What exactly is a co-poly? Whats the difference between a co-poly and a poly.
I think co-poly is a marketing term. It plays and breaks like syn guts.
Co-poly is NOT a marketing term.
To the OP: Co-polys are polyester string with other additives added to it. They tend to play softer than traditional polyester strings. Some call them 3rd generation polys.
that's the technical explanation. but to average users (4.5 and lower), there is a lot of mis-marketing of this material and a lot of them play just like syn gut.
I was looking for something that has the same controlled, low powered feel as a poly but with more comfort and feel.
What are some low powered, non poly strings? Also looking for something with control and feel.
Co-Polys are just that !
3.rd and 4.th generation softer feeling polys with better tension and elasticity maintenance
What are some good co-polys?
Cyberflash, Cyber Blue
Pro Supex Big Ace
Higher range of "dough":
Technifibre Black Code
Signum Pro Hyperion, Tornado
Ok. So copolys offer the same control as poly but are softer and offer more feel?
Signum Pro Tornado
Signum Pro Hyperion
Signum Pro Pooly Plasma
No, not quite the same amount of control, but better softer feel.
Still more control and less power then a multi or synthetic?
Yeahhhh....but there are also different multis.
MultiFell is a hard multi, Promix likewise.
Xcel Standard id a VERY soft mushy multi.
Xcel Power and NRG2 is in between / nice and crisp.
You have to try them to judge them
What would be a good cross for Black Code in the mains? NXT?
*Insert* You cannot be serious!!!
A co polymer is a polymer formed through the use of more than one monomer. It has to do with how the chains are formed. Don't worry about the difference, just worry about how it feels to you when you play.
We're talking Co-Polyester. Don't be fooled though, many people make this mistake. Clearly make sure that you buy a co-polyester if your looking for something with the same control as a poly but a little softer. Co-polymers are nowhere near that.
