    I know a lot more about tennis strings than you do that’s for sure, which you proved how little you know when you said that the new Laserfibre company has a string that’s as good if not better than Supernatural Gut. Lol. Funny the Laserfibre rep even responded saying that they are working hard to try and make a new version of Supernatural Gut. Which obviously proves that they don’t have anything like it yet.

    Too funny... Like I said... keep using that ALU Power at 70 Lbs. Lots of players and stringers in the know are stringing poly in the upper 60 and 70s.

    Been stringing and playing longer than you have been alive I am betting.. :).

    I have play-tested both... the Supreme 2.0 is better for sure. The durability of the of the old product was bad... short string life for sure. The new product even in the 17G is very durable for a multi. BTW.. have you played the Supreme 2.0? I am on my 6th set???

    There are pro players that use poly in the 60’s and some at 70 lbs. so I guess you know more about what works than they do. Plus they change to new string jobs every half hour so rec players cannot compare their tensions to pro players unless they change strings that often.

    Hi LF, how are you compared to TechnoF X-one Biophase 17g (Multifilament) and which one of your strings would compete with them?

    Also, a q to everyone.
    Why one would use Poly in Crosses and natural gut (MultiFilament) in Mains and vice versa?
    I was thinking to try Vorso Mains and Natural Gut in Crosses for preserving arm.

    Thank you.

    LF has two nice multis. Supreme 2.0 17G would be the one I would try. I have used the other. The Supreme 2.0 has a very impressive outer coating that helps with snap back and durability. I have played both side by side. The Supreme 2.0 is a better price /performer in my book. X-1 might have more free power. Supreme is more stable over time and consistent. The x-1 17G sort of turns into a rocket launcher. The Vorso is quite soft for a poly. Has some shape to it and also holds tension well. I was playing last season... Supreme 2.0 17G (mains) and Head Sonic Pro 17G in the crosses. It was a poor mans Fed set-up. Held up great.

    I also play a full bed of the Vorso 17G in my BLX Blade 98 18 x 20 and it is a great match for that frame.

    Hello TW Shopper,

    Thank you for your question. First, I will say that TF X-One Bi-Phase is a very good PU Multi. However, Our lab data shows that Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 is about 12-15% softer than X-One. Not only is Supreme 2.0 a soft and extremely comfortable PU Multi, it has a fantastic low friction polymer coating to help reduce friction. When you compare the two strings from a performance standpoint, I think you will be very pleased with the performance of Supreme 2.0. If you compare the two string from a cost perspective, you will thank me for the $6.00 per set savings when you purchase Supreme 2.0.

    Btw...if you do try a blend of Vorso and Nat Gut, I would love to see how that plays for you. Vorso is such a unique poly, as it has almost twice to elongation as most poly's. I think blending Vorso with Nat. Gut will be a fantastic combination! I'm going to try it myself and we can compare notes.

    Thanks again for your question. We really enjoy communicating with our current or perspective customers.

    Best regards,

    Team LF

    A lot of my teammates love your polys, especially the smooth. I tried both the smooth and the edge, a hybrid would be amazing with the string to ball friction from the edge in the mains and the slick smooth crosses. Color is nice too. Actually, one of my friends in college is sponsored by you guys.

    Styksnstryngs,

    Thank you so much to you and your teammates for your support of Laserfibre strings. We strive to make all of our customers satisfaction with Laserfibre products our top priority.

    I would say the hybrid combo of Edge in the mains and Smooth in the crosses would be very interesting and potentially a spin monster. We would love to hear your feedback when you try it out.

    Always great to hear about the college players enjoying Laserfibre strings. Edge and Smooth are our best sellers for the college teams.

    Thanks again for your support!

    Team LF

    Yeah, I can't imagine too many college players using a multi, and the vorso is probably a little soft for harder hitters.

    Why laserfibre doesn’t make natural gut anymore?

    You are correct... Vorso seems to be perfect for folks trying poly for the 1st time or older players with sensitive arms. I love the Vorso... I am indeed an older player.
