Discussion in 'Strings' started by mikeler, Mar 26, 2011.
Month ago to try out the small headsize. So far I am appreciating the advantages of it.
What were u using before that again? So u are using the Prestige Mid?
Ever try the PB10 Mid? Gets an awful lot of praise around here.
Biphase vs Multifeel
What is the basic difference between Technifibre Multifeel and X1 Biphase? Is the quality the same?
This guy - torres - is right. What's the point of a thread about poly stings where its originator writes:
That is the nature of poly strings. Shanks will snap them. No more full poly beds for me...for now.
We all have our preferences and set of knowledge and skills and its best to define them well rather than pretend we know everything.
Me neither. It's all personal preference, but for ME, it's not worth the tradeoff. The little bit of extra spin I get isn't worth it. I much prefer the feel and touch I get with a soft multi or gut main. After my racquet with full B5E snapped, I picked up my nat gut/copoly racquet and it was like "why did I ever leave you? "
For me, poly's work well as a cross with a nat gut or multi main. Gives a little extra spin and tames the power of the soft mains. That's all I will use them for from now on.
So the thread is about hybrids?
Has anyone tried Weiss Cannon Explosiv?
Post it in my multis thread.
Wow, you guys get a little bit tense sometimes.
These threads are an exploration not a pulpit.
Not quite sure what this thread is about just yet.
I smell grandiosity in the air!
I haven't tried X-1, but from what I've read it's more powerful than Multifeel, which I use often. X-1 is a true multi, where Multifeel has a central core that comprises 20% of its makeup. The filaments in X-1 are better quality. But Multifeel is an excellent string and has a great price.
Just going out of your way to post your opinion (and spend money and time) is more than enough. Keep up the good work!
When people's competence is stretched they get very tense.
Who knows if Torres is the priest that is going to confess you...
Grandiosity when backed by competence is excusable.
So what multifilaments would you recommend?
Remember that copolys should be strung in low to mid forties to get a softer feel. Information about this you can find in Guts and Glory tennis site and others.
Sorry, this should go in Mikelers multis
You should have started a review on ProBlend, it would make poly seem soft!
Yes, but humility, for me, is a better virtue. It suits better for when you win or when you lose, in tennis, and in life.
This is a forum: a place for sharing opinions. Unless mikeler is demanding that you accept his observations as gospel there's no need to get p-r-i-c-k-l-y over the subject. If you're going to dissent you should at least be cordial about it, not to mention add some substance to your argument. I do not find "he is wrong" to be evidence in and of itself.
*Part of p-r-i-c-k-l-y is a no-no word, apparantly...
Wow, is this Star Wars?
Thank you for your in depth discussion of polyester strings.
Wow, this Star Wars thing got me really, really confused, this question should also go in Mikelers Multis!
Yeah Prestige Mid. I considered the Black Ace as well, but I like combo of a little lower swingweight and higher static weight. I blame Bad Call for this switch because I always loved hitting with his prestige. lol.
My soft poly string experiences so far in the prestige :
Black Magic 17 - 9.5/10
Mosquite Bite 18- 7.5/10
B5e hybrid 17 - 8.5/10
Hexonic 18 - 6.5/10
Solinco Outlast 17
When I first got my PSTs, I hit with a Solinco Tour Bite, Solinco Vanquish hybrid that felt pretty nice.
I'm sorry, but you just admitted that you don't even use polyester strings, so you are out of your depth.
FWIW - one hitting partner who uses a Pure Drive also snaps poly at the grommet when catching one of my bomb serves near the top part of the hoop. could be that certain frames are more susceptible to this.
You may like the outlast then since it is inexpensive and soft. That is the word on the street.
I also liked polystar energy, but it may have been a little too soft.
Yes, well, mike should just issue threads about specific topics rather than trying to colonize areas of knowledge in which he has a self-proclaimed lack of interest.
Curious how you would rank Polystar Energy17? It plays well in dense patterns, IMO. So did Big Ace Micro 1.15
But, I'd say Hyperion is the one to beat. Not only soft, powerful, but control is top notch and tension maintenance it's a beast.
someone is taking the tennis forums too serious
Sharing opinions does not involve starting threads where one's own name seems to be the defining feature.
i'm thinking you and mikeler have history...no?
I think Mike earned the signature Mikeler's Polys due to the overwhelming success of Mikeler's Multis. Which I might add has 1,532 replies and 43,359 views at the moment.
Thank you for confirming that a franchise is the main aim of his threads.
The fact is that if people want to set up fan clubs around particular topics it might best belong in odds and ends.
Could it be good as a cross with gut as a main? How would it compare with Black 5 Edge as a cross string?
They should play a tennis match and the winner play Torres!
If Mike wins all, Torres and Bartleby finance Mike"s indoor court.
Lol, a franchise that doesn't make any money but has a free service of sharing information. For this he gets scolded by you.
At least we have pretty witty guys around, even if they fight online.
this one enjoyed reading Bart's posts in the now defunct section (unlike others that posted verbose fiction and tried to passed it on as factual only to be disputed by another who had actual experience).
Yes, well, there are many more things than money that people collect in order to enhance their prestige.
You have no idea how hard I just facepalmed myself. Djokovic and the Bryans used X-1 Biphase before going to their current hybrids. I would say they're pretty big boys.
Conflict is a normal part of human affairs that even children engage in, although adults like to write sentimental lyrics stating the opposite, as you've just amply demonstrated.
I would say he was not referring to these people, as you should very well know.
No take that back, this one almost broke my nose when I facepalmed. If you're too stupid to realize that someone is reviewing a string, likely strung at a tension you don't use, a racquet you've never played with, playing a style that you don't and possibly play on an entirely different surface, AND you go rushing to the store to get the string they tout as great....a fool and his money are easily parted. Your concern is noted, but it's quite frankly, stupid.
How are people on this forum so stupid? If anything, this thread will be a priceless tool for those who have arm problems. mikeler doesn't play with poly because he needs a soft string. Finding a super playing poly setup that doesn't hurt would be wonderful for people with TE and shoulder issues. Stop complaining that he doesn't know enough about polys: that's exactly why this thread is great. It's 100% objective.
