    I got a reel of it for 50 bucks and still didn't use it.

    RPM Blast--- Biggest price/shame ratio I found. Durable as all hell but I'd rather play with kevlar. Only string I can remember that I cut out voluntarily. Honorable mention to Diadem

    On the other end.... String that just blew you away and you did not see it coming... ???

    Yes, Iontec was great, both the pissy salmon color and black, but I def preferred the black. I don't touch multi so I can't comment much there but the natty gut they had was so cheap you may as well have sprung for it if you enjoy the playstyle.

    First String Job

    Yeahhh the barrel starting knot is the way to go for crosses. You can start with the PK but I've always just went barrel.

    Dollar for Dollar Black Knight is the most durable consistent string I've come across. T1 is AWESOME with 30% discounts. On a reel it's worth just cutting out when you feel like you're losing the magic.
