    Silent observer for most of the time here. Stumbled upon this combination and I have to spread the word.

    I love poly (specifically signum pro plasma pure mains and OG micro crosses) = spin, control and power when you need it, BUT my arm hurts after 2 or 3 consecutive days of playing so have been looking for an alternative combination.

    Tried a few things but Ashaway kevlar 17 mains at 45 and Isospeed control crosses at 53 are AWESOME. Crazy spin and control, good power, great pocketing and check this, great arm comfort! Its lasted about 7hrs so far and i'm pleased with that. When the crosses break i'll just replace them.

    Bare in mind the first hour and a half with this combo is horrible as the kevlar needs to soften, but when it does wow, this is great.

    I was scared away from kevlar for ages but if you string low and let it soften it is great.

    I use a liquidmetal instinct tour xl for reference.
