Dyreex/multifibre had little spin, pop, ball movement comparatively. The strings moved all over the place like a full bed multi. Not easy on the arm either. Felt stiff. Part of it could be I'm used to sweet gut/poly and another part is my tennis muscles have atrophied from not playing for a year.
Next test, full bed Dyreex. If it doesn't perform, I will have a 600 ft reel for sale.
P.S. To be fair to Dyreex, I've never found poly/multi to play as well as full poly or gut/poly so this hybrid test may not mean much.
I think we are on the same page when it comes to L-tec 4S as the best cross to use with natural gut mains.
