used to use poly in main and n gut in x's, now because of TE , thinking of trying to put n gut in main and soft poy in x's, will it helps my TE??? still have plenty of poly such as:
1.bb alu power
2.bb alu pwr rgh
3.bb ace 18
4.volkl v-rex
5.klip k-boom

TE? Stop with the poly already! Although you derive the feel primarily from the mains, the crosses are what provide the cushion and poly certainly AIN'T what you're after...

Have to agree on poly not being a good idea, can't comment on the Volkl string but K-Boom is a lot softer than any of those bb strings - as I have tried them all. Signum poly plasma is a little softer still, than K-Boom.

I find Babolat hurricane soft in comparison to big banger alu rough and Toalson's poly. Hope that comparison helps.

i get TE and use signum pro poly plasma. feels good
I am the same case, it is the best poly I have had so far. But I am on alert for TE/wrist pain and will abandon the polys forever, if symptoms appear again.

I also agree. No poly (even softer ones & I've tried them all) will EVER be as comfortable as a soft multi and certainly not as soft as gut. Stay away from polys all-together if possible.

KLIP Kboom is the softest poly I have ever used. Try it a 17 gauge. excellent playability and tension retension as well..

Crosses do for comfort, don't make the mistake...

The key of your problem is that poly or any stiffer string (stiffer than mains) put on crosses cause to saturate the frame dampening property, and even little mishits feels like playing only with the crosses.

By this way you'll feel all the frame *torsional stiffness*.

First you should swap the strings and always put the softer into the crosses, than chose a softer hybrid combination anyway.

I used a relatively soft poly from Technifibre....spinfire/maxipower maybe? I think that it was a newer string and was 17g. I liked it

I disagree with your theory. I string polys on the crosses. So, I know what I'm saying.

Gosen Polylon 17 SP mains with Forten Sweet in the crosses... very arm friendly set-up.

That's not a theory, It's so easy to realize too

Ripper, maybe in your case you would play well both hybrids anyway.

My experience says that lateral mishits with the stiff string on crosses could be very shocking, just few mishits around entire a session and I can feel all them at the end.

Played either with ALU Power or the similar SP Poly-Megaforce on crosses and I can definitively say that (occasional) lateral mishits end to be very punishing for the arm/shoulder.

Of course the intensity depends from the kind of frame, for ex. wilson traditionally make very stiff frames torsional-wise (a key factor for good volley control and back-spin game), and I could assure anyone that putting certain poly on the crosses on a n6.1 95 (for ex.) could give very harsh response until one hits dead center every time.
