Hi all, I recently just got back into the game and recently picked up an older gamma stringer (6000 I think?) for 200 bucks!! So my question is, can someone recommend me a good string? It's kinda overwhelming how many different types of strings are out there. Strings that I have played recently are head's sonic pro, fxp, and syn gut. I liked the fxp but popped the srings in less than two hrs. The sonic pro had a great pocket feel for me but a tad bit pricey. I have also used goosen's og sheep 17, which is ok at best.
I am a hard hitting baseliner with heavy top spin. Thanks in advance guys!

Yes, Tour Bite has a more metallic feel closer to ALU. The BHB7 and Solinco Barb Wire have that hard plastic type construction.
Bhbr and bhb7 are great winter strings. Soon as the temp started heating up the balls went sailing. Volkl cyclone was to stiff for me during the winter and what do you know? They have been perfect as temperatures have been rising.
Cyclone is terribly brittle. The only gauge I like of that is 18 gauge, and even then, I'd have to break it in a great deal.
Haven't tried Big Hitter Blue Rough, only the smooth. The smooth was okay, but not very high performing.
Blue has some similarities to black. The blue rough has a similar coating to 7.
Ah, I see. I felt the regular Blue was a bit too muted. Like it wanted to ping or ring, but stayed muted instead.
