What did the Japanese put in this string?

#1
It's the Pro's Pro Cyber Power white. It's apparently a plain, crisp, white poly. Then you bounce the ball on it and it has a hidden cushion, provided you nailed the tension. If you tension it a lb. too tight, it is a plain white poly. I've strung it in my MW racquet (see signature). The reel price is very affordable, but a step above most of Pro's Pro offerings. The set price is average.

The response off of the strings is of the connected variety. I haven't tried hybriding with it yet and I probably won't because it is working so well in this racquet. I don't feel the need to look for a better combo, but at the same time I still like my Cyber Flash/Kirsch SG hybrid best. One of these days I will relent my experimenting and string both MWs with CF/Kirsch SG and claim my happiness. But if you're shopping for a white poly in 1.20, you should definitely add this PPCP to your list.

I think your right about the "lbs" comment
too low and its a rocket launcher
Too high and its dull
Edited - I went through the frustating phase of finding the good side of this string
worked for me on a 16/19 h.extreme.pro 50-52lbs range

Do you consider Cyber Power White smooth enough for a cross string with multi/syn gut mains?
I think Cyber Power/Multi would be too mushy. But CP/Syngut might be nice. Full CP is really so good though that I won't even bother trying to improve it by hybriding. And the reel price is the same as most synguts. Synguts do hold tension longer though.

CP is very smooth, good for hybriding either way.

My first try was perfect @51/50 in my older MW racquet (signature) with a drop weight. Then I switched my tensioner to a WISE and I tried a lb. lower @50/49, but it's slightly too tight. So next I'll try 49/48 in my slightly softer MW and hope I can tap into that cushy goodness again.
