Well, over the last couple of months i've played with LOADS of strings. Lots of variety and it was interesting to see how i adjusted my game to different setups. Here we go... Mantis Power Poly + Mantis Power Synthetic I was extremely impressed at these strings and loved them. The poly provided decent spin and power. The synthetic brought a consistent, solid feel to my strokes. It felt like a crisper, more enjoyable tournament nylon/poly. I strung the Poly in the mains at 59 and the Synthetic in the Crosses at 55. Over all it was pretty close to what i was looking for but it just doesn't do it for me. I would definitely have this setup if i wanted the performance of a poly but with a more arm-friendly approach(cheaper than gut of course). It didn't give as much control as i wanted.:neutral: Mantis Power Poly + Mantis Cofort Synthetic Nope, WAY to powerful. I couldn't control my shots but the amount of FEEL was INCREDIBLE. Touch shots were a dream. SOLINCO tour bite B-E-A-UTIFUL. strung at 65, I finally found myself comfortable. There was good feel and crazy bite. Identical to ALU Spin. It did have a bit more pop to it though. SPIN SPIN SPIN. It was insane, I made on opponent crash into the back fence. Mantis Power Poly BINGO, I loved it has it was more control orientated than the Solinco string. Heaven is a place on earth. Might go up a couple of pounds for less power though. Feel free to post positive comments and your own opinions on these strings.
