    Any comments on the differences?

    Specially for a player who likes to string at low tensions and is looking for power and spin mainly (but still want a monofilament).

    I'd say that CB has more power and less bite than BC. I've hybrided both with Forten Sweet 17 or PSGD 17 and can string BC(and the crosses) a few lbs lower because of the extra spin and superior ball pocketing coming off the string bed. In fact, I still have half a reel of CB but have already completely switched over to BC. I think the newer textured twisted polys are worth looking at too.
  3. Black Code is a good string, Cyber Blue feels more like a synthetic gut compared. Much less spin and bite as NA2000 states. Frankly, I don't think any of the Topspin strings compare to the better polys. I just tried Cyber Black as well and was extremely unimpressed. I would love to play one of these cheaper polys and save myself some money, but the performance simply isn't there...

    I have strung my PS 6.0 95 @ 53 with BC and my K 6.1 95 18x20 with CB @ 53...
    The BC is 1.18 and the CB 1.25. I concur that the CB feels a bit like plastic but I am not sure it is stiffer. I think also that the BC has more bite and spin but that may have to do with the fact it is thinner gauge and strung on a 16x18 racquet.

    I have tried the MSV Focus Hex 1.18 and the PL II 1.15 and I think these two feel softer than the BC and CB...
