String for Extreme Tour

Saw a good deal for Mayami Tour Hex and Magic Twist also GRAPPLESNAKE CES Neon Dust/Liquid Neon, but never played with them.
At the moment I'm playing with Hyper G 1.20 in my ET(it's alright, maybe sometimes a bit unpredictable, but the spin is fantastic), but would like to hear your thoughts on this string and how do they compare to HG. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately there is no Lynx Tour where I'm from. Thanks anyway.
Confidential 1.20 , Revolution 1.20 , Tour Hex 1.23 , Big Spin 1.25 , btw I play with HG 1.20 as well at 24kg and I dont find it that unpredictable. However if you are bored and dont commit on finding the ball in front of you , the ball will fly to the moon. I suppose you like how the string plays because if launch angle is your problem there are tons of strings with lower launch angle.

Ok so , 32,6 balance - 330sw - Tour Bite 1.20 24 kg (Better than Hyper g 1.20).
Will try V Square 1.20 24kg as well just because I have a set.
Guys tbh , this is a totally different frame after lead at 12 and counterbalance lead at tail. I have never experienced such a drastic difference in a frame after lead. The change is massive , at 320 swingweight with 1.25 string(Confidential or Hyper g) , the racquet felt weak but now a total beast.

I have tried a bunch of strings in this racket. Today I tried the Grapplesnake M8. Very impressed!
Great first impression. Nice feel, super control with good spin. Strung at 43/41.

My specs weight 341g, balance 32,7cm and SW340

@JoyBoy, I recently put GRAPPLESNAKE CES Neon Dust/Liquid Neon in my Extreme Pro and love it. Strung at 52/53 (suggested to string 3# lower than usual in mains). Much better control for me with this set up. Previously used HG Soft @ 55#. Good pop and spin on serve, groundstrokes better controlled, less sailing long. Touch volleys felt great.

Lynx Tour vibrates at below 50 in the ET.

Yeap it does.
Sorry my mistake. My suggestion was for extreme tour auxetic version.

For extreme tour i would suggest sth softer and more slippery. Tour M8 is a good option. Razor code. Hyper G soft etc

Razor Code with Isospeed Baseline as a cross is a great option. Snapback deluxe!

I always come back to Hyper G Soft or T1 Black Knight.

Signum Pro X-Perience/T1 Ghost Wire
T1 BK/GW
HGS/GW

are also very nice String combos.
Tried Mayami Big Spin/Ghost Wire which i didn't like.
Hyper G and Head Lynx Tour were too harsh for my arm.
T1 Tour Status felt good aswell but didn't have enough playtime to say if it fits the racket.

So my choices would be Hyper G Soft 1.25 or T1 Black Knight @ 23kg (50,7 lbs)

I just noticed that happened to me once or twice when trying poly/poly hybrids. I string low but some of strings would vibrate in a weird way that bugged my arm. Did you notice this with any other strings?

Grapplesnake Tour Sniper is my preferred setup. Have tried about 20 different poly's. Best tension maintenance and great combo of soft and responsive.

Yes I noticed the ET vibrates with poly at low tension, all of them that I tried. It's more noticeable in the G360+ version vs. Auxetic.

Extreme Tour has a nice spin potential and shaped strings always seemed to me a bit unpredictable. I’ve tested 15+ strings with ET and I like round, a bit softer polys most. The best ones I’ve tried are Tourna Big Hitter Silver 1.30, Pro’s Pro Cyber Power 1.25 and Signum Pro Poly Plasma 1.23. I string at 24 or 23 kg.

I hybrided solstice power/evolution at 52x50 and began vibrating after about 3 hours. Have about 7 hours with cyclone 16 and feeling substantially better thus far.

Edit: 360+ version

Interesting. I had issues with rmp blast hybrided with volkl cyclone tour. I know it works well as it felt great in a used racquet I bought but vibrated when I tried it at lower tensions. Didn't come back to it as it's a costly combo. I hybrided diadem solstice power mains with genesis crosses. Didn't have any vibration issues but the diadem playability drops significantly after each session
