good idea to get going on a string discussion, if you play something new or you love or hate a string then let us know here.

This is what I wrote about it on TT:
Luxilon M2 Pro – the first thing I noticed is that it feels nothing like ALU. Not even close. It’s a lot more comfortable, and plays like a softer poly. The best poly I’ve tried at net, and hits a very nice dropshot. Not what I was hoping for from the baseline though, and died pretty quickly to boot. If this wasn’t a Lux string, I’d probably think it was decent: as it was, it was a huge disappointment.
I don't like the softer polys much, which is the main reason it wasn't going to be for me. I think it's horribly overpriced on the back of ALU.
I tried two of these 'multi-monos', the other being Tecnifibre Promix. If I was testing blind, I would have called M2 a poly, and Promix a multi.
The only thing that made it stand out from a soft poly like SPPP or Blackcode (n.b. that I tried both of those in a hybrid with PSGD, whilst M2 was a full bed) is that it had better touch on the soft shots. From the baseline there was nothing special. It's supposed to stiffen when you hit hard, but the only time I noticed anything was when I really cracked it for a winner (and to be honest, even then it may have been in my head).
However, it is comfortable for a poly. It's hard to say exactly how comfortable to someone who has had arm problems, but I didn't experience any discomfort in a full bed at 56 whereas I've had a few twinges with some of the stiffer polys in a syn gut hybrid at 54/58.
poly force imo is one of the best polys and pacific tough gut is a quality gut a little bit stiffer than prime gut my fave which is a little bit crisper than VS.
A really good combo, I'll have it if you wanna sell it, thinking of trying pacific prime gut mains, poly cross again as I could dosome amazing things on serve with it but struggled a bit on my fh....but that was with the kps and prob nothing to do with strings and it will prob be different with my VT 95.......
Is this hybrid a bit more all court/serve and volley orientated? Or it's absolutely equally well suited for b-line bashing?
