Default Arm friendly string for spin and control (pro staff 97)

Looking for a string that will give me excellent control, not too bothered about durability, so something that keeps reasonable tension and breaks before going dead is not a problem as I just bought a stringing machine.

Mega plus if possible to avoid paying for marketing so open to more obscure brands but not discarding something more expensive if still value for money.

I want to experiment and try a few options, ideally make a list of 5 or so strings to try it out, what would you recommend? Thanks

Well, for arm frendly string, some synthetic gut, but my vote goes to Head Lynx string, 1.25mm. This string was a revelation for me, after lot of poly strings, this one is buttery comfort, change that you actually can feel.

Yonex Poly Tour Pro. I have same racquet, and after 4 hours playing I'm beginning to sure about how I buy a reel from this string. Comfortable feel, crisp and powerful, with enough spin and control. When this is not enough arm friendly, you need a hybrid with copoly mains and multifilament or syntetic gut crosses.

Yonex Poly Tour Pro (I prefer the 1.20) is soft, but I find it mushy, having poor feel. RS Lyon is comfortable, has excellent feel and control, though low power. Another soft poly that is highly regarded is Weiss Cannon Silverstring, but it does not provide much spin. However, the softest poly that I know of is Volkl V-Star, and it scored 87 out of 100 for spin and 80 for control according to TW.
After that, you're into multifilaments and synthetic gut.
