Default String Recommendation for Heavy ball player

I have been looking for a polyester string for my gamestyle for a very, very long time (about 4 years) and I havent found my "holy grail" yet. I am an aggressive baseliner who can play also play good defensive tennis when needed. I play with VERY heavy topspin off both ends (two handed backhand), and I have a fairly big serve (115+ on flat 1st serve). The traits I value most out of a string are control, spin, and tension maintainence. I generate enough power on my own and I rarely hit touch shots. Also, I would like a string that is somewhat easy on the arm- not multi easy, but soft-medium stiffness.

The strings I'm looking into are:

Topspin Cyberflash
Topspin Cyber Blue
Signum Pro Poly Speed Spin
SuperString Terminator V1
SuperString Pure Control

I have a somewhat good deal with SuperString, and the others are very inexpensive when bought in reels. Also, feel free to suggest any other string you

My current favorite string is Kirschbaum P2, but with the global economic crisis right now, and saving up for college, I'm trying to save every dollar I possibly can.

many thanks for the help

A string i tried and like was Pro Supex Blue Gear, might be worth a try, I personally found it offered good control and spin.

blue gear is too stiff for me. normally, i string my rackets between 54-57 lbs, depending on the surface, but with this stuff, not only does it have zero feel, i first strung it at 54 and it made my arm nearly fall off, then i tried it at 42, yes 42, and still too stiff. not a bad string for a hybrid, but im looking for a full string job.

Yes Blue Gear is stiff string, I personally had no problem with stiffness strung in full bed, but we're all different.

Kirschbaum P2 accutally come up as a stiffer string than Blue Gear in RacquetTech Database;

Pro Supex Blue Gear 1.25 Polyester 243 18.55
Kirschbaum P2 1.25 Polyester 257 15.48

Cyberflash i another good string, although that to is stiff,

Cool

I think that cyber flash 1.25 can be a good choice. Good price, if you buy a reel or mini reel and good quality.

greetings!
