Cyber Blue on MG Extreme Pro

I am getting this racket soon and I know it is stiff. I needed a string which is soft and I have read that Cyber Blue is a soft string and it is durable too. I was wondering if anyone here has the setups... What tension did you put onto it?
Or if anyone here has a better string suggestion on this racket please tell me.

I play mostly on the baseline. My strength are my serves(flat and topspin) and forehand. I felt my forehand is a little flat and I want to put more top spin into my hit.

Thanks

If you posted what type of racket and string you used before, we could compare it.

cyberblue is probably one of the softest polys around.

I used K surge previously and was using Enduro Pro 17 for its durability. I have never broken the string before. Enduro Pro has very limited feel to me and it is quite stiff I think.

I used an extreme pro for about 4 months and I had a few different stringjobs.

luxillon alu power rough @ 60
topspin cyberflash @ 58
pro supex blue gear @ 58
gosen micro sheep @ 58


....out of those the pro supex probably played the best. Good grip to add even more spin to an already spin oriented stick, softer feel than most, stable.


I know this didn't answer your question....just kind of adding to the thread :)

Yea, I have read in previous posts that BG is good but apparently TW doesn't sell this set up which is weird for a store this big.

I have blue gear in my Extreme Pro's with Max Touch a soft multi in the cross. 52/54 and really like the setup.

yeah I got mine from a different site when I ordered it, but I was happy that I did. I don't use that string anymore...but it was a solid string (and looked sick in that frame).

Kirschbaum makes a string called spiky shark that i've heard plays very similar to blue gear...im sorry that i can't tell you firsthand as I have not used it.

I think I want to try Cyber Blue Mains and Max Touch on the cross... What do you think? Both are soft strings... Maybe it will work well with a stuff racquet.

I haven't used Cyber Blue but would think is simular to BA as a soft co-poly. I would think it would work fine. When I used BA I bumped my tension up to 54/56. BG is a bit stiffer.

I used cyberflash for a while as a full string job in the MG Extreme Pro and enjoyed it.

I am actually about to use it as my crosses for my PSLs with natural gut as my mains.

I currently have Cyber Blue Mains @ 54, Fibre Touch Crosses @ 60 on my PT280. First, it felt impressive -- very soft/stretchy (even though Cyber Blue was wire-like when I strung it), and very different from other strings. But eventually I came to realize that I cannot really play with this. Too springy. I have to slow down my swing (sometimes considerably) to adjust. This is not a good adjustment. Not strong in the spin department either. All attempts at strong spin either end up slipping or sail far too wide.

The serves are fantastic, though. Never served better with anything else.

I would go up on the tension to see if that would give me more control, but PT280 upper limit is 60, and I am already there. I do not want to ruin the frame.

In constrast, on my second racquet -- PT630 -- I have Kirschbaum Spiky 17. It is not as springy, much more consistent over the entire face, and spin is great (the best ... among the strings that I have). This string (racquet?) pings on impact, so it does not feel as nice, but overall, I win more points with this setup than with CyberBlue/FibreTouch. I can also swing full speed without worrying about hitting long.
