I'am looking for a very soft poly that still has good bite.
Tour bite is not a soft string, perhaps the 1.10 gauge is but the thicker are not. I would recommend the 16Lg of tour bite soft as it will break less quicklyWould that be the 1.10 mm one? I think I've seen it both in 1.10 and 1.15. I've only tried the thicker ones and they felt very stiff to me.
Most polys need to be replaced at 20 hrs of play. Even sooner if you really crank the ball.I've been using Yonex PTP 1.20 after being a multi user. In a multi I'm 52lbs and went to 47lbs in the poly. ... still noticeably stiffer
They've also got notches throughout after 4 matches so they don't really slide anymore. Great for first couple matches, but the feel deteriorates soon after. I think a lot of polys are like that?

Thanks.... only the 1.10 available here; I mean, the 1.10 is the thinnest available. But it also seems quite soft according to the database; I might try it.No, it is the 1.05 mm, the softest poly according to TW University. The stiffness, if memory serves, is 130-something.
Agree. A lot of club players (3-4) just keep using them for ages... they don't hit them hard enough to snap them unless misshit. .... side note...my old multifilament had awesome tension maintainance and would snap due to fraying eventually anyway.Most polys need to be replaced at 20 hrs of play.

Polys go dead way before breaking!Agree. A lot of club players (3-4) just keep using them for ages... they don't hit them hard enough to snap them unless misshit. .... side note...my old multifilament had awesome tension maintainance and would snap due to fraying eventually anyway.

I once tried some Gamma samples and liked them.I know Gamma strings don't get much praise on these forums, but they have a strong relationship with my local shop so they string them a lot. I just picked up a new racquet from them and decided to try out the new Gamma Jet 16L. I've only hit with it on the machine for a couple hours thus far, but initial impression is that I like it quite a bit. Haven't had enough time with it yet to provide feedback as far as tension loss goes.
Genesis Black Magic is a soft poly, Prince Warrior Response is a hybrid like string, that is a syn-gut like solid core, but unlike a syn-gut core wrapped in multi-fibers, it's Warrior Response's core is wrapped in a ploy-like material. It's a soft and unique feel to hit with. I also like Luxilon Element. It's similar to Warrior Response, with better spin potential, but also more than twice the price.I'am looking for a very soft poly that still has good bite.
I just tried it and I am switching to this string now. I recommend you to try it. It is a new different string, Power, Great Feeling, good durability. I have to say for me it was love at first hitTW seems to be liking the new signum Pro yellow jacket I believe it’s called. Haven’t tried it myself tho
Is this still the #1 softest Poly ?As far as lab numbers go, Solinco Tour Bite 20 takes the top spot.
Might want to give it a try if you're not a string breaker.
Sometimes the numbers do not tell the truth. For example, signum pro x-perience 17g has a rating around 220, but it is definetely softer than black widow. You cannot rely exclusively on those stats. Your hand is the best judge!Is this still the #1 softest Poly ?
Solinco Tour Bite 20 = 136
Velocity MLT 17 = 153
Volkl Cyclone Tour 18 = 159
ISospeed Cream 17 = 178
Solinco Hyper-G 18 = 180
Kirschbaum pro line II 18 = 183
Dunlop Black Widow 16 = 193
That string is only soft when it loosens up, otherwise at 23kg to stiff and at 22kg just bearable and i m not too sensitive!Weiss Cannon Ultra Cable 17L

However i do find black window as soft as the numbers sugest. Only problem is that this Dunlop locks up in fullbed. Maybe better in hybrid?Sometimes the numbers do not tell the truth. For example, signum pro x-perience 17g has a rating around 220, but it is definetely softer than black widow. You cannot rely exclusively on those stats. Your hand is the best judge!
The proof is in the eating of the pudding. Cross strings can easily be replaced when you clamp your racquet.Need some advice. I just picked up a pack of Polyfibre Hightec 1.20 for crosses in a poly/poly hybrid in an Angell TC95 18x20. Anyone have any experience using this string in a hybrid? Curious about tension maintenance and durability and looking for reference tension suggestions. Will probably be using Cyclone 18 mains mid-40s.
