Laserfibre Supreme 2.0... Some early results.. Positive!

I have been testing and playing the Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 17G and 16G this past week.

We are looking at a real nice string. In most cases I am a poly (full bed or poly hybrid) player.

This is a high end multi. Strings up like a breeze. Has a nice coating that allows the string is slide back and forth, helping with spin production. The 17G seems a bit thick but that does not appear to effect the feel.

It is extremely comfortable on the arm. Plays a bit crisp but does supply a good amount of free power.

Pockets well and the connection to the ball is excellent. I have it strung in a Dunlop AG 4D 300 and a Dunlop M3.0... both stock and I am loving it. This is right up there with NXT and NRG2. It blows away X-1 17G (Not a Fan) . I think this is an more long lasting and better than NXT and Bab xcel. This string appears to be much more stable and consistent than many of the current and older multis. The guys at Laserfibre have set out to create for high tech offerings. The Native Tour and the Supreme 2.0 are really unlike any the string I have tested. The Supreme is a better Head Velocity and the Native Tour plays somewhat like Babolat Origin...but this is a true poly.. but with innovations.

I also have one frame strung with Supreme 2.0 in the mains and Head Sonic Pro in the crosses and that is playing great. The mains are sliding back and forth over the Sonic Pro creating some great spin and free power. Liking this set-up!!

I am also testing the Vorso 17G.. in my BLX Blade 98 (18 x 20). This stuff was made for the Blade 98.. :)

Again... I think a better version of Volkl Cyclone 17G.

Just some updates on the Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 17G testing.

This for the Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 (mains) and Head Sonic Pro 17G (crosses). I have been a long time poly hybrid user. This Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 hybrid with Sonic Pro 17G is really an outstanding set-up for many reasons. The Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 17G has a wonderful coating that allows the string to slide over the Head Sonic Pro and help with spin production. Also this coating seems to keep the mains from wearing prolonging durability. The comfort and feel are excellent and power output is there on demand. Comfort is outstanding for anyone with a tender arm / wrist or shoulder. Tension maintenance is better than normal for a soft high end multi. If they bring Laserfibre Supreme 2.0 to market under the cost of the high end players out there right now... they have a winner in the Price / Performer book with me. If you are looking for a poor man's natty gut / poly hybrid... give this a try when it hits the market!!!

good amount of free power
enough to consider this a high-powered multi? (ie TNT2, X1 Bi-Phase, NXT)

because on the laserfiber website their "Laser 1200" is their "power multi" and the "Supreme 2.0" is their "control multi"?

No.. I am coming from a poly world. Supreme 2.0 is indeed more of a control multi vs Laser 1200. I have played both and you are correct. I also played the Supreme 2.0 at 52 lbs.. so the power was quite good compared to a poly.

I have played both
thank you for the reply

was the Laser 1200 also more slippery than the Supreme 2.0?

also sorry for quoting you in two different threads. i don't pay attention to names when I am hunting for information like a dog w/ rabies.

The Supreme 2.0 is sort of one of those next gen hybrids... multi that plays closer to a poly. Yes.. more slick. Special coating... ie Head Velocity

Guess I said all of that above. :). Nice string.
 
I use Supreme 2 as the mains in hybrids with soft, round polys. I’ve tried Head Lynx, Tier One Ghostwire, Tourna Big Hitter Silver. About to try Signum Pro Firestorm.

So far, not much difference but probably my favourites have been Head Lynx (green) and Ghostwire.

would you consider this string more control oriented or power oriented compared to other multis? also, would you consider it resistant to movement or slippery compared to other multis?
I’ve been using Supreme 2 for over a year now so my memory of the feel of other multis is fading. All I can say is that, for me, it has the best balance of power, control, feel and durability among multis I’ve tried including Velocity, X-One Bi-Phase, and Tier One Triumph. It’s not exactly slippery but seems to snap back OK on a round co-poly cross if the gauges and tensions allow. I’ve never used it in a full bed.

I tried it a while back and thought it was ok, but much preferred the original Supreme. These new Laserfibre strings are nothing like the original strings that were excellent. I cant believe they can’t make the original Supreme, and only pray they would make the old Pro Stock which was the best multi ever made by miles.

can you comment on both the slipperiness and powerfulness (or lack thereof) of the supreme 2.0 and the old pro stock compared to other multifilaments?

It’s been a long time since I hit with the original Supreme but what I recall is it was a very good playing string with great feel and control. Not sure about the difference in how slippery the two are, just didn’t notice anything special about the newer Supreme.

The original Pro Stock was better than any other multi by light years. I actually preferred it over natural gut because it would not gain power like gut will. To me it was the best string ever made and why the new Laserfibre company or some other manufacturers don’t bring this string back is beyond me.

Back when this string was around Jo11y Roger also said it was the best string he used at that time except he would break it in a short time, but he can break about any string within an hour or so.
