    As I put up this post the song "Too Much Time on My Hands" by Styx keeps going through my mind.

    I'm thinking of going to a full poly from my current Tour Bite 1.20/OG Sheep Micro Super 16L set up therefore I'm thinking of moving to a softer poly than the TB.

    That being the case I started looking at what a couple of the T-W Playtester's Favorite Strings were. Next thing you know I'm typing what each player's Top 3 strings were and from that I give you this list:

    Volkl Cyclone: 1 1 2 2 3
    Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution: 1 2 2 2 3
    Kirschbaum Pro Line X: 1 2 2
    Luxilon 4G: 1 2 3
    Polyfibre TCS: 1 3 3
    Signum Pro Poly Plasma: 2 2 3
    Luxilon Savage: 1 1
    Weiss Cannon Mosquito Bite: 1 2
    Babolat RPM Blast: 1
    Kirschbaum Pro Line II: 1
    Natural Gut: 1
    Pacific Natural Gut: 1
    Tecnifibre X-One Biophase: 1
    Wilson NXT: 1
    Babolat Xcel Premium: 2
    Luxilon BB ALU Rough: 2
    WeissCannon XPlosiv!: 2
    Yonex Poly Tour Pro: 2
    Babolat Hurricane: 3
    Gamma Zo Verve: 3
    Kirschbaum Black Shark: 3
    LTec Premium SS: 3
    MSV Focus Hex: 3
    Polyfibre Black Venom: 3
    Tecnifibre NRG2: 3
    Tourna Big Hitter Black 7: 3
    Wilson NXT Tour: 3

    The numbers represent what place (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) that string was chosen by the playtester. ie: for Kirschbaum Pro Line X, one Playtester had it as their 1st choice, another Playtester had it as their 2nd choice, and a third Playtester also had it as their 2nd choice.

    Anyway, thought it was interesting to see their favorites so I thought I'd share.

    Another option, if you already like TB is to put a softer or thinner poly in the crosses.

    Cool. Save me the hassle of doing something similar.

    There's no Kirschbaum Pro Poly Plasma. I think you meant Signum Pro Poly Plasma?

    Or just use TB soft?
