Softest, most arm and shoulder/elbow friendly poly?

Did you get to try YPTA/Velocity?

Ever time I go back to VCT for two days in my PA+ frames my elbow yells at me. [emoji3525].

A teammate asked to hit with one of my frames yesterday and he tried both the VCT and Lux Gut/YPTA setups . He didn't have much to say about the strings but he did say "man your frames are heavy and hard to swing " [emoji23]
I had a go on Ghostwire (18) / Velocity (17) and it is a very good combo, FB GW was too stiff so I replaced the crosses with Velocity. I really really like that hybrid - great control, spin and softness - I like the feel a lot. Strings (mains) move a little. Now the verdict is how many hours it will hold up.

I am exited for Velocity as a cross, I think next in line is Cyberflash / Velocity and YPTA / Velocity (black)

Thanks @g4driver for your suggestions (y)

Has anybody here tried kirschbaum pro line evolution in a hybrid/full bed? How’s the softness at a mid-high 40’s tension?

you should try hybrids with VCT mains and thin slick copoly cross like cream or revolve. I used to do gut poly at 50/47 and VCT revolve at 40/37 feels softer, more powerful, more spinny with amazing ball pocketing sensation that is otherworldly. Absolutely love it and my arm never hurts.

I have been back to full bed of VCT for a few weeks, no pain. It was just an overuse issue. I am only hitting about 4 days a week now instead of 7-9 times a week was nothing to do but play tennis in April / May/ early June.

I have YPTA, Revolve and GW in reels and just got 18 packs of Cream in last week (had to stock up before it goes out of stock again). I've been using VCT for 8 years as a full need just never hit that much in my life. I might put GW in my playtest frame, but think YPTA and Cream are better suited for non edged strings.

To everyone who has tried pro x-perience, do you need to string it higher than a stiffer poly or will the same tension suffice? I noticed the actual stiffness rating of the string is pretty stiff. Does it have the characteristics of a stiff poly and feel soft? Or does it have all the same negatives as a soft poly?

Gracelyne is releasing a new soft poly that is very comfortable. We don’t even have a name for it yet. If you pay shipping, we will give you a free set of string to try out.
