Pro Supex String

Anyone had experience with this brand of string, there seems to be a lot of it on a selling site? They claim it's similar to Luxilon?

I'm using blue gear and big ace.

Colors are nice.

BG has hex notches for extra spin. Hasn't kept tension very good.

BA feels good not too harsh and gives plenty of spin. I like it so far.

The above strings are not comparable to luxilon alu.

i use the power poly soft and it is AWESOME.

keeps tension pretty well but loses playability after about 7 hours.

but it is currently in my setup for tourneys right now, that is, until i find a better co-poly.

eunjam, on the Pro Supex Power Poly Soft - which gauge do you have and what tension and frame? Can you compare your reference stringing tension to another string such as Prince sdw/D or POSG?

I have found the Pro Supex Big Ace to be a soft, pretty durable, playable poly as the main in a hybrid with SG. Thanks

I was offered a sponsorship with them and I tried the Blue Gear, Premier Ace, Big Ace, Poly Power Soft, and their multi...I really didn't like any of them, they seemed too harsh but may be alright in a hybrid...if any, I would go with the premier ace with a multi or synthetic in the crosses...

I have used the Pro Supex Premier Ace 17G, the Pro Supex PF Hybrid blend, and the Pro Supex Original Synthetic Gut. I really like the Premier Ace 17G and the Original Synthetic Gut. All of them string easy and are cost effective to change regular.

gotwheels, i use 17g main 58lbs. and a cheap Syn Gut 17g 60lbs for cross on a PD Cortex 100 sq. in.(quite frankly, i don't even know the name of the syn gut. i traded for it.)

i have used and searched for many different setups. but i have always used a 17g main poly/17 g cross syn gut at the same tension.

the different poly's i have used include, luxilon, SPPP, cyberflash, big ace, pro kennex.

the different syn's i have used including multis: gosen micro 17, alpha, Prince Syn Gut non dura, wison reaction, wilson nxt, pro supex multifibre, technifibre NRG2, and even leoina 66.

i just love the dwell time and amount of spin i can create with the added power and feel with my current set up.

i didn't like other setups because it was either stiff, too quick of tension loss and/or too quick of loss of playability.

i do have my own stringer, but i would prefer my strings last more than 2 full practice sessions or matches. basically 5+ hours.

even though i am happy now, i am definitely still searching for an even better setup because i know it's out there. that is without paying for gut.

***yeah, yeah.....ever since i've been stringing my own rackets, i have become a total string setup SNOB!!! and damn proud of it.

I totally agree with you here. I have been using the Pro Supex Premier Ace 17 gauge string for a couple of months now and I LOVE IT! This string gives me good control, lots of spin, excellent durability and it holds its tension fairly well. It also have the best price/performance ratio among the other co-polyester strings out there.

BTW,

Did you like the P.F. Blend? How is the durability with this hybrid? Is it worth a try for $4.95 per set??
Thank You in advance.

eunjm, Thanks for the information. Do you string on a constant pull type stringer or a spring tension lockout? I'll have to string up some Pro Supex Power Poly Soft. Thanks

I really enjoy playing with the P.F. Blend. It plays soft and comfortable. I like a tad bit more power from my Hybrid but hey for $5! I cut it out at about 12 hours to try the syn gut. I am a flat hitter and rarely break strings so I can't really comment on the long term durability. Great value!

Got my set of premier ace today and just finished stringing it up. strings a bit stiffer than cyber and SPPP, has a much nicer orange colour than plasma. hopefully has less power!! feels like it will.

Will hit with it in the morning and see how it goes. I have pretty high hopes.

Ok Providing this stuff has a decent life its a great string, sounds great, doesnt move, good spin & control and very low powered. Will probably go up another 1lb or 2 on the next string job to lower the power just a touch more.

Looks like I have another great value for money poly to stock.

I used the PF Blend over the summer. I found that the string really dampened the stringbed, which was great for me because it was a poly (mains) that was comfortable for me while I had tennis elbow. I'm not sure what exact string the crosses are, but they are super soft and don't last very long (I go through strings very quickly though). Stringing the crosses was like stringing with wet spaghetti! I also got a lot of comments on the colors of the string - the mains are orange and the crosses are like a dull gray. All that said, I would use them again. Pro Supex is a good string at an awesome price. Dig around and find their US distributor on the net - e-mail them and they'll send you packets of whatever string that you want to try.

man... i just got a racquet that had a tecnifibre redcode 16 string... but after like an hour or so, I did a mishit and broke the string on the very top grommet.... i feel like a XXXXXXXX......

but i have a premier ace so hopefully it will work out better..

what are the tensions do u guys use for premier. i mean it depends on the people. but what would you guys suggest

P.S. i found redcode on my k 95 too stiff i guess it was like mid-high 50lbs.

let me know!! thanx
