low powered nylon?

Hi, what would be a really LOW powered nylon string? In the old days I liked playing with a monofilament, rekatively thick, nylon string, to get a dead feel and low power.
What would be a good alternative today? (I get a bot lost in all the new strings).
Most strings I tried are too lively and too powerfull. I did try poly but I rather stay with nylon.
thanks for any input!

In order to have low power, maybe try some comfort poly like the Mantis comfort poly in the mains and to soften it up even more, use Mantis comfort synthetic for the crosses.

If you are not a string breaker, try a full job of Mantis Comfort Synthetic. Comfy and low powered.
