    Looks like Discho Microfibre has been discontinued and was told it will not be restocked. Too bad as this was a fine playing multi at great value. Not sure if Signum Pro Micronite is really the same string as they are listed at .02mm larger diameter than same gauge Microfibre. Have others directly compared Microfibre vs Micronite? Also, there appears to be no source for string sets in the USA for a quick playtest.

    Microfibre looks very alive on their german site though.

    Mikeler I want to thank you for all you have done on this fine thread. Microfibre is listed as 1.30mm and MIcronite 1.32mm. Where you aware of any difference in actual diameter or playability between these 2? Do you know for a fact than Discho Microfibre was just rebranded Signum Pro Micronite?

    You will need to put the terms Mantis Comfort Synthetic into your favorite search engine.

    So I used to play with Wilson sensation as it was a decent multi I could buy in a reel for a decent price. The price went up substantially a couple years ago. Any similar multis you can recommend for less than $90 a reel?

    How come you never reviewed Alpha Gut 2000? TW seemed to give it a good review especially the black.

    prince premier control is 100$/reel. 90$/reel for 2 and 69$/reel for 15 gauge. Great string, great price. Much nicer than Sensation

    I've been using polys the last few years. If I recall, I didn't try Alpha due to reported lack of durability.

    Takes longer to string Alpha Gut 2000 than to break it. Watched a guy break it in the warm-up. E-Matrix lasted twice as long. And it only lasted a set.

    Actually I just realized you were probably being sarcastic about its durability....my bad.

    Oh no, took 30 minutes to string, less than that to break. Btw, Alpha Gut 2000 is like 25 yrs old. Not saying everything old is weak and breaks easily.
