matter that much, since I break it in about 6 hours anyway.

Maybe I'll try GPro mains and Gamma Syn Gut crosses next.
The GPro looks pretty beat up after a set. I don't expect it to last very long.
